Poor quality item,died completely after jaw issue

Comments about Spirit Halloween 6 Ft Swinging Scarecrow Animatronics - Decorations:
Worked fine first halloween, jaw did not work last year, this halloween the item just buzzed when we plugged it in which most likely means the control board is shot. The item was stored indoors in a dry cool part of the house so it was not a moisture issue.Was going to order a few more animatronics from Spirit Halloween but now we are most likely going elsewhere. Kids are bummed that this otherwise cool item no longer works at all, just an expensive quiet ornament now.I would avoid buying this item as it is of very poor design.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Budget Shopper
Purchased new in box. Put together and never worked. Store gave me a new power supply and that did not fix the issue. Store employee told me to call there customers service and they refused to send out a new one or replace the broken part which I believe to be the main box.

Stopped working after 1 year
from Ramsear, nc
Loved it until the power supply on the cob board burned out due to poor soldering at the factory.
Great animatronic that's scary and funny at the same time
The swinging scarecrow is a really great animatronic. I actually have it still hanging in my shop as I think I will keep him out all year!!
Yes, I would buy this again!
Works well! Sayings are really funny/scary! My only criticism would be that it makes a significant amount of noise while it is operating which takes away from the sound and motion it makes. Cool prop though! It was a hit at the party

Very good but could be better if the mouth worked.
Looks great and tells 5 jokes about the Farmer. It's easy to set up and overall a great animatronic. Only issue is that the mouth does not move as it talks. It does sometime, but not consistently.

This is the best Halloween item in my decoration set!! We named him "Simon" and he is the "talk of the neighborhood!!" I received him quickly and as described!! I WILL purchase future items from "Spirit Halloween!"

Very creepy. Good quality prop, this one is built to last year after year. Ropes only to hang, so be prepared to have a branch, a bar, frame, etc... from which this monster can swing. Affords much opportunity for creativity and fun.

Looking forward to this decoration for 2017
I have not gotten to use this animatronic yet. I bought one of the tree props from a local store last year and got this at the end of last season to hang on the tree this year. I look forward to seeing it in action as it looks really cool and is much larger than it looks in the pictures.
Creepy and fun
from Middleton Mass
The Swinging Scarecrow is a wonderful addition to my collection! I find him funny but creepy too! His mouth works really smoothly compared to some other props. Although his mouth stop working I managed to fix it and works great. He has 5 creepy and funny saying that makes me laugh every time! He has great detail and is a wonderful prop all round!

Great Scarecrow Prop
Great swinging prop for the price. One of the best Spirit Swinging animatronics, as he is well detailed and has a great design. The only con is that he can be a challenge to hang as he needs two hooks and his voice is can become somewhat annoying after awhile. Overall, though, I am very happy with him.

Very Cool Prop
from Clearwater, FL
I got Swinging Scarecrow in store in August 2016. I am very pleased with him. He is a very creepy prop. His detail and appearance look very awesome. I have never actually hung him up to be swinging, but in my haunt, and my Halloween Room, I just sit him down. He looks really creepy that way, and look like he is crazy person rocking back and forth. His phrases are very awesome and his voice and laugh sound very psychotic. My only issue with him is that he breaks very easily. I take great care of mine, and he broke the day after Halloween. He still "swings" but his mouth no longer moves. I have heard it is an easy fix though.

Very Big and Scary!

About Me Classic
The Swinging Scarecrow is well known for the excellent mouth movement compared to other large Spirit Halloween swinging animatronics. He's very well detailed, and I personally love his animation and all of his 5 phrases. He features Volume control, and the option for a step-pad and try-me button, which comes in handy when displaying him. The only con i have is that although his mouth movement was improved from the other swinging props, it is likely to break if not handled very carefully. Overall great addition to my many other Spirit Halloween animatronics.
Awesome decoration. People love it
Great for haunted corn fields
I bought the scarecrow and when I put it together it was manufactured backwards sort of, once I was able to Jimmy rig it. It seem to work fine. Halloween was cold in Northern Ontario so I noticed he would rock but his mouth wouldn't move. Also with the wind I was constantly out fix him. Lucky though I was decorated as the dead farmer.
I would buy this item again.
This is a very good animatronic. You have to fasten 1 small bolt & nut, 1 small screw. Easy to assemble. I think that he has 5 funny sayings and they are all good! Most of the kid's loved him.... a few would not come any closer ;-)

About Me Adventurous
I was so excited for him but I used him for a matter of minutes and his moist stopped working. I was so disappointed he was one of my favorites this year. I really want him for my collection I hope they fix him and re-release him.
Fits perfectly in our cemetery. Swinging from a tree branch above the headstones and special lighting make this totally awesome.
ONE OF THE BEST THIS YEAR!

About Me Trendy
Love this prop, I just got it, hopefully the mouth wont break like on others
He Was a Swingin'
Other than the intermittent loss of jaw movement when talking, this is a great gag for any haunted house. When combined with other animatronic scarecrow and jack-o-lantern elements, the swinging scarecrow makes for a "bootiful barnyard".
Wanted ever since the Sneak Peak
About Me Conservative
I finally got him for my birthday and I would say he's worth it but I don't know because I heard the mouth breaks a lot but mine hasn't broke yet. But I'm not a big fan of hanging props but I just had to get him. Instead of one hook he has two which makes him much easier to hang. His head is made out of a hard plastic and his face, collar, and top of his hat are made out of burlaps. He swings back and forth and moves his mouth while his phrases are playing. So I recommend you get him discounted on November 1st - 4th just because of his mouth.
A true Halloween charm.
Wish it could be an outside item. Love the spirit it gives to the Halloween decor.

The jaw stopped working, took it back to the store and they had several arleady returned for the same reason.

Best of 2016: Swinging Scarecrow
Okay, this prop is my favorite of 2016. It seriously has beautiful detail. He's realisticly sized and comes with some of the best phrases. He's great for any setting. He moves very well and his mouth also is very advanced. ... My only problem was my first purchase, the mouth broke after a few uses. But, I messaged Spirit right away and they helped me instantly. It was very good customer service and I sincerely respected their replacement at no charge. This is an awesome prop!
