    Bunnings also had them but they were bigger say 1.8?? and about $120 ?? I looked t them but the amount of work needed to retrofit was more than making them from scratch lol

    I got mine from Bunnings last year, but they are a fixed colour. We chose Blue,
    I held off for the cheaper price just before Christmas, but they were popular and there wasn't any left for the after Christmas bargains.
    They look similar to the K-Mart ones. I think the Target one looks better, but it's not as tall as the Bunnings one we purchased.

    Oh well, you photo is deceiving. It is the same height as the Bunnings tree.

    Yuup this was last weekend and they seemed to have all stock out on the floor ! Munno para west store in adelaide . My personal feelings is bunnings is the best for value and quality with their Christmas lights . I used too prefer big w and kmart but they have become real average here over last few years not that we buy much static stuff now but Still always looking !

    Walked into Bunnings Maroochydore today and low and behold Chrissy lights.
    I was totally disappointed with the range.
    Twig trees - same as last year.
    Wanted some small count "bud" solar lights - nup only 400, 800 and 2000
    The only small count had stars attached to them.
    Same old static Deer with lights some solar candy canes and two wire rope lights.
    90% of what was on display was "Bright White"
    hardly any colour. :-(
