Crawling Cathy might not be able to walk or run, but slow and steady wins this bloody race. Try not to get tripped up over this hideous animated decoration. With decomposed hands and head, this spooky animatronic features light-up eyes and sporadic crawling motion.

Comments about Spirit Halloween 13 Inch Crawling Cathy Animatronics - Decorations:
This worked well and scared everyone who came to our doorstep, but it stopped working after plugging it in this year. The eyes just flash intermittently, but the arms no longer move and it does not make a sound anymore. It was stored properly and setup correctly, but I guess this was just a one-year "rental". Pretty bummed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Broke in 1 hour
from Mahwah Nj
She stopped working after 1 hour. She screams and lights up but her arms stopped moving. Really unfortunate for an expensive prop.
Good idea, poor quality.

About Me Midrange Shopper
I have had her for a couple years, and she looks really cool in my graveyard and works fine. But her hair is really bad and looks nothing like the picture. Also, the jaw has pegs that lock into her mouth, but the jaw is too wide to stay in, so we've had to rig her jaw up with hairties and rubber bands for the past few years to keep the pegs in. The arms are just metal rods with clothes over them, so they look kind of bad, but you can't tell that in my graveyard. Overall, good idea, and could use some improvement.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Could be better
Her face is really cool, but the hair is just a little ball, amd looks really bad, also, the jaw does not stay in the head, I had to put hair ties around the jaw to keep the pegs in place. I also wrapped newspaper around the poles in the arws to make them look more realistic. After all of that, she was a great prop for my cemetary
pretty good and creepy. it arrived with a mechanical defect that my son managed to fix with duck tape. seemed to work well after that and hopefully gave a few trick or treaters a memorable scare.

5 stars! Can't wait to set her up in our zombie yard! Already tried her out and she works perfectly. her arms move in a way where it really looks like she's crawling out of the ground & trying to grab you, she moans and her eyes light up! Love love love this

About Me Budget Shopper
This prop is great. I got it as a gift from my dad. But he accidentally bought it twice. When I got it I. The mail, I was filled with excitement and was not dissappointed
from New York
So I got this thing because it was the first animatronic I ever tested and what made me face my fears (I used to have Automatonophobia). I got it along with Roaming Creepy Bear and Peek A Boo Bear at the clearance sale and they arrived two days early! Yay! I put her together which took me about half an hour. I tried her out and something weird happened, her arms and mouth didn't move. Me and my mom tried to fix it up and did a little bit, but still nothing will move. So we FIGURED OUT WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS and now she works great! But still I'm afraid to turn her on in fear of that she'll break. I do recommend her, but DO NOT velcro her shirt shut, it will make the mechanism not work

a hit in our neighborhood
from Irwinton GA
I bought this last year and I was easily assembled and worked great. It works and sounds exactly like the video.
I recommend this product for anyone to buy
It works great so far and its loud enough to hear the sounds. My dog walked by it and it started moving scared him lol.
Every Halloween I do a yard haunt so I try to add at least one animatronic a year. This time I purchased Crawling Cathy and have been very pleased with it. Very easy to assemble and well worth the price. A unique and worthwhile addition to my collection
By Balloon Lady
from Ferndale, WA
We added this prop to our graveyard last year and she was great. People would walk into the graveyard and she would start grabbing and making noise and scare them. Everyone loved her. We add a couple of new props to our haunt every year. She did not disappoint.
Broke in 2 minutes

About Me High-end Shopper
We have a large display and add 2 pieces every year. This was to be our scare feature and was setup with a hidden step pad near another display. Ran fine the first time, but the 2nd time it was activated, the jaw broke and fell off. The arms still moved and it still made noise, but it lacked the impact without the head movement. Extremely disappointing!

Creepiness Level = HIGH!
By Dawn the Deranged
from Medina, Ohio
This was the perfect addition to my zombie car crash scene that I set up in my annual Halloween display. I had her crawling out from underneath the car. It was creepy perfection. Easy to put together and good sound effects.
Wellllllllll, not a home run BUT!
By Scarey Bogie
from North Collins, NY
Well, she got here on time, all the parts were there, very easily set up, power supply worked ,looked great as a static prop, but one eye would not light and photo cell worked Most of the time, but not always. Placed her with a number of other zombies, some static, some moving to cover shortcomings.
Awesomely Creepy. I would buy this again.
By Zombie Queen
from St. Louis, Missouri
We placed her in our zombie cemetery. She was everyone's favorite zombie. Kept her outside though she was for inside use only. Kept the mechanical parts lubed and the electrical protected from water. She worked all season.

Creepy and worth it
By Scary house mom
from Colorado Springs, CO
Put it in my graveyard by my front door. Scared the jelly beans outta lots of visitors. It also seemed to really like my husband. She would talk to him whenever he was around. Hysterical!!!!
from Glendora, CA
The motion detector works great. Very effective in our haunted garage. The only problem is she tends to leave her designated space after a few cycles, will tape her frame down with duct tape next year so she can't get away !

Worth every cent
from San Antonio
Loud and scary.
By Scary yard!
I used this in a yard display.
It did its job well
from Calgary, AB Canada
Used it for outdoors, we made up a camouflaged cover to prevent the elements to hit the display. It was doing its job well by scaring some kids and some adults. What wasn't great was it was moving out of the cover and wished there was a setting that it would move slower, if there was, it didn't work. But overall, I am happy with the product.
from Cisco, TX
Instructions could have been better, worked great once figured out assembly
from Walnut Creek, CA
Works great ar the side of my entryway
Crawling Cathy is coming to get you

Well made prop
About Me High End Shopper
This is a well made prop by all accounts. The mechanics and motor will hold up- you can tell. I bought this one because I like getting a female prop when I can. So many ghouls and zombies are male. Females are a great addition. Plus unlike the male of this same prop, her eyes are much better. I think we're past the flashing green LED eyes by now right? Cathy's eyes are great, light up eyeballs. The head and arm motion are great and it's great this prop doesn't actually crawl around. The actual crawlers are too much trouble. Best part- constant on setting. Perfect, set it and forget it. I give four out of five stars because getting her dress in place and then getting the prop assembled underneath that is a pain- and you have to put the dress in place first. It actually took me some time to figure out how to install the darn dress properly. But once it's set, Cathy is a winner! Highly recommend.
Scared the pants of my sisters

About Me Love to scare people
Love this thing can't wait for Halloween I ordered it and tested it out and it works great. The only thing that I had problems with was that sometimes it would stop right after it started animation but only after every few cycles so it doesn't really bug me. Its really awesome, keep up the good work Spirit.:-)
