Yes, we know, for plenty of kids, Halloween is more about the treats than the tricks. And that means: GET CANDY. But it need not be all a dental disaster; after all, candy isn’t the only treat delighting little ghouls and goblins this Halloween. These creepy (but cute) new toys and gifts are perfect for Halloween, October birthdays, or you know, any kid who just loves a spooky-scary vibe. And if the “Switch Witch” visits your house to trade sweets for toys, “the witch” could probably brush up on the latest Halloween loot options out there. (Read: The Switch Witch is you, when you creep out Halloween night after your kids are asleep to swap their candy haul for a sugar-free toy or token. Duh.)
Just for you — and just for fun — we found a cute keepsake trick-or-treat bag, nesting black cats, a rad (haunted) Lego train set, some soft and spooky plushes, and a Villainous board game, among other festive items. If you’d like a brain boost with your Halloween gift, there’s also a STEM lab set, an activity book, and an educational skeleton on our list.
Check the slides ahead for this scary-fun roundup and give your little monsters a spook-tacular holiday.
