Inflatable Taxidermy for Your Home -- Or Should I Say for Your Dorm
Yes, friends and neighbors! There actually is blow-up taxidermy you may hang on your walls.
I saw it in someone's home, and I just had to -- HAD TO! -- write about it. There it was -- a plastic, blown up moose head. I know there are no plastic "mooseses" -- I'm a thinker! -- so I realized this was a brilliant, man-made inflatable piece of taxidermy -- let's call it "plastidermy". Dang! I looked it up. Plastidermy applies to acrylic faux taxidermy pieces.
Fine! Let's call it "pneumatidermy". There! I coined a word. My life is complete -- completely wasted. But let us not digress.
We have much to discuss about pneumatidermy!
What Is Inflatable Taxidermy?
This sort of "taxidermy" -- as we are using the term a little loosely here -- consists of vinyl, shaped to "look like" (that term is used loosely, too!) the head of a given wild game animal.
They are realistic like pressed pork shoulder meat is healthy!

Why Does Inflatable Taxidermy Exist?
Realistic or not, blow-up tiger heads, moose heads, and the like, are funny. I did a double take the first time I saw one -- and gave a h00t!
These are novelty products. You might see one in a dorm room, a man cave, or a hunting lodge -- one where the occupants have a sense of humor about hunting, of course.
Who Invented Inflatable Taxidermy?
The answer to this question is a very simple one. Ready? I don't know.
(And I could not find out online.)
That said, I am very hopeful someone will happen by here -- as they quest about the Interwebbies -- and edify me as to the name of the person who graced the world with the invention of blow-up bear heads and the like.
I will gladly then, update this section of this here wizzle on taxidermy of the inflatable kind.
It would also be interesting to know the circumstances that led to the development of blow-up taxidermy.
Perhaps, it is quite the riveting story. (Probably not -- but I would love to be wrong.)
The Massive Moose Head
It is "massive" as in that is the impression it will leave in your mind. I saw an inflatable moose head not too long ago and thought, "Why didn't I think of that!"
The Blow-up Bear Head
Blow up your party atmosphere with this bear head with a breath of fresh air inside (once you blow it up!). Inflatable animal heads might be silly, but that doesn't mean they're not also cool. To me, this sort of thing just cries out college comedy!
The Tremendous, Stupendous Tiger Head
Clearly, I have gone too far with my description of this still yet interesting product. You may never bag an actual tiger, but you can nab this sort-of next-best-thing for a pittance!
The Scary Larry -- Stay Wary! -- Shark Head
Shark attack! Of pneumatic proportions! Who says you can't catch a shark from land! (Probably nobody.) If you "land" this baby, can't nobody call you a landlubber, laddie! (Actually, they probably still could, and totally would.)
Buy 'em All and Start a Petting Zoo!
No -- on second thought -- that wouldn't work. It'd be the deadest petting zoo ever!
You would need actual dead -- probably real, taxidermy-stuffed -- animals to have a deader petting zoo than that, so never mind.
I want this page to be the "end all" when it comes to inflated fake animal heads. (Nobody ever wrote that sentence before -- that is for certain!) Please let me know what you think in the comments section.
