Take your Blow Mold display to the Max! - Blow Mold Store

Take your Blow Mold display to the Max!

That’s right, this year the hunt has been on for the Max blow mold, the faithful sidekick of our favorite & begrudgingly lovable Grinch. Reports have been streaming in the past few weeks from numerous stores throughout these United States, either of shelves overflowing with Max’s 24” of blow mold cuteness or a substantial dearth of these collectable canines. I personally checked stores in multiple states across three time zones and struck out at nearly all of them, whether too early or too late depending on the store or region.  Either way, this season brings images of many excited collectors showing off their glorious new purchases, contrasted with countless, frustrated enthusiasts encountering empty shelves with sadness and dismay.

And if we’re talking about Max, how could we not mention the other amazing new Grinch character out this year, Cindy Lou Who.  Yes, the Whoville family makes it into the lineup this year with the adorable Cindy Lou, standing 36” tall, just like the larger Grinch Walmart made available in limited supply last year.  Like Max, she is similarly elusive this year and not necessarily in all the same stores that Max is in.  It’s like Walmart decided to make it twice as tough to find them.

Well don’t give up hope!  Reports are still coming in that some stores have yet to get their seasonal sections up or receive all their pallets for this season.  Some stores also still have some on their shelves if internet sourced pictures are to be believed.  Of course, if you can’t find one locally and don’t have friends who are willing to look for you, then you could always win Max and Cindy Lou Who in the annual Blow Mold Store Christmas giveaway.  That’s right, we did source a set of these two new and adorable blow molds just for this giveaway, and will be holding a contest in November where one winner will receive both the Max and Cindy Lou Who blow molds.  Details forthcoming in early November so stay tuned!

Of course, if you don’t end up the winner in our contest or don’t want to wait, it is also possible to check the secondary market like Facebook marketplace, eBay, or Mercari; however please be careful in how you proceed there.

Buyer Beware:  Scammers are everywhere and preying on desperate people who fear missing out on the latest “must-have” items, and these year’s blow molds are no different.  Please don’t fall for “give us your phone number” or “pay us on Cash App or Zelle” scams where you send $100 and never see the item.  Use only reputable platforms and don’t overpay.

So please be cautious when searching online and use your best judgment before paying 2-4x for a new piece that still may be coming to a store near you, or that you could have a chance to win in our November contest. 

The folks over at Gemmy were hitting all the right buttons this year with Walmart and the one-two punch of adorable cuteness: Cindy Lou Who & Max the Dog. If you already have your 36” Grinch from last year (limited availability again this year in some stores) then you could be on your way to the trifecta of Christmas Grinch blow mold love this holiday season.
