          Comments about Spirit Animated Rising Reaper With Pumpkin:

          this is an awesome product the only reason i am not giving it a 5 star rating is because it is poorly made for the money. The shoulders are bendable wire and you have to get them just right for it not to fall over and work properly also the hood was sewn on twisted so it would not hang properly i had to remove the hood from the forehead and untwist the fabric and straighten the wire to get it to look right but after that was done it was good.
          I have a similar less expensive item that is more durable.
          I would only recommend this product to a friend with caution.

            The mechanism that makes the animatronic go up and down is a simple antenna such as a retractable one on a vehicle and if messed with, such as by kids on halloween, will easliy bend and then it will be unusable.

                I love this guy! He's so great and he's really scary! And I don't get why people had a hard time putting it together, because I put it together easily and I'm a 13 year old girl. I don't know, maybe they didn't read the instructions right. But this product works really well! It's sensitive, realistic (especially in the dark), loud, SUPER creepy, and such a surprise!! It scared my whole family, so I bet I could scare my friends :) I'm using it outside in front of the "graveyard" with some other scary decorations and I'll blend it in with logs and pumpkins. This is definitely a great addition to my Halloween party :)

                (PS if you're using it indoors, I recommend using foam to cover the speakers!)

                    We have THE Haunted House in our little town of 7000 people. The kids wait every year to see what we are going to scare them with. I have been very happy with most of my Spirit purchases, and would have been with this one too if it had been a little more sturdy in the wiring and mechanics. The first year, it worked fine, but the 2nd year we set it up and the wiring had fallen off where it was supposed to be soldered. My husband, who is very handy, couldn't re-attach the wiring and get it working again. He called the company, but received no answer. It is truly a great idea, realistic and scary, but needs some fine-tuning on the animatronics. We set it up on our front porch at the top of the stairs. Just like a [@] greeter!! LOL!

                      This was one of the more poorly manufactured items we have ordered from Spirit! Pre-assembled items did not line-up as they should have. Requires additional rigging to prevent tipping over. Motor quit working after 3 days of operation (could not lift the head & body). I do admit it was Scary the first day of operation (once we got it all assembled and working correctly) but as time went on, it started malfunctioning and then finally gave out all together...Where do I get a refund?

                            i bought this product and the pole that raises and lowers the product did not lower the product. waiting on another pole. regardless i would keep this bc it really would scare any kid especially in the dark.

                                  The sound is nice and loud so it gives a great effect outdoors. It was fairly easy to put together. Best animated Halloween prop I have ever purchased. Everyone loves it!!!

                                    Overall great prop, but the plastic posts are very fragile. In simply moving it around, the main plastic post twisted out and one of the flanges broke. This is a new prop for me and I hate it when things break too easily. It still works, but it needs to be handled like a crystal vase to avoid breakage...

                                        Highly recommended! This was the centerpiece of my graveyard scene at my halloween party last year and I couldn't stop laughing from all the guests he scared throughout the night. I hid him with only the jack o' lantern peering out. It scared the hell out of all my party guests. The sound activation is wonderfully sensitive - so anyone who gets within 1-2 feet of him gets a good scare and the scary sound and voice is loud enough for all in the room to hear. The only problem is that he takes up a lot of battery juice and any sound pretty much sets him off. I highly recommend getting the plug adapter and the footpad activator that goes with him - otherwise you will have to change his battery at least two or three times during the night.

                                        If you think he is cute in the picture , he is not ! He looks scary , and I love that about him ! The skull looks real and my kids were spooked out . I can't wait for Halloween to scare the kids ! The only reason I gave this product a 4 star is because my husband had taken time to assemble the small pieces . Once he started to work , the slightest sound sets him off ...OOOOHHH!

                                            This prop is awesome! It sets up pretty easily with the directions. The first time I tried it, the dog ran out of the room and the cats scattered. A bit loud for indoors but put a piece of foam over the opening and it works much better. For outdoors, I would definately bring in at night or if it rains. Keeping it out of the weather is my suggestion. But all in all, its a great prop for the price and I can't wait to scare all my party guests and trick or treaters.
                                            Well worth the money and would highly recommend it. Happy Halloween everyone!!
