Comments about Spirit Halloween 26 in Helga Toad Gutter with Tombstone - Decorations:
I do like it. Would prefer plug in back but it is covered OK. The moss and ground cover does come off a lot.

Awesome for any Cemetary

About Me High-end Shopper
We will set Helga up for the third year. She is still working and going strong. We may have to add more petemoss and leaves. After one year being outside it doesn't look so hot.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Midrange Shopper
The Helga Toad Gutter prop was a big hit at my cemetery scene at the campground, and for our Halloween party. The head is life sized, which is a plus considering how a lot of props these days are much smaller for some reason. The prop has a very sensitive motion detector with a wide range, and the sensor can be adjusted. The price might be a little on the higher side, but the prop is well made.
LOVE LOVE LOVE my Helga

About Me Budget Shopper
Used this outside in our graveyard and she was great! No need for a step sensor she was ready to start the night. People just had to walk past her and she would go off. Lot's of people enjoyed her along with all the other Spirit of Halloween animatronics I have. LOVE Spirit of Halloween they are my number one shopping place for Halloween decorations!
from Clayton, NC
Helga was certainly an attention getter in our Halloween set up this past year. Everyone would stop and check her out and we had several motion decorations set up throughout the yard and driveway. She's very unique and realistic. Only thing i would change with her is making her eyes light up.
very good buy
i used it outdoors and did a good job scaring the trick or treaters, on Halloween it was raining pretty good out and held up to the elements, just which the grave stone was more legible to see the name i had to darken it in with a permit marker. But on a great note for your customer service i bought this online and started to set it up before Halloween and the external speaker would not work so i took it to one of your stores in my area to exchange for another one and they did i was so happy about that.

This was the 2nd year using Helga Toadgutter, she gets alot of attention in my front yard cemetery, good loud audio with volume control, hand moves the head from side to side. I run her on continuous mode and I aim a red strobe light at her from one side and a green strobe light from the opposite side. Good prop to have.
best sensor yet
from Newburgh, Indiana
Pros: Best sensor yet on any item for Halloween I have purchased from any retailer.Adjustable volume so loud enough for outdoors but can be decreased for indoor use.Face & arm fairly realistic looking.Cons:Motor covered by gauze thus can't be used outside even if only might sprinkle lightly as could short circuit, could have been covered by plastic flap to fix problem.The base looks more like a rock than dirt of crave.Headstone was cheap in appearance but quick coat of Rust-o-leum Stone paint (be sure it's type that won't melt the styrofoam) fixed problem.
Amazing and Spooky Decoration!
By Ethan Conlin
About Me Classic, Trendy
Received this Decoration and was Very Pleased! A Very Quick Set-Up, maybe about 10-15 minutes. Very realistic looking! I also LOVE that her Tombstone says her name on it, and can come out of her base to be just a Single Tombstone! Spooky Decoration! I would recommend her to any Halloween fan or Collector! :)
Very creepy cool!

We added this to our graveyard scene. The guests of our Halloween party and Trick-or- treaters complimented this decoration the most out of all of our unique graveyard items.
Awesome addition to my graveyard!
from Plymouth Meeting PA
We used this prop in our graveyard and set it up right next to the real coffin I have. Every year my yard gets better and better.
Worth what I paid!
I got this for a really good price with all the discounts back in August and it was well worth it. Worked all night long on Halloween, sensors worked, I lit it with my own lights so that wasn't an issue. Hope when I pull her out next year she keeps on working!

Helga was an awesome addition to our display! She was the hit of the scene!
from Union County, NJ
This was a new purchase for my Halloween graveyard & it was a total hit! The quality is great, it's easy to put together, has its own volume control, voice is clear, and the motion sensor works great...even as it got darker later on. Parents & kids loved this prop & people were talking about it all over the neighborhood. The only thing I would recommend if they make an upgraded version is to maybe add a little eerie lighting. I had a strobe light on it so it worked well. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, especially if you have a graveyard theme.

Great in a grave yard.
By Michael Clark
from White City, OR
She works wonders and I am happy I bought it last week. My favorite part was testing her outside my front door and seeing people get scared.
from mullica hill, NJ
Helga is a lot of fun I have her in front of my house, only problem is sometimes she just won't shut up ( like a real woman? ) I even shut her off and she keeps talking. I have to unplug her at times. She would be better with a few more sayings, but overall she is good for Halloween
Everyone loves Helga

About Me Halloween Fanatic
So far everyone loves Helga. Easy set-up. The base could have been of better quality, but they did not skimp on anything else. The volume control is a plus. I currently have her outside in my yard haunt, so I'll either have to cover her or bring it inside if it starts to rain (if it ever rains again in California).I'm not sure if the eye is supposed to light up. Mine does not, but I'm not a huge fan of light up eyes, so it's not an issue.
Good indoor prop

Creepy look and voice to match
from Alameda CA
I saw this in the store and just had to have it. When it arrived I was disappointed to find the head attached facing sideways rather than forward. I unscrewed it and screwed her head on the right way. It seems fine now, just a pain to have to do this. Other than that it works great and looks good. I would have given it 4 stars if it was assembled correctly.

Very cool prop
from Hazleton Area, PA
Very simple assembly. Just put the arm on the base, connect the wire from the arm to the base, plug in the adaptor and put the tombstone on. Very cool prop. Has the option to work with the built in motion sensor, try me pad, or just run continuously. Also has volume adjust which is nice. Control pannel is awkwardly placed in the front but is hidden nicely. Only issue is my tombstone had some chips in it showing the bright white foam underneath, but a sharpie should cover that well.

Awesome grave prop
from Colorado Springs, CO
Bought this the day it came to my store and I LOVE it. The phrases are good, and the sensor I have found works excellent in the dark (close by). The head is realistic looking and the base looks good, except for the fact that it is plastic. The tombstone was hard to install at first, but there is a second hole you have to move the peg into to get it to work. All in all, this is a great prop.
