Take things to a whole new level of spooky with this Haunted Shovel Tombstone! This shovel appears to be moving on its own while an ominous voice seems to be speaking out of nowhere. While the shovel is moving and the voice is speaking, purple LED lights illuminate the tombstone and shovel, casting a spooky glow over the scene.

OK for a PAC animatronic
About Me Budget Shopper
I usually hate Pan Asian Creation animatronics with a passion but this is an ok PAC animatronic. The detail is great, the light effect is great, and the animation is great. The tombstone is plastic which is definitely a better chose than using styrofoam but the plastic is kind of flimsy. The base is plastic too but it is much harder. And of course, the shovel is plastic. The Haunted Shovel Tombstone is also very easy to take apart and to set up. The only problems I have is that it uses a light sensor which is the type of sensor everyone hates. And it can at least be 10 dollars cheaper like somewhere between $85-$70. But this isn't the type of animatronic i'd pay full price for.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

good til it got wet
By Dan - Chicago Burbs
from Woodridge, IL
I had hoped since it was made from a thicker plastic it would hold up better in the cooler wet Fall of the mid west, but after a rain fall it stopped working. I tried to bring it in to dry it out, but no luck, it was done.
I would not buy this again
Not the best made item. I had to two of them because the first one nothing worked on it. The AC adapter (purchased seperatley) did not work and it wasn't the adapter because it was purchased from Spirit seperarly because it doesn't come with one. (for a 100$ item really?) Also the volume switch was bad on as well. Could never get it to work. Also the cover for the batteries was missing which leads me to believe the item was probably returned once before. So I called and told them I wanted my money back and they sent a new one anyway. The 2nd one worked better but the sensor doesn't work that great. I need a strobe light sitting right in front to set it off. Its dad too because when it does work it's cool. Luckily the customer service was great and refunded my money.
Looks good, works well.
Works well and looks good. I gave it a 4 star because it should have an a/c adapter included.

On Oct. 29th, I thought I needed one more touch for my Graveyard, so I went to Spirit and got this! I was very happy with what I got, the sensor was broken right out of the box, so it is not the best built, but it is still good! So I used a step pad which worked great! It had a great effect in my Graveyard, while a mortal would speak as he tries to free his Corpse from the underworld as he speaks a long ghastly phrase, he also has volume control which could complete the ultimate success, if you are looking for a creative Tombstone prop, THIS IS THE ONE!!

I would recommend it
I wish the senser was more sensitive as it was difficult to set up where it would go off. Had to set it up against my chain link fence for it to trigger.

Went perfectly with my Halloween Cemetery scene. Very pleased.

This prop is so awesome, I got it in late October, super cool prop!

Loved it in the store but it stopped working after a half hour and we used it with the optional plug in adaptor.

Cheap Soft flimsy plastic poor construction
from Collinsville, OK
I was so excited to get this it looked so cool in the video, but once I got it I was so disappointed its cheap, soft, flimsy plastic very poorly constructed and bent in the wind so bad that now the shovel won't even stand straight anymore.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am a Halloween nut. Every year I get something to add to my collection. This tomb stone shovel is just as it said. Love it. Nothing to scary do not want to scare the kids.
I would reccommend this item to a friend
Perfect addition to my cemetery Very unique, easy to put together. Been a spirit customer for over 5 years and overall their creations and quality of the animatronics are far superior. .
Love it! Fits in to our graveyard perfectly!
Inside decoration, really?
from Bates City, MO
I bought this as an addition to my Halloween collection....first of all, mine only said one phrase and kept repeating it and most importantly, who wants to build a graveyard inside or on a covered porch. It would have added so much to the theme but the indoor was a deal breaker. Returned!
Promising Battery Operated Prop
This is a great prop. The size and detail is nice and the shovel is about the size of a real shovel (small, not full sized). It was very easy to put together and looks like it will hold up well in my graveyard. I really like that it runs off of batteries so I don't have to worry about running another cable. I can't give it 5 stars yet, because I haven't actually gotten to use it beyond testing it.
The Only Place to Shop for Halloween Needs!
Another great purchase. Thanks!
Sturdy and easy to store for future use.
Fun new product that looks as good in person as it does in pictures. Durable and easy to store, as it comes apart. Looking forward to displaying this item in my Halloween graveyard this year!

About Me Avid Gardener
The Haunted Shovel with Tombstone is a well-detailed, well-lit Halloween prop that has a resemblance to the Haunted Mansion from Disney. This tombstone is very neat and a nice addition to your haunt! The flaws I've noticed so far were the price and the lack of phrases. Besides the cons, this is a spook-tacular Halloween decoration!
Exactly as described

About Me Adventurous
Great item. Works as described. Pretty loud, which I like. Takes all of about 1 minute to set up. Only issue is the tombstone can fall off with a little gust of wind. So if you have it outside, maybe use some strong tape or something to secure it to the base. Otherwise, this is very cool.
Haunted Shovel love it

Very easy to put together.......has a volume control that helps.........and also you can plug in an external speaker.....just used it this past weekend and worked great...........make sure you have extra batteries available, as it came with batteries, but they needed replacing.......

Better Than Expected
About Me Adventurous, Classic, Conservative
We bought this as an after thought but once assembled we were very happy with the quality and design. While it reminds me of a couple older props that had a hand holding a head, its really better. The sound is very good and understandable, has self contained lights so it will work in a lighted area or in the dark, and it looks very realistic. Granted its just a shovel and a tombstone but it does look authentic. One item of note, it comes with batteries already in it so be careful putting it together, if your finger slips and hits the on position of the switch it will activate and possibly give you a startle.
