The Best Halloween Kids Toys from Etsy (2021)

I love spending hours getting lost down the Etsy rabbit hole searching for the best handmade toys for kids. It's my favourite form of window shopping and I come across so many awesome quality products and stores. This post includes the best Halloween toys for kids I've found on Etsy this year.

Many parents are starting to create a boo basket tradition with their children each Halloween, similar to Christmas Eve boxes and Easter baskets. A boo basket is a bucket, box or basket full of Halloween treats for kids which typically includes candy, toys, books, movies and pyjamas to use throughout October in the lead up to Halloween. These toys would all be great additions to a boo basket for kids.


This list includes Etsy stores from all over the world. Please take note of the location and delivery times for the stores mentioned before purchasing to ensure items will arrive prior to Halloween. Most toys featured in this post are recommended for children 3+ but please check individual item listings for age recommendations. 


We're huge fans of wooden toys because they're usually open ended as well as great quality that will last for years. These wooden Halloween toys can be used for stacking or imaginary play and will be loved by toddlers through to school kids for many years.

Peg dolls are a great resource for imaginary play as well as language and social skill development. Use them in a normal doll house to transform it into a haunted house, or on their own for some spooky play. They'd also be great to give out as Halloween party favours.
