There are parents who take there kids trick-or-treating, and then there are Cooper's parents, who built him the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters with a push cart and put together a costume for him to match it. It only makes sense because last year the toddler rolled around the neighborhood demanding treats behind the wheel of a "custom built" DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future.

While last year's cardboard DeLorean push cart was thought of off-the-cuff, Cooper's parents, Cory and Jeremy, held a brainstorming session this year to recall things they loved as children in the 1980s that could be made into a Halloween costume. That's how they landed on Ghostbusters and the Ecto-1.

The push cart version of the Cadillac-based ghost mobile also is made of cardboard boxes, according to Cooper's parent's website, RottenKitten Studio, but also plastic salsa cups from Mexican take-out, empty soda bottles, LEDs, paint and, of course, a bunch of tape. This Ecto-1 push cart resembles the real one, and Cooper's costume really does tie the whole thing together, especially when he's got the ghost trap ready to throw.

      Wow, that's really cool. All the kids will be jealous of his costume! If that kid showed up at my door, he'd get a whole bag of candy and the parents would get some wine/beer.

      He's not even doing it for the kid, the kid is just the excuse to do it.

        That's the best part about having kids! You get to re-live your childhood vicariously through them.

      I think Cooper's parents have a little too much free time on their hands, although I have to admit it's pretty cute...
