"Get Thee To Hallmark!"
« on: August 13, 2008, 03:08:32 PM »

   This morning whilst buying some greeting cards(1 birthday, 1 anniversary) I noticed that Hallmark has a new coffer for containing goodies at Halloween the "Trunk O' Treats"; a fancy uber cardboard box that looks like an old chest of some sort and when you open it the box's hinges creak open and you hear a voice that sounds very much like Boris Karloff's chanting little phrases(4 of em' count 'em, 4 phrases). I rather liked it and was very much tempted to buy it right then and there. I have the one treat box that looks like an old large book and is entitled "Book of Magic Spells" or something like that and every Halloween I place it on the Circ Desk and watch the reactions of nosey people who open the cover of the book and hear the very obvious witch's voice say "Have some candy-----Yahhhhaaaaaahhaaaaaaa!" The kids love it and the parents usually jump when the book talks to them.

How big is it?

How much does it cost?

    Buggers! I forgot to look at the details. The "Trunk O' Treat" chest is a fair sized box--perhaps 8 inches high by 10 inches wide. If you buy 3 cards then the price is $10.00--without the purchase of cards $18.00(I'm guessing at the regular price). I've just checked the Hallmark home page but didn't see the box, only the singing Toads.

Is this what you are talking about?

My son brought this home the other day from the mall and I didn't even notice it at the time, but now that you mention it, it does have a Karloff-ish voice.

    Yep, that's the one. The inside of the chest is even more interesting--there's a lovely eyeball in there at the bottom of the chest looking up at you. The clerk told me "Oh, no need to rush in buying that---we'll have lots left over." Persnonally, I think they'll get stuck with the singing Toads.
