This resting scarecrow seems to be sleeping, but when someone reaches for the candy in his lap, his head pops up and he makes scary sounds! Perfect for scaring trick-or-treaters or any of your guests!

I would buy Sitting Scarecrow again and again

About Me Midrange Shopper
Comments about Spirit Halloween 4.5 Ft Sitting Scarecrow Animatronics - Decorations:
Every kid and some adults got scared when the scarecrow went off with the sensor . It was so funny i loved when it kept happening over and over. Their faces were so frightened. Every child that went up to my doorstep went to the scarecrow, and I hid the extra bowl as soon as they put their hand inside the bowl at the perfect moment, the scarecrow went off and scared the living daylights out of the children. Most of them were ten and over. My other props don"t scare the kids only this one. This amazing scarecrow is the best prop so far for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This worked perfect! The kids loved it, well not at first, but when they got to watch the others get scared, they liked it. It sat on my front porch for trick or treat night! Can't wait to get it back out and use it again!!!

About Me Budget Shopper
We put this on our covered porch and left it outdoors for about three weeks unplugged. Halloween night we could hear people screaming from all the way down the street from being scared. It was awesome! My only issue is when trying to break it down after Halloween it wouldn't come apart so now it sits in my storage room scary the you know what out of me any time I have to go in there. Absolutely terrifying though. Definitely worth it!!
My neighbors were dragging their friend over to see "HANK"
By Hanks Mother
LOL Hank was the hit of the neighborhood I bought a bale of hay and a pumpkin patch sign and plopped ole Hank out in Early October. I put a pumpkin in the bowl and did not plug him in.... everyone thought what a cute scarecrow. The week of Halloween I exchanged the pumpkin with a bowl of candy and plugged that sucker in. After my neighbor next door got the wits scared out of her she dragged every other neighbor over by suckering them in by saying come see Michelles cute little scarecrow. My favorite was a little girl came up and said.... Are you the lady with the scary kid. All 200 of the kids that came to my door were surprised when Hank did his "thing". I love Halloween and have spent lots of money on yard decor but Hank was the biggest hit yet. I will be looking for a girlfriend for Hank next year.

I like this
By Cornudo stock
Broke after a couple uses
Tried it out a couple times and it worked ok, the next day after just sitting the head would not go down all the way. Now it won't go down at all, just the audio works.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Haven't used it yet but works in a spectacular fashion.
from Essex VT
Though I bought this after Halloween so it was much cheaper. I haven't used it yet but have extensively tested it out and I am so excited to see the effect it has on people.

I LOVE THIS PROMPT!
By Halloween Queen
from North Carolina
This scarecrow was one of the best animated prompts I have ever purchased. Looks realistic, seems to not be cheaply made, and scares people! I'm very happy with this scarecrow.

"Is he real, or a person....?????"
"Earl", (as we aptly named him), was a HUGE hit! the uncertainty of each person "meeting Earl" to get their treats was priceless! He was the PERFECT addition to this years theme. As always, Spirit Halloween never disappoints!! Love me some "Earl", and all of my goodies from Spirit!

I love the sitting scarecrow because it will scare you a lot
from GA ,Kennesaw
I love the sitting scarecrow. I love how it pops its head out at you. It really scares my friends. They will not go near it. But the only problem is that when he pops up you can see the inside him. But he is a great prop! I am hoping for a lot of scares this year!
The fright was real with this guy
from Sellersburg, IN
We bought this last year and the entire neighborhood went nuts. It was awesome! He will make small children cry. My husband had him waiting at the door many times when I came home or the kid came home from school and he never failed to scare us!! Must have for any Halloween fanatic!
from Planet earth.
I love to use this animatronic. It is very scary and is fun to watch people's reactions. I have no problems with it. I would highly recommend this to someone who wants a little spook in their halloween!
I recommend this to anyone

I am going to use this product for my display. this is a great product. The only thing is the motion sensor needs some form of ambient light.
