Fifi Box took to Instagram to share her Halloween ‘mummy fail’.

She was shattered daughter Trixie only got one treat.

She wrote: “Mummy fail. When you’re busy so you don’t get out to trick-or-treat til 7pm and everyone’s closed their gates and run out of lollies so you only get ONE Freddo frog and a stick you picked up off the ground.”

She added another video, “Thankyou to the lovely lady who raced back to her kitchen to find a Freddo frog in her kitchen so this expedition wasn’t a complete fizzer.”

Mum’s soon jumped to her defence praising Fifi for making the effort and creating sweet memories and telling her not to be hard on herself.

  • That’s why we always have a little stash of things in our house – in case people run out or they have things I don’t want my kids to have


  • Sorry if I offend …but the scary thing about this for me is seeing Trixie’s photo all over the internet.
    Fifi you are an adult and it’s fine if you like your image out there but give a thought about your daughter’s ..you have no idea what, where or how images of your daughter are being used. I am not a fan at all of placing photo’s of children on the internet.


  • We don’t go trick or treating, you never know who is behind that door but I do always give the treats out, we have 11 kids come this year, the first 8 were lovely the last 3 were feral little brats hahah


  • We don’t go out trick or treating but there were a few out this year as opposed to last year that was very quiet. Lucky the lady found a Freddo to save the day!


  • Our neighborhood was packed with kids and houses taking part! My nephews got spoiled rotten!!


  • No we didn’t go out trick or treating and it was all quiet in our neighborhood.


  • Come to our town, everyone is starting to get into, which is great in a small town

    • Sounds so delightful – our community loves it too! Such a good community feel.


  • Next tear throw a party at home and skip the trick or treating.


  • Poor Trixie. Fifi was doing well to get out at all after a day at work. I couldn’t be stuffed.


  • No trick or treating for us this year. But there were quite some kids doing it in our neighbourhood.


  • Oh dear ! Lovely lady to help you out x


  • Too busy???? A lesson for next year.


  • I love the concept of trick or treating but we didn’t do it this year – we did however stock up on heaps of lollies for visitors just in case people came knocking! – we have heaps left over.

    Sometimes though I feel that the point of Halloween is missed and it is serious about just getting in early and getting the candy before everyone else arrives!

    Hope her daughter had fun and better luck next year! :)


  • Disappointing for her daughter, but jst another reason o reject trick or treating.


  • I feel for her daughter,so disappointing!
