Up until last week, I had no idea about these cute little, black and white, skeleton animals which are called Skelanimals. I was at Target (I know, I am a Target-oholic) and I saw this cute coffin (shown in the second image) with an owl image on it. This candy box had a website address, so I got home and did some digging. What did I find?

"Skelanimals are adorable little animals who have met an untimely end-mostly due to their own reckless and ill-advised behavior. They are looking for a home with that special someone to care for and love them, but not just anyone. They like people who have a warm heart, after all they're just bones. They need you to keep them warm and cozy. Snuggling is their favorite thing to do, especially when you watch a scary movie."

That character on the candy container is Oliver, the owl. "Oliver is the most knowledgeable of the Skelanimals. They go to him for information but they are also aware that he likes to play tricks." Don't you love Oliver in his pirate outfit (shown in first picture)?

There are more products, like cocktail napkins, party paper plates, lunch boxes, party cups, photo frames, plush toys and wallets etc which are available on their online shop and there some which are exclusively available at Target. You can browse through Target lookbook here. Oh, and there are some Skelanimals M&Ms for Halloween.
