How scary is too scary for 202? With Halloween just around the corner, this new Aldi Halloween range is set to spooky shoppers.
While parents across the country will be eager to unleash their little monsters for long overdue fun, trick or treating looks like it’s off the cards. As a result, Aldi has adjusted its great value Halloween offering to encourage safe social distancing, with a stronger focus on horrifying decorations.
The range is for creating spooktacular doorsteps for passing thrill seekers, rather than physical trick or treating products. With products starting from £4.99 for the Halloween Light Up Doorbell, all the way up to the huge inflatable pumpkin.

For the second year running, the most petrifying products have been banished from the middle aisle – these will only be available online now. The rest of the range will arrive in stores from next Thursday 15th October.
Aldi Halloween range for 2020
Nothing says 'don't come near my house' quite like a gigantic three metre tall inflatable pumpkin. Yeah that should do it for deterring any would be trick or treaters this year.
New for this year are the brilliant inflatables – most popular as part of the supermarket's Christmas range. The huge inflatables offer maximum impact for front doors, with very little effort required. The easy to inflate three metre high arches come complete with LED lights to add even more wow factor, plus fixings, pegs and guy ropes. All you'll need is a pump to do all the hard work for you.
Available in the pumpkin design above and an eery mummy version. These are both online exclusives.
With Halloween celebrations get bigger and bigger with every year, decorating for the occasion is taken almost as seriously as Christmas nowadays. As a result there are many more exterior decorations on offer this year at Aldi.
Animated halloween decorations
There's nothing scarier than a clown. How about this Zombie? This along with a Talking Clown are both banned from the shelves this year. Ensuring little ones and those of a nervous disposition, aren’t scared in stores.
Aldi say, ‘This 1.4m high Hanging Animated Half Zombie is a spooky season essential! This half zombie comes to life through it's built-in sound sensor, turning it's head, moving it's arms and making the groaning sounds of the undead for a frighteningly good scare!’
We've purposefully not shared the picture of the clown – it's online here if you do want to see it!
Decorate the house for less with the supermarket's spooky low prices. We predict other items to look out for in store, based on the range last year...
Save yourself the effort of pumpkin carving with this handy colour changing design. Simply switch on the battery powered light inside to get the party started.
An instant win! Hang pretty pumpkin pom-poms to instantly jazz up any room. the tissue paper decorations are sold in a pack of five, meaning a little goes a long way. They sold out quick last year, we hope they make a return.
Wreaths are not just for Christmas, as this fabulous pumpkin tinsel design demonstrates. Hanging this on your door's an easy, understated way to add decoration.
OOOooo these scary light garlands instantly add a ghoulish touch to decor. We know there are lights in the new range, we just don't know if they will be these –from last year. Whatever spooky design they may be hang them at the window or drape them around a door to create the biggest impact.
