Comments about Spirit Halloween 2.5 Ft Cerberus Three Headed Dog Animatronics - Decorations:

So this was my second yr with my 3 headed dogs. They are good and different but hard to store and no aux output for the speaker. I liked them as it was different. I prefer to use the step pad instead of the motion sensor. It does cost a bit more but it does work well. I put mine in some shrubs as there is no backend to the animals. its creepy to c the dogs coming out of the bushes and the sound effects was good and all 3 heads move at the same time with lights and fog coming out of their mouth. I would recommend it.

      This Animitronic is so awesome it looks and sounds way better in person and our neighbours loved it when they walked through our haunted house. one problem i had is that when i was assembling it the screw holes were drilled in different places forcing me to drill my own but hopefully that was only with the one i had and it doesnt happen again

      I bought this animatronic a few years ago when it first came out. It is has an awesome look and works great with our other decorations. The only thing I do not like is that it is a front view decoration. We had to build a small dog house for it to hide the fogger and to cover up the back of it as it is only three heads and some cloth to make up the back and cover up the wood frame. However, it was a small price to pay for such a cool looking decoration!

      We built a box for it to look like it's coming out of and put bloody hand prints all over it with fake limbs in front of it, then added a red light to shine on it , they looked deathly and bloody. Love it would definitely buy another one.

      Comments about Spirit Halloween 2.5 Ft Cerberus Three Headed Dog Animatronics - Decorations:

      Pro: wonderfully realistic, realitivly easy to assemble, light weight so can picked up and moved around Cons:motion detector to activate the really cool effects only work if a a light is shining on the sensor, defeats the purpose of hiding the prop in a dark area and have it suddenly turn on in all it's growling ,eye flashing glory for desired jump scares. Over came disappointing aspect by shining a flashlight at sensor from ground level( still looks AWSOME) but victim had to stand directly in front to block light sensor in order to activate. Would rather have a pressure plate that can be placed anywhere near prop that would turn effects on when someone hsteps on it. Really want to hide "him...s?" In the dark!

        This prop is great! This is the second year we used it and still working perfectly. It was easy to put together and worked well (you do need to be gentle with the screws, but so far so good). I worked well with my Fog machine. I used a step pad for this, since it was so much noise and people walking around, I didn't want it going off constantly with the fog. It was a great prop for my haunted house. One of the best Halloween props I've ever purchased.

            This prop is AWESOME! It was easy to put together and worked great out of the box. I also bought a 1000W Fog machine and the step pad for this. I set it up twice. First, I set it up in an unfinished basement closet for our family Halloween party using the step pad. The fog machine was too much for this set up (it took 3 hours for the smoke to clear out from just test-animating it once a few days before the party), so I unhooked the fog machine. It was still awesome in the setup I had. My adult kids & my grandkids loved it! Then, for Halloween, I set it up with the fog machine, but without the step pad. I used 2 Fire & Ice red swirling lights (one on each side) and put it behind a very short fence just inside my garage door. The motion sensor didn't work very well until I accidentally figured out that I could trigger it with my flashlight from 10-15 feet away. I stood beside it for 3 1/2 hours and it was the hit of the neighborhood with kids and parents. Some of the kids were so enamoured with my "puppies" that they almost forgot to collect any of the candy I was handing out before their parents dragged them away. By far the best Halloween prop I've ever purchased.

              Comments about Spirit Halloween 2.5 Ft Cerberus Three Headed Dog Animatronics - Decorations:

              Assembly was fairly easy how ever I did strip one screw head that went in to one of the legs (VERY soft screws they need to use better ones I mean come on soft plastic strips it?!? REALLY). Once together I quickly noticed that I couldn't set it off beyond the end of the middle heads mouth, was very disappointed. Apon further inspection I had a AHHH HA moment! It has a light cell sensor which means if you shine a light on it and your trick or treaters break the light it'll go off, so back to the store I went and bought a LED red Spotlight (How ever hes no longer hidden). Now it triggers every time so long as the light is broken. Its a good prop but really needs to be motion (true motion sensor not a light sensor) or sound activated. I'll give'em 3 stars could be 5 if the screws where higher quality and was motion/sound activated. Its not a bad prop it just requires a bit of playing around to get it to work decently. My garage and yard is slowly becoming like a holloween store and I love it!

              Nice item, but the middle dog head holes drilled wrong as when positioned, dog head turned sideways. Disappointed of course to turn an easy set up to a long set up. I got a drill and bits and corrected manufacturing error. Item works well, but it would be nice to be able to find a connector from the 3 dog head dog pipes to dog machine. Regular PVC pumping Joint and section pipes do not fit. So still trying to work that problem out. The best thing about the purchase is the sales manager at the Holcomb Bridge Rd , Atlanta, Ga store. Very into helping customers and the various Halloween products. He should be given an award or something. I don't remember his name unfortunately.

                Purchased this for a haunted house we made for our grandchildren, works great, I read a review that that hose didn't fit the fog machine. If you pull the sleeve out of the end of the tube, it fits perfectly on the fog machine. I used a pair of needle nosed pliers to do mine. I didn't bother using the screws that came with it to hold the legs in place either, I found those screws too short for the job. Cerbreus works well and after working with the cape to get a better fit, it looks very good.

                  Very nice prop. Only supplies the front half so you need to hide the back in a box or something covering it up. We built a fake rock (out of paper mache) last year to cover the back (which also provided covering the much needed fog machine) and are building a small castle out of foam core this year. If you go into the store (at least here in Alberta) they have a setup of a small castle that is great inspiration. The fog machine is really necessary as it completes the effect. You don't need a big one but just have one that triggers off the prop. The red eyes piercing through the fog is amazing and spooky. Also as one person pointed out the light sensor (as usual) isn't great in low light conditions (what one is?) so on Halloween night you probably want to use a step pad. Construction is okay as the legs are attached to a support board and the top mount fits on it. Like I said, you really need something to hold it up and hide the back end but it could be anything from a converted refrigerator box to a tree with some camouflage. All in all worth the price but always use a coupon to get a deal (Spirit of Halloween almost always has 20% off for one item).

                  Cerberus arrived in good shape. Assembly instructions not too bad. A bit unclear on the cape but figured it out. Only complaint is that the fogger control light doesn't work. The control does work though so all is operating as expected. I will be requesting a replacement on the control so I get exactly what I ordered.

                  Very nice, I like scarring small kids even though it pisses the wife off. Bought the 1000 watt Fog Machine and foot pad for full effect. When I scare a small kids and they turn around and run down the sidewalk I LOVE the parents "REALLY" then the parents bring back for candy...It's HALLOWEEN, I'm sure Cerberus will help, can't wait!!

                  This is a must have! I've seen this on display for 2 years and I wanted to get it. When unboxed, it seems bigger than it was at the store. The fog machine is needed to complete the look.

                  On a side note, treat this property with extreme care. It is fragile. The wood that the heads and legs mount to isn't the strongest material. Take your time while putting this together and while moving the prop.

                    Very good addition. And good, not great for the money.
