Halloween at Aldi

I was never a huge fan of Halloween before I had kids. Now, I love to dress them up in cute costumes and have the house spookily decorated even though they don't really understand what is going on. 

Aldi have recently released their Halloween range and it's packed with loads of reasonably priced items. I do sometimes worry that cheap items equal rubbish quality but we recently received a few samples of their Halloween range to put them to the test and hopefully find that I was wrong.

Firstly, we received 2 boxes of their LED Berry Lights in green and orange (£4.99 for 90 lights). I think that this is a great price for quite a lot of lights. In addition to this, you are supplied with the 3 AA batteries that are required and they come with a 3 year warranty. They shine brightly too which is great! Aldi also do similar battery-operated lights in ghost, eyeball and pumpkin shapes for the same price! 

Secondly, we have the Halloween gel stickers. I love gel stickers. I always have the Christmassy ones up during the festive season but this is the first I've spotted Halloween ones! I love the running fake blood and they stick really well. Perfect bargain for only 99p! Their decorations don't end there though. You can also pick up hanging decorations for £1.49, and a stretchy indoor spiders web for 99p. If you're planning on throwing a Halloween party, you can scare your guests with skull, hands, feet and arm and leg bone table decorations for £3.99 and a fab 'Enter if you Dare' wooden sign for only £1.49. 

Thirdly, we received a gorgeous witches costume. This is 3-4 years so a little too big for my baby girl but I love it so much that I actually think I'll keep it for her! The material and colours are fantastic for it only being £3.99. I love the tutu underneath the skirt and spooky ghost print on the skirt and hat. The children's costumes go up to age 8 and also come in vampire, skeleton and baterella designs. 

There are some fab children's accessories too and C is quite taken with the felt masks. I prefer felt masks over paper ones any day (less chance of children ripping them and tantrums ensuing. We received a pumpkin one and a Dracula one but bat and witch designs are available too for only 79p - bargain! 

You can purchase your child a Halloween headband for £1.49 or stripy Halloween tights to finish off their costume for £1.29. These are available in black & purple, black & orange, black & pink and black & white so there is something for every costume! 

Aldi stock adult costumes too. From vampires to skeletons and witches for only £7.99 and you can add Halloween accessories such as a witches hat or red devil horns for only £1.99. 

Lastly, no Halloween is complete without kiddies trick or treat bags. Getting sweeties is the most important bit! These gorgeous felt bags are just £1.49 and I can't wait to use them on Halloween night. You can also pick your child up an LED Glow in the Dark torch for £1.99 for trick or treating in the dark. 

When you've come back home from trick or treating with all your goodies, Aldi will help you settle down with some Halloween DVDs for £2.99 or your child can unwind with some playtime using the Halloween Play Doh (£4.99). 

These items are available from Aldi stores from 2nd October 2014 and are available while stocks last.
