Candym schmandy. There's more to Halloween that sugar. I've already mentioned I'm a fan of the Calico Critters (we've got a contest running now), and I want to call out the other Halloween gift from them theCalico Critters Happy Halloween set ($16.99).
What else am I loving for Halloween? We can't get enough of this Halloween book Vunce Upon a Time by J. Otto Seibold and Siobhan Vivian. It's the story of a young vampire who loves two things vegetables and candy. He's got to be brave to build up his candy stash. It's a riot--best for kids 3 and up ($11.55).
Little ones love the sweet tale of sharing Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever! The beloved Don Freeman character gives his most-excellent costume to a distressed pal. A hit with toddlers ($3.99)
Want a playdate activity to decorate pumpkins that doesn't involve knives? Me too! That's why I love the Funkins "Build a Pumpkin Set" available on Pottery Barn Kids. These reusable fabric pieces decorations attach to the pumpkin without carving instruments. (On sale $5.99 and up)
