Paul Edwick

I see your comment about Halloween for kids and adults all together and the suggestion that no one minds.

Follow social media around end October, and I think there are a lot of people who do mind - and many of them are mainstream parents who want their kids protected from overtly sexual messages until they old enough to handle this for themselves.

Hi Paul, Thank you for your comment. I am not suggesting that consumers don't care about the issue. Rather, I am saying that the way the Halloween industry merchandises its products implies, at least to me, that combining adult and children's product is not a concern for them.
