It’s almost Halloween and we could not be more excited! One of our favourite times of the year, October is full of intrigue, fabulous colours and spooky goings on. We are always looking for fun, exciting things to get during this time, whether we need cheering up or something to do with friends! There is always something great to discover to boost your mood. After much searching through the haunted shopping centres and creepy webpages, we have found some incredibly spine tingling offerings to make Halloween horrible!
We all love a cuddly toy, but can you love one that’s a little feisty? These adorably cute creatures are just like all the others, but with a little twist.
Fiendishly fluffy, your new friend comes with a warning on the box that should be taken seriously. Our Favourite Sammy Suckerpunch, dislikes bath time, his tail and your mum! Upset him and he turns into a snarling, grumpy, yet still adorable pup.
No detail has been missed with Feisty Pets. Arriving in a cardboard crate with bars on the windows, Feisty Pets go from cute to creepy by squeezing the back of their head. The kids will love the information about their new pal which will easily fuel their imaginations for hours.
