Comments about Spirit Halloween 21 Inch Brown Jumping Spider Animatronics - Decorations:
I love to put this thing in hallways and entries, where it can jump out at people walking by. Putting it in these locations also makes it so that they can't avoid it. I like how far out and up it jumps (jumps up to around 2'), and how loud the sounds are. (that scream will make me deaf) What I don't like is how delayed it is, it takes 1-2 seconds to deploy. It also will jump its way around the room if you don't screw it down or put the back support under something.Overall, I like this animatronic, I think that it really does work (scares people that is), and I also think that it will continue function for a while.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works great. Scares every year. keep a light by it though
from Haslet Texas
It works perfectly. Anyone who has problems with the motion sensor loses light. If you keep the lights by it Or a low level lights by where people walk by it. The motion sensor works perfectly and it scares people everytime. I purchased a second one it works so well. My first one is 8 years old and working strong.

Has a good Jump Scare
By KJC Halloween
This prop is so cool. I have had the jumping spider for a couple years now and it has held up all this time. It scares trick or treaters easily and is very easy to set up, take down and store. It is well worth the price and I would highly recommend.
I would by again from Spirit
Kids LOVE it

About Me Midrange Shopper
We used this jumping spider outside on the deck to scare the trick or treaters... this fury friend is motion sensored which is perfect for unsuspecting victims!
from Severn, MD
I have had the black version of this spider for three Halloween seasons now and even left out in the rain and snow, it has worked flawlessly every year. I hide it in bushes along our walk at different locations every year and our neighborhood trick-or-treaters are always "scared" in anticipation of where it may pop out on them, I have had adults who were unaware nearly wet themselves. Works really great in nearly total darkness with a smoke machine or two. I may get a second one this year to make them a tag team with a land mine effect.
I bought this product when it was 50% off for national spider day and it is an awesome buy! Scares the kids, looks great, and work amazing.
Good And Not Good
I like this item i only have a problem once when i put a sand bag on the front of the item and when it jumped the front foot broke off otherwise i love this item and its great!
I would purchse this product again!
I really enjoy this product! This is the second time I have purchased this product. I run a haunted house and this product is always good for a scream.
i like it
i like the jumping spider so much. it scared everybody . the only complaint i have would be that it has no adapter.
I love this prop!
This is the best prop in our Halloween decorations. Always a surprise. I put the jump pad (you guys should really just include this with the purchase) under the mat in front of the door so when the kids come for candy the spider jumps to greet them. Always a few screams which is what Halloween is about. I bought two years ago and broke it putting it away. You must let it retract while there are batteries in it. Forcing it... well, don't do it! I did, and had to buy a new one. But the free next day shipping was awesome and it arrived in time for Halloween. I love Spirit of Halloween! Great place to shop, and I love the Pop Up stores here in my city in case I missed anything.
Do not buy the spider
Product was difficult to assemble and did not work as adveridsed. Total waste of money

Best Halloween Gag Ever and excellent customer service!
from Napa, CA
The greatest Gag ever. The giant spider is cute and squishy so after you freak out the little kiddies, they can hug it or pet its butt.I LOVED this Jumping spider.I bought the extra step pad so I could control the scare and do it as they exited my porch, But sometimes they accidentally stepped on the pad and it was still a surprise for them even though it went off behind them.I also want to mention that i bought my Jumping Spider at the brick and mortar store and when I got it home, it was obviously a re-packaged floor model with missing parts and didn't work so I bought a new one online because i couldn't get back to the store right away and was terrified they wouldn't have one for exchange when I did.Later I opened a chat with Spirit online to ask about returning the broken one for a refund and they refunded me for the new one I ordered online after I emailed a copy of that store receipt. AWESOME customer service! Thank you Spirit!

Really cool but broke after first use.
from Mechanicsburg PA
About Me High-end Shopper
I bought this spider last Halloween and it was awesome. I placed it near the front walkway and it would jump out at the kids as they walked by. The sounds were really good. However, when I went to use it this year it broke after the first jump. It no longer retracts back into the start position so it just stays extended. The sound works still but that's it. I'm disappointed it didn't last longer, especially for the price. I reached out to customer service but haven't heard back yet.
I will buy again
Great service fast shipment!
its ok doesn't work well with low light need foot pad

What a pile of garbage
I bought this after several trips to my local store. It seemed durable. I brought it home set it up and didn't use it till halloween night. It worked about an hour then would not jump unless it was bumped. The sound and motion sensor pretty much useless. I had plans to but bigger items next year. But if this is what I can expect I'll shop elsewhere.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

BEWARE OF THE SPIDER!
This is my first animatronic and i love him! I have seen all these amazing Halloween events and I have always wanted to scare people and this spider will do just that! He is the right amount of scary and his jumping action is least expected. This spider is very frightening, you are getting so much for such a cheap price. He has glowing red eyes, a loud bug noise, fast jumping action, and when he jumps, his arms slightly bounce up and down. This awesome spider will be great for scaring people. However, my jumping spider literally jumps about 1/4 of an inch off the ground when he does his animation. I fear that since the base is just plastic, it would break the base and casing around the module over time. Not only that, when I got him out of the box and assembled him, I noticed that the sensor tube was facing down, so the sensor can't pick up any movement, so I have to rely on the sound activation which isn't so sensitive. I have tested it out, saying,"Trick-or-treat!" and sometimes he wouldn't even go off. His legs are hard to pose and the webbing is VERY messy. The jumping spider's arm, base, and module casing is plastic. This animatronic is spring loaded and over time the springs will lose tension. Nontheless, with all the cons said, I still recommend this prop because the jumping spiders at both of my local Spirit's are still working fine compared to the other animatronics, that have shown wear and tear. There are a couple of cons but I don't want it to stop you from buying it, this animatronic is still a high quality prop and it's something that I would hopefully be able to use for years to come. You should definetely get him as he usually sells out fast get him while you can, and Happy Halloween!
This spider is the best for some scare tactics
from Sevierville TN
I put it in a corner where is less noticeable but everyone has to walk right next to it and when he jumps the laughs begin
What a great animatronic! Love all the products from Spirit Halloween !
I can't wait to try this on holloween, I like the way it jump out ,the only thing I which the eyes and the little screech noise stay on even if not activated so it could get people closer to activated it ,but I still like the jumping spider.
A great Scare!

About Me Midrange shopper
I bought this spider on a sale a few years ago. Unfortunately the motion sensor stopped working almost right away. This doesn't bother me overly much as I bought a step pad and activate it myself. I use heavy rocks to hold the base down and keep it in place. Once it gets dark, the spider is hard to see which makes it more fun when it jumps out. It's a fun decoration, scary and loud!
I would purchase again!
Purchased for my grandson and he loves it. Has already received many screams from people being surprised. It was very easy to assemble.

I purchased this jumping spider from the online store. When it arrived, it did not work properly. Since it was only a few days until my Halloween party, I took it directly to my local store. The young women who worked there were very helpful and friendly and replaced my defective spider with one that works - they actually assembled it and tested it for me! The spider worked like a champ for me, and many guests commented on it. The only reason I'm not giving a 5 star review is because I had to tie the darn thing to the wall to prevent it from jumping all across the room. Using books to weigh it down did not keep it in place. I've always been very pleased with everything from Spirit, and this product did not let me down.

Great times at Spirit Halloween 2016
Halloween for my son started since last Halloween. My sons Birhtday is in September and all he wanted was Halloween decorations. The jumping out spider was one of many animatronics we got for him and then for Christmas I bought my son A few more decorations through Spirit which included Halloween pumpkin hey Barrel and Lil Skelly bones. This year my son and I went to a few Spirit Halloween stores probably 20 times and really appreciated your company and staff on each visit. My son loves to watch Spirit Halloween videos of other kids visiting your stores and my 5 year old is always looking at your website for new decorations
5 Years and still working
By One eyed cat
from Ontario Canada
I have never written a review for my jumping brown spider despite having purchased it from Spirit 5 years ago along with the now unavailable jumping rat. Felt the need to review it as both of these animatronics still are reliably working. Surprising as they both really spring and I thought they would have worn out by now. Equally surprising is amongst all my other animatronics with more bells and whistles the spider is still scaring everyone including me. One trick or treater dropped their bag of candy and ran. Some people even came back just to be scared by it again. It runs on batteries and I actually get quite a bit of life out of them. It needs to be staked down or firmly secured to keep it from moving around or flipping over as the jumping motion is extreme. The sound is loud and creepy and it can work with a foot pad. The fabric around the base tends to collect debris leafs and such but it just makes it look more realistic. The base can be a bit tricky to disassemble but once off easily stores back in its original box. All in all this has been a great purchase still holding its own against the more sophisticated animatronics.
