Bigfoot has several names. In the southern states, this large, hairy bipedal creature is called the Skunk Ape. In Ohio, believers in Bigfoot claim that the "grassman" roams the oak woodlands of the Buckeye State. In the wild coniferous forests of the west, it goes by the name of Sasquatch and in Asian mountains, a similar furry giant is known as the Yeti. An enigma for sure and one that deserved to be immortalized as one of the more fantastic animal garden statues.
The following are two reasons why it's worth it to buy a garden sculpture of Bigfoot:
Gentle Giant: Despite Bigfoot's massive size and obvious strength, the scarcity of sightings indicate that it might be the most shy creature in the woods. As opposed to being threatening, an animal yard statue of Bigfoot fills the garden with mystery and enchantment.
It's unique: While neighbors can claim that their backyard is inhabited by statues of pink flamingoes and garden gnomes, get a Bigfoot sculpture and you can show that your garden hosts one of the most unique and detailed sculptures in town.
Yet another reason for buying a Bigfoot Sculpture today is because you get a 20% discount as part of our Black Friday Weekend sale. This sale ends today, November 25th!

Shopping online can make it easy to find garden statuary and other objets d'art for great low prices. Although you have to pay for shipping and can't get your purchase two seconds after buying it, the time saved and convenience of shopping from the comfort of the home or office makes up for those small disadvantages. Even when large purchases result in sizeable shipping costs, they are still outweighed by the advantages of online shopping. Nevertheless, it's always better to pay less so it's worth it to take advantage of times when discounts are offered on shipping, especially for large items like beautiful Greek garden statues.
At Design Toscano, one of those rare times happens to be in effect from today until Thursday, November 15th. All you need to do to get free standard shipping from now until November 15th is order anything from our site. Order something small and exquisite like a Versailles telephone from our Basil Street Gallery or large statuary like Bigfoot the Garden Yeti and it gets shipped for free* right to your front door. It doesn't matter what you order, nor how big or small your purchase may be. Just buy between now and Thursday, November 15th and standard shipping is free!

Statues for the backyard don't just have to be placed on the ground or even on a plinth. Some, like the Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue seem to come right out of the ground, while items like the Bigfoot Statue seem to lope through the yard and statues such as the Black Panther stalk the flowerbeds. Others find their home in the trees and make for a naturally beautiful addition to outdoor holiday decor.
Animal garden statues like Simone, the Squirrel Hanging Sculpture are so realistic that you can expect the live, bushy-tailed, inquisitive variety to come and scold it on more than a few occasions. Birds may keep their distance and neighbors will wonder why you have a pet squirrel until you put a little Santa Claus hat on its head.
Yonva, the Climbing Bear Sculpture is another animal statue meant for the trees. Modeled after a real bear cub, Yonva plays the role perfectly with its adorable face and highly detailed, furry appearance. Black Bears like Yonva are naturally good climbers and they often sleep in nests high up in a tree. Larger and bulkier Brown Bears usually stick to the ground because they don't climb trees nearly as well. This is demonstrated by the oh so cute Out on a Limb Hanging Brown Bear Statue!

Whether just getting started with a garden or maintaining one for several years, picking out the right decor can be a challenge. Do you go with greenmen sculptures for the trees or opt for statues that hang from the limbs? Do you limit your garden sculptures to topiary or go for a classic display of Greek-themed statues? Is decor in the backyard going to follow a certain theme or blend Asian sculptures with African animals? No matter how you decide to decorate the garden, the huge assortment of classic and unique decor at Design Toscano gives you a cornucopia of garden statuary options.
If the garden lacks any decor whatsoever, decide on a theme (or not) first and foremost. If going for an Asian-themed garden, Pagoda Lantern sculptures are a good choice. Their simple design and easy-going appearance make them a versatile and ideal addition to any type of flowerbeds.
Speaking of flowers, garden fairies also work well with just about any type of garden on account of their small size and naturally enchanting appearance. The detailed beauty of Fiona the Flower Fairy makes this one of our more popular fairy sculptures.
If you already have an established, well decorated garden, you might want to consider something unique like a life size tiger or Bigfoot.
Save on the best decor for both the backyard and the interior of home and office at Design Toscano.

Who says that all things spooky need to come crawling out of the grave? While the idea of zombies creeping up and out of the dark earth isn't exactly for the faint of heart, those undead creeps don't have a monopoly on scare tactics! Beings from other planets can vie with zombies and even the most hideous of gargoyle figurines when it comes to terrifying us. Although at least a few aliens shown on the silver screen have been downright adorable, many more are the stuff of nightmares.
In terms of terror and originality, an alien invasion is an excellent idea for a Halloween decorating theme. But where on Earth can you find decor that truly looks as if it comes from beyond the Kuiper Belt? Well, where else but Design Toscano? Aliens sculptures fit right in with realistic Bigfoot statues and creeping zombies, so of course we carry them!
Start the alien decorating with a sculpture of a flying saucer that just happened to make a crash landing in your garden. Put this very eerie statue in the backyard and you can rename your place "Roswell Two" or "The Real Area 151". When guests ask where the pilot is, direct them to the alien coming out of your wall!

Even if you have never seen what greenman decor looks like, it's easy to surmise that it might be spooky. Although it sounds like another name for Martian-themed decor, greenman items are very much connected to Earth. These nature-themed decorations literally give faces to trees and the result is magical, mysterious, and somewhat frightening. Adding personality to trees with woody faces and piercing eyes, these sculptures will provide a unique, naturally spooky touch to the yard.
Most trees are innocent and docile but when the big craggy oak in the backyard decides to come awake and show its true face, trick-or-treaters might skip your house during their quest for candy. The Spirit of Nottingham Woods greenman can be especially frightening on dark, October nights. With perceptive, woody eyes, he peers out at all passersby and dares Halloween party guests to approach his twiggy abode.
While the Nottingham Greenman can look frightening or intriguing depending on the lighting, there's no doubting the evil designs of the Poison Oak Greenman Tree Sculpture. This leering sculpture literally shows his teeth in a malicious grin that taunts guests to "Come closer for a better look!".
Save 20% on these and other Halloween decor from now until September 24th!
Don't forget to participate in our Pin-spiration contest by creating your own Halloween pinboard with scary garden statuary and the best in gargoyle figurines. The winner gets $200 off a Bigfoot statue or anything else at Design Toscano.

With October 31st a little more than a month away, it's time to make a decision about Halloween decor. If you decide to focus on the undead, do you go with vampires or zombies? Do you turn the backyard into the horrifying laboratory of a mad scientist or make it into giant spider central? Of course you can always mix and match these and other themes but you should know if appropriate decor is available before settling on any particular decorating theme.
We carry a number of excellent detailed decorations to compliment a wide variety of Halloween decorating themes. If you decide to go with zombies, our terrifying Zombie of Montclaire Moors and Outbreak of the Undead Zombie Statue will send shivers down the spines of the bravest of guests. Both of these realistic items look as if they are clawing their way out of the ground!
Several of our animal garden statues will also put the fright into trick-or-treaters and and other unwary visitors. Put out the incredibly realistic Grand Scale Crocodile Statue, though, and they might not make it to your front door.
Find these, the best Bigfoot garden statue, and other fantastic Halloween Halloween decor at Design Toscano. Save 20% on decor until September 24th!

The best Halloween displays in town aren't necessarily the ones with scary sounds piped into a front yard that has been transformed into a spooky cemetery. While those do look great, they have been done before and who knows how many houses will follow that theme in 2012. If your place is going to stand out from the rest of the Halloween decorating crowd, you need to let your creative juices lead you to places where decorating ideas have no boundaries. Let your mind wander outside the box and you will come up with some amazing decorating themes.
For example, while zombies crawl out of your flower garden, how about putting up a Bigfoot crossing sign, or something like, "Beware of the Great North American Ape". Of course you should also combine those curious warnings with Bigfoot decor and that's just one of the ways we can help. You can start out by putting Bigfoot, the Bashful Yeti Tree Sculpture behind a tree in the yard. Party guests and trick-or-treaters will do a double-take when they spot this highly detailed, realistic Bigfoot sculpture peering at them from the shadows! Follow that up with the huge, realistic Life-sized Yeti Sculpture in the garden and they might run for the door!

Backyards look better when they play host to quality sculptures. Just one beautiful stone garden angel can turn the plainest backyard into a place of enchanting peace. Animal statues can bring the dramatic wild side of nature to gardens in the middle of the city and sculptures are an essential part of every decorating theme. Many of our customers already realize this and is why they purchase statuary to add to their garden collection along with giving sculptures to friends and family. If you have ordered decor and sculptures from us in the past, you also know that we like to hold sales and offer our unique items at discounted prices.

Sasquatch or Bigfoot is a fantastic legend. Unlike tiny fairies and monsters that can hide out in deep, dark lakes, Bigfoot is a huge, towering creature that wanders through the wild woodlands of North America. It leaves massive footprints wherever it walks, has been glimpsed by hundreds of people on the darkest of nights, and even reveals itself with howls that send shivers up the spines of even the most stalwart of woodsmen. The absence of definitive proof in the face of numerous sightings and evidence makes this creature a true enigma. In fact, the legend of Bigfoot is so enduring that believers have even formed Bigfoot study and research groups.
Armed with the latest in infrared technology and night vision goggles, they head out into the night in the wildest of places to howl like Bigfoot and search for an encounter. Some say they get a response while others come up with nothing. Whether Sasquatch roams the wilds of America or not, a much easier way to find it is by ordering a Big Foot Garden Statue. Although we won't deny or state that we got a Sasquatch to pose for the sculpture, we will say that it's the most realistic Bigfoot animal yard statue available.

North America has plenty of legends but the one that has captivated Americans and Canadians the most is that of Bigfoot. Also known as Sasquatch and the much less mysterious "skunk ape", Bigfoot is an enigma. The huge, hairy creatures are mentioned in many Native American legends and thousands of people have reported sightings of the bipedal giant from the swamps of Florida to the lush forests of southern Alaska. Although Sasquatch has yet to receive scientific documentation and be fully recognized as an actual animal, hundreds of the stories are compelling and at least one bit of filmed footage is believed to be the real deal by more than one expert.
However, given that Bigfoot is still officially considered to be a creature that only exists in legend and in the minds of people who also believe in the existence of garden fairies, more than one person has wondered how we can claim that our sculptures of Bigfoot are realistic. Well, if you believe in the existence of Bigfoot, you could say that our Sasquatch statues are realistic because they are based on sightings of the creature. If you think that the North American Yeti is just a figment of wild imaginations, you could still say that our animal yard statue of the creature is realistic because we provide a detailed depiction of what it is supposed to look like. Whether it exists or not, our statues of Bigfoot certainly help bring it to life!

It's August first and sales on school supplies remind us that summer is heading into the home stretch. Fall might be on the way but that doesn't mean that we have to spend all of our time indoors. On the contrary, some of the best summer garden parties happen as August turns into September. The sultry evenings of August and star-filled September night skies actually make it tough to stay indoors and especially so when you have a beautiful backyard decorated with quality sculptures for outside.
However, no matter how many pieces you might own, there's always room for another detailed animal yard statue or sculpture that take your breath away with their beauty. Whether looking for a another garden statue to liven up the backyard, or the first statue for your yard, today is the day to order. Sure, you could wait until tomorrow but then you wouldn't enjoy a further 20% off the regular price. For today only, everything at Design Toscano gets a 20% discount! The bigger the object you buy, the more you save, so if you ever thought about getting one of our classic Bigfoot sculptures or a life-sized, detailed Velociraptor, you might as well order it today and get an equally hefty 20% discount.
Get 20% off anything on the Design Toscano site when ordering it today, August first!

The Internet has made shopping such an easy affair. All you need to do is go online, search for that special item, buy it with a credit card, and then go pick it up when it gets delivered to your home. Of course it helps if you know the websites that have the highest quality items for the lowest prices. The Design Toscano site is one such place and it's the only way to purchase exclusive Design Toscano items like the Bigfoot Statue. Nevertheless, there are two days of the year when you can buy those same beautiful items right at the Design Toscano warehouse. Those dates are July 14th and July 15th, 2012 and they hold the promise of huge savings on everything from detailed Egyptian decorations to classic statues for the garden.
When you head to the warehouse on that second weekend in July, the following are a couple of recommendations on what to bring to the event:
A big vehicle: You wouldn't want to show up and go home empty-handed because you couldn't fit a life-sized statue of the Yeti on your bike. Come prepared with a large vehicle to haul away your treasures!
Water: Hey, it's summertime and it's hot out so be prepared to stay hydrated while searching through detailed furniture and other breathtaking objets d'art.
Mark July 14th and July 15th on your calendar for the warehouse sale. It's located at 1400 Morse Avenue, Elk Grove Village, Illinois 60007.

He's huge, he's hairy, and he's a lot more shy than anyone ever imagined. Even though Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch or the Great North American Ape) is big and strong enough to pulverize your prize bronze garden sculptures, the creature would never dream of carrying out such a senseless act of violence. No, despite its strength, Bigfoot keeps to itself and rarely enters into anyone's yard.
The gentle beast prefers to venture outside in the dark of the night and stays hidden from prying eyes during the day. Although people who have a run-in with Sasquatch are typically terrified, since Bigfoot runs away from anyone it encounters, it's obvious that they have nothing to fear. Native American tribes felt the same way about the monstrous ape and just stayed away from the deep canyons and other wild corners of America haunted by this legendary creature.
Despite all of the Bigfoot sightings, pre-Columbian legends, and controversial footage of the creature filmed in the wilds of northern California, Sasquatch is still awaiting acceptance by the scientific community. Whether you believe that Bigfoot is real or not, you can help keep the legend alive with the most detailed, realistic Bigfoot sculptures in existence. Who knows, maybe one day you will see two Sasquatch "statues" in the backyard and realize that the legend is real because you only bought one!
