Scooby Doo! Halloween Party Pack

It looks like Scooby Doo is looking to enhance his spooky credibility by muscling into the Halloween market with this Party Pack. At first glance it looks like a glorified lucky bag to me.
You do get alot of stuff in this bag. There are some lollys with pumpkin wrappers on them, some gummy eyeballs and small lenticular scenes depicting the gang getting into in various scrapes.
There are also boxes of sweets with various Scooby-Doo characters depicted on them. The sweets inside are red and black. Close, but the colours of Halloween are orange and black.
The most intriguing thing in the pack though, is the bat launcher.
This is a device that launches mini frisbees when you squeeze the bat legs together. The frisbees go a reasonable distance, but may not fly as far when in the hands of a small child as all the power comes from the squeeze. Which is just tough really, stick it in a drawer and get it out when you've got past 30. It'll fly down to the bottom of the garden then.
I even managed to get a snap of a frisbee in flight (which is no mean feat when you are photographer and the launcher).
All in all this is a pretty reasonable pack. It was only four quid and it's packed with stuff that would be great as party favours or passed out to trick-or-treaters. There are minus marks for having the wrong coloured sweets in the boxes though. That's a little bit lazy.
