Halloween Basket Ideas
My mom has always made me themed buckets or baskets for almost every holiday and now that tradition has continued with my daughter. It’s always fun to get a basket full of goodies, right? Here are some fun kid’s Halloween basket ideas to get you started.
Every year we always have some fun DVD or book in our baskets. I’ve found the perfect kid’s Halloween DVD called Spookley the Square Pumpkin that will be perfect for any little one’s Halloween basket. See the press release below:
“SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN”
MAKES HALLOWEEN UNHAUNTINGLY PERFECT WITH
NEW TWO-DISC DVD & CD RELEASE
BELOVED ANNUAL TV SPECIAL,
BASED ON JOE TROIANO’S BEST-SELLING BOOK,
ARRIVES IN STORES ON SEPTEMBER 10
This Halloween, Cinedigm makes trick or treating unhauntingly perfect with the September 10 release of SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN, now available for the first time in a two-disc DVD and CD set.
The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, written by Joe Troiano and published by Holiday Hill Farm, is one of seven titles in the Spookley book series that, collectively, has sold over two million copies. The animated television special has been a long time Halloween favorite for the whole family, airing on Nick, Jr. from 2002-2005 and on Playhouse Disney from 2006-2012. A broadcaster for 2013 is expected to be announced shortly.
The eBook launched in 2010 and peaked as the #9 eBook bestseller. Spookley was featured on the cover of four million Scholastic Book Club mailings. The new DVD release features exclusive value adds, including the 16 song CD sing-along and five video picture books.
In the world where Spookley lives, ‘the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins.’ But Spookley is not round – he’s square – and he is often teased for his odd shape. Soon, however, he is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe – three hilarious spiders who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the “Pick of the Patch” on Halloween.
I couldn’t believe how intrigued my daughter was with her Spookley DVD. In fact, I was supposed to be cleaning the house while she was watching Spookley and I kept finding myself stopping to watch it. It’s absolutely adorable and filled with great characters, laughs and smiles. If you make your kids a little Halloween basket each year, Spookley would be the perfect addition.
I just checked Walmart.com and it looks like Spookley is out of stock. You can also purchase Spookley at Best Buy, eBay and Amazon.com for around $7.99.
Disclosure: I received the above mentioned DVD as part of my Halloween promotions. My opinion is honest and my own.
