He's sweet!

I don't have any because I worry about whether it will blow over/away in a good storm and if you have to keep a pump on and lights (running electricity).

No inflatables here. We personally do not like them. No flimsy flat holographic pictures either. I think it's just a matter of personal taste and decorating style though.

We don't have any b/c I am too cheap to spend the money on them, but my kids LOVE to see them at other homes when we drive around!

My mom bought me a couple after Christmas two years ago for really cheap!  She is the manager of the store so she knew when they got marked down.  I have a snow globe one and a penguin.  My kids love them!  I set them on a timer and they inflate at dark.  I will take a pic. of them and post it!

We used to have MANY of them for Christmas. We were the Griswalds of inflatables.  We have greatly reduced our decorating.  We had a 20 foot arch, a 15' Santa, 3 snowmen on a sled, Thomas the train, a Chicago Bears football player, Scooby Doo, Snowman similar to yours,....I think that's it.  Not sure what we have left at this point.  What's silly is we decorated crazy BEFORE kids.  Now that we have kids who would think it's fun, we just don't have the energy to do it! LOL

Your snowman is really cute !! I never saw any turkeys around here yet....although dh saw a family of real turkeys walking down the street this morning. hahaha  !! 

 The only thing I don't like about the inflatables , is when some people have a ton of them in their yard. It's just too much and looks like The Attack of the Inflatables !  LOL !
