Huntington Home 5′ Posable Skeleton Headed to Aldi in Time for Halloween

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

Halloween is around the corner. In my neighborhood, people are already pulling out all the stops when it comes to decorating their yards. I’ve spotted inflatables such as bats and cats, along with Styrofoam tombstones, fake spider webs, and larger-than-life skeletons among all the festive and creepy decorations.

While some people might head to their local big box stores or a popup Spirit Halloween store to fulfill all their Halloween decorating desires, one underrated store for Halloween supplies is Aldi. The discount grocer rotates a variety of spooky décor into its middle aisle this time of year. You might find oversized spider webs for your lawn, decorative bats or witch’s hats, string lights, metal jack-o-lanterns, novelty pillows, pumpkin-shaped candles, pumpkin-shaped pillows, and more.

This year, one decoration in particular caught my eye. Aldi is selling a life-sized five-foot poseable skeleton. This is perfect to sit on your front porch or anywhere you want to add some spooky ambiance. You can set it out as is, or dress it in some clothing or a hat or pose it with other props.

What We Know:

Huntington Home 5' Posable Skeleton

The Huntington Home 5′ Posable Skeleton (Product Code: 709788) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back next year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products not currently in stock at your local store.

This is scheduled to arrive in Aldi stores on either September 24th or September 27th of 2023, depending on whether your local store sets out new specials on Sundays or Wednesdays.

The Huntington Home 5′ Posable Skeleton cost $29.99 at the time of publication. You won’t have an easy time finding a cheaper skeleton of this size on Amazon.

Here’s more information, according to Aldi:

  • Stands 5 feet tall
  • Joints hold a lifelike position
  • Comes with loop on top of skull for hanging display
  • Simple assembly required
  • For indoor or covered outdoor use

This is sold under the Huntington Home brand, which is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for home goods it sells.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t purchased this skeleton, so we don’t know how easily it assembles, how easy it is to pose, or how durable it is. We write open threads so readers can discuss Aldi products.

  1. Don’t waste your money on this skeleton! We purchased two for our nursing home, and you have to assemble it. Which is easy to do, but the skeleton attaches at the spine base by a tiny hook and three tiny screws. Both of our skeletons broke in half once they were put together. We did as instructions say, and we tried to just pick him up and move him and the spine broke in half on both of them at the part that was screwed together. In my review I feel it is poorly designed because the top part is heavier than the bottom part and it just can’t withstand the weight once put together. I just want to save someone else the trouble before they purchase this one. I feel the spine should already be assembled by the manufacturer because it is the weakest spot on the whole skeleton. Also the poseable parts are not easy to move either, they are very hard to move at the joints. I hope this review helps. It is a good looking skeleton but its poorly designed.

    • Thank you for the detailed information. Did you take yours back to Aldi or keep them?

      • We kept it and just secured the spine with duct tape 🙁 to make it work, we couldn’t find another one anywhere in stock.

      • yes thank you…. your correct pulled mine out of box and i clipped off the tie and the hip broke right off. I was thinking they needed cardboard padding or something inside those boxes because if they dropped or just flip them the skeleton get the hit.

    • I bought two skeletons from Aldi’s. I was excited to put them together as well. Both of mine broke in half minutes after putting them together :-(. Really bad design! Pretty bummed out about them.

    Same complaint! Attached at the spine with 1 (one) quarter inch screw!! Ridiculous !!

  3. We ended up keeping him and we just used duct tape on his spine. Then the next week his arm fell off and we zip tied it together. Then a week after that his pelvis broke away from the spine as well, I think he might be done for now. LOL I work at a nursing home and it’s been the topic for sometime, what’s going to happen next? LOL
