I had the gypsy fortune teller up in my home for the halloween season. My whole family loved it and so did anyone who saw it. I definitely recommend to anyone who is thinking about the fortune teller. It was pretty easy to put together and very light weight.

Great prop worth taking time to assemble
By SpikeVerified Reviewer from Orlando, Floirda on 10/27/2014
Pros:
Authentic Looking, High Quality, Scary
Cons:
Long Tedious Assembly
Best Uses:
Just For Fun, Spooky Atmosphere, Trick Or Treating
Describe Yourself:
Conservative
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very tough to assemble, but worth it in the end. I had seen many of these hacked together by uncaring staff at the Spirit stores and was dedicated to do a quality build. I succeeded.

As others mentioned, the superstructure is built from smaller parts. Brackets require many screws and none of the holes are pre-drilled. The screws are flat and don't have points as they are meant to grip the metal parts.

I stripped 5 small screw drivers assembling this and ended up with a huge blister on my thumb. If you have a battery powered screwdriver with a small bit, it would make assembly easier.

I love this and took the time to make sure that things went together well.

Awesome prop. Pain in the butt to build.

It truly is a really neat prop. It is a huge hit in my house. The only con is putting it together. It has about 100 TINY screws that are a pain, I did get some construction tips from the Spirit employee which helped a lot.. Still took over 3 hours to get together! Once you get it together., leave it together (even to store)

Pain to put together, limited sayings
By KakuVerified Reviewer from NWArgh on 9/25/2013
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First of all, this thing is a huge pain to put together. You will NEVER want to take it apart, if you could even get it apart. There are 88 tiny little screws for the frame, and 6 more for attachments. These screws do not fit a standard screwdriver, and are just -this- much too big for the holes they're supposed to go into - they bite into the plastic connectors but are very hard to tighten. Once assembled (2.5 hours later with 2 of us building) it is pretty sturdy. Wish it had been made with the push-button metal rods instead of like this - the price could have supported that easily.

Once together, she looks pretty cool. That head-spin and lighting change that sold me on the item in the first place look just as good in person. Unfortunately, she only says two things - one triggered by the sensor to get your attention and one fortune! For the price, that's not good. She is going to get old fast, I think.

It is cool to look at but not worth the price for labor needed to assemble and disassemble. Over 88 screws to assemble. Telescopic design would have been better. I recommend only if you have a place to store completely assembled.

GREAT Prop, but horrible assembly!

The prop is really cool. Remeinded me of the move "Big" with Tom Hanks. There were two sets of assembly instructions, both of which were completely wrong. Not to mention, there are literally over a 100 screws. Cannot image the average person being able to put this thing together.

IT is very cool, the first time you use it. but it has only one phrase and it is not very interactive. I guess the mouth is supposed to move, but the head just shake with the mouth movement. Took forever to build, but worth it.

Great product, poor instructions

Once it is all put together, the misfortune teller booth is great! It is actually better than I thought it would be and I'm very happy with it. My biggest gripe is the instructions, first there were two sets and with one of them saying that it was the correct version. The process is long to put it together but in the end I'm very happy with the product and look forward to having it for our annual halloween party. It's new, very different and fun.

The Wise and All-knowing Madame Morbida
By CCDalekVerified Reviewer from Arden Hills, MN on 9/12/2013
Pros:
Authentic Looking, Fits Well, Lots of Fun, Unique
Best Uses:
Halloween Parties, Home Haunts, Just For Fun, Trick Or Treating
Describe Yourself:
Conservative, Trendy
Was this a gift?:
No
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just purchased this product today, and let me just say this... It doesn't get any better than Madame Morbida! Ever since I first saw her on the preview, I was just awestruck. I originally thought the booth she was in was just a cardboard display to set the scene for the picture, but now I know it actually is included. The booth is a high quality, well-detailed cloth, and it goes over a series of very durable metal poles (Once you have them assembled). Her head and hands are made of a really durable foam filled latex, and are topped with plastic jewelry and earrings. The clothing is made of fine fabrics, and the torso is glued to a thick, heavy duty wood platform that connects to the metal booth. She works great and looks (And acts) just like a real Gypsy would (Luring people in and telling their fortune or in her case, misfortune). The detail on both sides of the face is also really impressive. The first side has realistic, non-lighted eyes and a moving mouth with real-looking teeth, and the other side has great creepy details, light up eyes, and a moving mouth that will scare almost anyone. I also really admire how the hat and hair are on the center of the 2 faces of the Gypsy, making it look realistic and authentic on both sides. The only con that I can see after buying her and seeing her in person, is that the assembly is quite difficult. It took me almost an hour to get her fully set up and working. I would say the hardest part about it is screwing in all 88 screws to secure the frame (I know, it sounds like a real pain and it is). But as I said, other than that she is a GREAT product and an attractive piece to all ages.

Great new animatronic for 2013

Describe Yourself:

Was this a gift?:

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I do not own this product (yet) but have built 3 of these for store displays. You must follow the instuctions and ensure all the 88 tiny screws are tight (best to use a drill but don't over drill them). Takes about 1 hour to build (don't rush it) and everything fits well (no need to modify). Once she is built, she is a GREAT attention getter for any room. Is motion or step pad activated.
I would suggest that this is a prop you leave assembled when storing. It would be time comsuming to disassemble and could strip the plastic joiners (to the metal bars) unless you just loosen them. Would suggest that it isn't stored in a cold/damp location since metal bars are not galvanized and could rust over a longer period in time.
Best to be displayed on a flat stable ground.
Prop is very light, so can be moved around very easy. Love it when her head turns and tells you your 'mis-fortune'. Enjoy - I think this will be sold out at all stores since VERY cool and new for 2013.

We just got the prop, even though they are not shipping it out just yet. This prop took over an hour and half to put together. There are over 88 screws to assemble! We got her together, her head would not twist. With alittle fixing it worked. They need to find a better way to put her together and for easier storage because I am not sure where we will put her in the off season.
