Who's Behind PumpkinFACE™?
PumpkinFACE™ ( is a new start-up company created by an American merchandiser and Australian journalist-turned ESL teacher who thought it would be fun to develop a Halloween app linking pumpkin face stencils to cell phones. What began with a simple idea now includes an official website to bring the characters TRICK & TREAT to life in 2013 through a children's e-story, Halloween facts and myths, quotes and contests and an integrated social media approach on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Quozio and Pinterest aimed at keeping families connected.

The PumpkinFACE™ app and website have attracted interest from Australian children's entertainers, The Wiggles, who are currently on their "Taking Off" tour of the US and Canada. The Wiggles have provided a copy of their Wiggly Halloween DVD release as a give-away for one of three contests PumpkinFACE™ is promoting in the lead up to Halloween, fewer than 70 days away. But who is counting? Well, PumpkinFACE™ ( is, of course.
