The Best Toys for Halloween

It´s autumn again and Halloween is right around the corner. A tradition that began in the 16th century and means: “All Saint´s Eve”, the night in which spirits of the dead are believed to roam freely on Earth. Halloween has its origin in a Celtic festivity known as Samhain, that celebrates the end of the harvest. Today, Halloween is synonymous of parties and costumes, a great opportunity to celebrate with our children. Today at The Toy Blog, we´d like to propose several toys that will inspire costumes and make-up ideas for your children and help their imaginations run wild.

The ancient Celts believed that with the arrival of Samhain, good and evil spirits came from the other world. Dressing in costumes and masks, helped people scare away the bad kind of spirit. Girls will have a great time playing with these Pinypon figures. There is Frankie, with his magic potion, the Mummy, the Witch, the Skeleton and the Wolf, which glow in the dark and come with cute hair clips.

There is also the Roman tradition of Halloween, which they called “Harvest Festivity” in honour of the Goddess of fruit trees. But it wasn´t until 1840, in the United Stated, that Halloween became popular.  Parades, parties and the traditional pumpkin, with a candle placed inside, protect the house and family from evil spirits.

Zombie Princesses are a fun example of costumes and make up for the young girls at home so these classic princesses are transformed into beautiful zombies. This collection of dolls allows girls to easily move their arms and legs. Choose among Rapunzel, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White and Bella. Each includes a hairbrush.

Trick or Treat

Trick or treat is part of a popular legend of Celtic origin in which the spirits that roamed around town would stop at each door and ask for a trick or a treat. If your son still doesn´t know what he wants to be this Halloween, find inspiration in these terrifying Halloween toys by Famoclick. Their Monsters vs. Zombies collection includes Pirates and Soldiers, Frankenstein and Dracula, the Werewolf and the Invisible Man. They all glow in the dark.

The youngest girls at home can choose between the Witch, the Nymph or the Fairy, that are all part of the limited edition of Barriguitas by Famosa.

How are you going to celebrate Halloween this year?
