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!

Super Cute - ordered them now for next year!!
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!

Super cut and work well!
I bought these to give out to the trick-or-treaters, and am delighted by the quality for the price. I took a few to decorate my desk at work, and my daughter decided she needed some for her room, so now I may need to get another bag!

Kids and adults both love these
Sadly, the pumpkin jumped the best. Some of them would not stay down...but most of them worked well. The characters were cute (not scary).

Great for co-workers

Adorable but have quality issues
These are a huge hit with the kids, but make sure you order enough extra as many came broken, and did not work properly.

Fun prize addition
We used these to make up prize bags for a couple of contests we were having at our Fall Festival. They were perfect and the kids had a lot of fun playing with them. They were cute characters and made the prizes fuller.
