Awesome scare prop

Comments about Spirit Halloween 21 Inch Black Jumping Spider Animatronics - Decorations:
Love love love this spider. Most people are afraid of spiders, a larger spider that unexpectedly leaps out at you is a guaranteed scare and shreek. Once I connected a step pad and hid it under a throw run in the foyer it worked perfectly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Midrange Shopper
This worked perfectly fine during the day, but once it got dark it wouldn't recognize anyone walking by. It went off twice for trick or treaters and it was because they were loud and it activated it. Other than that, not once did it jump! Was a waste of money as it turned into just an expensive decoration.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I would never buy this item again.
from Wauconda, IL
I bought this Spider and it only scared the kids less then 2hrs. Does not want to go back in place. I changed the battery, foot pad and turned it off. I did everything to fix the spider. Nothing!
from Shreveport, La
Broke after first use. And what's worse, they have no return policy. Never buying from this store again!
No element of surprise ..makes a slight noise and backwards
By Jig nait
The thing makes a slight noise and movement backwards before it lunges .. element of surprise is not there
why no footpad
By rather b golfing
from buffalo ny
the spider is great and can't wait to use it....in the store the footpad was very much part of the presentation but when I got it home to set it up it turns out the footpad (or the electrical outlet) is part of the package....this should have been made clear when purchasing the product.....I thought I was getting what was set up in the store.
GREAT TO SCARE PEOPLE WITH.

WHEN IT JUMPS OUT IT IS GREAT.

About Me Budget Shopper
My 3 year old LOVED this spider in the store so I finally bought him one. I will end up buying an adaptor because of how often i have to change the batteries (because he plays with it non stop). It's also surprisingly durable. In the first few days we've had it he's picked it up, dropped it, AND fell on it and it still works perfectly. 5 stars!

By GOT THEM CHEESEBURGERS
from Chicago, IL
I used this guy back in 2015 on Halloween at an archery shop and range and didn't scare many people. It is also not a spider, but more of a tarantula. With the sensor it activates nonstop like a prop by seasonal visions on steady on mode because of how loud the place was. When I used the footpad, nobody really stepped on it because I hid it under a carpet. Also, Spirit literally inserts it into every single theme they can. I'm not mad at you guys, but it's time to move on. It was easy to set up, and well worth the price, but it is way too overrated.

I really like the spiders detail
By SPIRIT HALLOWEEN CENTRAL
The spider is used in my haunt but it doesn't go as fast as it did when I bought it and it need s a volume control
Scare Level: High
from Little Neck NY
The Jumping Spider is a must have for your collection of decor because forget the big props... even the smallest and most horrifying gets a lot of scares out people who dare to pass by. The "Jumping" action adds a lot to the effect. This prop has been selling out in almost every store near me because of how simple and scare-worthy it is. Totally recommend picking it up if you are into Spider props and scaring kids on Halloween because let me tell you ... IT WILL :)
Awesome, Very Effective Product
Very effective product. Works great, gets many scares. Great quality! Highly recommend purchasing this product if you don't want to pay too much for an effective scary product

Doesn't hold up.
Only 1 of the spiders I purchased actually operate correctly. Customer service is a NIGHTMARE!
It is a great product and good value. Easy set up. My grandkids loved it
I would definitely buy this product again!
Absolutely amazing! !!!!! I love this! Scared all my friends wonderfully! !!!
I love the jumping spider
Awesome spider and gives a scare every to my sons who love Halloween and Spirit.
Works Great So Far
Jumps better than I thought it would. Footpad works as expected.
This spider will be great way to scare our guests.
This spider is cool and will scare our guests on Halloween. Cannot wait to hear the screams. We are going to set it up so that it should trigger before they notice it. The first thing they see will be this jumping out at them.
Really scary - I would certainly buy it again
After assembling the jumping spider we placed near to our front door. Properly hidden under a bench, it is that scary that we hoped for. The local paper delivery man even dropped our newspaper after the jumping spider had touched - the scene was so funny!
Cool but can get obstructed easily
By Haunt City
from South Florida
I bought this last year and it scared a lot of people but after a while on Halloween it was clicking and jumped back up. But after Halloween I did fix it and after that it worked better, turns out that the web was caught in the mechanism. Over all, I would recommend this, just make sure the web doesn't get caught in anything apart of the mechanism.
K product, but be prepared
Fun decoration for Halloween. However, I wish the power cord and stepping mate came with the product instead of it being a separate purchase. Now I have to spend additional money to add the accessories.

Awesome for Haunted Houses and Halloween
By Holiday Lover
from Macon, GA
Used this in my haunted house last year and it scared people most out of every prop I had..
This is one of our best props. Its slow to jump, so the 1st person sets it off and is scares the next person...mostly parents lol It is lightweight and will move around, so it has to be secured into place.
Easily to hide and a great scare
I think my 3 year old likes this decoration more than I do. I bought this last year for my home display and my son set him off more times in the few days leading up to halloween then all the trick or treaters I got on halloween night. It is a good size that it is easy to place in less than obvious spots to get the max scare from unsuspecting guests. Only thing I do not like is that leaves get stuck in the webbing and is hard to get out.

I loved this product cause it works wonderfully and gave my neighbor Hood fun and scares. With it, I had the best house on the street!
whould buy brown one
By spooky scary skeloton
this is my favorite animatronic next to pop up zombie
I got one on sale and named her Becky and I love her so much
I named her Becky and she scared my cat she works great but the only thing that is bad is that every time she jumps the whole thing moves forward so I had to pen her in place.
great for all ages
By Lakewood Home Haunter

Great for kids/teens/adults I would highly recommend this for parties or to jumpscare trick or treaters
I might recommend this to a friend
I got this guy (girl in this case) from Spirit Halloween as a reward for being in a play. It took a long time to come and, sadly, came on November 1st (the pain is real). But when I put her together, she worked great! She scared my mom pretty bad when I activated her. I didn't give this 5 stars because first of all, she doesn't jumpscare me because of the loud motor, I can clearly see the tan plastic, and it's motion sensor doesn't work well. It's only sound activated. But I still like it A LOT and can't wait to put her out on halloween!
