It's all fun and games until someone gets spooked! The 4.5' Peek a Boo Penny Animated Decoration is a young girl hiding her face, but when she senses your motion around her, she reveals a very creepy dead face.

Comments about Spirit Halloween 4.5 Ft Peek a Boo Penny Animatronics - Decorations:
When I got this prop I thought it wouldn't wobble when she pops her head up since in the video she doesn't wobble. When I activate her she works great but she wobbles a lot. One time she fell and she doesn't pop up that much.

Power cord broke before i even got to use it for halloween so i had to use batteries and her head keeps getting stuck. Very disappointed.
Wish it worked correctly
By Sad in citrus heights

We do a haunted house every year for our neighborhood kids for free. Every year we buy a new animatronic. Penny sounded great in theory but when we set it up it worked for about an hour. We bought this last year, but pulled it out again this year to use as a stationary prop. Really disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Came in broken but had a very nice representative who was very helpful. Had no issue sending back-waiting for new replacement.

She's A Keeper

About Me Midrange Shopper
I purchased Peek A Boo Penny April 2017 so this will be the first Halloween in my display. She is pretty startling when her head pops up and it pops up very quickly. Penny may need to be fastened down to keep her in place or from toppling over. She reminds me of the jumping brown spider activates quickly with quite a bit of force. The volume is adjustable and her voice is clear she only has one phrase but it's creepy. She could use a little more hair to conceal her face before she pops up. Her costume is cute ruffles,lace and bows in her hair very cutesy till her face shows up and she has one ugly face! The prop is a decent size the sensor is in her hand and triggers easily. I like that Penny is versatile enough to be used in different themes haunted house, graveyard, asylum etc. She would fit in well with the 2017 Haunted Kids animatronics. I'm hoping Peek A Boo Penny has durability to match her scare quality. I like this prop there's not a lot of bells and whistles but it's fast and effective. Her only downside is once she is put together she can't be totally disassembled and put back in her original box. The price seems fair and I purchased her with an online 20 percent off discount.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Scare on Target - love her!
Love her more than anything! Element of surprise is definitely on target with this prop. Best prop purchase ever!! I am a Halloween junky and frequent the on-line store and there almost weekly when Spirit opens up stores in my area, so this is an awesome scare!

Peek-a-Boo Penny is Best Penny
from Houston, TX
I bought Penny two years ago and she has brought *so* many scares since then. I've had trick-or-treaters get scared by her, find their friends, and send them up to my door so she could scare them too! I have her activated with the foot-pad that I hide under a mat. The only (minor) issue I've had is that the adapter for the plug stopped working. But as long as I keep an eye on the batteries and have replacements close at hand, then she keeps on scaring. AWESOME prop!

I would buy again and do tell others to buy her
I love penny, 2nd one I bought, I use her in my outdoor decor. Kids AND adults get scared when her head pops up (kids run, adults do it again). Only con is she wobbles but then again she not meant for outdoors

Best prop ever for the price!
This is the best prop i own! She scared the heck out of everybody at my halloween party! Great price and speedy delivery too!
Would be nice if it worked
from Milton, KY
Got it pretty quick and put it together, the sound works great but the head will not pop up like it is supposed to. It is still pretty creapy but we wish it would work. We emailed the company and will wait to see how they fix the issue.

About Me High-end Shopper
Every year we have a Halloween display in our business and every year our customers cannot wait to see all the moving/speaking characters. We were so excited this year to order Peek a Boo Penny and once she was put together and turned on, we were so glad we ordered her. Unfortunately that was short lived...within 2 days she stopped working. For what this item cost I would have expected to at least been able to have her last through Halloween. We turned her on the night of October 8th, 2016 and she stopped working October 10th, 2016. To say we and our customers are disappointed would be an understatement!!

BUY ONE NOW if you haven't already while she lasts! SO awesome! Totally worth your money!
Peek A Boo Penny
from Attleboro, MA
A very scary prop. Penny has a quick set up that is not to complicated. Very well detailed and works very well, and she is also pretty durable. Her Pop-Up action is very quick and is sure to scare any guests. (She even scares me sometimes.) Very happy with her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a quick and good scare for their Halloween Party, Haunted House, etc. Amazing decoration. :)

PEEK- BOO- PENNY was our new addition for our haunted yard. Amongst our other displays, we staged a bedroom where she was with her dead grandpa laying in his coffin bed. Very effective, people too scared to look and avoided the covered step pad. She makes a person scream with surprise! If there's anyone else that loves to celebrate Halloween, she's a wonderful addition.
People look at her hands...everyone jumps!
Everyone is watching her hands....love watching people jump!
Great addition to haunted house
from Murrieta, CA
Used with optional footpod, it takes too long for Penny to deploy. She sings her "trick or treat" song every time before deploying. There should be a mode where she deploys immediately when footpod is pressed. This would make it easier to scare unsuspecting victims!

Very useful and love it. :)
By Halloween Haunt Guy
from Winston Salem, NC
Peek a boo penny is a very effective jump scare prop! The only problem I have is she leans a little, so it has to be on a flat surface to be straight at all. But other than that, everything is working perfectly! Motion sensor works great, and is fairly sensitive to sound.... like the description says, everyone will jump when penny's head fly's!
from Regina, SK, Canada
I bought this prop last year and her operating during our haunted house but did notice some issues.I worked on the issues this year and was hoping for the best.......not much improvement. Quality control is evident....it lacks this as some of the Penny props I've seen are good and others, like mine, were poorly built. The sensor works 25% of the time, even in well lit areas. Operating with a switch in silent mode is the best way but not reliable. Will work properly 3 times in a row and then not work again until I re-adjust wires. Then it'll work again a few more times then it won't. Very inter-mitten. The base is too small causing the prop to want to fall over during every activation, so you need to use wire to help prop it up better. The head is also selective on whether its going to work or not? The head has always popped up 100% but won't return down every 50% of the time or so. I am going to try and re-wire the prop one more time (I have years experience with this) and if it won't respond properly I will add her to the non motion prop pile I guess?

Can not say what is good about it. Purchased one got it home put it together and did not work at all, took it back got a second one and put it together and the sound worked but the animatronics did not work. Very disappointed. Now I have to make a third trip back to the store for the same product.
