Comments about Spirit Halloween Doll Wind-Up Key:
This key was purchased to complete a lifesize windup doll costume for Halloween 2017.The key looks 'dimensional', and we were able to spruce it up a bit with a simple application of spray paint. Lightweight plastic is used for the key, but it can appear fairly solid with a bit of work.Unfortunately, as others have observed, the motor gave out almost immediately. Any stress to the motor housing appears to be too much. We made the purchase in full knowledge that the motion aspect might not last the night, and were prepared for the ultimate failure. If you are hoping for a robust prop that will last for multiple uses (or even multiple hours), this may not be a purchase that you should make.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

doesn't run continuously
This windup key was exactly what I was looking for; hit the button, the key turns, hit it again, it stops turning. Only problem was, it stopped working correctly about 40 minutes after I started using it. Now it turns, but only when you hold the button down. Could be worse.
Great for a prop

I bought this key to go with my Halloween costume, which was a gothic lolita style doll. It looked fine, and got compliments while trick-or-treating.The thing I would recommend to the makers, is to replace the elastic string straps with something more sturdy, and not so stretchy, because it kept bouncing and wobbling on me while I walked, and I didn't want to put it any tighter because it was already tight, and I didn't want it to snap and break.I would recommend a design similar to backpacks, which would allow a more sturdy strap with friction, and also be adjustable like a backpack/belt/purse. I didn't want to tear a hole in my costume either, so I just wore it outside of my dress, which is black... so I also recommend having an option with black instead of white fabric. I was ok this time, because my dress had a cape which hid part of the base.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It looks really cute but it doesn't work. The motor seems to weak to turn the key. It stopped working after the first couple turns and now I am stuck with a key that doesn't turn. It was for my nine year old daughters costume and she is so upset.

Would not purchase again
The doll wind up key is cute, but it never worked properly coming out the packaging. We weren't too upset because we figured it was a novelty item anyway, but then when she went to put it on with her dress we weren't able to stabilize it to her back without it leaning downward. It is poorly designed to stay horizontal. MIND YOU - the motor will not work when the key is horizontal. Overall, we were impressed with the aesthetics, but not impressed with the application or quality of the product.

Only using 1 time, might work for my need
I had to get a 2nd one because the first one would stop spinning if in the correct postion and spin and the baase was layed flat. The store refused to take it back as they said it was online only, they wouldn't even look at it. It is not an item that can't be returned to the store. The 2nd one came with the base of the battery compartment stripped. I had to hold the clip to open it in order to get it open otherwise the screw just spins. 2nd one does spin in all directions.
Needs better engineering
It worked for 5 minutes and died

I am very happy with the my purchase. It is very light and cute! I am using it as part of a costume to be a wind up doll. The young lady at the store who helped me order it was very sweet and very helpful.
