Grinch Yard Art Storms the World

2014 is the year when Grinch yard art made a big splash.

Grinch Yard Art

We have a few shown on a Grinch merchandise page but the yard art is becoming so popular this Christmas season it is worth highlighting these fun items on the Grinch blog.

Keep in mind these seem to all be handmade pieces. Call the art. Due to their popularity we would not be surprised to see official Grinch yard art released next year.

In addition to the Grinch, you can pick up Cindy Lou Who and Max:

Cindy Lou Yard Art

Max Yard Art

This yard art could be made of metal, but is usually wood. Such as plywood. It is then painted or digitally printed. Either way, it is very colorful.

Again, since these are custom made items make you check the product description so you know exactly what you are buying. Each one may be slightly different.

Since they are handmade you can get the Grinch facing either direction:

The yard art is typically about four feet high for the Grinch. Shorter for Cindy Lou and Max.

Here is another version:

Grinch Lawn Statue

Here is how the seller generally described the piece:

The Grinch measures 48 inches tall and 21 inches wide. He is designed to be used with a string of lights to appear as though he is stealing them. Max measures 30 inches by 14 inches They are painted on wood that is a 1/2 inch thick and made for outdoor use. It has been primed with kilz paint and then painted with acrylic paints and then sealed with 3 coats of clear coat non yellowing sealant. He is only painted on one side, the back is painted black.

And another version:

Grinch and Max Lawn Art

It has this description:

Grinch Stands 40″ tall and is 20″ wide. Max is 27″ tall and 9″ wide, both are hand cut 1/2″ treated wood. They have both been treated with UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating to prevent fading and water damage.
Stakes and screws will be included for no additional cost.

As you can tell, the abilities of each artist differs.

These are a lot of fun! You will be the talk of the neighborhood.

Grinch Smile

Has there been a more famous smile since the Chesire Cat in Alice in Wonderland?

Here you can see the evolution of the smiling Grinch. From you laid-back, every day Grinch living in a cave, to the huge mischievous grin we know him for.

Even better, though, is showing off and wearing the Grinchy smile. Cool clothes featuring the Grinch’s smile can be found – but tedious to find. On this page we will try and make your shopping a lot easier.

grinch green smile shirt

This adult Grinch shirt is very similar. It has a darker green color and the mouth is slightly different. In this version the mouth is drawn by one solid line. In the prior picture, in the middle, you will see a bit more artwork. It all depends on your preference and what is in stock.

This version is sold in sizes small, medium, large, XL, XXL and XXXL.

smile mug

Around the house this Grinch smile mug is really nice. Made by Vandor, one of our favorite companies, you know this is a quality product. Made of ceramic it has a big easy to use handle.

smile travel mug

This travel mug we really like. It features the large Grinch face and smile. While everyone else a boring Starbucks or generic mug, this one is guaranteed to get a lot of attention. You may need more than one!

smile tote bag

This smiling tote bag is nice. Made from recycled materials it is water resistance and easy cleans with a wet cloth. The downside, though, is it isn’t big enough. It is a small tote bag measuring ten by four by twelve inches. Hopefully they will also make a bigger bag.

Pottery Barn Grinch Flannel Sheets

The Pottery Barn is not our favorite store as stocks can be low, but enough people like it.  Unfortunately, this year it was the primary place to get Grinch and Dr. Seuss flannel sheets.  Available for kids sized beds, queen size, whatever your size of bed.

These are flannel cotton sheets and Oeko-Tex certified.  That means they were environmentally friendly manufactured and are clear of harmful substances.  The set includes two pillowcases, a fitted sheet, and a flat sheet.

Except, of course, in Pottery Barn fashion they apparently only had a teaser number in stock and quickly ran out.  If you are looking for Grinch stuff at the Pottery Barn, especially bed covers, you are sheet out of luck.

That means you need to find a re-seller, where someone already has Pottery Barn sheets and is selling them.  These sheets will still be new.  The seller had no intention of buying them to use them, but instead was buying them to resell them.  After all, it was Pottery Barn so they knew there was a good chance there would not be enough in stock.
