People were appalled and others were thrilled when Bunnings announced they had a $129 inflatable Axe Throwing Santa available for Christmas decorations.

The item had left some shoppers confused, saying it was “peculiar” on Facebook.

“Hahahaha love it,” added another.

The garden addition was 1.8m and came with one reindeer pinned to a rotating bullseye along with 18 LED lights that illuminate your garden.
