Sometimes Halloween is funny, and sometimes…not so much. The Forgotten Farmer can be the best of both worlds, as it has two distinctly different audio functions (which can be changed using the switch on the back of his head). You could have this farmer cracking jokes at your family Halloween party, and then switch to its grotesque roaring when you’re ready to scare all of your trick-or-treaters. And with eyes that move back and forth, this Forgotten Farmer will come to life when anyone decides to get too close…but whether your guests are laughing or screaming is completely up to you!

Comments about Spirit Halloween 5 Ft Forgotten Farmer Animatronics - Decorations:
Great Unique Design- This pitch fork was definitely one of a kind. It actually scared my kids. People trick-or-treating were asking where to order/purchase it. Of course I said the Spirit store online or at the local store here in town!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for my autistic nephew and he was thrilled!
from Lakeland, FL
I bought this as a gift for my nephew who has autism. He sent me a picture of exactly what he wanted. He received a number of different ones for his birthday that came from your store. He loves Halloween and I am so grateful I was able to get him something he wanted. He was so excited and he knew what it was even with the wrapping paper still on it. He instantly set it up with all his other Halloween animatronics. After his birthday he is still sending me pictures of ones he wants from your site.

Not sensitive enough
I mounted this outside my door so it woul activate when kids would walk up to ring the doorbell. It would not activate unless ou actually tapped it. The "scary voice" is the farmer just growling which is kind of corny. I like the looks and quality though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Amazing detail, okay quality
By Anonymous Haunter
He is very cool! I like the eye and mouth movement. It is unique how he has two sound options- scary and funny mode. He may not be good to use around kids because one of his phrases is "too much moonshine last night again" so just put him on scary mode. He is not good quality. The left eye on mine stopped lighting up. I've seen lots of people have trouble with his mouth movement. Cool prop but needs to be more durable
Limited functionality issue
By Prop Maker
from Vista, CA
Looks great and stands nicely both indoors and out. But Voice and mouth movement stopped working after only a few night use. Many demo models in store were the same way. Functional and durability could be better based upon the price factor. I've bouth many animatronics from Spirit and they've workied for years, but not this one.

How could I forget?
from New York
It took me quite a while to decide whether to buy this or not. But I finally decided to use my coupon on Farmer Fred here, and now he's an amazing part of my collection! The "Funny Mode" has to be my favorite mode! I can't wait to see how he looks in my yard this year! He just may catch few people off guard! I recommend him a million times!
Hes not bad
from Denton Texas
I bought this guy because he amused me and I think he will go along well in my Deliverance setting.He is amusing for a while but he wont hold attention for too long, But he will get plenty of use out of him still. Comes with an extra piece that looks like a stake, but no instructions on what its used for, so I can only assume it replaces the standing base so it can be put in the ground. Other than that hes good for a few laughs.
Very Cool and not forgotten farmer.
from Tysons Corner, Virginia
The 'Forgotten Farmer' is a great funny/scary display piece. I just purchased it and am pleased. I did read the other reviews and would add that the 'extra piece' is a piece for inserting it in the ground. On the 'scary mode' setting it only growls. Would be better if it had a couple of scary sayings like "the rest of my body is coming for you!". All in all I am pleased and excited to use it this Halloween!

Previous review was right. It came with no directions and an extra mystery piece of pole. Other than that, I'm loving it. Dont really need directions I guess. I just had to figure out the buttons.

This is a pretty nice prop. The one I received was in a damaged/open box (not damaged in shipping - Spirit just sent the thing out this way). It was missing directions, and came with one extra pole, shorn-off on one end, which doesn't seem to go to anything. Not exactly rocket science to set up, tho! I really like that there are two modes (scary or funny), volume control, and the ability to run on a/c adapter and with try me button if desired. (none of that extra stuff is included, nor are the batteries, fyi!) I'm not sure how well this would stand on an uneven surface or in high winds, but I plan to use mine indoors, and he's perfect for that. The lighted up moving eyeballs are a nice touch.
