What Are Yard Inflatables?

Yard inflatables, or holiday inflatables, and decorations you can use to help celebrate holidays around your home. While these inflatables are typically used as outdoor decorations, you can also use them indoors for parties and other events.

Yard inflatables typically consist of two main components. An air blower to keep the decoration inflated, and the lightweight fabric that expands to make the shape of the decoration. The air blower plugs into a standard wall outlet.

What are the Benefits of a Yard Inflatable?

Yard inflatables have several big advantages over other types of decorations. Here’s a list of why you should buy yard inflatables to decorate with this year.

  • They’re the most effective type of decoration. Yard inflatables make a huge impact for such a low cost! The amount of attention they draw is unmatched.
  • Yard Inflatables spread happiness. There’s no such thing as a sad inflatable! Unlike most other decorations like Christmas laser lights, inflatable characters have a personality to them which gives people a true emotional response.
  • Inflatables are lightweight and simple to setup. Unlike Christmas lights, there’s no need to climb ladders or string lights through odd spaces. Unlike other lawn ornaments, inflatables are small and lightweight to move around when deflated.
  • Inflatables are the easiest decorations to store. Once deflated, yard inflatables take up very small spaces allowing them to be stored nearly anywhere. It’s typical to keep the box it comes in to use for storage later.
