Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a unique pumpkin that delivers a special message of tolerance and kindness that is just right for fall…and any time of the year!
- Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the book The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, in which he is shunned by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day.
- The success of The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin has led to the creation of a series of Spookley books and a #1 app for iTunes and Android, as well as a Spookley movie that airs on the Disney Channel and in movie theaters across the country every fall.
- Spookley is now a featured attraction at a growing network of pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and fall festivals across North America
Spookley is the â€œOfficial Spokes-Pumpkinâ€ for National Bullying Prevention Month in October through a partnership with PACERâ€™s National Bullying Prevention Center.
Demarest Farm is delighted to be partnering with Spookley, PACER and farms across the country to raise awareness for bullying prevention.
