If you need a little help with the air quality in your home, Aldi sells various small appliances throughout the year to help you. Whether you’re looking for an air conditioner, and air purifier or a dehumidifier, or a humidifier, you only need to wait a few months to spot appliances like these at your favorite discount grocer.
As we head into the winter months, a common challenge many households deal with is dry air, which can irritate your eyes, nose, throat, and skin. It can worsen asthma symptoms or dry skin symptoms. The solution is to use a humidifier. Some people install whole-house humidifiers that are integrated into your plumbing and the blower system in your furnace. Other people opt to simply purchase small humidifiers that can be plugged into an electrical outlet and used in a single room or moved around to different rooms as needed.
Aldi has sold a wide range of portable, single-room humidifiers over the years, including a cool mist humidifier, an LED ultrasonic humidifier, and a portable cool mist humidifier that uses a standard plastic water bottle. Sometimes Aldi sells humidifiers with a whimsical touch that are perfect for using in a nursery or child’s bedroom. For instance, in the fall of 2020, Aldi sold humidifiers that looked like foxes or unicorns.
This year, in 2021, Aldi is once again selling humidifiers that appeal to the younger crowd, or to the young at heart. This year’s humidifiers look like a duck or a frog.
What We Know:
The Easy Home Duck or Frog Cool Mist Humidifier cost $29.99 at the time of publication. That’s on the lower end of prices for humidifiers, and it’s cheaper than any other children’s humidifiers I spotted on the market. If you want a humidifier that looks like an animal, you may not find them any cheaper than the Aldi Easy Home ones.
These are fun-looking little gadgets. The duck is yellow with a bright orange bill and feet, while the green frog has big eyes that stick up off the top of the humidifier. They’re both adorable, but I’m partial to the frog myself.
At $29.99, the duck and frog humidifiers cost the same as 2020’s fox and unicorn humidifiers at Aldi.
Here’s more info on the 2021 humidifiers from Aldi:
