Lil Nester is a great addition to my halloween collection! Although the eyes break quickly I still think I he is worth it. I did have to buy two because my first one came broken and did not work at all. But my second worked good as new! Even though his eyes wore out like everyone Lil Nester does, he is definitely a great prop and fits well with his dad Pumpkin Nester!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

He is an amazing decoration, would recommend. However the lights in the eyes have a bad wiring job, so they stop lighting up due to this.
It is great my 3 year old son absolutely loved opening it for his birthday Saturday!!

About Me Midrange Shopper
Lil Nester is a great prop and worth the money if you can get it for a good price. The eyes on mine are slowly going out (its a simple fix however) but everything else works great. If you are thinking about getting one, I would say that you should.

Lil Nester review
Well i purchased one early in September from your Charles Town store and had to return it for a refund because on mechanical problems. Then I ordered one online. It cost me more because I could not get the 20% discount like I did at the store. But after about 2 weeks the eyes did not lite up. You all sent me a new Pumpkin head and it seems to be working ok for now.

I would buy it again or other things.
I hung it on my covered porch. My grandkids love it.

I hang nester from my willow tree, with a swirl fire and ice green light and tombstones underneath him that light up and have creaking doors and crows cawing. SO COOL!
Volume control is the key!! The motor is a little louder than I expected but he works great and was easy to assemble..

Looks great but didn't last long....

Was very excited to add to my collection for Halloween last year, however, it stopped working within hours..eyes no longer worked..very little to no swinging. Extremely disappointed.
BEST 2014 PROP
By Halloween Haunter
He's an awesome prop, sadly I had to return him 4 times cause his it was either his eyes didn't light up, his head doesn't turn, or both, my nester's I have today works 100% except his eyes don't light up. and I saw the new video for the new remake lil nester and I even want that one!
One of my Favorite Purchases Absolutely Love Nester !
from irvine ca
Seriously A MUST have. We love pumpkin everything. But you got to get Nester. Make sure you have a been that you can put a major anchor in to because it's not easy. Females may need their dudes to help.
from Elk Grove, CA
I love him. I had bought him at the half off sale he worked for one week until the head stopped working. I contacted Spirit they sent me a new head for him. He works excellent in my garage. I plan on using him in a haunted house this year along with Pumpkin guardian of the grave.
from Quad Cities Illinois
awesome halloween prop, nice creepy effect, could swing a little more, maybe use rods down through the center of each side of the rope about 6in. to create better swing action

from HORSHAM PA
This is a neat thing to have but very disappointed the money we spent and eyes stopped working after fours hours. Neighbor bought it too and it happened to theirs as well.

I liked it however the eyes on two different purchased did not work more than one day
Guest Services Response:Thank you for the feedback on the Lil' Nester. We have noticed that with the eyes and over-all head control the connection must securely fastened. The hay that is towards the neck of the item may interfere with this connection, so make sure it is not blocking anything when attaching the head. If there are any more issues, please contact Dr. Zombie and his Tech Support team, we will be happy to assist you.

Great prop for a great price. I hung him from the tree with Pumpkin Nester. They were a hit. He's easy to put away.
Nester is great

About Me Budget Shopper
This is my 2nd one . I bought the 1st back in 2014..after using him for 2 hours fory party ..& an hour for Halloween ..he stopped turning his head ...I figured I would just have to use him as he was ... I was in contract with Spirit over another prop ..and mentioned my Nestor ... I received a brand new one . It works perfect ! He fits so well in my putrid pumpkin patch !!
Lil Nester Does The Job Right
from Salt Lake City, Utah
We set Lil Nester near the sidewalk leading to the house. As trick or treater approached Lil Nester went to work and frightened children and adults alike. My only regret is not setting up a camera to save reactions from all who came to our house. Thank you for an awesome product.

Was an awesome decoration, recommend buying strobe lights or something for night, or it will be hard to see other than the light up eyes
Best prop ever love him
By Manny the haunter
from Hialeah gardens FL
I love this prop so much when it arrive it was in really good condition and no problems with it at all.
The best prop ever!!!!!
This was the best product ever I really love it so much the eyes are blue instead of green which I was confused about that but his head turns really good and I will always love spirit Halloween all year long thank you.
Poor Quality in manufacturing
from East Wenatchee WA
Lights in eyes quit working after a few hours on the first day of use, after only 2 hours of use on Halloween, the gears that turn the head started stripping and the head quit working. Poor Quality in manufacturing. Item looks nice and would be great if it lasted more than a few hours before it broke. NOT HAPPY.

I love him but sometimes his head clicks and his eyes do not light up but he is very loud! You should but him!
Head stops working
from Chicago Il
Lil Nester has a bad design flaw. The eyes stop working because a wire becomes loose after minimal usage. I bought it in 2014 and used it Halloween 2015. Also, now the head will not rotate anymore.

Best pumpkin patch in the neighborhood

About Me Adventurous, Classic
I had a 'wicked' pumpkin patch .. And he was my star !! He was a huge hit at both parties ..one for my son ..one for the adults .Sadly , though .. On Halloween , after 2 hours of spooking the snot out of all my trick or treaters .. His head stopped moving ..& started making an awful clicking sound . Don't know if he's fixable .he still swings ... But the head turning was the main component to his spookiness .. A little disappointed .
