Cool idea but not well executed..
from Davenport FL
About Me Midrange Shopper
Comments about Spirit Halloween 10 Inch Ghost Writing Book Animatronics - Decorations:
Loved the idea of a magic prop book with a moving feather quill. The downside is the mechanics inside are loud when moving and the quill only goes around in the same circle. Ended up repurposing this with my haunted mansioned themed Halloween room and recovered the pages with Leota's spell book pages which came out well with printed pages and spray on adhesive. Overall cool idea but not the best quality. Also had to disconnect the speaker as it was too loud and obnoxious. These Halloween props really need a volume control or disable feature. Ok for the money, but wouldn't buy again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This prop is very spooky indeed. The prop is kinda of loud, but the way the pen and book work hand and hand is amazing and so clever. Another amazing prop from Spirit Halloween!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only problem I have with this product is that my cats try and steal the feathers! Lmao Love this! Such a cool prop.

Love this five stars old one zero stars
from oro valley az
I love my ghost writing book they have really improved the old one is horrible but the new one is so much better
I would buy this again.
This product is very cool but the 2 included feather pens would get lost easily. It comes with a red and black one. I prefer the black one. This item is good

About Me Budget Shopper
This animatronic is a great addition to any haunted house or Halloween party. I love the scary voice and love the movement of the feather. I wish the feather doesn't blow so easily when the wind goes by it though. This is definitely worth the price.

I got this because I had a severe urge to buy a Halloween animatronic so this was the first thing that popped to mind. It arrived a day late, but since there was a severe snow storm, I'll let it slide. Once I put the batteries in and the quill on the top, it looked great! Then I turned it on, and it worked just as great! I absolutely love it! Sadly, the only place I can store it is near the cats and they keep attacking the quills.
Love this fun Halloween animatronic...perfect for a teacher!
from Chicago, IL
I'm a teacher and I'm so excited to bring this book into my haunted classroom next year! Great quality for the price, and I know my students are going to be delighted! I truly love the words of the ghost trapped in the book...it's the feeling every writer has...that there is a story to be told by everyone, just waiting to make its way to the page! Overall great product and a fun addition to the home, classroom or office. Makes a great Halloween gift for a teacher, book lover or writer, too!
I would suggest this
Awesome. It will look great in my witch spell room. Can't wait to display it
I'd buy another one
This is a great item. The kids thought it was real and that the "spirits" could actually write.Thanks for a great table top item.Harry R
I bought this for a haunted my friends and I built and used it in my gothic manor themed room. I was delighted to see people smiling and pointing saying, "look it's writing by itself!"; a centerpiece for the room. Money well spent.
10-Inch Ghost Writing Book Animatronic
Excellent operation & looks!!
Need one for each room.
Was a big hit at the Halloween party.
It's fun to watch
It's fun and exciting. I love the self moving feather pen.
We were really impressed with this. The sound is loud enough and it looks awesome. Gave 4 out of 5 stars due to the price, (this stuff to me is always over priced)
I love this prop! I did modify it though I disconnected the sound, it will be easier to incorporate into my haunt. Would be nice to have the option to turn sound off instead of having to open it and disconnect the wires to the speaker. Would have gladly paid a few extra bucks to have sound on/off feature. But the prop is awesome
Black Feather Missing Magenet
By Donna D
from Davenport, FL
Sad that one Black Feather is broke missing the magenet so it doesn't write. Wanted this item since last year disappointed.

We're thrilled we were able to set you up with a new one to ensure you get the spooky setup you were expecting.

This was a hit at my haunted house party. I had it in the writing desk and whenever people sat in the couch next to it they got spooked . The sound is loud and clear and I like the options for the feathered pen.
The "hit" at our Halloween Party. Works exactly as described. Can't wait to put it out next Halloween season!
Was A Bit Disappointed
from Los Angeles, CA
The description is a bit misleading. I was under the impression it was a 'ghost book' that just had a pen moving around like someone was writing in it. I didn't realize there was a BOOMING voice that went with it. The pen only moves in a CIRCLE and only moves WHILE the book talks at the same times. It's a bit annoying. I just wanted a book with a moving pen. So I have to put tape over the speaker so it's not so loud and keep bumping it so the pen moves. Not ideal. But it looks pretty....
BROKEN and I didn't even use it!
By Caroline G.
I bought it 1 month ago at the store. Tried it 1 month ago just to make sure it worked. Took the batteries out, put it back in the box and store it until TODAY, for HALLOWEEN. Put the batteries in. There is sound, BUT MOTOR OF THE FEATHER PEN DOES NOT WORK!!! It's Halloween TODAY, and this Junk already died BEFORE I could use it. Nice! My kids are so disappointed!! It was their favorite!

Reach out to them at DrZombie@spirithalloween.com, and they will do everything they can to get your pen ghost writing again!
I would buy this item again
from Albuquerque, New Mexico
This product is great! There are a few things that would make this product even better, but they are small things. The pen goes around in a circle, it would be much cooler if the pen would go around the book in a different way to make it look as if it were actually writing. Also, the book is a tad delicate, so be careful! If you plan to have it in a haunted house, do not allow people to handle this prop! The price was a little high, but with the use of one of the many coupons that Spirit offers, you can bring the price down and it is much more reasonable. Bottom line, this is a great product!
I love it!
from North Carolina
I keep my room decorated for Halloween all year and I felt like my bedroom needed this... and I was right! I love hearing it talk in the middle of the night... waking me up. BUT of course when you want a haunted house... voices in the middle of the night aren't gonna bother you! I love it and you guys will continue getting my money :D
Works very well !!! Looks exactly as it did online !!! I would recommend this item !!!
I WOULD RECOMENED THIS 2 MY FRIENDS.
THE WRITING FEATHERS ARE HARD 2 STAND UP. THE MAGNETIC PIECE THAT IS IN THE BOOK IS HEARD 2 LOCATE. O THER THAN THAT I LOVE IT. I WOULD STILL RECOMEND THIS 2 MY FRIENDS DISPITE THE PROBLEM & IT JUST MIGHT B ME.
