Great surprise prop for first scares on the way into a haunt

Comments about Spencer's 2.5 Ft Hay Bale Popper Animatronics - Decorations:

I love Halloween and the 2.5 ft hay bale popper is definitely worth the money! Easy to put together. The bale is actually a wire cage with plastic "hay" covering that ships flat. The sound volume is adjustable or can be plugged into an external speaker. The actual size of the hay bale is: 30" W x 17" H x 19" D. The pumpkin head is 13" high with a 15" diameter. The pumpkin head rises 13.5" above the hay bale when set off. A very sensitive sensor starts some sounds which get the victim's attention and then the pumpkin head shoots up, stops at it's top for about 2 seconds and then slowly goes back down to the bale. The switch is under the bale and although a bit hard to reach without tipping the hay bale back, once it is in it's position of "on" , or "step pad", then all you have to do is plug it in the wall to operate it.
The only drawback may be that once it is put together it is more difficult to take apart as some parts connect one way for stability and have to be unscrewed to take apart. I suggest pulling the electric plug halfway through it's cycle when it pops up to keep the spring un-tensioned for storage.

I have not opened it yet, I have many ( 35 to 40). animatronics that I decorate with every Halloween, it is my favorite holiday and I always go all out. The first one I bought years ago was the Chest Ripper, and it is worn out now. It was my favorite of all times. Are you ever going to make it again? I sure would like to find one.

      I got this with gift cards I got for Christmas (I am a Halloween anytime person). It is amazing! I knew the pop up was coming and it still made me jump a couple times. I recommend this to anyone wanting to up the game at Halloween. You will not regret it. It is made well and seems very sturdy with how it is made. I look forward to using it next Halloween season.

                Comments about Spencer's 2.5 Ft Hay Bale Popper Animatronics - Decorations:

                First I will say this: I have actually purchased this prop! I own it! It seems as though Spirit allows people to submit reviews when they clearly state that they do not own the item and they are only basing their review on pictures and videos they see on the Internet. That seems to be an unfair opinion. Now, with that said, I love this prop! It is very durable and of very high quality. The pop up action is very scary and unexpected. I've triggered it to pop up more than a dozen times and it still gets me every time. The "hay bale" is completely framed in metal, making it very solid and sturdy. The pumpkin is constantly illuminated, adding to the effect. This product is highly recommended for any home haunt, Halloween party, or for on your door step for trick-or-treaters.

                  This was a nice addition to my collection the pumpkin flickers when you have him pluged in like the incinerator the instructions were not too clear but you'll figure it out very huge the picture makes it look small but if you get him you'll say "he's HUGE!" The only issue I had with him was about halfway down the sound stopped I just pushed on the volume nob and fixed it the hay bale is well constructed the pumpkin is made out of a thin plastic will definetly scare some people!

                    Good instructions. Feels pretty flimsy but held together well while being fired ( via footpad) probably 25-30 times in a haunt. Plays about 2-3 seconds of soft music before popping. Pumpkin is always lit even when not triggered.

                    An amazing prop bought this from the store when there was a sale and cracked it open and set it up. It is an amazing prop using a metal frame that adds a ton of support. Its great but sometimes it breaks and the burlap gets stuck in the motor.

                    I love Hay Bale Popper! He is very nice and already scared quite a few. Once I came home with the 1st one, his sound was muffled and all messed up. Spirit Halloween took it very well and gave me a new on and it works awesome. I would give it 5 stars BUT the only problem is my first one came broken right out of the box. But I totally recommend this to anyone!

                    Awesome for the price only problem is after it's triggered it takes to long to pop
                    Up. When testing it I walk right by it and it pops up after I'm way past it. I would return it but I'm to lazy and my kids like it anyways

                    It looks good far away, up close pretty cheap looking. Used batteries and plugged it in, had a mine of it's own when it wanted to work. Nice concept but cheaply made.

                    I have purchase may things from the spirit store and generally I'm very pleased with the things I have bought , the bale hopper was a great addition to my collection other then after an hour the spooky sound no longer worked and was frustrating, need to have the ability that if you purchase on line you can go to one of the local stores for help to replace. Not sure if I will make any more big purchases from spirit seeing this happens a lot on my props

                    My son really wanted this animatronic. It arrived in a timely manner, he put the hay bale prop together and after trying the hay bale on four different tries, the hay bale began to make a loud noise from the motor (a loud ticking). We unplugged the animatronic and have not tried it again since. I am disappointed. I believe I will wait to purchase any other items.

                    Product did not work as advertised. I paid way to much for a plastic hay bale that definitely did NOT POP. Not even once. I reached out to customer service and they were no help. Just sent me a return label. Of course, I have to unassembled the entire thing and find/pay for packaging because I recycled the original box too soon. I should have heeded the other reviewers that said it didn't work.

                    Worked once and now it only makes a clicking noise, I also bought a devil last year and the speaker no longer works on it, for the prices we pay you would think it was better made stuff, I've decided to buy from a different site this year

                    Poorly constructed. Stopped working properly after the first few times it was activated. Very disappointed. I purchase a great deal of "Stuff" from Spirit. I am concerned about the quality of this product and if this is becoming the norm for products from spirit
