Oh those gullible children! Last year, when Jimmy Kimmel challenged parents to trick their kids into believing that they ate all of the lil ones' treats, it was no surprise that the tots' reactions weren't subtle. The video of the kids' reactions went viral, and parents everywhere had a blast watching at the lil ones' expense. The gag was so successful that the late-night talk-show host decided to try it again. This year's results are just as fun — and even more endearing when you get to the kids at the end of the clip — as before. Take a look and have a good laugh — chances are your tots would fall for the trick, too!
Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat! Trick-or-treating is the highlight of Halloween for most kids, but will yours be getting some awesome treats in their goodie bags this Halloween? Zillow recently ranked the top 20 cities to trick-or-treat — and the top five neighborhoods in each — based on median home value, walkability, population density, and safety. We're giving a shout-out to the top 10! Did your city make the cut?
Trick-or-treating is hard work — just ask the kids who spent hours running between houses in their neighborhoods on Monday night. But the reward — pound upon pound of candy — makes it all worth while. So when Jimmy Kimmel challenged parents to trick their kids into believing that they ate all of the lil ones' treats, it was no surprise that the tots' reactions weren't subtle. Take a look at how kids took the news — who says parenting isn't full of fun and games?
Trick or treat! In just a few days, the streets will be filled with spooky monsters, adorable baby animals, and lots of little princesses — and they all want one thing: candy. Tots will be canvasing the neighborhood trick or treating for goodies, while mama later gets to go through the Halloween booty and approve all the candy that will be consumed. We think homemade goodies, like cookies and cake pops, are more appealing than store-bought candy, but will you allow your kiddos to eat homemade Halloween treats they collect on their trick-or-treating routes?

Light up the night! Wandering dark streets in search of treats can cause a tot to tumble on uneven pavement or steep steps. Avoid the obstacles by arming your kiddo with a flashlight of his or her own!
