GIVEAWAY: Spookley the Square Pumpkin Prize Pack! 5 Winners!! -CLOSED-


This month Kidtoons is featuring:

Spookley the Square Pumpkin:  In a world where "the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins," Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by the other pumpkins because of his square shape. Soon, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince Spookley that, square or not, he has a right to be the "Pick of the Patch" on Halloween. A square pumpkin the "Pick of the Patch"? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots. Although he is encouraged to continue to become the "Pick of the Patch" by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley isn't sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire patch. As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across  the patch towards a raging river below, Spookley's square shape helps him save the day.  Spookley realizes "it's fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it's better to be a square!"

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Spookley the Square Pumpkin has been named the offical Spokes-Pumpkin through a partnership with PACER Center.  Go here for more information.

Kidtoons is "dedicated to helping parents connect with their kids by bringing family friendly animated movies to the big screen."  Find a location near you here.
There have been lots of new theaters added this month!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
