    We just bought a house and can't wait to decorate! We have a toddler who is just thrilled about going out & trick or treating in our neighborhood! We are up for anything! Our son loves browsing through all the Halloween decor at the stores. He's surprisingly mature – he picked out his own outfit last year – a silver boogie man mask & glow in the dark bones outfit – twas awesome! This prize would be great to win. We would use it for many years to come. Thank you!

    I like scary without gross. This would be cool on my porch.

    My Halloween style would definitely have to be classic horror…Love to put out my tombstones, spiders, webs, eerie music, dummies, ghosts hanging the trees,black silk flowers in the garden,and a few eerie intricately carved pumpkins.

    Kid Kooky with a mild touch of classic horror would define our style! Just a little scary ,as we have lots of younger kids around here.

    Ha! What a crazy, fun idea! I like the way they don't really stand out as halloween decorations… all the better for a good scare.

    We had stopped decorating for Halloween because we lived so far out in the country.Now we have moved back into the city and have really gotten back into it.Spent all weekend making tombstones and coffins.Our yard is spooky but not gorry, my kids and me put a lot of effort into decorating.

    I take a non-scary approach. I prefer a look that is mostly fall-themed instead of Halloween so that it can stay up through the rest of the season. Mixing in a few Halloween items for an October touch!
