Comments about Spirit Halloween Crossbow with Arrows:
Bought for Christmas gift after Halloween was over. Safety is stuck on and it wont fire. My son is very upset. Christmas present that he can't even play with. Piece of junk and waste of money. Thanks a lot.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This was a gift for my husband's birthday. He wanted to feel like a kid again so what better gift than a toy crossbow? He was excited and took it out right away just to find out that the safety is jammed and he can't use it! The trigger doesn't even work. So bummed and since the stores are closed we can't even exchange it.

This was very solid, not flimsy like most props you buy for Halloween costumes. It was perfect for the Darrell costume!

My husband had fun playing with this on Halloween. The suction cup arrows stuck to the windows but not much else. Does not come with a strap.

I used this crossbow for my Daryl Dixon costume, and it is perfect! I wish it came with a strap so I could carry it on my back, but fortunately, I was able to make my own and it was very easy to attach it. It really does launch the arrows, not incredibly far, but it's still cool! If you're looking for a costume crossbow, I would go with this.

Looks great but is easily broken
Bought this for a daryl dixon costume, and it looked great and was lots of fun to use..while it lasted. the crossbow trigger broke within the first 2 hours of using it and the front handle snapped by the end of the night (that was easily fixed with glue) its a great replica for a costume but dont expect to get much firing use out of it past the first time you open it.

Used for a walking dead party

Perfect to top off my Daryl Dixon costume. Still not totally full-sized, but much better than any toy. I can take this one to work without worrying about getting fired.
Completes the look
By Zombie fan
from Las Vegas, NM
The crossbow is a really neat accessory. Got it to complete a zombie hunter costume. Downside is that it looks "too real". Obviously not good for kids and wearing outside. Still it was fun to shoot the suction cup tipped arrows at some boxes.
Needs better package
By Your Mom
from Memphis, TN
It is very realistic.My only problem was that the packaging was really bad. The box has an open part on the front which isnt really that bad except that the screws for the front end for the bow part are not screwed in and I only ended up with one out of two screws and now I have to go to a hardware store and find one since its not a very common size screw.
from Denver, CO
This crossbow is so legit, I am afraid to take it out to my local zombie crawl without putting some orange tape on the end haha. If you are looking for a realistic crossbow, look no further. I'm also using it for a game at a Walking Dead party, (for adults) and am certain it will go over well and be fun for everyone to shoot targets with. Definitely worth the $30.

Great prop from the price!
from Littleton, CO
About Me Adventurous, Cosplayer, Costume Maker, Trendy
This is the absolute perfect prop for my Daryl Dixon/Walking Dead costume for upcoming Halloween and future conventions. It was the perfect finishing piece, and one that I was concerned about finding at a decent price without ending up with a under-sized unrealistic toy. It's the perfect size for an adult, and incredibly real looking. So realistic looking in fact that I wouldn't recommend taking it anywhere that doesn't allow weapons as it's entirely black, including the ammo. It also has a surprising amount of power, not enough to cause any pain, but still could be dangerous if not shot with the suction cup arrows it comes with. However, it is just plastic, and I could see it not holding up under rough or constant use, so just beware. But at only $30.00 you can't go wrong with this!
They need better packing

Poorly packaged and the front sight was broken off during shipping. Brought it back to my local brick & mortar for an exchange and they did not have the item in stock had to keep the broken one for an event.

Can't Miss With This Crossbow!
from Centralia, Wa
I was truly surprised by this crossbow. I bought it for my son to use as part of his Daryll from Walking Dead Costume. This thing looks "REAL"! It does shoot bolts with suction cups at the ends, about 15-20ft. I'd reccommend caution if buying this for a kid or teen, due to the fact it does look like a leggit weapon.
Extremely well made for the price

About Me Adventurous, Imaginative
As soon as I saw one in the store I just had to have it. After using it I had to have another.This is a legitimate compound crossbow, although a bit weak (but it's a toy). It features a foothold handle to use while pulling the string back. The arms fold down for easier storage. This is perfect for practice if you are interested in learning how to handle and use a real crossbow.The suction cup bolts are of good quality and it shoots them roughly 25 feet.The only downside is it doesn't have a holder for the bolts, meaning you need to carry them separately or make or get a quiver for them.
