Ohhhh, Target...you're one of the best providers of Halloween feels. And I'm all about the Halloween Feels. This is nothing new. I've written about how much I love Target's Halloween offerings before. And the feeling of happiness always washes over me whenever I first lock eyes on their amazing Halloween setups every year. So this year, Target has completely lost their minds. First off, the theme of this years tremendous event is "Trickus Treatus". Now, I haven't seen anything related to the Roman Empire other than Roman Reigns figures in the toy aisle, but I'm pretty sure I dig the name and the theme anyway.
So we've come into our proverbial treasure chest. But what goodies await our discovery?
Ok, so a good warmup. The annual offerings of home and party goods. For some, Halloween is all about the party, and Target is hooking you up with the essentials for that party in spades, brah. Plates, napkins, decorations, and more! Pretty sweet deal. I know a couple people who love Halloween so much, they'd probably keep these up all year round. Do I blame them? Nope. I can't fault anyone for keeping up those sweet pumpkins and a Trick or Treat sign out in March!
Ok, I want them all now.
Got a pet? Target doesn't discriminate. Good! They want to ensure your pet will have a delightful season as well as us. Although, I must confess to wanting a squeaky Dracula for myself. Especially when it looks like he's stuffed in a sleeping bag. My gosh, how do they expect me not to want that?!?! They know the demographic for pets and humans and they have no problem exploiting it!
It would be silly of me not to mention the yearly tradition of my fiance becoming overjoyed by the Halloween Pyrex. This year, the favorite seems to be adorable monsters. In previous years, it's been sugar skulls, cats, and ghosts. We have stacks of these bowls and usually use them for our bunnies to drink water out of. In fact, I spy a Christmas themed bowl in their pen right now.
Also, I'm in love the green lid. I like green, what can I say?
which I wrote about years ago. The Universal Monsters are always a perfect fallback for Halloween. I mean what's more Halloween than a Frankenstein costume? Now, in the most recent years, it seemed that they were being used sparingly by companies and only brought back when they couldn't get the rights for Freddy or Jason. I always loved seeing these characters in stores, especially around this time. I love the more contemporary horror icons, but we gotta still show some love for those who brought us to the dance. Masks, costumes, makeup kits (that is definitely welcome throwback!) and fun accessory packs to ensure a great Halloween had by all. The highlight though is the beautiful plastic masks.
Target has brought the Halloween goods and my confidence in celebrating Halloween is at an all time high. I can't wait to see what the rest of the season brings us. If you're like me, you're constantly checking every store for more goodies, and this is your best starting point!
