I love decorating for Christmas! I can't wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving when we will put our Christmas tree up and decorate outside. Brian always lines the roof of the house with lights, and we also display our big Airblown snow globe and a huge Airblown Santa, along with some deer and snowmen. My absolute favorite Christmas decoration is our life-sized Grinch by Gemmy Industries.
Our Grinch has been around for several years, and while Gemmy no longer makes this particular product, they make several other decorations that will light up your yard and deck your halls this holiday season. One product in Gemmy's line of Christmas decorations are Lightshow Pathway Markers. They come in assorted styles like Lollipops, Mickey Ears, and Mickey Ear Lollipops.
With energy-efficient LED lights that blink and flash, these Pathway Markers are perfect for decorating paths and walkways. We received a set of the Lollipop Pathway Markers to decorate our front walkway with.
Bring your yard or lawn to life with the colors of the season! Line your paths and walkways with this festive and fun lollipop display!
The pathway markers were so easy to set up! All we had to do was attach the posts and the stakes, stick them in the ground, and plug them in. They look so cool in front of our house!
The Lightshow Pathway Markers retail for $39.99 and can be found at Fred Meyer, Home Depot, Kmart, Menards, Sears, Target.com and Walgreens. At the time of this review, I found them on Amazon.com for $27.95, which is a great price for these!
Also in the lineup of Gemmy's Christmas decorations are holiday greeters. You can greet your guests at the door with popular characters such as Frosty, Dora and Spongebob. These loveable holiday plush are over 2 feet tall!
We received a Frosty the Snowman Holiday Greeter to greet our guests with this holiday season. He has already taken a spot right by the front door.
Rylie and her friend Cole had a great time playing with Frosty earlier today. Just to give you an idea of his size, here he is with a 4 and a 3 year old...
The kids remembered from the Frosty movie how all the kids are supposed to follow him down the street, so they lined up behind Frosty for the parade.
The Frosty Holiday Greeter retails for $29.99 and can be found at Kmart and Walgreens.
Not only does Gemmy make some great holiday decorations, they also make some fun novelty items that would make great Christmas gifts. You might remember our recent review of My Pet Firefly, which is one of these fun items. Another fun lifelike pet by Gemmy is the Butterfly Collection.
Experience the magic of the interactive butterfly illusion so real you’ll have look twice! The Butterfly Collection consists of realistic looking butterflies in glass jars.
These aren't just fake butterflies in a jar. They are much more fun! The butterflies flutter around when you tap the top of the jar. They really do look real! So real, in fact, that when my mom first saw one of these at my aunt's house last summer, she asked if she feeds it sugar water. No lie.
The Butterfly Collection retails for $14.99 each and can be found at Lowes, Kmart, Cracker Barrel, CVS, BJ's Wholesale Club, Walgreens.
