Sometimes the scariest things are the ones that we can’t see...so when this swing starts moving all on its own, it might give people a fright! And if you listen closely, you’ll hear the creaking of the swing and a small girl calling out to you. Some say that she used to be sweet and friendly…when she was alive!

Comments about Spirit Halloween 5 Ft Ghost Swing Animatronics – Decorations:
This swing is really cool. Two things I did not like about it are: 1. The animatronic device along with the velcro straps make it very awkward to hang. I think they could make huge improvements on the frame making it much easier and more effective.2. There is limited ability to change the length of the swing and what you can do, is not simple.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good idea, poor performance
from Vancleave, MS
About Me Midrange Shopper
This is a cool idea, but it just does not work like it supposed to. the motor is supposed to make the swing sway back and forth, but what happens is it just kinda shakes because the motor 1. moves too fast and 2. the design just does not allow for the swing to build momentum to sway by itself. I had to make some major modifications to get it to work semi-good. For the price you pay, it should work correctly out of the box. Not worth the money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great prop for tree
from Chantilly, VA
About Me Budget Shopper
Swing was hung in a front side tree. I got a lot of comments from trick-or-treaters on how creepy and cool it was. Only issue I had (which others have mentioned) is the length in time between activation. 5 minutes seemed like an eternity. Bought a step pad after Halloween for next year. Hope that helps.
Super Cool & Creepy
from North Texas
We bought the step pad separately and it works perfectly. It creeps everyone out which is perfect bc that was the intent I was going for.
Great creepy prop
When I first set this up out of the box as instructed, I was very disappointed...the swing hardly swung at all, maybe an inch or so, you could hardly tell it was moving. I almost returned it. Basically the swing is too long and the controller can't move it much. TIP: Don't use the extra hook and velcro that came with it (it makes it even longer). Also, I cut about a foot of rope length off to shorten it. This is quite simple, they actually tell you how to do this in the instructions all you need is a few tie straps. The shorter the length, the faster and wider it swings. Now it is awesome....creepy and the overhead light makes this a great decoration! LOVE IT

Creepy and I love it
from West Virginia
Love this prop....will be a great addition to my yard and the eerie voice/sayings are a bonus.....love the light at the top that shines down on the swing for an extra creepy affect .....the only thing I wish they would change is adding a sensor ....once it turns on it automatically resorts to a timer and goes off every five minutes....but nothing too bad or that would prevent me from buying it....love it!

This was the new item in my cemetery last Halloween. I hung it in a tree where people would see it walking in front of the house. It got a lot of attention. Before that I hung it in our laundry room and it creeped the whole family out.

About Me Adventurous
Just picked this one up today and I am really happy with it. Saw it in the store and after seeing it enough times it really grew on me. It looks even better when you bring it home. Set up is simple, and it is really easy to hang. It swings very realistically, and the things the little girl says are really creepy. Gave me the chills a couple of times LOL. The only thing that's a bit odd about this one is that it goes through all of its phrases at once. There's no stop, and the next activation it will say something different, like many props do. Not a bad thing, it's just that it'll keep going for a long time, there are about 5 to 6 phrases. It really is a great prop though. A really cool thing about this one is that it has a light in the swing motor that shines down on the seat. It looks like the girl's apparition on the swing, which makes a really cool effect! I guess it depends on what store you go to, but at many of mine you can't see the light very well. But at home it's really noticeable. Seems like a pretty durable prop too. It looks simple, but it's very eerie and nightmarish. This would look amazing in a dark room or outside at night along with other lights and small props like skulls, etc. Worth every penny, and I can't wait to use this in my display! :)
