About Me High-end Shopper
I got him brand new from a spirit store that is two hours away from because they had one left. It was worth the drive because this guy is awesome! He says four amazing faces that make my parent crack up, and they both agree that he is the best one we own. The setup is a little advanced but nothing too hard. Overall, if there is one near you, GET THIS GUY!
I would recommend this product.
Nester was the hit of our Halloween party last weekend. He was easy to put together. I was very impressed on the quality of Nester.
Can i give it 6 stars? Great buy - even for the money. He's the star of the show!
How cool is Nester
from irvine ca
I accidently reviewed the other Nester but we have this one in the suit. We got him last year. He was so cool hanging in our emptied dining room that we turned into a haunted space. I would recommend him over and over.

Nester Rules the Patch!
By King of Creep
from Akron, OH
Pumpkin Nester is a colorful, brash and mildly disturbing addition to my Halloween menagerie I almost bought him last year on impulse while at a Spirit store but restrained myself. Never forgot him though, and when I was thinking of 2015 display candidates I remembered seeing Nester at the store. I was told that he was being discontinued but the associate suggested I check online for any remaining stock. Found him. Ordered immediately. Arrived as advertised. Easy to assemble and looked great out of the box with no staging needed.Only issue I had was intermittent difficulty triggering the sound activation. Considered requesting a replacement but didn't have time to get a replacement in time for Halloween. After he was plugged in for awhile he worked well enough to join the porch display. If you order this guy, be sure to do it in plenty of time for trial in case you run into a similar issue.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Guest Services Response:Thank you for the feedback on the Pumpkin Nester animatronic. Double check the sensor area, if it is covered in any way it could effect how the sensor picks up sound and may not register it enough to activate the prop. If you have any further questions, please reach out to Dr. Zombie and his Tech Support team.

About Me Midrange Shopper
Great Halloween prop. We hung him from the front tree. I only gave it four stars because sometimes the eye didn't light up- the head has to be pushed hard onto the neck or there will not be a connection with the lighting part of it (the mouth still moved and talked)
great for partys

About Me Budget Shopper
Hung it up between 2 trees and had hay hay for everyone to sit on..was the highlight of the party
We hung Nester outside but took him in every night. He is large and incredibly creepy. His voice is scary and his phrases are frightening without being cheesy. I had a 40% off coupon, otherwise I don't think I would've spent that kind of money on him. We will see how he stores until next Halloween.

This is really great, hope it's not to delicate to make it to next year, really love it.
By Misty S.
from Nashville, TN
First off, Spirit sent us this prop when another we had bought was defective. It was an upgrade to the one we had so I have to say their customer service is amazing! This prop looks great set up in our front yard for our Halloween display. We love the animations as did our neighbors. The only complaint we have is that it is very difficult to get the sound sensor to pick up. We ended up using a driveway alarm system to trip it which worked but the dinging of the sensor was loud which took away from the effect. This product would be tons better with a motion sensor.
Nester doesn't like to talk!!

I bought one in 2014,voice box went out called for help,useless, bought another 2015 because the kids really like it and it looks good hanging in a tree..voice box went out in that one..way too expensive to have these problems ..wish you could just replace the voice box..when it worked the voice is great..

Awesome product and easily one of the best ones out there
By Josh the Jester
from Centerton, Arkansas
Nester was a crowd favorite. I used him in a tree beside my drive way with a Spirit Halloween blue led spotlight mounted above him. He was a main attraction in my yard haunt that draws over 300 trick or treators every year. Sound is loud and clear.Eyes glow a spookish greenVery quite motors make him seem real.
pretty cool! pumpkin nester was a big hit.
Cool product. Expensive but used As main display piece.
Pumpkin Nester Decoration
from Attleboro, MA
The Pumpkin Nester is great! Features A not too complicated set-up. His movements and look are realistic, and he speaks about 4 different phrases, which are Spooky and Funny. Please keep in mind, that there is no visible Module on this decoration, but there are separate plugs for the Adapter and Try Me/Footpad activators. I believe Once he is plugged in without an Activator, then he is in Sensor Mode, and if he has an activator plugged in, he is in Off/Try me mode.The Pumpkin Nester is HUGE, especially the head and swing. The Swing also hangs easy.I LOVE this Decoration and would highly recommend. :)

Nester is so cool I got him in 2014 and I love. The only thing wrong is his head is very loose.

About Me Adventurous
Bought this last year sits by my front door and greets all my treaters. Easy to put together, very loud, best of all animatronics I own (as far as how it moves and loudness of volume). If it tore up tommorrow, i would go out and buy another one. The only con is i wish it was standing up so i could set it up closer to the street so people as they drive by could get a closer look.

What a trip!

#3 in the line-up from Spirit is Nester. He was purchased last year in store. I do a huge grave yard in my front yard and he sits amongst 20 or so Jack-O-Lanterns and in front of a stack of straw bales with corn stocks all around and orange accent lights. He is by far the creepiest and the most popular of my family and he's got a great sense of humor. If it weren't for the lighting placement though I don't feel that he'd be so cool. He's not very "authentic" looking (however authentic a fantasy figure can look). His feet look stupid, his legs are skinny & it difficult to get them to set correctly & his fingers flatten when you wrap them around the ropes. Not a major deal, but also his head doesn't quite stay put and doesn't always make good electrical contact due to poor engineering. I would highly recommend future designs incorporate the red and white R/C plugs that the Spell Reading Witch & Pestilence Reaper and others use. I have to tape his head on each time I set him up or his eyes won't light up.Still a great piece. I love the extra long power cord and design. Assembly is as easy as it can get and considering that I begin my set-up in September, I can simply remove him from his hook, fold his legs up and bring him in each night so he doesn't get cold. Him and his companions appreciate the warm living room. Although they take up a lot of space and I forget that they are there at times when I get up at night for a drink of water, lol. All in all I love my Nestor.
Created a haunted house at work in a conferrence room. It was a big hit. The first thing that greeted guest, was Pumpkin Nester. I had him setting off to the side,in a tree. His sensor worked great, the timing was good because the door set him off. I liked that he had 3 different sayings, but wished he had more. His voice was very clear and loud.
Pumpkin Nestor stole the show!

About Me Classic
We set Nester up under a big ladder so he welcomed our trick r treaters, and we always have a lot of people stop by every year. (possibly 200 or more this year)The shipping, you guys, seems always outrageous tho. $30+ Check the stores first. We saw this last year and really wanted him, so we bought online early.
Best animatronic for 2014
By Boston Lisa

About Me Adventurous, Always Looking For Out, Classic, Conservative, Trendy
Best addition to my haunted house for 2014. After 10 years of haunted fun, it served as my center piece for my annual neiborhood haunted lair. It was unique and humorous. Kids and adults loved this animatronic. It looks a bit scary but it's vocal is playful and is not scary. This juxtaposition made it playful and kid approved from toddlers to teenagers!
