I don’t know how they do it but every year Big Lots strikes first and strikes hard with new animatronic Halloween decorations and this season is no exception. I have reviewed new items in the past from Big Lots and it always seems to be a little KB Toys to the Toys R Us, if you catch my drift. Very much a discount store with many of it’s items hovering close to their expiration date or selling cookware from celebrity chefs who fell from grace receiving facial wounds from a prostitute. (that’s a real thing)
I think where I am going with this is Big Lots isn’t known for high-end products. But that is when Halloween hits and holy cats, I dare you to find better for the cost. The aisles of Arizona teas from 1999 seem to drift away when the Halloween season comes around. And let’s just talk about the Halloween season at Big Lots! It starts in July!
Well, I can go on and on waxing love for this retail chain but tonight it is all about the queen of the dance; the Werewolf Rug. This beast comes in around $70 when I purchased it but looking now, they discounted the item down to $50 and for most households, this is still not even the Halloween season yet. Oh well, I still love this and buyer’s remorse won’t hit until December 23rd.
The notable cool features are the eyes which light up blue or red and has the iconic wolf howl. This can be activated through touch or even motion so you can also test out the new defibrillator on grandma when she visits.
All in all, it’s a cool product to start the season off with and I am going to try really hard not to do a posthumous Burt Reynold’s impression, if you know where I am going.
Watch my review and in the comments tell me your favorite werewolf movie. It’s a tough one for me but The Howling still gets me today. How about you, Bright Boy?
Awesome video, Bill! My favorite werewolf movie is “Silver Bullet.”
HEY WILL/BILL!!! SO far behind on the posts – my life is CHAOS (not in the good, Halloweeny way, sadly…) But I’m LOVIN’ the content…! No way I can afford the rug for now (BUMMER, ’cause it be the Bee’s Knees for Sure!), but I will say my ‘nostalgic’ fave has to be WOLFEN… Albert Finney, and a bunch of Native Americans exacting their POUNDS of FLESH…! (And yes, THANK YOU for not goin’ “Burt” on us… 😉 Keep The Faith, Brother – Can’t Wait for the Next Entry! 🙂
