    Comments about Spirit Halloween 4.5 ft Peek a Boo Penny Animatronics - Decorations:

    I bought Penny two years ago and she has brought *so* many scares since then. I've had trick-or-treaters get scared by her, find their friends, and send them up to my door so she could scare them too! I have her activated with the foot-pad that I hide under a mat.

    The only (minor) issue I've had is that the adapter for the plug stopped working. But as long as I keep an eye on the batteries and have replacements close at hand, then she keeps on scaring.

    AWESOME prop!

    I love penny, 2nd one I bought, I use her in my outdoor decor. Kids AND adults get scared when her head pops up (kids run, adults do it again). Only con is she wobbles but then again she not meant for outdoors

    Got it pretty quick and put it together, the sound works great but the head will not pop up like it is supposed to. It is still pretty creapy but we wish it would work. We emailed the company and will wait to see how they fix the issue.

      Every year we have a Halloween display in our business and every year our customers cannot wait to see all the moving/speaking characters. We were so excited this year to order Peek a Boo Penny and once she was put together and turned on, we were so glad we ordered her. Unfortunately that was short lived...within 2 days she stopped working. For what this item cost I would have expected to at least been able to have her last through Halloween. We turned her on the night of October 8th, 2016 and she stopped working October 10th, 2016. To say we and our customers are disappointed would be an understatement!!

        A very scary prop. Penny has a quick set up that is not to complicated. Very well detailed and works very well, and she is also pretty durable. Her Pop-Up action is very quick and is sure to scare any guests. (She even scares me sometimes.) Very happy with her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a quick and good scare for their Halloween Party, Haunted House, etc. Amazing decoration. :)

          PEEK- BOO- PENNY was our new addition for our haunted yard. Amongst our other displays, we staged a bedroom where she was with her dead grandpa laying in his coffin bed. Very effective, people too scared to look and avoided the covered step pad. She makes a person scream with surprise! If there's anyone else that loves to celebrate Halloween, she's a wonderful addition.

                  Used with optional footpod, it takes too long for Penny to deploy. She sings her "trick or treat" song every time before deploying. There should be a mode where she deploys immediately when footpod is pressed. This would make it easier to scare unsuspecting victims!

                    Peek a boo penny is a very effective jump scare prop! The only problem I have is she leans a little, so it has to be on a flat surface to be straight at all. But other than that, everything is working perfectly! Motion sensor works great, and is fairly sensitive to sound.... like the description says, everyone will jump when penny's head fly's!

                    I bought this prop last year and her operating during our haunted house but did notice some issues.I worked on the issues this year and was hoping for the best.......not much improvement. Quality control is evident....it lacks this as some of the Penny props I've seen are good and others, like mine, were poorly built. The sensor works 25% of the time, even in well lit areas. Operating with a switch in silent mode is the best way but not reliable. Will work properly 3 times in a row and then not work again until I re-adjust wires. Then it'll work again a few more times then it won't. Very inter-mitten. The base is too small causing the prop to want to fall over during every activation, so you need to use wire to help prop it up better. The head is also selective on whether its going to work or not? The head has always popped up 100% but won't return down every 50% of the time or so.

                    I am going to try and re-wire the prop one more time (I have years experience with this) and if it won't respond properly I will add her to the non motion prop pile I guess?

                    Can not say what is good about it. Purchased one got it home put it together and did not work at all, took it back got a second one and put it together and the sound worked but the animatronics did not work. Very disappointed. Now I have to make a third trip back to the store for the same product.

                      While browsing the large props on display at the local Spirit store, I came across one that immediately grabbed my attention (and made me yelp in surprise!). I'm normally not one to get startled by the props, but Peek a Boo Penny put my steel nerves to the test. When I first saw Penny, she was displayed innocently near the large cardboard house showcase; as soon as I got within 6' of her, she started singing that measured, unnerving song. I could see a bit of her skeletal face behind her hands, and I was expecting that her hands would drop or open to reveal the terror behind. Boy, was I wrong! Her head sprung up at such speed that I flailed back! Sadly, the display was the only one the store had, so I did not buy her and purchased the Pumpkin Guardian of the Grave instead (I'll leave a review on that, too). Long story short, Pumpkin Guardian's sound activation-only system was sporadic, and I decided to search for Penny at another Spirit location. I had to visit two other stores before I found her.

                      Assembly was very easy and clear. The middle pole locks permanently, so you may have to store her standing up or lying down. I noticed that the arms on my Penny, even after being snapped into place, were about a ½" lower than the store demo's arms, so they didn't cover her face as much. A ½" sounds minor, but it makes a big difference. Her hair was a bit thin in places, so I had to apply some wig wefts to hide the thin areas. I also extended her hairline so that the it frames her face and falls closer to her cheeks, as her hands don't conceal her face on the sides. People can now approach Penny from the side without seeing her skeletal features. My Penny also had a few small oil stains on her dress upon opening the box, most likely from the factory. Nothing major.

                      The details are very good on Penny, from the lace cuffs to the hair bows. It says she's sound and motion activated, but she seems more sensitive to motion rather than sound (I don't know where the listening device is, but her motion sensor is on her left hand).

                      Even when I run her through test runs, and I now know how her head springs up, she is still startling. The pop-up action is loud in itself, and she screams when it happens. Penny wobbles only slightly when her head springs, but the base seems sturdy enough. I have her running on four AA batteries.

                      Overall, she's a great prop at a wonderful price. She's large enough to be intimidating, yet small enough to tuck safely into a corner for storage. She'll be a great trick-or-treater greeter! The recording is loud and clear, You'll definitely get your money's worth – and scares – with Peek a Book Penny.

                      While browsing the large props on display at the local Spirit store, I came across one that immediately grabbed my attention (and made me yelp in surprise!). I'm normally not one to get startled by the props, but Peek a Boo Penny put my steel nerves to the test. When I first saw Penny, she was displayed innocently near the large cardboard house showcase; as soon as I got within 6' of her, she started singing that measured, unnerving song. I could see a bit of her skeletal face behind her hands, and I was expecting that her hands would drop or open to reveal the terror behind. Boy, was I wrong! Her head sprung up at such speed that I flailed back! Sadly, the display was the only one the store had, so I did not buy her and purchased the Pumpkin Guardian of the Grave instead (I'll leave a review on that, too). Long story short, Pumpkin Guardian's sound activation-only system was sporadic, and I decided to search for Penny at another Spirit location. I had to visit two other stores before I found her.

                              I scared grown men with her. She's great. Highly recommend her to anyone who loves Halloween. I added her to my collection last year and she was the hit of the party.
