    Default Advantages/Disadvantages of Inflatables

    Some of the inflatables look cute, but the only thing is that they break easily. They can be stored easily. They don't take up too much room. They don't entertain you as much as blow molds do. Inflatables look like garbage on your lawn during the day. It's just a waste of energy to keep them up. It kind of pollutes the earth.

    I agree with your disadvantages. Too much of a PITA to bother with. I had one this year. The fan barely had enough oomph to keep it up and then it got water in it and froze... snow gets on it, baah.

    I don't have any inflatables for my animated show...but I do for the "static" back yard (and for Halloween),I prefer inflatables making due to storage, plus for impact. I don't think a 12 ft Frankenstein blow mold would store too well.

    Disadvantages of inflatables = Ugly

    Disadvantages of blow molds = Ugly.

    This one is a tie.

    Can't please 'em all, huh? I actually think (some) inflatables look better than (some) blow molds.

    I have my frosty and grinch turn on every hour after noon, for 10 mins. Keeps them from being stuck on cold wet days.
    I too hate seeing it deflated on my lawn. I placed both of them behind my light arches. it helps to block the view of them when they are down

    That's a great idea! I will have to remember that.
