Boo ! Aldi Specialbuys Halloween range review

I blame it on the PR people with all their "Christmas in July" events but whatever the reason, lots and lots of people seem to be talking about Christmas already ! OK, to be fair, it's only 86 days away - panic stations ! - but there's another fun celebration on the calendar before then ... Halloween ! If you like to be organised well in advance, you'll be pleased to know that Aldi's Specialbuys Halloween range will be hitting the shops this Thursday (1st October).

They sent us through a selection of the products from the range and they're all great fun. These boppers and glasses really appealed to all three of the Madhouse kids.

They're ideal if you have any Halloween parties coming up or you want a simpler (and cleaner !) alternative to face paints for trick-or-treating.

The item that gave us the biggest laugh though was this dancing skeleton, who looks a bit like a cross between Rod Stewart and Monster High ! If you press on the button between her feet, it blares out incredibly loud music which always makes the unsuspecting person holding it jump out of their skin and almost throw it across the room ! Perfect for Halloween frights !

 The Dracula doorbell is equally loud and will also make trick or treaters jump out of their skins if you ask them to push it to claim their booty ! With its flashing red eyes, loud doorbell sound and booming Dracula voice asking if you are scared, it will delight Halloween fans of all ages !

I absolutely love this Jack-o-lantern shaped ceramic plate which has a gorgeous vibrant orange colour and a reassuringly chunky feel. It will look great for displaying Halloween cupcakes or maybe all our trick-or-treating loot.

I also love the look of the big inflatable characters which would look great in the front porch to welcome trick or treaters !

We all love Halloween here at The Madhouse so I think we'll have to pop down to Aldi to stock up on some more bits and pieces ! The complete range is as follows :
