Little Cute, Little Scary

Little Cute, Little Scary

Mashups are almost always good.  The television show Glee created all kinds of song mashups that garnered them enough praise to create six whole seasons of content.  The movie Zombieland mashed up horror and comedy so well that it resonated with fans long enough for them to get a sequel made ten years later, which comes out in theaters today, October 18th.  In fact, horror and comedy often get mashed up because they both tap into very primal emotions, fear and joy.  We have a tiny dose of that today with these pieces from Lemax.

#84331 Eerie-Go-Round

Now the pieces we're talking about today aren't new, but they are some of our favorite pieces.  For instance, the Eerie-Go-Round, which we have written about before, is a perfect piece for the price.  It's a carousel, but upon closer inspection, you start to see the leering grin on the giant pumpkin, the animals the kids get to ride are rats and crows and there are skeletons hanging out on top.

#85310 Squash Shack

This piece is a fairly standard lighted building, but with a lot of charm.  Much like the old woman who lived in a shoe, the residents of the Squash Shack are making the most of their circumstances.  They happen to have found or grown a massive pumpkin and have created a cozy little house out of it.  However, it does look like the house might very well belong to a witch, judging by the decor and the guard cat.  So, it might be best to keep ones distance.

#53203 Pumpkin Wagon

 Finally, we have a simple scarecrow driving his already carved pumpkins home in his appropriately named, Pumpkin Wagon.  Not only is this odd because scarecrows shouldn't be doing anything more than scaring crows or helping Dorothy, but he also managed to carve nine whole pumpkins!  I can only ever manage to carve one, let alone nine.  It does look like he should feed his horse a bit more often, but then again, he probably has to stop the horse from eating his insides.

All these pieces make great additions to existing villages or can be used to create a little scene with minimal effort, but a lot of character.  Both the Squash Shack and the Eerie-Go-Round require power, so they will need to be setup within reach of an outlet, but the Pumpkin Wagon is power free and adds plenty of spooky cheer.

Things are getting a little crazy over at the ol' Gift Spice Office.  We have July 4th coming up and the family, food and fireworks that come with that.  We have a new promotion starting that day as well to help make the day even more special.  In addition to that, Lemax has allowed us to sell an exclusive line of drink ware that most of you have probably already seen.  We wanted to take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to talk about these for a minute because they are very cool.
