Swizzels set to host UK’s largest virtual Halloween Party

Iconic British sweet maker Swizzels is set to host the UK’s largest virtual Halloween party in a bid to save the scary season.

The brand has revealed its plans to launch Swizzels Fright Night Live – an evening of live Halloween- themed family fun for the nation to join in and enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

The interactive live event will take place on Saturday 31st October from 5pm until 7pm and will also be hosted across its website and social media channels.

Fright Night Live will be live streamed from a secret haunted location and will be filled with a whole host of Halloween-themed entertainment as well as tricks and treats. Prizes will be up for grabs throughout the evening through a range of interactive challenges and competitions.

Claire Lee, NPD Brand Manager at Swizzels said:

“We know that Halloween will look a little bit different this year. Trick or treating and big parties can’t take place unfortunately but that doesn’t mean families and friends can’t have fun and celebrate. We love this time of the year and our aim is to create the biggest virtual party possible that everyone is invited to – simply go online and join in the Halloween shenanigans. There’ll be something in there for all ages so it really will be a fun family friendly evening…with some ghoulish surprises thrown in too!”

To register your interest or to find out more about the event, head to the Swizzels website. Alternatively, simply head over to Swizzels’ social media channels on the evening of Halloween at 5pm.

TEACH YOUR DOG HOW TO ‘TRICK FOR TREATS’ THIS HALLOWEEN

Cocker Spaniel Bella aka ‘Paul Spaniels’ stars in new video series showcasing ‘spooktacular’ tricks

This Halloween, premium raw pet food brand, Natural Instinct, is teaming up with Bella, a very special cocker spaniel and her owner Lynn Stacey, to prove to the nation anyone can teach their dog new tricks.

Known as ‘Paul Spaniels’ thanks to her unrivalled magical talent, dog Bella and owner Lynn will be training the nation’s dogs to perform a variety of tricks throughout October.

Each week, Bella’s videos will feature a ghoulish new trick that dog owners can watch and follow along at home. Each video will include simple step-by-step advice from dog trick Instructor, Lynn, and by the time All Hallow’s Eve is upon us, dog’s across the UK will have learnt four new tricks including a high five, a bow, a peek-a-boo action and spin!

Of course, some natural, tasty treats will be essential for positive reinforcement along the way, and dog owners need to look no further than Natural Instinct’s limited-edition spooky Halloween treat. Inspired by its much-loved beef jerky, the brand is delighted to launch a ready-to-eat snack version of mini beef jerky sausages. Made using 100% British beef heart, these naturally dehydrated mini treats are ideal for training.

Bella, a nine-year-old Assistance Dog, is a vital companion to owner Lynn who suffers from a disability. Bella, trained by Assistance Dog charity, Dog A.I.D is well known for her ability to assist with daily chores supporting Lynn in the home, as well as being a trick champion, knowing hundreds of tricks. From emptying the washing machine through to doing a handstand, making the bed, and even loading the dishwasher.

With no canine or dog owner more qualified than Lynn and furry friend, Bella, please see some top tips on successfully teaching dogs new tricks here:

1 – REWARDS

Use what motivates your dog for positive reinforcement. Try yummy, healthy treats, such as beef jerky or if they prefer, you can use toys also. Remember it is only rewarding to your dog if they actually like the reward so be sure to let them try the treat first or play with the toy.

2 – REWARD GENEROUSLY

Don’t be mean with your rewards, you need to reward your dog handsomely for a job well done, let them know they did it right and behaved well.

3 – NO DISTRACTIONS

Always start training for new tricks somewhere familiar like in a quiet room in your house, away from any distractions.

4 – SHORT SESSIONS

Break training up into short but regular sessions. Your dog will learn much better if practice is short and often and they are not overwhelmed.

5 – HAVE FUN!

If you aren’t having fun then neither is your dog. Make training sessions full of fun and your dog will be eager to participate.

Rachel Kirby, spokesperson for Natural Instinct says:

“There is a misconception that teaching dogs tricks is extremely difficult and for specific breeds only. However with the right knowledge and expert advice, all owners can teach their canine friends fun tricks in a safe way and we are delighted to be working with Lynn and Champion Trick Dog, Bella, who really are the experts.

Our Halloween mini treat hits the shelves next week and provides a great excuse to kickstart some home trickery, involving our pets in autumnal festivities. We hope our customers enjoy spending quality time with their dogs and have fun teaching ‘tricks for treats’ this Halloween.”

Halloween will be a little different this year due to Covid-19 but that does not mean it has to be any less fun! From family events to community contests, Halloween can be a blast for everyone all while staying safe. Tapping into the history of this spooky season can be done by performing a silent supper in your own home, or perhaps you would prefer to do some divination by peeling an apple in one piece and letting it drop to the floor revealing the name of your beloved.

If you want to get the community together for a fun alternative to trick or treating, holding a costume contest online or competing with your neighbors for the scariest decorations is a great way to celebrate the season. Winners can be mailed prizes or given a digital gift, such as a virtual gift card or a psychic reading online. The spirit of Halloween is more important than the traditions that were formed around it and can be adapted to modern times.

The Kids’ Table is a pop-up children’s corner that operates in pubs, restaurants and food halls across London that came to a standstill when the venues in which it offers crafty fun for kids and downtime for parents closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Kids’ Table is currently bringing the crafts that it would have been offering in person to its pint-sized punters to their kitchen tables instead via Instagram, Facebook and You Tube.

From spooky scarecrows to creepy crawlies, sensational sights and celebrity selfies, Merlin’s London attractions have something for everyone to enjoy this half term.

While visitors can expect to see some new measures in place – such as reduced capacities, pre-booking tickets online, clear social distancing measures, face coverings to be worn by staff and guests, and cashless payments, when it comes to the fun, scares, sights and adventure that each attraction offers, nothing has changed.

The London Dungeon: The Final Straw
Running until 31st October, visitors to the London Dungeon can venture through the Corridor of Misdemeanours to hear all about the dark history of scarecrows and why they were first invented. But guests will need to keep their wits about them, as not every scarecrow is what they seem…

There is so much more to discover throughout the rest of the attraction too, from Shark Walk, Penguin Point and Rock Pool Explorer, all the way to Coral Kingdom.

Madame Tussauds London
While the world of showbiz has had to cancel concerts, premieres and parties this year, the famous faces at Madame Tussauds London will still be celebrating Halloween. The world famous attraction’s figures will be sporting spooky accessories and guests will be encouraged to don their favourite fancy dress outfits when they visit throughout half term to earn themselves some delicious chocolate treats.

CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN AT HOME WITH JOHNSON’S® HAIR CARE RANGES
HELP TAME THEIR LION MANE OR SPARKLE LIKE A PRINCESS WITH RANGES TO SUIT ALL

www.johnsonsbaby.co.uk

It’s widely known that babies and children have sensitive, delicate skin that require different care to adults, but what is lesser known is that children’s hair is also very different and requires unique care, that’s why the JOHNSON’S® haircare ranges have been carefully created for your little ones.

Children’s hair is three times more delicate than adult hair and is continuously developing until around the age of 12. As a consequence, as children develop their hair changes too; from curly to straight, short to long, or blond to dark, requiring specialist care to nurture it as it develop and grow.

Each range within the JOHNSON’S® haircare portfolio provides unique benefits and the tools every parent needs to unlock knots, boost shine and strengthen hair without compromising on gentle, caring products.

Advice from the experts

Rebecca Bennett from the JOHNSON’S® team comments: ‘We all know the feeling of dragging a brush through the tangled hair of a screaming child, desperate to get away and play. As they grow up, children spend more time playing and getting messy, and so they should, however, all this activity can result in tangled locks covered in who knows what so it’s really important to look after their hair properly at such a young age, as it continues to develop during this important discovery period of their lives.

The JOHNSON’S® haircare products have been designed to look after different types of children’s hair, from long and knotty, to curly and wild and make it easy for parents to identify which product will suit their little ones locks the best. It’s really important to understand your child’s hair type to determine what it needs, so you can then adopt and follow the correct routine to nurture it in the best way.’

This Halloween, children do not need to turn into little monsters because of their haircare routine. With the help of the JOHNSON’S® haircare range, every little one’s unique hair type can be individually cared for and styled for spooky season and beyond.

JOHNSON’S® No More TanglesTM – Win the tangles tug of war with the No More Tangles™ range. Specially formulated to unlock knots and tangles with ingredients that gently cleanse for soft, smooth hair. Help your little one enjoy their new haircare routine and ROAR like a lion, taming curly hair with the JOHNSON’S® 3-step routine and embracing curly locks with cute animal ears:

JOHNSON’S Shiny Drops – For hair that needs a little shine and sparkle, try the JOHNSON’S® Shiny Drops range which is enriched with argan oil and is specially designed to boost hair’s natural shine for silky smooth, healthy feeling hair. Shine like a star by adding some glitter to your little one’s parting on Halloween – perfect pop star material!

JOHNSON’S Strength Drops – The Strength Drops range is enriched with Vitamin E and is specially designed to help strengthen hair for less breakage as you comb through those bed head knots each morning. Sprinkle some fairy-tale magic this Halloween, to create a magical princess braid:

Krispy Kreme have launched a new range of Monster Madness Halloween doughnuts and a DIY Doughnut Creation Kit in time for 31st October.

The Monster Madness range

Frankie (£2.25) – Frightful Frankenstein monster, bursting with brownie batter filling – terror-iffic!
Wolfie (£2.25) – signature ring doughnut smothered in chocolate frosting – Happy Howl-oweeeeen!
Vampie (£2.25) – Fang-tastic Dracula vampire, oozing with raspberry filling – love at first bite!
Spooky Sprinkles (£1.85) – signature ring doughnut buried in chocolate icing and spooky sprinkles – Fa-boo-lous!
Zombie Pop (£1.85) – signature ring doughnut attacked with icing and popping candy crunch – come alive!

incredibly challenging times.
With the launch of Spellville, Caper aims to provide families with children aged 4-8 with a way to make
this Halloween more magical and memorable than ever before. Additionally, Spellville and Captain
Redtail offer families hours of inspirational play activities that are ideal Half Term boredom-busters.
Graham Denney, Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder of Caper said:
“Spellville is an enchanting new caper which features Holly Goodspell, voiced by actress Milly
Roberts. Spellville invites children and their parents into a rich imaginary world filled with magical
tasks and hilarious activities designed to get kids moving and creating. The caper offers a completely
new experience that does not involve an evening of knocking on doors and asking for treats, instead
taking families to their local park during the day for a fantastic autumnal adventure. Of course, it is
even more fun if everyone dresses up in Halloween costumes while they play!”
Ben Geliher, CEO and Co-founder of Caper, formerly Lead Producer at Mind Candy, said:
“The current uncertainty around (and in some areas total cancellation of) trick or treating plans due to
COVID-19 means that families are looking for something different to do for Halloween and Half Term.
We want to provide parents and children with a positive way to have fun together while capturing the
special magic of this time of year.
Caper’s real-world, nature-focused play aims to tackle the damaging effects that sedentary lifestyles
and a lack of connection to nature are having on children. We think this is a hugely important and
relevant issue, and were able to raise our concerns with the Prime Minister last month when he
actually played a caper at Number 10, as part of London Tech Week.”

Caper is currently available on iOS and Android . The new caper ‘Spellville’ is available for free for the
entire month of October. Caper’s original eight-part series, Captain Redtail, is available for £4.99.
