Good product with minor flaws
Comments about Spirit Halloween 8.5 ft Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Inflatable Decorations - Ghostbusters:
Good product with minor flaws. Blower is a bit undersized, but with limited placement options that's understandable. LED's should be brighter than they are. Now if they only had a 12 1/2-13 foot tall version!

Stay Puft Man was a big hit!
Was thrilled to get my Stay Puft man so quickly as I ordered him with less than ten days til Halloween. At first I didn't realize he had a zipper on his foot - I thought he was drunk as he kept falling over my hedges. Got him zipped up tight and he was ready to party. He blows up in just a few minutes. Kids loved him! We had a couple of very windy days and I'll likely invest in stronger stakes to hold him down (comes w two but they're fairly short and I broke one (weak plastic) securing him! Overall I'm very satisfied
Wouldn't buy it again
The fan died after 3 days of use. I had to pack it up before Halloween. Now I have to figure out where to get a replacement fan and how to install it. Not impressed.

About Me Midrange Shopper
If you can get this thing to stand up you're a better man than me!! It doesn't come with any stakes for the feet and has 2 rope stakes for the sides. Hello!! It stands in 2 feet what is suppose to keep it from falling forward or back?? The motor is so weak it doesn't even keep it fully inflated! Do not buy this product...my kids are so disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Huge and adorable!
so very cool!!! could use a little more on the air pump side but works.
Huge fun for the front yard
I bought the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for our front yard display for Halloween this year. He is huge and garners a lot of attention from people as they walk or drive by. If he came with more stakes and rope to hold him up I would've given him more stars. I had to use extra stakes and rope from my Christmas decorations to help keep him standing up. It took several attempts to get him to stand up without falling forward. I ended up poking a hole in the blue cape in the back and used a safety pin and some string tied to a stake to keep him from constantly blowing over. It doesn't really inflated on its own once its plugged in, I have to go and hold up the leg which has the fan to make sure it will fully inflate. He looks great in the yard and will surely be a hit on Halloween night with the trick or treaters.
Great Product, Not Enough "Accessories"
Super happy with it EXCEPT they only provide 2 stakes and 1 ~5ft-long cord. Entirely insufficient for securing down and 8ft inflatable to our lawn. We ended up using our own tent gear.
So far so good it's up and running strong
Needs more tethers
from Olympia, WA
This is such a cute inflatable. Unfortunately, as noted by other reviewers, it needs more tethers. I used the two (yup, just two) provided and those couldn't keep it standing. Luckily I have other stakes and tethers from my Christmas inflatable. The lack of tethers is highly annoying, which is why I give the low rating. Other than that, this is a great inflatable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Guest Services Response:We're happy to hear that you like the look of the the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man inflatable. Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you felt the inflatable needed more tethers. We'll have our Quality Control team take a look at this inflatable, and see if we can improve this for the future. We appreciate your feedback!
I would highly recommend this.
I was super excited when I received this (stay puft). It' looks great. And can't wait to display it for halloween
It's a unique fun product.
Will admit this is pretty awesome just wish the blower was a little more powerful.

Only lasted one season
this is really cute and really big. we really enjoyed it (and so did the neighborhood kids) the first season that we used it. Unfortunately, even though we packed it away and stored in the attic until the next year, it no longer worked. Checked for fuses, chords, anything that may need to be replaced, but nothing did. Checked online reviews and found others had the same issue.

About Me Midrange shopper
I bought this for two purposes:1) Put on my front lawn for Halloween.2) Use as an indoor decoration for my annual Halloween party.It had smartly positioned tether straps for it to be secured while on my lawn, and was the most positively commented on fixture at this years party!
By Joe Crooks
Best comment all night was a little girl trick or treating who said in the cutest little voice, " Bye Stay Puft, I love you Stay Puft" as she tried to hug it when leaving. It was a hit all night,but worth buying for that one experience alone
Cute but not very bright
By Elf on Shelf
from Knightdale, NC
This Stay Puft Marshmallow man looks like the one from the movie - unlike some being sold. However, the lights inside are not very bright and the motor is weak so he doesn't blow up as fast as many of the Christmas inflatables I have purchased. I am displaying him in my backyard which backs up to a greenway and he isn't as visible as I had hoped. Definitely not Gemmy.

Do Not Buy

Didn't last one season. Blower motor finally gave out and can't find a replacement one.

It has 2 tie downs, but 4 work better.
Sets the tone of a great party!
By Five-Oh Party Pro
Themed parties, immediate feedback with guests, a little pricey for the materials that it is made out of.
Not worth the high end price
By Halloween Fun
from York PA
I bought this item 3 years ago. First one that I got tore in 5 mintues then I returned it and got another one. The air pump they use is very weak. I also own a 8 foot blow up cat and that pump is alot better. Item is hard to stand up beause of how easy it can rip. I would never tell a firend about this item
By The Bat
very cool. it is a 2-d face not 3-D but looks great. has some balnce issuses that you have to figure out. I put him on the roof for halloween so was just slightly more windy than the ground. you can see it from very far away.

Stay Puft Won't Stay Puft!
By King of All Balloons
from Brooklyn, NY
I own several inflatables for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays. This is only the second one to poop out on me. The motor was identical in each, lasting only a couple of weeks. In addition, the LED lights were anemic and not enough to properly illuminate the inflatable. I am waiting for another company to make a replacement motor available with proper illumination. It is a great looking inflatable and deserves to be displayed properly. I do appreciate Spirit's customer service, however. They stood behind the product and replaced the damaged item... just in time for Hurricane Sandy!
Did not work!
Took a week to get here as expected. Packaging was in excellent condition. I removed Mr.StayPuft,no rips or stains. Plugged him in,fan motor did not come on. His lights came on,but the fan did not,even after waiting for 10 minutes.The outer wires were okay but I noticed in the electrical box controlling the fan, there was some loose parts. Makes me wonder if this was someone else's return. I never had a problem with Spirit before. It is on its way back to Spirit as I type this. I am also mad there wasn't a store opened this year like last year.
from Omaha, NE
Very easy to set up. I put this in my bosses office while he was at lunch. Great gag! I'm super happy with this purchase!
