Disclaimer: I received Glitzi Globes and The Trash Pack Series to pass out at Halloween; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone.
This year for Halloween we handed out Glitzi Globes and The Trash Pack Series instead of candy! It was definitely a hit with the kids that came trick-or-treating! We heard kids yelling to their parents as they walked away from our door, “I got a Trash Pack!” Those were a hit with both the younger and older kids alike. One older boy said that the The Trash Pack Series was “sick” (meaning awesome), and another said, “Score! A Trash Pack!”
The Glitzi Globes were also popular, and the little girls thought they looked cool. My kids only went trick-or-treating themselves for about 45 minutes, because they were too excited about helping me give out treats. They wanted to show the kids what the Glitzi Globes and Trash Packs looked like with samples they were carrying around, and they wanted to see which ones the kids wanted. My kids actually said, “I don’t really care about the candy, I just want to give these out.”
Positives of Giving Out Toys instead of Candy:
1. We were different from the other houses passing out treats.
2. Even kids with allergies could enjoy our treats!
3. My son says, “You eat candy, but you can keep these forever!”
4. There are no calories in toys!
5. It’s a healthier option for Halloween treats.
What are Glitzi Globes and The Trash Pack Series?
1. They both come in little packages and can be put on the top of a pencil.
2. The Glitzi Globe is a mini glitter snow globe the kids can make and it is super cute.
3. The Trash Pack Series has over 100 different trash characters to collect and swap, and they come in cute little trashcans. My kids now want to collect more!
I will definitely be handing out toys as an alternative to candy in the future. The kids that came over were so excited to get them. We know many people in our neighborhood with severe allergies, so I was super excited to have something I knew they could enjoy. Overall, I think we were the hit of the neighborhood and I bet many kids will expect something cool again from our house next year!
