About Me Adventurous
Arrived ahead of schedule; pretty easy to put together. Will be another great feature for my haunted house. She is a little rocky when rising but it adds to her personality.

About Me Classic
This prop was my favorite of 2014 Halloween. We got her a tent put her in the doorway of the tent then decorated the tent with cattails,corn stalks, moss, and creepy cloth. Added a bunch of details like shunken heads, Voodoo doll,crows,swamp critters, snakes, alligators around her, and baskets filled with herbs and spell making items. Also made a lighted fake fire in front of her with a water myster in a cauldron with all kinds of spell bottles and other cool things. Also used a Green Fire & Ice light on the whole scene. She was a huge hit. She worked the whole night on steady on. Love this prop. If she ever breaks down I will buy another one.

Scary and funny as _ell
from San Tan Valley, AZ
This prop is awesome and totally hilarious. She is so funny but creepy and scary too. We have a lot of fun with her and laugh a lot.
I would definitely by her again.
I am using the Swamp Witch in my very large Halloween display. She looks great. I'm very pleased with her movement & he sound track. The only thing about this animatronic that is a little scary is the amount of small things that can throw her off track. When we set her up we used extreme care do to the reviews that we had read. I believe without the reviews & not knowing what to watch out for we would have 2 or 3 problems that could damaged her so she couldn't be used. We were careful so far everything is ok. I love the product & would recommend her to anyone. Just be cautious in handling her & setting her up.
Love the Animatronic Decorations
The only downfall to this product is that the arms don't open the way they should. The arms need assistance in opening/spreading apart. Other than that it is a good product. It is everything that I expected, except the arm issue, and I can't wait to display it on Halloween!!! As a matter of fact, I just ordered the "Undead Granny". Very excited to see this one!!!!
Swamp Hag Mechanics
By Reaper Collector
If you are not mechanically inclined then these are going to be harder to work with. These are designed to stop moving when the upper and lower limit switches are closed by a gear acutator on the back of the gear box. The newer versions have a plastic shield on the lift pulley and also should have an anti strip gear inside like the Rising Creeper Doll does. I have re-timed mine almost precise, but their is a bit of gear travel and string stretching with every use among other things. A better way to do it would be to bypass the gearbox limit switches and make them interact with the elevating poles instead . That way you know exactly where the right positions to stop should be regardless of string stretching. All Seasonal Visions rising props should have that upgraded just to be safe and to help prevent gear grinding. If your gears aren't stripped and it clicks at the top then you can try to add some slack at the bottom by untying the string and letting some lose . The string might be glued. I personally have never had any of my rising SVI Props strip. My advice is to run it without the costume a few times so you can see if it's set up and working right. It is important to make sure nothing is catching like wires, linkages, or the costume.
Love her but she doesn't seem to "sense" and click on much
from Sugar Hill, GA
Man, I love this lady! She shorts out a good bit and doesn't seem to recognize the motion but when she talks, I love her story!
I would recommend Swamp Hag to anyone!
I love the fact that she can come back apart after you set her up! Swamp Hag has a creepy appearance and is fairly well made.
she will work well
Everything I expected it was. It speaks for a long time...longer than I thought it was going to. Only thing i had an issue with is the foot pad....has never worked and that is a little disappointing.
from Leeds, Al
She looked great outside with my swamp display that I made . I also made her a tent to help keep water off her and made her a broom .

It was a big hit in a haunted swamp
Swamp Hag holds up
By King of Halloween 2015
from Houston, TX
I used this Hag at my front door with the step pad for Trick or Treating, and then I used it indoors for the party afterward.I like the design of this animatronic most of all, as it is a very creepy looking witch. The dialogue is so-so, but because I got it at a good price I thought it was worth it. I like the adjustable volume and the fact that you can choose how this witch is activated.Some people state that the arms do not work as they should, so I would report that in general mine worked. There were a few occasions that the arms did not open, but I found if you manually pushed them (without using excessive force) they would open and close correctly afterward. The rising feature always worked well, but when it would go back down in position it would rock a bit, so I imagine it won't last more than two more Halloweens. It is a bit noisy when operating, but because I had creepy music on and her volume turned up all the way you couldn't hear the gears moving.

Gonna be great
By Halloween queen
I really do like the Swamp Hag. She is made well and came in great shape. The only thing that was a little bit of a disappointment was that her hands do not open/come apart quite like they should. I am going to do like another reviewer suggested and put a small bungee in there to help..... I just have to figure out how he did it. Other than that I am excited to use her this year.
Cool but very loud motor.
By Tiki Traveler
from Memphis, MI
Adding a little more to my indoor decor. Went with the swamp hag this year. She is very cool. I had to turn the motor off though - very noisy when she stands. Setup was easy. Very good quality.

About Me Maker
The Swamp Hag was easy to assemble and looks great. When placed on a short pedestal to elevate her an additional 15-18 inches, she stands to a commanding height and looks amazing as she glowers over the crowd.The only weak bit was the spring that lifts her head and spreads her arms. It isn't strong enough. I added a small bungee and it works great now.
eyes glowed for one cycle than went out, I had to adjust the spin wheel multiple times to make sure she extended fully, and her head and arms do not lift and open fully to give the full effect.
Satisfied but disappointed
I purchased this item yo help further my decorating theme. The item arrived promptly and box was in good condition upon assembling the item I discovered that the mechanism which lifted the head was missing and that one of the lights that illuminated the eyes was not operating. I contacted customer service about these issues and was told that the item was discontinued and that they had no more in stock, I was then offered to return item for full refund or they could refund a percentage of the purchase price. Since I really wanted it for my theme I decided to retain the item and get a percentage of my money back. So can't say I'm not satisfied just wish the item would have been complete.
Unpacking the product, I was surprised to find the metal structure to be rusted and corroded. It took a lot of adjustments to make her arms move properly. We ended up shortening the spring on the head which seemed to help.
By Loves Halloween
I loved this swamp hag. Put her all together and she worked great except the sensor never worked so she just ran all the time. Worked great for our halloween party for about 5 hours. Then she stopped going up and down. I was able to fix the white cord that wrapped around the gear and rewrap it. It worked again but for a very short time and that was it. Gear for movement up and down is poorly made and they need to redesign and this would be an awesome Halloween prop. Want to buy another so badly but know I would probable have the same problem after reading all the other reviews.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Poor quality in the gears. Broke the first time i used it.
from Phillips ranch CA
Used in doors one year work for about two hrs. The gears broke and now the witch Does not stand up. I am looking to purchase new gears. Please advise on where I can purchase new gears. Will not recommend unless gears are heavy duty.
Looks and sounds good
This prop looks and sounds good but plastic gear broke immediately in effort to raise her.
Should have read the reviews
from Seymour, IN
Guess I should have read reviews... Fell in love with this online shopping. Purchased in August more than 90days in advance of Trick or Treat, just one of five major animatronics we purchased in 2015 along with two we designed and built on our own. Expanded cemetery/morgue and designed an entire exit through voodoo swamp section around her and her lyrics complete with water feature (frogs are amazingly hard props to find around Halloween) and voodoo witch hut. Even designed our costumes around the cemetery voodoo swamp theme. Very disappointed when malfunction started during set up. Arms caught and would keep the unit from fully extending. Rigged with a rubber band and went on to swamp set up. When trick or treat started she initially needed physical coaxing to work and then she gave up the ghost all together. We put her on a platform so she could at least be viewed then finally unplugged her to stop the pitiful clicking while she tried to coax wary trick or treaters into her lair. So sad. **Here it is, almost August again and I'm pulling her out of the basement to try to revive her for a more croak filled All Hallows Eve 2016. Wish me luck. I'm going to try the bungee suggested by MagicRon
