Yes, it’s that time of year again. When children call on houses to solicit gifts with that age old ultimatum. Well, here’s my round-up of 10 of the coolest treats for your little ones for this Halloween and beyond. Oh, and we kick off with a specially selected pick from a 2 year old’s perspective.
MINI GHOST LIGHT
Boooo! It’s always good to get the 2yr old’s perspective and this adorable mini ghost lamp is Noa’s pick for this Hallowe’en.
This LED light from Dutch designers A Little Lovely Company is a great accessory for any super cool nursery or child’s room.
The ghost emits a soft glow making it perfect for use as a night-light. Leave it on or switch on the timer so it automatically turns off after 15 minutes. Each mini ghost light is made from eco and child friendly BPA and lead-free PVC which ensures they do not get hot to touch.

HIDE & EEK BOOK
This clever kids book is one of our favourites. Winner of the D&AD Yellow Pencil for illustration 2014. This was one of their projects which began after finding some Victorian illusions that cleverly used the translucency of paper to enable the eye to see two images as one. Turn out the lights and grab your torch to see what surprises are hiding on the next page.
