Normally, buying a full size coffin to use as a Halloween decoration or prop can be a very expensive proposition, but the classic Toe Pincher style coffin from the Halloween Connection changes that.

Halloween Coffin

When we spoke with Haunted Enterprises (halloweenconnection.com), the manufacturer of the coffin, they told us that they wanted to design a Halloween coffin with three specific goals in mind. First, that it looked like an authentic, old world "Toe Pincher" coffin. Second, that it was affordable to buy and lastly that it could be shipped UPS instead of freight, saving the buyer hundreds of dollars in shipping costs. After receiving a coffin from them, we have to agree that they have achieved all three of their goals.

Measuring almost six feet in length and priced at under three-hundred dollars (not including shipping), these hand-made coffins make  a great looking Halloween prop. The sides and lid are made from pine boards and have been distressed to give it an old, weathered look. The lid is attached with a full length piano hinge for added strength. The back of the coffin is made from heavy weight fiber-board to keep the overall weight down. You can even buy a fabric lined version for an additional fee.

This prop was designed to hold a full size skeleton or other Halloween prop. While it is not quite wide enough for most adults to fit in, a slender adult or child under five-foot-eight in height could fit inside. Since the back is made from fiber-board, make sure that the coffin is laying on a flat, solid surface so you won't damage the back, or if you will have the coffin standing up, that it is against a wall for stability. While it is built fairly sturdy, it was not designed to withstand a lot of force applied to the inside walls, so don't thrash around inside of it.

As for shipping, the coffin is shipped via UPS from the manufacturer, in one box and fully assembled! Below are the measurements of this great Halloween coffin:
