I don’t know about you, but as soon as the calendar strikes Oct. 1, my house is in full Halloween mode. I start prepping way before that though, pretty much in the summer.

That includes searching the internet for ideas and new, spooky merchandise I can buy once it hits stores. The one I’ve been waiting on the most? Target! Not only do they have tons of Halloween items like haunted house kits for $10, no-carve pumpkin decorating kits for just $10, Halloween-inspired succulents for $4 and Halloween pajamas for the entire family, but now they also have neon lights for just $5!

According to Hip2Save, the lights can only be found in the Bullseye’s Playground section in stores and may not be at every location. If you’re lucky enough to find them, it looks like you’ll be able to get things like a witch’s hat, a pumpkin, a bat or a piece of candy!

These things are super cute, as you can see from Instagram user @tkirslisboo’s recent post.

I went and looked at my own nearby Target store and was able to find some of the lights for $5 in Bullseye’s Playground. At my store, they only had the witch’s hat and the piece of candy but there were plenty of them left in a bin.

They are simple, battery-operated lights that turn on with a switch on the bottom of the stand. They don’t need to be plugged in to work, so you could set them up anywhere!

If you can’t find the lights at your local Target, there are plenty of other fun things to pick up from the Halloween section of Bullseye’s Playground. Take a look at some other items you might be able to find at your location:

3pc Light-Up Figurals

This three-piece set of light-up figures includes a ghost, a pumpkin that has “boo” carved into it and a stack of pumpkins. It is $9 for all three.


Kids Halloween Haunted House/Hotel and Wood Figures

This two-piece set of wooden houses and six wooden characters works for play or decoration. For $9, you’ll get one candy shop, one curiosity shop and one box of six Halloween characters, including Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster.


4-Pack Classic Halloween Foam Pumpkins 

This four-pack of foam pumpkins is $12, or just $3 per pumpkin. You’ll get one with polka dots, one with stripes, one that says “Trick or Treat” and a black one that says “October 31.”
