Haunted Mansion merchandise notoriously flies off the shelves at most retailers, and the parks are no exception to that. Hallmark is struggling to keep their latest Haunted Mansion color-changing coffee mug in stock, as it’s been sold out since its release after seeing viral social media success.

Haunted Mansion Crocs become the talk of the town whenever Guests catch them back in stock, and fans swooned over the new Haunted Mansion Bride Ear Headband.

It appears, however, that the most recent line of merchandise is not sitting well with fans, leaving them feeling disappointed and confused. A couple of TikTokers shared video documentation of the “awful” new items available for purchase.

In this first video, TikToker @themeparkmom shared multiple examples of “terrible” options that she claims utilize repeated, dated color blocking techniques. She also shared that one of the shirts could have easily been made at home with her vinyl cutter.

Of the many new Haunted Mansion merchandise options, @themeparkmom only liked two — a portrait printed pillow, and a “kiss the bride” purse. “Honestly, overall not impressed,” @themeparkmom said.

The second vlogger had similar feedback, claiming that the new collection contained “several questionable items.” TikToker @mermaidfantasea shared her reaction in part 12 of her “bad merch” video series.

Coincidentally, both reaction videos opened with the same clothing article, The Haunted Mansion Woven Shirt for Adults, seen below.

“There is so much to unpack here,” @mermaidfantasea said in the clip. “Gray wallpaper, flannel, neon, did they get confused and think they were designing this for Two-Face from Batman?”

She went on to say that the fact that the back of the shirt did not mirror the front only made it go from bad to worse.

“This was way worse than I was expecting,” user Andrea Salin commented. Other Guests said the “cringe” worthy new collection saves them by keeping money in their pockets.
