Where to buy fake, pre-lit pumpkins?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy those fake, pre-lit jack-o-lanterns but I can't find anywhere that sells them. And I don't know what to search foreither because "plastic jack-o-lantern" gets me nothing. I am talking about these:

Search for Funkins.  The pumpkins look nice but you would have to carve them which is really easy and light them.

 

I already have a Funkin, but right now I'm just looking for more of these little plastic, pre-carved, pre-lit ones. I know I've seen these at Walmart for like $10 but I don't know how to find them online. Thank you though.

They range from 12-36 inches depending on the model.  We used to do the intricate carving, but have been collecting the same model as you're looking for for time/cost sake.   

 

These are what I would consider expensive initially, then become very cost effective if you can re-use for a few years.  We've taken the same approach and have been collecting about 3-4 every year at the department stores.   We found a pretty good deal at Walmart this year, but still had to pay about $15 a piece.  I think they're about 30" high.     We have looked but havent been able to find them on-line either.  They dont even seem to pop up on ebay much for some reason.

 

Good luck, and I hope you share the link if someone comes through for you.

I think I may have found a source at a fantastic price if you really want them, but then you may have to buy a few more than you wanted - how many thousand pumpkins would you like?        http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/plastic-jack--o--lantern.html      Perhaps you should contact them, they have modified their minimum orders for others.   At pennies a piece, you may be able to organize a group buy of a few hundred.


There are some smaller ones available on this site.  http://www.discountdecorativeflags.com/servlet/the-4022/halloween%2Cfall%2Cautumn%2Cjack-o'lantern%2Cpumpkin%2Cbriarwood-lane-garden/Detail?gdftrk=gdfV23098_a_7c917_a_7c6564_a_7cS5K6_d_784924907088#.UvBOhRSA0_4htt

Thank you very much for your links. It's shocking to me how difficult these are to find, especially since I consider them a staple of Halloween. Those Dollar Tree ones look super good, maybe they'll come back in stock.

These are definitely a Walmart item.  I picked up a pile of them (in the smaller 12"-18" sizes) at 75% off the day after Halloween and haven't seen them available anywhere else.  Unfortunately, I pulled all of the tags and manufacturer identification info from the mine before putting them in storage, so that's about all I can offer for now.

I see you're from PA. If you ever get to the Lancaster / Strasburg area check out Almost Paradise Crafts (2975 Lincoln Hwy E, Gordonville, PA). They usually have the larger blow mold pumpkins in stock year round. I think we got a lot of our smaller ones from places like Walmart and Walgreens during the season. You can always hit up eBay if you want them before the season.
