Hallmark's Alive and Talking Pumpkin



There are some really interesting products being made for Halloween and I cannot believe I missed this one!  I am totally impressed by the video and wonder what the real version is like.  Take a look for yourself at Hallmark's Halloween Alive and Talkin' Pumpkin:

 

That's not his only comment, he has a number that include:

"Is that a mask? Please tell me it's a mask!"

"Have a nice fright!"

"Hope Your Halloween is Delightful."

"Ever since the carving, I just have this empty feeling inside..."

If you have seen the animated pumpkin up close and personal, be sure to let us know what you think. Meanwhile, I'm hoping I run into one out there in the real world...

Happy Hauntings!

Halloween Sing-A-Ma-Jigs

A couple of years ago, I discovered Fisher-Price's Sing-A-Ma-Jigs and wrote a page about them. Imagine my surprise when I discovered on this page about Sing-A-Ma-Jigs, that there were Halloween themed Sing-A-Ma-Jigs.

I suppose I really should not be surprised but I was and I think they are adorable. Included are witch, skeleton, pumpkin and ghost-themed Sing-A-Ma-Jigs.

 I've chosen to feature the pumpkin themed Sing-A-Ma-Jig on this page becauase he's so bright and bold and orange. He is perfect for playing with on Halloween or for using as a Halloween decoration, don't you think?



Happy Haunting!

Which Witch Are You?

Which kind of witch are you? A good witch or a bad witch?

I love the beautiful orange color of this image, the serious black cat and the playful text which reads,

Are you a good witch
or a bad witch?
Which witch are you?

I went looking for a bit of information about the artist, Lisa Hilliker, and discovered that she lives in Northern Vermont. She has been an artist since she was a child and was lucky enough to be surrounded by artistic people including her mother, grandmother and a very talented  middle school teacher. 

Ms. Hilliker says that she is inspired by her natural surroundings and by old barns, both of which she often incorporates into her artwork.  When she comes up with an idea, she picks out a barn board and prepares it by sanding it and then painting it with a base coat of paint.  She creates the image, antiques it and finally varnishes it. 

She has a studio at home in Vermont with her cat for company.  I have no idea if her cat is a black cat like the one in this image but nevertheless I love the Halloween-themed image.

What do you think?
And which witch are you?

Yankee Candle Witches Brew

Intrigued I am by the idea of a Yankee Candle called Witches' Brew.  Yankee Candle says that this scent is relaxing, uplifting, and soothing.

As with every Yankee Candle, each jar provides many, many hours of bewitching scent.

Yankee Candle describes Witches' Brew as both spicy and sweet. It features patchouli, which according to Wikipedia is a bushy mint plant that has a strong, heavy scent. Patchouli is also used in some incense, insect repellents and alternative medicine formulas

Fans of Yankee Candle's Witches brew buy it over and over again, wish it was available all year long and praise it because it is a fall-themed candle that does NOT smell like pumpkin or cinnamon. 

Do you think Witches' Brew is for you? And what would you have thought Witches' Brew would smell like?

Happy Haunting!

Warm Bodies: A Zombie Love Story (2013)

A long time ago, when I first heard of Warm Bodies, I really wanted to see it but then came the local reviews, and we chose to let it pass at the movie theatre. However, this weekend my husband brought this zombie love story home to watch and we settled in and watched it.

It was a movie for zombie fans particularly aimed at young zombie fans, I think. It was entertaining and it had funny moments but I also found it slightly odd. How could a zombie love story be anything but odd? How could zombies exist in different states of dead? Not our ordinary way of thinking about zombies but then, given the subject matter, there really is no limit to the twists one could put in a movie about zombies.

It was cute though and I think Common Sense Media summed it up fairly nicely, although they may have liked it more than I did, when they said, "WARM BODIES is part Romeo and Juliet love story, part Shaun of the Dead biting comedy. It's funny, contemplative, and sweetly romantic"

The movie is rated PG-13 and there was some zombie violence and some language.

If you like zombie movies and try to catch them all, I'll recommend this one. If you aren't interested in zombie movies normally, I'd say pass.

Happy Haunting!

I Love Zombie Mugs (2013)

Zombie lovers beware...there's a new coffee mug in town.

We love this new mug, which reads, "Zombie Serum...It Brings Me Back To Life" because, as all coffee lovers know, that is what coffee does to us.

It would be perfect for use at Halloween and all year long for true zombie fans, don't you think?

Declare your love of zombies by putting your hands on a great zombie coffee mug! This zombie serum mug is available directly from Amazon by clicking right here.

Edited in 2015: Currently this mug is not available on Amazon. I have left the links on this page in case Amazon brings some more zombie serum into stock. However, you might also look for it on eBay by clicking right here.

The Zombie Lego is Here!


No need to worry about them coming because the Zombie Legos are already here!  You'll find a wide assortment of these adorable, er perhaps not so adorable, figures and even a few sets devoted to zombies on Amazon.

From Lego Minifigures Series 1 is the zombie shown above, kit number 8683, but this office worker is just one of many. You will also find available a Lego zombie driver, bride and groom, painter and more. We think they would make a magnificent Halloween treat for our grown sons or even a stocking stuffer for a zombie fan. If it is one of Lego's zombie minifigures that you are after, you will find Lego's complete selection on Amazon by clicking right here.



If you'd rather have a whole Lego kit that includes zombies, you can turn to the Lego Monster Fighters set 9465 called The Zombies or Lego Monster Fighters set 40076 called The Car. This set would be too much fun to work in October, don't you think?

This page was inspired by a page dedicated to Lego's Monster Fighters series called New Halloween Lego Sets. You will find many more Halloween-theme Lego sets at that link.

Happy Haunting!

Easter Zombie Bunnies

Continuing with our zombie Easter theme, we uncovered these ah, interesting, Easter zombie bunnies. 

If you enjoy all things zombie, you'll likely enjoy this The Bunnies are a Comin' Bunnies Invasion series that features this cute little bunny rabbit...

We love that the image is available from the artist on Zazzle in card form, as shown here, as well as on a coffee mug (as shown below) or t-shirt (not shown) for men or women.  The mug is customizable so note that I chose a orange for the interior color, which seems to suit the mug well although I think a plain white interior would work well, too.

 
 
Hoppy Easter!

Chocolate Zombie Easter Bunny

You know I wouldn't have believed it if you had simply told me there was such a thing as a Chocolate Zombie Easter Bunny. However, I've seen this twisted rabbit myself.

He's a white chocolate bunny designed to be a highly unusual addition to your Easter celebrations.

He's available on Amazon by clicking right here though I think it is poor advertising that they picture the zombie bunny with another headless bunny...because it is misleading and only the green zombie bunny is included. However, at least when you shop on Amazon you know your purchase will be shipped for free if it totals $25 or more.


The chocolate zombie bunny is also available on eBay. Sometimes you can save a few dollars by shopping on eBay and if you prefer to shop there, you can search for him there by clicking right here.

How does the Chocolate Zombie Bunny taste? I honestly do not know, but I don't think that part is really important, is it?

Happy Haunting!
