September may have just begun, but the retail industry is already getting us prepped and ready for the pumpkin-filled, haunt-friendly season this year with new releases.
We’ve already seen pumpkin spice products hitting shelves, such as pumpkin spice hard seltzer and pumpkin spice Milano cookies, plus all sorts of new costumes, including plenty of animal costumes for your furry friends available at PetSmart and Petco.
To add to the festive spookiness associated with Halloween, there’s a lawn ornament you really must get. That’s right, zombie and skeleton flamingo lawn ornaments are a thing, and we’re sure the best-decorated houses will be showing them off this Halloween.
Amazon is selling the Pink Inc. 2 Halloween Skeleton Yard Flamingos Lawn Decor Ornaments for $25.95, and each set contains two black plastic flamingos with white skeleton markings. One of the flamingo skeletons is 20 inches tall and 11 inches wide, and the other is 15 inches tall and 13 inches wide.
In terms of anatomical accuracy, these skeletons are not too bad, unlike some Halloween decorations. Here’s the skeleton of a real bird, a ratite called the rhea.
The biologist in me shakes my head whenever I see a Halloween spider skeleton decoration since spiders don’t have bones — just that hard exoskeleton.
For example, the Crazy Bonez Spiders Figurine at Wayfair for $54.99? Yeah, that’s not anatomically accurate.
But it’s all in good scary fun, right? And given that, it turns out there are some pretty cool additional options if you like the look of zombie-style skeleton flamingos.
Or you can go for a different look. This one is the Forum Zombie Flamingo Accessory, available on Amazon for $21.81. It has a bit more color — check out those red eyes — and even a some muscled texture.
Or you could get this pair of zombie flamingos, which includes one standing flamingo and one feeding flamingo, currently starting at $28.17 per set. Given that they are zombies, we don’t really want to know what these creepy-looking dudes are feeding on.
Or heck, how about taking it a step further and dressing up your undead flamingo lawn ornament like a different ghoulish entity? The Pink Inc. Witch SKEL-A-Mingo Flamingo Lawn Ornament is $31.79 on Amazon right now.
The Bright Zeal Metal Pink Flamingo features a solar-powered LED crackle glass globe that collects sunlight and then turns on automatically at night. It costs $23.99 on Amazon.
If you’re eyeing one of these for your Halloween-themed display, you’ll certainly turn some heads from people driving down the street. Who knew there were so many undead flamingo options?
