Works well for new props
By PropaholicVerified Reviewer from NY on 10/30/2013
Pros:
Functional
Cons:
Not Backwards Compatible, Not For All Props, Not Fully Compatable, Not Fully Compatible
Best Uses:
New 2013 Props
Describe Yourself:
High End Shopper
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works fine with new 2012 props, but is not compatible with older props that work with try me buttons, even though it has an 1/8" jack connector. So do NOT toss your try me buttons. And Spirit, please do not stop making the try me buttons. There are still many props that only work with them. So, this new pad is not quite universal for older props.

Well i got it for my jumping spider that i also bought from spirit. Works great, could be a little more responsive though. Tested it out on my little sister (10 yrs old); at first i had it covered up and she kept walking around it. I uncovered it when she wasn't looking and when she saw "step here" she stepped on it. After the laughter of her being scared, i asked her why she stepped on it after walking by that very spot and not stepping there before; her reply, " it said "step here" so i did. Dont you know thats what kids do???" Anyways, works better uncovered when dealing with kids haha.

The step pad works great. It works for most props but not all. The way older props that were made four years ago don't work very well. Suggest an alternative.

Awesome!
By Spirit Of Halloween from San Jose, CA on 9/30/2013
Pros:
Easy Use, Good
Cons:
Poor Design, Too Bright
Best Uses:
On Jumping Or Pop Upthing
Describe Yourself:
Creepy
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best product ever!

With an easy step, after simply hooking up the wires to ANY of 2013's animated figures, you can activate a big scare! The best uses are for when you have a prop such as the jumping, lurching or pop up props.

The STEP HERE on the pad is outlined by a neon-green color, that with any bit of light is clearly visible. Also, the pad is not as sensitive as 2012's, 2011's, and so on.

This is a great thing to have and you should consider buying for any of your props.

Not that bad just don't use it in a haunted house it breaks down fast with everyone stepping on it. Great for Halloween partys! Lasts about one or two years if not being used constantly.

Cheap piece of crup
By Clue too from Port st lucie, fl on 7/21/2014
Cons:
Poor Design, Poor Quality
Best Uses:
Just For Fun, Trick Or Treating
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought 2 of these two years ago. They both worked on Halloween night the first year, one worked the next year and now neither work. Considering they were only stepped on less than 50 times, I would have to say these are cheap Chinese crud. Would it really be so difficult to make something that lasts awhile?

Does not work all the time
By ShawnVerified Reviewer from Ohio on 11/2/2013
Cons:
Inconsistent, Poor Quality
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just bought this foot pad to use with the pumpkin nester and Bloody Bags. I tried it on both devices and seen the same issue. Sometimes it worked but most of the time it didn't. I don't know if I'm just unlucky and bought a bad one but other comments I have read show the same issue so my guess is they are not manufactured very well. Oh well

Had two shipped to my home..pre-Halloween gift to myself. I had my Spirit exclusive PinHead animated figure ready to test. First one nada, nothing, zilch, second one fresh from the bag same results! ARGH!!!! Unfortunately too soon for the local Spirit stores to open and shipping is half the cost so they're going in the garbage from whence they came!
