And this year they’re treating customers to an invisibility cloak, completely free of charge! Great news for those thinking about dressing up as The Invisible man, Violet from The Incredibles or Harry Potter.
Tim Bettley, Poundland’s trading director said: “We intended to trial this item last year, but couldn’t find it in the distribution centre but now we’ve found it, we think our customers will see the value, if not the cloak.”
Even if you’re not one to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve, we propose that you make the most of this offer anyway – especially if your name is Coleen Rooney.
Who hasn’t wished they were invisible at some point in their lives?
Released at 10am this morning, the invisibility cloak has already been spotted in Poundlands located in London, Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds and Birmingham. They can be temporarily found in a range of sizes down the Halloween aisles of the stores, kindly hung on complimentary hangers so that you may locate them.
The Invisibility Cloak is part of Poundland’s biggest ever Halloween range and features over 270 different products which are all available now and will be sold from £1.
The range includes Halloween essentials like the Skull Tealight Holder, Trick or Treat Loot Bags (and the loot to go in them), Pumpkin Candy Buckets and Halloween Rubber Ducks.
Poundland has also introduced See, Speak, Hear No Evil Skulls, Halloween signs and a full range of make-up to create spooky looks from ghosts to devils. The range also includes a wand and some glasses reminiscent of the nation’s favourite, Harry Potter.
Poundland are definitely fans of the novelty item. Back in Feb they started selling engagement rings for Valentine’s Day.
The rings came nestled in a heart shaped velvet box, and the packaging reads, “Because we promise they’ll want to choose their own”.
Although, I should have mentioned something about the cloaks.
Reportedly, they aren’t very warm. Therefore, we do recommend that you wear some clothes underneath.

Not just your average Joe, Lord Joseph William Furness – lorded by a mate for his birthday (a decision they now live to regret) – struggles to understand a world in which everyone isn’t as blunt, unemotional and sarcastic as him. His mother calls him pretentious because of his materialistic nature; whilst his father tells him that he can’t live in his own ‘dream world’ forever, but he seems to be doing pretty well so far. He plans to write for The Hook until he sees his name in shining lights – a future promised to him by his year 4 primary school teacher.
