    Target

    Promising review: "I feel like every year the cat scratcher houses get better. This one has covers that go on the sides to cover where the support beam for the second story poke out; my cat usually chews those off first and then he can’t sit on the upper story, which he prefers. This one is very cute, and he loves it, he helped us put it together by pushing the last piece into place." —Grant

    Price: $15

    26. A rotating LED ghost tabletop projector that'll put on when the lights are low and it's time to BOO-gie the night away. This little projector will guarantee a ghoulishly good time.

    Target

    Promising review: "This is super adorable! My kids like seeing the ghosts move across the walls and ceiling. All the ghosts have different poses and expressions. The way the device is shaped helps make the images seem natural (not bent or create odd shapes) as they move around the room. I don’t have this centered in my room and even the ghosts across the way appear more natural as the device rotates." —Brandy

    Price: $25

    27. A bat wing pet costume to help transform your adorable furry friend from a four-legged beast to a flying beast! Since it's a harness, little Fido won't be able to wriggle his way outta this one...

    30. A festive and fitting dog bandana, perfect for those puppy pals who aren't as into Halloween costumes as you are. This way he still gets in on the festivities, and doesn't have to be embarrassed by his costume all night.
