October News and Events

The temperature is dropping and the leaves are changing color. This can only mean one thing…Fall is here! Don’t let the cold, rainy days get you down. We have a lot of great games, crafts, and events that are sure to keep you entertained as we dive head first into Fall.

Oct. 25th – Trick or Treat Bags

Make your own Trick or Treat Bag! We will provide construction paper, markers, pencils, and crayons for children to make their own unique treat bag just in time for Halloween.


Halloween is a major tradition here in Fairhaven. Most businesses decorate their shops and welcome trick-or-treaters with prizes or treats. So, get dressed up and come to Fairhaven on Halloween from 3pm – 6pm. You should look for posters in the windows of participating businesses, which won’t be hard to find as this day attracts hundreds of ghouls, ghosts and other creatures to the neighborhood. We look forward to seeing all the great costumes this year!

Need help putting together the perfect costume? Come shop our excellent selection of costumes and dress up accessories. We carry a lot of costumes and accessories that are Made in the USA or Canada, so you can feel good about buying local this Halloween. We’re sure to have something that will inspire you to get creative with this years outfit.

Fall Crafts and Games

We have a fantastic selection of crafts and games specially curated for Fall. Come check our display in the front of the store for some of the best seasonal items we have to offer.

Try your hand at Shaky Manor from Blue Orange Games.


From Blue Orange: “Local legend says the house on the corner contains hidden treasures… you find yourself taking a chance and entering to strike it rich, but it isn’t that easy to keep the treasures safe from the creatures that haunt the dusty rooms!

In this game, race to position your Meeple Player and 2 Treasure Chests into the room indicated on the Challenge Card by shaking and tilting your box. Each time you succeed in keeping the treasure safe, you win the card as a point and the player to your right adds a new spooky creature into your box to make the next round harder!”

Another game perfect for fall and Halloween is Monster Match from North Star Games.

Description from North Star Games: “In the town of Sprinkleton, monsters are running rampant and stealing all the donuts.  We need your help! 

Monster Match is the screaming-fast game of catching cute, donut eating, monsters.  Players roll the special “Monster Dice” and then race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled.  How fast can you find a monster with 3 eyes…or 4 arms?  With each monster worth different donut points, do you search for just any matching monster, or do you try to find the monster with the most donuts?

But watch out! Go too fast, you might catch the wrong monsters and lose your donuts!

Get crafty this fall with Wool Pets! Needle felting is the perfect indoor activity for Fall. We have lots of different creatures and designs to chose from. You can create something to add to your costume or something festive to decorate your home. Come see our extensive selection and get crafty!

Puzzles also make for a fun fall activity. We have a nice selection of puzzles right now from Cobble Hill, Madd Capp, and Ravensburger. We’re sure you’ll find something you love!

We also have some new coupons this month for members of the Rewards Club. Check your email for the October Newsletter for these special limited time offers. You must be signed up for the Rewards Club to receive these coupons. They are so secret I can’t even tell you about them in this blog post! Not signed up for the Rewards Club? It’s free! Just tell us you want to sign up next time you’re in the store and you’ll start receiving the monthly newsletter as well as special deals we only offer to our Rewards Club members.

We hope you fall in love with something new this month at Fairhaven Toy Garden. Happy Halloween and we hope to see you soon!
