Bought these as stocking stuffers. Really energetic spring to them. The quality was above that expected from the price. Good buy!

I just bought these for my son's Kindergarten class Halloween party. I was pleasantly surprised with these! I thought that maybe since they were so cheap they'd be kinda cheap looking too, boy was I wrong! These are really well made and extremely cute! The only thing that happened to them was when we got them all out of the bag some of the springs had come off. It wasn't hard to find the ones that needed their springs and my 5 year-old simply put them back together. Even my 2 year-old could do these and he loved them too! Great buy!

fun Product- quality is not great- but not bad
product is fun- pops up after a few seconds. but the top portion can come off of the bottom portion. not a big deal- you just put it back on.

I bought these for Halloween goodie bags. They looked cute, and the price was right. I tried them myself and could only get one out of 4 to work at all. Several arrived with the spring separated from the figure and couldn't be used. All in all, they were a disappointment.

I used in pinata at halloween party. They were very cute, small and the kids loved them...most of them popped up a few fell apart but all in all great purchase.

Cute, too bad only half worked
Bought a couple of bags (24 each, so 48 total) for my 2 kids' classmates. The ones that work are super cute; my kids, 9 and 6, both love them. Unfortunately, after testing them, 11 in one and 12 in the other bag didn't work. Oriental trading sent me another bag at no charge. 18 worked in that bunch, but that still leaves me short to cover the two classrooms.

Kids love them --
My kids love these toys and I've bought them in their many iterations for years. However, I always buy extra because sometimes they don't work (the seal is off) and in this purchase at least four were in pieces.

Super Cute and great value. I ordered them now for next year!!
They seem to be a little more substantial that some of the other little trinket items in this price range.

Hilarious, but need better quality control
These pop-ups are just adorable and really fun -- when they work! They need better quality control. In one batch of 24, 10 didn't work at all, 3 were iffy, and only 11 "popped" consistently.
The little figures are on a spring with a suction cup at the top. When you push the figure down, the suction cup is supposed to adhere to the base of the toy for a few seconds until the spring overcomes it and the toy jumps up several inches into the air. When they work, the effect is great. When they don't work, it's because the suction cup didn't stick to the base. Then you get nothing at all, or sometimes the (the iffy ones) the toy pops up immediately when you remove your hand, which spoils the effect.
For some reason, in the two batches I bought, the ghosts worked the best (and I think they're the cutest). The pumpkins hardly every worked, and the bats often worked, but they tended to stay down a REALLY long time, like a full minute, before they finally popped, so people would lose interest. I only got a few witches but like the pumpkins, also seemed to have a poor working rate.
BTW, I took some of these to a volunteer event involving dogs and the reaction of one dog to the mystery jumping object was hysterical! But be careful that a dog doesn't swallow one of these, of course!
