    Halloween - Toys or Candy

    Advertisements
    I got a Oriental Trading Company catalog yesterday, with all their halloween stuff. They have a huge selection of both candy and toys.
    I was thinking, since there are a couple kids in my neighborhood with dietary restrictions (allergies or the like), and so I was thinking about getting some of the little toys too. But then I was thinking, should I get a mix or just toys or just candy.

    What do you do?

    (wait for the poll)



    by toys, I mean they have stickers, bubbles, spider rings, rubber ducks (though those are a box more pricy), stress ball pumpkins and skulls, and so on

    If you know the kids with allergies, then you could just get toys specifically for them and hand out candy to every one else. If you don't know the kids, I'd get a mix of both and let them choose.

    I wish everyone would give out stickers at Halloween. I hate all the candy and it's so expensive! Plus everyone gets Tootsie Rolls because you get more for your money, but then everyone is stuck with a GIGANTIC PILE OF NASTY TINY POOP LOGS.

    Ok but my serious answer is that I think having a mix would be great.

    I would get a mix because I've done the toy thing but the trick or treaters wanted candy instead.

    I'd go with a mix.

    Of course I'm the one that hands out Jell-o shots on Halloween so YMMV.

    AS much as I dont like candy overload I dont like trinkets even more. HOw about mini popcorn bags? I know we had a couple of those last year. Cadence got several extras since she was a box of popcorn.

    I coupon like crazy and will be handing out little bags of gold fish I have a stock pile of. Along with juice I have like 30 boxes of(each box has like 10 things of juice in it I believe.)
    Signature removed due to size.

    I say a mix. I like the idea of toys but some might be to old for them? So do a toy and a piece of candy.
