    These are far superior to all the inflatable Christmas decoration crap that's out now.

    Amen to that! I see those horrible blow-up figures put up before Christmas and Halloween and then the very next day they're deflated and generally stay that way until the holiday and they're packed back up.

    The plastic ones seem like a pain to store but at least they don't have that problem. Though I'd be afraid they'd blow away or the dog might chew on them.

    Why is there a throat lozenge hanging in the window?

    What Kevin Miller and Gamera said. Inflatable figurines are the absolute height of tackiness, though this Anon always felt the blow-molds were tacky in their own right.

    Most outdoor "holiday" decorating is. It rapidly degenrates into a very juvenlie form of attention-seeking. "I'm gonna get on the local news again this year with an even BIGGER display!"

    Halloween is bad enough but considering what Christmas originally celebrated, the excessive decorating becomes incredibly vulgar.

    Still, blow molds are still apparently widely popular -and- available. The Spruce did an article on this.
