    If I wasn’t on social security disability and had a regular full time job with the salary I used to earn, YES YES YES.

    Christ is about Santa and Buddy the Elf!

  2. Carrie

    That’s a little ridiculous for me. I would wait for it to go on sale. I guess if your a true die hard fan. For me nope.

  3. IB

    Reviews on these are pretty bad. We looked at Buddy one last year.

  4. beckybell

    We bought it!! I believe we paid maybe $50-$55 for ours on sale last holiday season. It’s a big hit in our cul-de sac!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for telling us about it, beckybell! I want one!

  5. MW

    I would seriously consider it! Elf is one of the frequently quoted movies in our home!😂

  6. IB

    Think Target has buddy for $50

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We checked and right now Target is out of stock.

  7. Flgrl017

    I wouldn’t want it if it were free 😂.

    • nita

      Lol

    • Cristine

      Lol

    • GaGa

      Me too

  8. Joanie

    We bought Clark Griswold last year on clearance and everyone loved it. This is going on the list this year, hoping for a sale!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That one looks like a lot of fun, Joanie!

  9. Stephanie

    Last year Lowe’s had Buddy for $50 regular price and they sold like hot cakes (I work at Lowe’s 😂).
    My favorite has been the giant Billy Bass that sings “I Will Survive” that I managed to get for $20 a few years ago. He’s been a huge hit at my last house and my current. I do turn the sound off on him though 😂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      LOL! I remember that one too! Great score, Stephanie!

  10. Joni

    I love it! But no, I can’t justify the cost. My kids would love it too!

  11. Cristine

    Nope.

  12. MombieZombie

    Nope, not a fan of inflatables.

    Give me some old school plastic blow mold Santas and Reindeer cuz they are AWESOME!!!
    Seriously l need 13 Santa blow molds!

  13. Leslie

    If u really want the ELF, Wayfair has Elf Excited Yard Standee, made of weather resistant corrugated plastic and come with yard stakes so that they are free standing, $39.99.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Leslie!

  14. Justine

    I can’t afford $70, but I got a clearance-priced ELF holiday plaque from Michael’s last year, so that’s a decent substitute for now! But honestly, I’d be worried someone would steal the inflatable from my yard. We live in a relatively safe neighborhood, but there are some kids who like to play pranks, and I don’t think they could resist stealing Buddy the Elf!

  15. Cindy

    Sure would! Love that movie!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I love it too! It is a “must watch” each year!

  16. Sarah

    No.

  17. Denise

    Love the movie but answer to your question would be a big NO😂

  18. Aleisha

    A neighbor has one and while on walks around the block, it would bob out from behind the telephone pole and scare me! Everytime!😂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I can’t help it, but that made me laugh so hard! I would probably pee my pants if it bobbed out at me, Aleisha!

  19. Danette

    $70 can’t any of you think of those less fortunate and the food and/or gifts that could be bought? What a waste of money.

    We prefer a nativity scene.
