  • in my opinion, yes thats to young...theyre to young to know what theyre doing, to young for the candy...
    yaa, dress her up and what not...but to take JUST her out trick or treating...kinda weird....

    i didnt take my daughter til she was 3..and even then it was just to the local mall...this year (shes 6) i think were gonna do a few houses too..

  • I took him to a couple houses at 7 months. Just for them to see his suit.

    The next year at 19 months, he could do it. He walked to the doors, knocked, said Trick or treat, held out his pumpkin and then said thank you for his candy. He even picked out his suit and was super excited.
