Two-year-old Theo has a BFF -- or at least until Halloween is over. That's because his best friend is a five-foot-tall skeleton.

Theo's mom Abigail Brady says her son found the Halloween decoration down in the basement when they went to check out a broken water heater, and it was "love at first sight".

Theo named the skeleton Benny, after the taxi-driving skeleton in the movie "Halloweentown".

Benny now goes everywhere with Theo and his mom, even in the car for outings and to the grocery story.

Theo and Benny play with toys together and the skeleton sits in his rocking chair as Theo sleeps.

As for their Halloween plans, the Brady family plans on dressing up in "Nightmare Before Christmas" costumes and Benny will be there too -- in a wagon as they trick-or-treat.
