Posted on: October 30, 2023

Oh, its that’s time of the year where the little goblins get excited for everything Halloween!  Therefore, it is the perfect time to create Halloween gifts of ‘Boo-rific Books & Baubles found on the shelves at Coles.  Let the ghoul times roll!
Start your littlest one off right with the Halloween Pumpkin Bib.  It will catch all the spills of the day. Also read your baby a catchy Halloween rhyme from the following:
🎃 If You’re Spooky and You Know It by Aly Fronis: this nursery rhyme board book is a Halloween-themed twist on the classic children’s song “If You’re Happy and You Know It”.

🎃 The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin by Sonali Fry: a gently spooky twist on “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” makes this a perfect nursery rhyme for Halloween!

There is something about giving the next generations a glimpse into the characters from the books we grew up on or that feeling as a child receiving the coolest plush toy of that time! 
For Halloween, Coles has plush toys Squishmallows—BUT they are looking a little different this spooky season.  Meet Vlad the Vampire, a bloody fang-tastic plush to add your Squishmallows collection.  Also, a couple of beloved authors have Halloween stories to share:

🎃 Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter: Happy Halloween, Little Critter brings the beloved lead character Little Critter to a a haunted house party for Halloween!

🎃 Canada’s best-selling author Robert Munsch’s book appropriately titled ‘Boo!’ is a seasonal favourite, where Lance paints his face to get more candy on Halloween.  A hilarious Halloween read.
