When my son was a toddler we couldn’t take him to our local Kroger around Halloween because they had this super-scary life-sized zombie thing at the front of the aisles that would make him scream and cry.
Let’s face it. some Halloween stuff is too scary for little kids. At the same time, youngsters are fascinated by all the Halloween excitement. Here are nine fun Halloween DVDs for the five-and-under set that won’t make them worry about what’s hiding in the closet.
