Walmart Christmas 2012


Recommended Posts

Stopped by Walmart yesterday...They have a nice selection of everything Christmas this year...Had 100 ct lights at $2.88....Thinking of picking up the 16' Santa that Lowes had last year...they have it for $199 this year not bad...

They also had a nice Micky Mini cart...Cant remember the price but going to have to pick that one up to add to the collection...

This is an ebay auction that has the picture... http://www.ebay.com/itm/CHRISTMAS-Disney-MICKEY-and-MINNIE-MOUSE-SLEIGH-Airblown-Inflatable-NIB-/290792013613?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43b48dff2d

I have been buying from Walmart on line instead of in the stores.

For Halloween they started making them down early and made "package" deals with free shipping.

I think I am going to wait to see what they do with their Christmas on line. Have a feeling they might do the same and save a lot of money that way.

gmac,

They are both Gemmy, I would think they are of the same quality.

The one at Walmart is Lowes last years model, that is why Walmart has it cheaper this year.

The ones from Garden Ridge have been of less quality I have seen in the past. I personally won't buy their inflatables any more.

It sure is great having a resident inflatable expert here on PC......I mean this as a compliment and really appreciate your input I returned the 14 ft Santa to Lowes and ordered the one from Walmart and saved 50 Bucks.......Thanks again for your input

Speaking of tieing them down what would you recomend to do over and above the normal tie downs that come with the blowups cuz this is going to be almost 3 times taller that any other inflatabe that I used before?

BTW I saw some pics of your display and its incredable

Thank you for the comments on our display.

As above, you can use sandbags if you can't stake them well to the ground.

We use Tent stakes instead of the stakes that come with them. We also use heavier twine most of the time on them. All of our stakes are 12" long. We use them on all Inflatables. Faster, easier, stronger and last forever. I buy them by the case on Ebay.

We have some 20' inflatables that we put a line around the middle of them and than tie to that instead of tying to the Inflatable itself. That seems to work better, lets them move without tearing them up.

The big ones are great but you have to work on getting them just right.

We leave our Inflatables up 24/7 once they are set up, even in the wind and we have been alright. You might not want to leave them up in the wind but in some cases I don't have a choice. (ones on my roof)

I know this is an old topic but yesterday I went to Lowe's, just to see.  They had one 14 foot santa on 75% off.  Price came to $62.  I told my wife we had to have it but she thought it was too much money.  I bought in anyways (sofa last night), this morning I showed her this thread and I am out of trouble today.  Thanks for the help you didn't know you were giving me.  Can't wait to add the new santa to my display next year.
