This item is considered oversized and will require an additional shipping fee. Shipping promos are valid, but oversize charge will still apply.
Everyone will be afraid to swing by your house with the Swinging Skeleton Boy standing guard. With his menacing chant, he'll spook even the scariest monster's attempts to get to your candy. Watch as his eyes glow ominously as his head follows each of his potential victims, all while swinging creepily back and forth.

My little Skelebones!
I had been eyeing this decoration for several years now and I finally broke down and invested in it. I am really happy I did, it is well made and very unique. Everyone that came to haunt us for treats was intrigued and asked us where we got him. We will use this little guy for many years to come!
I would buy it again

Lil Skelly will works, but could be improved.
By Reaper Collector
from Somewhere in the United States
Overall the design is good and simple. The things I have known are the sensor being auto tripped in colder temperatures. The use of the Foot and Try Me jacks can lead to the sensor not working if the internal contacts get bent out of shape; because using one opens the sensor circuit with an internal jack switch. Given there are 2 jacks it requires both to have good contact for the sensor to work. They should have made it with a slide switch to choose between sensor and foot pad.The head has some weak points. Although the gears do have a anti strip gear in the chain it is too strong. Meaning that if the head movement is prevented; say by a child trying to stop it from moving can cause a gear to strip or break. Even a good jerk or a bump can cause rotational movement, or trying to twist the head off to remove it can break his neck. Aside from that, the eyes can also flicker if the head is not securely mounted from poor contact which is most likely. Eyes can also fail from wires breaking inside the head from extensive flexing from head movement on their pivot pount. If you take care of it and keep it out of reach of destructive forces it will last a long time.

My skelly hangs in the corner of my living room year round!
This is a must have!
from Pickering Ontario
This is one of my favorite props and i cant wait to use him this year!
I would buy again
I hung this from a tree in the yard and it did a great job scaring the unsuspecting and then it kept them amused while they were there trick or treating. Worked well in the dark and was loud enough.
My Favorite Piece!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!Looks great, super creepy, and the best part is the adjustable volume!!! BOOM!
Animatronics - great quality

He's Awesome But Don't Recommend Him
By Horror Productions

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very awesome prop!
from Deerfield, Wi
I work at two haunted houses and I set up yard displays every year. I collect animated props such as this one (I currently have 17 animated life sizes) and Skelly Bones is amazing. I've had him for a year and he continues to work flawless. I've found he swings better if you don't attach the velcro band on the swinging mech. I'm very gentle with my props, and Skelly Bones is no exception, so if you decide to buy him, be careful when taking him apart and putting him back in his box. Overall a great addition to my collection!
My favorite prop and hes so cute and scary
from vancouver canada
This is probably my favorite animatronic. His words are creepy and cute, and he is very easy and fast to set up. It takes me a couple of days to set up so this was important to me. I would recommend him and he can fit on smaller trees. People loved him and I would get a 2nd one. This was my first yr with him and I loved him more than the bigger stuff. but that's just me.
Adorable and creepy
Love this guy! Easy setup. He is adorable and creepy at the same time. I am not a big fan of what he actually says. I would have preferred him to be a bit funnier but you can easily adjust the volume on his back.
Great products to enjoy with the kids
Love Lil Skelly Bones. My kids love it!
I would buy this product again
Although it says it's for indoor use we still have been sticking him outside in a tree and we live in Colorado and he's survived so far. Only problem we're having is it won't shut off. Just keeps repeating himself and not just going off just when the sensor senses something. If we could figure out how to fix that it would be a very awesome Halloween decoration.
Yes. I would buy it again
Great product. Grandkids love skully bones

WOW!! This is one extremely spooky animatronic!
By Layne the Halloween Nut
from Itasca, TX
Last year on my birthday, my dad came up with a good scavenger hunt and after finding hints on sticky notes and looking at those places, I finally found Lil Skelly Bones up on the top shelf of the bathroom cabinet! My dad set it up the next day while I was at my grandma's for a while and after he picked me up, I was so surprised at this animatronic in person and it has a really good motion sensor! The first phrase it says is spookier than the second one, and the first phrase is when he menacingly hums and sings, "Pray for the dead, and the dead will pray for you!" This one spooky and excellent-quality animatronic! I usually always use Step Pads on my animatronics, because they would just go off continuously and wear themselves out if they were on sound/motion sensor mode. So, I preferred using the Step Pad with my swinging Skelly. I can't ever come up with any new themes, but the theme of my house that I am sticking with for now is "The Room of Doom", and I am looking forward to using this animatronic year after year!
Head stopped turning.
from Little Rock, AR
We bought this item last year and his head stopped turning after a week. I did an online chat with Spirit and was told they would send me a new head. It NEVER came. I called to speak with someone and was told they didn't have any heads in stock but they'd give me a 20% off coupon to the store. For the amount of money we spend at Spirit (and trust me, it's a lot) I don't think a 20% off coupon is sufficient.

There is no complaints at all about Lil skelly bones. He meets up to all of my standards and he is an awesome prop.

The price is worth it!
from Middleton, Mass
Lil Skelly Bones is one of my favorite props. He looks very realistic and his movement is spectacular. I love his phrases because they fit this animatronic well. He also swings really well to. He looks creepy while his head turns from side to side. His motion sensor is also great. He is very easy to hang and his ropes adjust easily as well. The eyes light up yellow and the majority of the lil Skelly Bones eyes don't go out like lil nesters. That was a great improvement that Y.J made. Lil Skelly Bones is a five star animatronic and I recommend him to anyone.
swinging lil skelly bones good prop
By take a walk with lil skelly bones
from Ontario, Canada
super good prop i would recommend this to a friend
I would highly recommend Skelly. Yes he needs tender care.
I'm looking forward to setting up "Lil Skelly" this Halloween! Yes, the quality is slightly wanting, but it needs tender love to maintain it. He is pretty cute in his own special way. I look forward to hanging him out on the porch for Halloween night. I hope the night is dry so I can hang him from our tree in the front yard. I plan on just having him out for 3 to four hours and will be with him handing out candy. I may do some electronic hacking to improve on the IR detecting and possibly do some Arduino sound and motion improvements.
