The Lifesize Pennywise is a 2019 Halloween lifesize. It is the 2017 version of Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King's IT. Pennywise wears his signature gray and red 2017 clothes including a white neck ruffle and red pom poms on his body. He also holds a red balloon in his right hand and features a realistic face with plastic hair. When activated, Pennywise's head moves side to side, his eyes light up and he moves his left arm up and down while he speaks phrases from the 2017 IT movie.
