Both my children are now at an age where holidays and seasonal events like Halloween mean so much more to them. There’s so much fun to be had at this time of year, especially if you have children. There are Halloween crafts, art and other activities, parties, decorations and, of course dressing up and trick-or-treating – but buying into every single holiday gimmick can become expensive for parents.
That’s where Poundworld come in. They have a huge range of Halloween products available, including everything you would need for a Halloween party or any little trick-or-treater’s sweet-collecting needs. And the best part, of course, is that everything is just £1!
We were very lucky to be invited to Poundworld in order to select some of their range to review. As you might imagine, the children were absolutely thrilled by all the weird and wonderful things on offer. They had great fun trying and picking out all sorts of things, from spooky goblets to witches hats – and of course, lots of sweets.
We won’t have our real Halloween party and trick-or-treating evening until the 31st. However, we set up our decorations early in order to give a good idea of just how much you can get for a relatively small amount of money. We purchased decorations, some fancy dress items, party cups and plates, snacks, trick or treating buckets and LOTS of sweets. We got everything below for just £30.
From the things we purchased we have some clear favourites that were excellent value for money. These sweet collection buckets are the perfect size for treat-or-treating. I think they will be used for many years to come:
In addition, we also loved this wooden ‘Trick or Treat’ sign, designed to be put up outside your home to let trick-or-treaters know that you are taking part. It’s great quality and an absolute bargain for just a pound.
Sensory-seeking Biggest absolutely loved this light-up flashing goblet. I have a feeling that he will be playing with it long past Halloween!
As you can see, both children very much enjoyed their ‘practice’ Halloween. We did let them have a small packet of sweets each but the rest have been safely put away ready for the big night.
Finally, here is a selection of products we bought for just £30:
- Paper plates, cubs and bowls
- Paper lanterns
- Hanging skeleton decoration
- Light-up cup
- Monster beaker
- Crisps, sweets and other snacks
- Halloween costume items such as a witch’s hat headband and skeleton balaclava
- Cobweb tablecloth
- Wooden trick-or-treat sign
Overall, parents can’t go far wrong with Poundworld if they are hoping to capture all of the fun of a Halloween party or event, but at a great price. We can’t wait to use all of our purchases again at the end of the month. Don’t forget, there’s still plenty of time to get down to Poundworld and grab a spooky bargain!
