      Comments about Spirit Poppin Goblin Decoration:

      I got this prop close to 3 year ago on sale. I am glad I bought it. My toddler absolutely love this product. He loves going outside to see how close he can get to the product before the it activate. Not to mention it also always startle the trick o treater that come to my house. They never suspect the pumpkin of being more than an average pumpkin, making the item serve it purpose well.

      Repairing this if it locks up

            Comments about Spirit Poppin Goblin Decoration:

            If your goblin stops working, it MIGHT be fixable if you are handy. Mine locked up with a loud clicking noise. What I discovered was that wires were not properly secured with tie wraps, and in some cases, the goblin's clothing could be caught in the mechanism. If the unit locks up,take it apart, it's fairly easy, and verify that all the wires are properly secure and the clothing is out of the track. Then plug in and give the mechanism a gentle push, it should then finish the cycle. Tie wrap any loose wires,paying attention to how they are routed, secure the goblin's clothing, verify operation and put it back together.

              The product is great fun, but I had received a few defective ones, so while Spirit was great to return and replace them at no cost, it is still concerning. The nose of the goblin sometimes gets caught on the pumpkin and the motor isn't the most reliable. Good product though.

                  Bought the product on sale at a store, it worked for about an hour during halloween. Then it wouldn't retract back into the pumpkin, the motor wouldn't stop grinding and now the goblin won't go down either. I am very disappointed and will probably not buy from Spirit anymore (since last year I bought a fog machine that was also faulty). If I could give this 0 stars I would.

                      Began decorating my yard ths weekend and opened poppin globlin ,plugged in and found that the goblin comes out but does not retract back in. the motor keeps running and it is stuck. It also does not make any noise like it is supposed. Called spirit Halloween and was informed that last week was deadline for returns. Was given name easewell management ltd as manufacturer. Was told to surf the web for phone # because they don't have it. I did --- It's in hong kong. I guess I'm out of luck. What a waste of money.

                          We had planned to use this for part of our Halloween display. The motor now keeps running but nothing happens. So that item was left on our coffee table as an expensive paperweight.

                            I read the one review that had problems with their unit(s). Mine worked just fine right out of the box. True, you DO need to put on a flat, smooth surface so when it activates, there is enough room for it to activate and run properly. Lights up fine. Decent size. Pumpkin measures about 27" high when non-activating. All in all, it's a FUN product and now is a GREAT addition to my ever expanding collection!

                            Maybe some day they'll make a larger size? Although if it were too big, it might be more difficult to ship or to store, unless storage space is not an issue for you.

                            Still, it would be pretty COOL!

                            The poppin'Goblin prop is a must buy prop.Perfect for anything you need it for including trick or treating and halloween parties.The picture shows a goblin popping up from behind the jack'o'lantern don't expect what you see in the picture expect somthing even better.It looks and works better than online it looks better in person and it jumps up faster than it does inside spirit halloween. It does not pop up from behind the pumpkin it litterly pops out from the inside of the pumkin.There is a door in the back of the pumkin that starts to slowly open up when the goblin is activated.The goblin's base is attached to the door.The goblin pops up fast after he is done speaking and after the base is done pushing the door open.The base stops pushing the door open as soon as the goblin is done speaking.When the goblin lights up there is a light inside the pumpkin which makes the pumpkin light up white.There are also lights in the goblin's eyes wich are red and a white one inside the stem of the pumpkin.Before he pops up he speaks and after he pops up he laughs.This is a must buy prop that is well worth the price!

                              This is my 1st animatronic piece I seen in spirit and had to have it. Came pre-assembled...great. Volume is a good level and the laugh from the gobblin is great. Lights up really nice too.

                                This decoration is my personal favorite of Spirit's "Jumping" decorations. I purchased it along with a Foot Pad activator the day my local Spirit store opened. He comes completely assembled in his box, all you have to do is plug him in. At first when I saw this decoration on the website I thought he just popped up from behind the pumpkin, but it's even better than that; he literally comes out from inside the illuminated pumpkin and jumps up! The sensor is pretty sensetive, so it was a good idea for me to buy a Foot Pad as well (Its jack being right beside the adapter jack on the bottom back of the pumpkin). The ONLY con I have with this product is that he is a little smaller than he looks on the picture, but that worked out well for me as he fits better where I ended up putting him. The pumpkin (Which stays illuminated as long as it's plugged in) is made of a somewhat hard plastic, and the goblin feels like he is made of a very thick latex. The clothes feel like a slightly thin, stretchy fabric, and the body structure seems to be pretty sturdy. This would work great for giving trick or treaters a real scare, or just for some cute fun at a Halloween party. Overall, I felt this purchase was well worth the price.
