Web News - New Halloween Category - Halloween Inflatables

We have already received hundreds of new Halloween products with hundreds, and hundreds, and hundreds, more due to arrive within the next two weeks.

As previously mentioned, with our product lines expanding and some of our product categories now containing up to 20 pages of products, we are breaking out groups of products into new Halloween categories.

Our latest new Halloween category is called Halloween Inflatables. Since not everyone likes the darker side of Halloween, and in response to a number of customer requests, we are actively expanding our line of colorful inflatable products.

Do stay tuned as we continue to add new Halloween products, and new Halloween categories.

By the way, yesterday we received a large order of laser lighting effects and will be adding them to the site soon. People have been asking us for years to stock Halloween Lighting Effects. Well . . . we heard you. they are in stock and will be published in our Online Store soon.

Meanwhile, we are continuing to work on the 2012 Dark Zone, and I am pleased to report that things are starting to shape up nicely. When you visit us, I am sure you will love this year's Dark Zone experience.
