Genevieve Ruffles, Julian Hijinks, and Maxwell McSpooky are the character names from Hallmark’s My Pet Ghost, a Halloween product line that features “frightening ghosts” that have been captured in a bottle. To make the pet ghosts appear and to hear one of three spooky sounds, you press the top of the bottle’s stopper. Hallmark says that they “have been happily haunting since 1602 and are ready to make an appearance in your home.” On a recent trip to Santa Cruz, California, I spotted a display of them at CVS (images). You can check out one of the ghosts appearing in the bottle and speaking in this video uploaded by Shari G.
