Man Orders 35-Foot-Tall Grinch That's Bigger Than His House

Man Orders 35-Foot-Tall Grinch That's Bigger Than His House

A man who bought a large inflatable shaped like the Grinch to impress his daughter got a bit of a shock when it turned up and was even taller than his house.

Ray Liddell, 49, just wanted to give his seven-year-old daughter Jasmine a Christmas treat, but has now ended up with a 35-foot-tall Grinch sitting in his front yard.

Looking at that thing, it's certainly going to turn a few heads over the festive period.

It's taller than a giraffe, and certainly dwarfs the family home.

Liddell paid £500 ($670) for the inflatable, and he's certainly got his money's worth out of it. In fact, he got significantly more than he bargained for.

People have been flocking to their house in Hartlepool, County Durham, to catch an eyeful of the gigantic Grinch.

Ray said: "It's a total picture of positivity. People are coming from all over to have their photos taken.

"There was a queue on Sunday morning. I made sure everyone was socially distanced. I reckon we must have had over 5,000 people visit.

"It's been a real marvel so far.

"I only ordered it for my daughter as she loves Grinch. I was delighted with her reaction, let alone that of strangers."

Man Shocked After Finding Huge Argos Sign Outside His House

Ray, a businessman, is now asking families to donate some cash to charity after seeing his garden goliath, and has raised more than £10,000 ($13,400) for the cause at the time of writing.

His dad Frank died from Covid-19 in hospital back in May, so the proceeds are going to Alice House Hospice, who cared for him at the very end.

Ray explained: "He had a happy life because he had quite a simple life.

"I had always wanted to do something for the hospice but never thought it would be something like this. I thought it would be something simple like a raffle.

"I wanted this to be ambitious but I was staggered at how much and how quickly these strangers were donating.

"It really has snowballed.

"It has been good in some many ways. My kids love the decoration and also it is providing a great way to raise money for this great charity."

If you'd like to get behind the cause, you can head on over to the hospice's JustGiving page.
