Madame Alexander's El Dia de Los Muertos Doll for 2015

I am so freaking excited to see that my favorite doll company (the Madame Alexander Doll Company) has created an El Dia de Los Muertos themed doll for the 2015 holiday season.

She wears black and white striped stockings, jazzy red shoes, a black and blue colorful floral folk peasant style dress, sugar skull makeup, and a red flowered headdress. So cute!

Lite Brix Monster and Halloween Building Toys for Kids

The Lite Brix Zombie Manor includes two little glowing zombie figures. The kit includes over 450 pieces and of course needs batteries to make it light up. This looks so fun to play with!

The Vampiez Vanity playset includes a female vampire figure, a candelabra with a bat, a hair brushing station and a perfume station. It's a 41 piece set.

The cutesey Ghoulish Glamz Boutique comes with a little monster figure doll called Maia.

The Moonlight Monsters Starlight Stage includes the Starlet monster figure. Check out the spooky bats on the corners!

Unfortunately the Spooky Spa isn't very spooky. It's too pink and purple. I wish toy companies had the guts to make Halloween toys that still appeal to girls but are actually a bit scarier and use a lot less pink in their design!

I'd prefer the Moonlight Ride car if it looked more like a hearse and less like a weird Jeep/Hummer hybrid.

The Lite Brix Moonlight Mansion has some nice touches, such as the cemetery fencing and tombstone-shaped dining chairs. I also like the chandeliers.

Your kids can play with these Halloween and monster-themed toys year round!

Cute Little Universal Monsters Footzeez Plush Toys

The Dracula Footzeez looks sweetly menacing.

I don't think this Universal Mummy Footzeez would be very much fun to play with all by himself. He's basically just a plush blob of bandages. But in conjunction with his Universal Horror monster friends, he fits right in.

What young kid wouldn't want to play with their own stuffed Wolfman Footzeez?

Gorgeous Halloween Home Decor Pillows

These eyecatching Halloween pillows are made by Christine Altmann Art in Pennsylvania. The pillows are zippered and reversible, and I find it so convenient that they come with pillow inserts. (I hate buying a nice pillow cover and then having to rush around trying to find the right size insert!)

"Heading Home"

Spooky Trick or Treaters

Haunted Inheritance

Headless Horseman Pillow

"Halloween Hi" Pillow

"Halloween Honeymoon" Pillow

"Candy Time" Pillow

"Patience, Halloween Nears" Pillow

"Keep Running" Halloween Pillow

These are perfect for tossing on a couch, dressing up a bed, displaying on one of your kitchen barstools, or adding to the bench on your front porch this autumn!

The Halloween Inflatable I'm Finally Tempted By

I don't generally put Halloween inflatables on my yard in autumn. Something about the noise they make or the constant blowing and moving around in the wind bothers me. But here's one that finally tempts me: an inflatable mortuary! So cool!

The back of the inflatable mortuary isn't decorated at all, unfortunately.

Wouldn't this be great for a funeral-themed Halloween party?
