Chelsea Cross joins host Leisha Grebinski in browsing the different types of haunted houses and other Halloween attractions in and around the city this week.

Home Depot store manager Trina Glass says that although Skelly is quite tall with quirky eyes, most people love her.

« Overall, we don’t see a lot of creepy, scary responses, » Glass said. « Even the kids will look a little fearful at first, but then they’ll love it.

« We had a little girl the other day at the cash register reminding her mom that they needed to go back to Skelly before they left the store. »

Glass said the skeleton scale was part of the appeal.

« You can see it from so far away and it’s just one of those things that catches you by the way. I think it looks very real too, » she said.

A few other massive decorations have joined Skelly due to its success.

« There’s a 12-foot pumpkin king and a 12-foot flying witch, » Lipski said.

And even with a price tag of up to $400, Glass said they’re flying off the shelves.
