Comments about Spirit Halloween 21 Inch Black Jumping Spider Animatronics - Decorations:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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

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

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.

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

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!
A good scare!

About Me Budget shopper
This is a great product! Bought last Halloween and worked great! I had it in front of my Family Plot and when people weren't looking I'd trigger it and then people would jump! This year it's going to look even cooler where I use it!
Love the product, just wished is worked better.
Love the spider, we got some good scares out of people on Halloween. However, the spider is constantly clicking whenever is goes back down. It only sometimes goes off. It sounds like it is going to break. Love the product, just wished is worked better.
Would not buy again, all the parts were not included.
Very disappointed with this purchase. Since we had purchased these spiders from Spirit Halloween in the past we felt confident with this purchase. WRONG! When we were finalizing our decorations on Halloween we were shocked to find that the AC adaptor was not included in the box. This spider decoration was useless and left a definite hole in our decorating scheme.
I probably won't buy online again.
My spider would have gotten 5 stars. But it didn't work correctly. I was also told I would get free shipping at the store and I was charged.
I would NOT buy this again!

I bought this from a Spirit Halloween store, not online. I took it home and assembled it and it worked great but when Halloween came around, it would only work if somebody touched it. The motion sensor did not seem to work. I made sure there was nothing blocking it. I was quite disappointed.

I normally do a haunted graveyard and a spiderweb in my yard.I have lots of other props from spirit.I got the spider this year and everybody loved it!
Great if you want it for only one year

About Me High-end shopper
I bought this spider last year to be used for our spider themed Halloween. It worked great the first year. We put in in a nice size box and stored it, very carefully, in our downstairs closet with the rest of the Halloween decorations. This year when we set it up, it wasn't jumping when people went near it, but would if you touched it. When it came back down, it would start to make grinding and clicking noises and wouldn't go down all the way. We brought it back inside and found that the gears were completely stripped and noticed the sensor quit working. Now all it's good for is a very expensive prop.
Great Item, Works very well!
The Jumping Spider is a great prop, really takes people by surprise. He works best with the power adaptor (sold separately) We have gone through a couple in the past few years they can only jump so many times before the plastic arm gets weak and snaps. We've also had trouble with the motors not bringing him back to his home position. Other than that he works great and looks great in any theme haunted house.
