Some families aren't celebrating Halloween this year, some are keeping the fun inside , while others are determined to go outside trick-or-treating, trying to make the most out of this weird year we are somehow living in. I'm part of the last group, because Halloween is my favorite holiday and I'm not ready to let go of it. I'm also in one of the two states which consistently presents low risk when it comes to COVID-19 so we feel comfortable venturing into the outside world with our kids.

However, it doesn't mean that we are not being extremely cautious about grabbing candy from strangers (which, like, TBH, we should always be, pandemic or not), and thankfully both to my husband's entertainment and my peace of mind, there's a tool that works perfectly for this season we are living in.

Enter: Handy Grabs .

Designed for grabbing whatever is slightly beyond arm's length and doing it with humor, Handy Grabs reaches places your hands can't (or don't want to). To make things more fun, Handy Grabs has two little rubber hands to keep things comical. Safe for adults and children to use, it has a 20-inch reach which makes it ideal to grab candy from your neighbors front porch, plop into a bag or bucket and leave outside quarantining until it's safe for kids to grab and enjoy.

I know, it sounds ridiculous, but if we don't make the most out of these crazy times with a good family laugh, I'm going to spiral into despair. Plus we can use these little hands to grab toys from under the couch (where they love living) or grabbing toilet paper from high shelves (where we need to hide from our toddler).
