What parents need to know
What's it about?
Help Buster assemble an alien out of spare parts, then tag along as he visits a planet populated by -- you guessed it -- the aliens you designed! Next, send in the trolls! There's a Cyberchase beauty contest awaiting them, but first you need to line them up by height. Hmm, do antennae count? If you need some inspiration for the Halloween costume of your dreams, take a look at the \"It's My Life\" section to read what other kids will be wearing. Or it might be time to try some face painting: learn how to use face paints to look like a dog, a clown, or ... a pumpkin.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about their favorite Halloween traditions. What do you like best about the holiday? The trick-or-treating? Haunted houses? The candy? The costumes? Parents can also encourage kids to have some imaginative fun by making their own costumes rather than buying one.
