Halloween with Pottery Barn Kids Review

I am a self proclaimed Pottery Barn junkie. I remember when the one close to me opened. I would spend an hour looking around thinking about all the things I wanted to own from there.  My family has two really cool photo boxes from there with little albums in them. They are really neat.  When I found out I was pregnant with Noah, I was excited because I could shop at Pottery Barn Kids.  My favorite thing I purchased from PBK is Noah’s Octopus Sprinkler. I bought it when he was 1.  It is the most adorable thing. I have pictures of him playing with it at different ages and it doesn’t matter how old he is in the different pictures he has the same look of joy and excitement on his face. It is his favorite summer toy. My philosophy is if it is from Pottery Barn Kids, it’s going to be adorable. I think when I get married again someday I am registering at Pottery Barn. I would love to have my whole home decorated in Pottery Barn stuff.

 I had the opportunity to review some Halloween products from Pottery Barn. They have so many cute things for Halloween.  I was able to review two items.  I reviewed the Halloween Treat Basket & Liner.  It is this huge basket with a Halloween themed liner.  I love Halloween and passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.  Growing up we had this particular wooden bowl for Halloween candy. I am not sure if it is lost or packed away somewhere, but I haven’t seen it in a while. The trick to the perfect candy is to have a good variety of candy and mix it up so you give the goblins choices.  I remember the wooden bowl had to be refilled all the time and it was kind of hard to mix the bowl up. The Trick or Treat Basket with Liner is big enough to mix and hold a huge quantity of candy.  It’s easy to manage though.  You can even get it personalized with your last name, if you want. 

The other item I reviewed is a Pumpkin treat tote for Noah.  If you are going trick-or-treating it is important to have a good sturdy Halloween Treat Bag to haul your goodies home with.  When I was little we used pillow cases. I think that Noah is too young for a pillow case, so I would buy him a plastic pumpkin. It worked for the night half the time. I took him in his wagon and sometimes the handle would fall off and candy would be in the wagon.  I never took the pumpkin and put it up after the candy was gone so it became Noah’s new toy, it would be without a handle and smooshed in.   So, every year I had to buy him a new one.  I am so excited to have an adorable one from Pottery Barn where I know it is well made and I know that it will last for a long time.  I can’t wait to show it off when we go trick-or-treating.  Pottery Barn Kids also has adorable Halloween costumes. I wish I would have waited to buy Noah’s costume but I found his at the end of August and since he is obsessed with space, he is going to be an astronaut.  I really like that some of the Pottery Barn Kids costumes can fit preteens and they are also really well made. That is something I have noticed about costumes is they can be really flimsy and kind of weird looking. This is the first year Noah is not being an animal for Halloween.
