As with many things in our house, I have no idea where that pail is, but I did get these two supercute ones from the nice people at McDonald's.
The Happy Meal Halloween pails are based on the McDonald ones from the mid-80s, some of which are collector's items on ebay. I fully expect mine to become collector's items as well once they disappear into the black hole that is my home and we find them thirty years from now. The buckets have removable handles you can use as masks and come with Mr. Potato Head stickers, which the kids had fun sticking on. Bonus thrill: I heard Max say "oh-ay-oh" (potato).
McD's is giving away two buckets to five readers—for the kids, for you and your child, for your husband and your child, for your ferret and your child, whoever you please. They're also tossing in a coupon for Apple Dippers. Sweet!
To enter, just leave a comment below about a favorite Halloween memory. One of mine: The Halloween night a couple of years ago when Max was so mesmerized by a skull that lit up on a neighbor's porch, we had to sit there for a half hour.
