October is finally here and it's time to get in the spirit of the spookiest season. According to Google Trends, searches for "best place for Halloween decor" are up 150% right now, with the holiday just over three weeks away. Target loyalists know that the retailer is a one-stop shop for nearly everything, especially fun decor finds. The latest item flying off of shelves? A life-size gold skeleton.
One Target-shopping TikTok user posted a video — which has garnered over 54,000 views — telling users that "this is their sign to run to Target" to get it. And it seems like people listened.
This 5-foot gold skeleton is just as cool as it is creepy. It currently holds a perfect five-star rating, with 98% of reviewers giving it full praise for its quality. And it's not just the reviews that are glowing, it's the pictures that shoppers are attaching to them. Some have even given the set of bones a name.
"This guy is so cute, lightweight and easy to adjust his positioning," wrote one reviewer. "I named mine Jack."
From front porch setups to unexpected dinner guests, shoppers are loving the fact that they can adjust the poses of the frightening mannequin. "Forget Elf on the Shelf, this is my new favorite holiday tradition," one reviewer wrote alongside a picture of the skeleton doing the dishes. "I’m having just as much or more fun than my 10-year-old and 6-year-old kids with this! Worth every penny."
For some shoppers, the fun started before they even left the store.
The skeleton can be placed both indoors and outdoors and can even be hung if you prefer. The chilling product is so popular that it's currently completely sold out! But don't worry, it will be available online again by mid-October, so you won't miss out on the Halloween fun!
If you're waiting for what just might be the hottest piece of decor this season to be restocked, we rounded up other fun decorations from Target's seasonal section below that you can shop right now, either online or in-store.
