The Oriental Trading website is crack, in online shopping form. It’s a bulk candy and novelties company where everything always seems deceptively cheap, until you go to check out and realize you have dropped fifty dollars on what are essentially crappy gumball machine toys.
We always make bags for trick-or-treaters filled with an assortment of candy and toys. I usually get cheap things like spider rings and ghost erasers from the dollar store, but this year I decided to up my game. So I went on an Oriental Trading shopping spree. Here’s my haul.
Snake Finger Puppets
Because I had to, in tribute to the snake I taped to itself. And because I would want these if I was a kid. And because I want these now.
Becuase I’m a sucker for monster things, even doofy, smiling ones.
Monster Spin Tops
Again, sucker for monster things. And tops are always fun, if only for a minute or two.
Because their parents will hate me eternally.
Because they rule, duh.
Because they’re adorable, duh.
Because such a thing called Spooky Sushi exists, and there was no way I was passing that up.
Because I had to find something cheap to make it an even $50 and get the free shipping.
