Candy gets all of the attention when it comes to Halloween, but its joys are sadly short-lived. If you’re looking for something that’ll extend the Halloween fun for the whole month of October (and possibly beyond), look no further than some of the best Halloween toys.

The greatest Halloween toys run the gamut. Some are little pick-me-ups that you can dole out in the run-up to Halloween to get kids excited. Others are small and can be slipped into a spooky basket or a goodie bag at a class party. Still others double as boredom-busting Halloween crafts or activities, guiding them through decorations that you can proudly display all month long. For Halloween toys for babies and toddlers, there are stuffies and construction sets that are sure to grab their attention (without frightening them too much). But teens and tweens want something more complicated, including strategy-based board games that may have Halloween themes, but can really be used all year.

Here we’ve rounded up our favorite Halloween toys of 2022, which include everything from trendy toys like pop fidgets and Squishmallows to Good Housekeeping Institute Toy Award winners. You’re sure find something to please everyone in your boo crew.
