Have A Snoopy Halloween With These Peanuts Collectibles

I remember those wonderful fall days of my childhood filled with the smells and sounds of autumn.   The trees wearing their new coats of blazing color, the air crisp and cool.  Coming home to the smell of freshly baked apple pie.

The most exciting thing about fall was without a doubt Halloween.  We always looked forward to picking out a costume and getting ready to go trick or treating.  During this time of anticipation we always settled down one night in front of the television to watch Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

Those lovable Peanuts holiday cartoons have a become a beloved part of my childhood memories.  The characters indeliably etched into my mind are as warm and familiar as any childhood friend.  Who could forget Linus convincing Sally to skip tricks or treats and wait for the Great Pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.  And Snoopy sneaking out across the dark forest to battle the Red Baron atop his doghouse. 

Good ol Charlie Brown who exclaims after every house "I got a rock".  And then later at the party Lucy uses Charlie Brown's head to diagram her Jack O'Lantern.  Later Snoopy exacts revenge for Charlie by kissing Lucy while bobbing for apples, leading her to exclaim "Aack I've been kissed by a dog!"

Just seeing the cartoon on even today brings back all those childhood memories.  The sights, the smells and your family all gathered together. 

If you have some of these same childhood memories then you will enjoy some of these great Peanuts collectible and decorating items.  Bring the past into your home with some of these wonderful memories.

It's the Great Pumpkin Dept 56 Figurine

Recall that famous pumpkin patch scene between Linus and Sally with this Department 56 Figurine.  Figurine lights up to show Snoopy silhouetted against the moon.  Linus and Sally sit amongst the pumpkins as they wait for the Great Pumpkin.

 I was delighted when I stumbled across this adorable Madame Alexander It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Doll Set. Charlie Browns and Snoopy come together. Snoopy is wearing his Red Baron outfit. Madame Alexander dolls are known for their quality and collectability.


This Snoopy will delight young and old alike.  Snoopy dances to the tune Linus and Lucy.  He is dressed in his Skeleton Costume.   
I love this Department 56 Peanuts Haunted House Collectible. This is a retired piece and includes 5 pieces.  House lights up. Comes with Sally bobbing for apples, Linus and his blanket, Lucy, Spooky tree full of ghosts and a Snoopy Scarecrow sits beside the house. This is a great find for any Peanuts collector.
We hope you will find a Peanuts collectible that will bring childhood memories into your home.  And may the Great Pumpkin smile upon you.
