Switch Witch Supports FARE & Teal Pumpkin Project

Free Switch Witches for FARE walkers!  We have donated 50 signed Switch Witch packages to FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education – a wonderful non-profit organization which “works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis”.  FARE is using our donated Switch Witches as gift incentives for walking teams to raise more money.  So it’s a win-win! We are so excited that 50 of our little Switch Witches will be visiting new families – and most likely families dealing with food allergies who could maybe use some help from their new Switch Witch!

We at Switch Witch know that it can be super tough during the holidays – like Halloween – when you have a child with food allergies.  Switch Witch is here to help!  While the Teal Pumpkin Project is doing an amazing job to raise awareness about food allergies and allowing kids with allergies to trick-or-treat more safely, there are still many, many homes that will be giving out treats with common allergens in them.  What to do with that candy?!  And how to do it in a way that isn’t sad or difficult for your child who can’t eat them?

Switch Witch!!   After trick-or-treating, kids can pile up a bunch of their candy (including any that they may not be able to eat anyway!) and leave the pile with their Switch Witch.  Then while the kids are asleep, their Switch Witches will magically (wink!wink!) turn the candy piles in to gifts!  Ta Da!

Have You Ordered Your Switch Witch for Halloween?

October 1st is only ten days away!  Why are we mentioning October 1st?!  “What’s the big deal??” you say!  Well….Many little Switch Witches fly to their Halloween Host Homes October 1st! have you ordered your Switch Witch for Halloween?

“Through nighttime skies, they zoom and zip.  Flying high, they float and flip. Switch Witches smile right at the moon, Thrilled to take their October trip”  

I myself can not wait for my child’s Switch Witch to land inside my kids’ bedroom window next week.

“To a window, each Switch Witch soars, Instead of knocking at the doors. Apartments, houses, boats, and farms – They’re great at knowing which is yours.”

So let the fun begin!  My whole family had a blast last October – waking each morning to see if our Switch Witch had moved or played 😉 during the night.  Some mornings my kids woke up to find their Switch Witch camouflaged or in a new Halloween costume.

“Switch Witches love to switch their look, Disguised or hiding in a nook.  Sometimes at night, all on their own, They may goof off or read a book!”

So if you want YOUR child’s Switch Witch to arrive for the start of the Halloween month,  ORDER NOW.

Why Switch Witch Supports Operation Gratitude

Why are Switch Witch and Operation Gratitude such fabulous partners?

Well, let’s start with the amazing mission of the national non-profit Operation Gratitude: “Operation Gratitude seeks to lift spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for Americans to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation”. One of the ways they accomplish their mission is to annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, hygiene products, hand-made items, and personal letters of appreciation to U.S. troops deployed overseas. AMAZING!

….And that’s where Switch Witch swoops in to partner and support! At Halloween time, when all the little Switch Witches have done their magic – and parents find themselves with lots of candy on hand, they can ship it directly to Operation Gratitude so a sweet taste of home can be included in the troops’ winter care packages! How perfect is that?! It’s a win-win-win-WIN for everyone involved: kids, parents, switch witches, and the troops!

Plus, as an official sponsor of Operation Gratitude, Switch Witch is donating a portion of every Switch Witch sold to this wonderful organization.

Here are quotes from two grateful troops: (provided by Operation Gratitude Founder, Carolyn Blashek)

“We are overwhelmed with appreciation for the box of candy provided by the Halloween Candy Drive donations. Well done and thank you so much…”

“I’m currently deployed to Afghanistan and just received a tremendously generous package from your organization!! I think perhaps it was the most fun package I’ve received to date! I’ve been hoping that someone would receive Halloween candy soon and I was quite pleased with my luck to be the first! It was hard, but I shared with my co-workers…”

So. Save a shipping box. Save this link for simple instructions about sending your extra candy to Operation Gratitdue. And join our team!

Are Your Kids Ever Scared of Halloween?

Do your kids love the creepy factor of Halloween, or do the scary parts of Halloween – well, scare your little ones?  If your child falls in to the category of “Halloween kinda scares me!” – it can be tricky (ha! no pun intended!) to avoid the creepy factor.  In fact, this dilemma is part of the reason why we at Switch Witch set out to create a children’s Halloween product and tradition that truly feels like it’s for kids!

Year after year I searched for children’s Halloween books that felt age appropriate for young kids, and year after year I was disappointed.  The illustrations were always way too creepy for my toddlers – or even for the first graders I was teaching!  And don’t get me started on witch dolls!  Yikes.  That’s why our original little Switch Witch dolls are adorable and soft and cuddly.

So how do your kids feel about the scarier aspects of Halloween?  Do your kiddos seek out the thrilling cobwebs and goblins, or do they make a face that says: “How dare you let me look at that”?!

Also, have you found other great products out there for Halloween that are sweet or cute – in other words: truly made for young kids!?  We would love to hear about them!
