Films like A Christmas Story and Home Alone have certainly become holiday classics over the years, but they can't compare to the staying power of Rankin/Bass' 1964 stop-animated classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer which turns 50 this year. The characters are instantly recognisable to generations of fans, and now you can show your appreciation for at least one of them with this 5m tall inflatable Bumble on your front lawn.
But why stop at just one? A small army of these Abominable Snow Monsters on your lawn would be an easy way to make your home look a lot more festive, and remind your neighbours of just how obsessive you can get. For $US400 it includes an electric blower that inflates the towering character in just 15 minutes and keeps it from collapsing, as well as internal lighting that keeps him glowing all night long.
