12 Halloween Inflatables to Spook Up Your Yard

Spooky season is upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about things like Halloween safety and kids’ costumes. You might want to jazz up your yard this year and make your home creepier, weirder or just more festive. Halloween inflatables are a fun way to add a little pizazz and festivity to your lawn.

Here are some of the best Halloween inflatables to consider this year.

What to look for in the best Halloween inflatables

Most Halloween inflatables are large to catch a child’s attention from far away, whether that be enticing or potentially chill-inducing. You’ll want a Halloween inflatable that’s made from a durable material such as waterproof and weatherproof plastic to withstand the elements, as October can offer up unpredictable weather.

Finally, find an inflatable that speaks to your Halloween vibe. Maybe it’s as something as a simple, friendly pumpkin or maybe it’s something terrifying like a family of spiders. Whatever it is, commit to the bit.
