For a few years now I have been an avid fan and collector of the Lemax Spooky Town Collection. In case you haven’t heard of them or seen them, they come out in August each year in Michael’s stores and usually occupy an entire aisle of the seasonal items. There you will find a number of animated items with lights and sound effects that revolve around Halloween and horror that includes things like haunted mansions, graveyards, mummy’s tombs, and ghostly pirate ships. The line of products also includes smaller desktop pieces and individual items that includes vampires, witches, mummies, and a collection of materials like trees, fences, and tombstones that enable collectors to create their own Spooky Towns.
The 2009 Spooky Town line has just been announced which includes 72 new items which includes ten new haunted houses. Online orders for this collection begin in February and will receive a 20% discount. The additions and retired list can be viewed here.
