I’m a huge fan of the Halloween season. I LOVE to decorate every room in our home – including the bathroom and bedroom.
When my kids were little, I kept our decorations very kid-friendly. As a die hard horror movie fan, I wanted to go all out with the creepiest things I could find, but I didn’t want to give my kids nightmares. Now that my kids are young adults, I can put out any decorations I want.
Even though I am into creepy things, I still add cute Halloween decorations to the mix too. I have an adorable plush bat holing a smiling pumpkin on the shelf next to a severed hand. You get the idea.
Have you ever heard of Mr. Christmas. I LOVE Mr. Christmas products. I see them on television (such as QVC) and I want to purchase everything I see. We own several Mr. Christmas pieces. I am especially a fan of the brand’s retro Christmas designs.
I never knew there was a Mr. Halloween. Just like Mr. Christmas, the brand offers the most delightful Halloween decorations to brighten up your home.
I was excited when I received a piece from Mr. Christmas to review. I received a Mr. Christmas Motion Activated Ceramic Candy Bowl ($49.99). I received the Black Cat version, which is great because we have a black cat named Maisy Boo (yes, that is her real name).
This adorable black cat candy bowl has a huge happy grin and is wearing a festive orange witches hat.
The bowl measures 9.4″W x 9.6″D x 12″H.
It’s made out of ceramic with a pretty, glossy finish.
YOU CAN ADD MORE CANDY THAN WHAT IS SHOWN… I took some out so I could flip it over and take a photo of the inside to show you where the motion sensor is located.
You can wash this, but it’s handwash only due to the mechanism that helps this bowl make it’s fun sounds.
Inside the mouth (on top) you’ll find the battery compartment (batteries are not included). It take two AA batteries.
After you insert the batteries, switch the device on and fill the mouth with candy.
There is a motion sensor at the top of the mouth. When someone goes to grab a piece of candy it sets off the device which plays fun, non-spooky Halloween sounds.
The motion sensor is pictured above (where the arrow is pointing). Behind that, on the roof of it’s mouth, is the battery compartment and speaker.
I made a brief video so you can see how it sounds. Sadly, YouTube made is a short video which doesn’t give me an embed code. You can find the video HERE.
Here is a sound file in case you don’t want to watch the very brief video I created (above).
Even if you don’t want to use this as a candy bowl, you can keep this out as a fun decoration.
I don’t know if it works with all designs, but ours plays the music when we turn the lights on in the kitchen. Perhaps it senses the change in light. It scared our (adult) son the first time he flicked the kitchen light on and it played all the sounds.
The only downside that I can think of is that you cannot hold a lot of candy in the bowl at one time, otherwise it pours out of it’s mouth. Honestly, it’s not a big deal. All you need do do is when the candy starts to run low, just add another handful into the mouth. It’s no big deal.
Other available designs include a Ghost, Bat, Frankenstein and a Jack-O-Lantern.
They are all so cute. I would love to add another one or two to our home’s decor. I really like the ghost and the bat. Maybe one day I’ll add to our black cat Mr. Halloween motion activated candy dish.
Mr. Halloween/Mr. Christmas has SO MANY wonderful home decorations. They even have a Mr. Cottontail (Easter decor) and Miss Valentine
