Hanging Cobweb Mummy
Cool and spooky BUT don't cut the plastic hook
I bought this to add to the Halloween decorations we have for Halloween and our yearly kid's party. Haven't put the batteries in but looks spooky and cool. The one thing I wish I hadn't done was cut the plastic piece that looks like it is part of the packing when I opened the package. That is all there is to hang it with so don't cut it!!!!

Very, VERY cool!
Purchased this giggly fellow for an all-out Halloween extravaganza I'm planning this year. I've not yet hung him up, but did take him out to see his workings. SO cool, guys! He stretches out, and looks like a huge person stuck in a spider's eggsack or some such thing. If you bump into him, he jiggles and emits these demonic laughing sounds, and his eyes glow. I'm going to hang him from a tree branch overhanging my sidewalk. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

This guy is awesome for the 40$ price tag. Don't cut the plastic tie...then hang him with fishing line from a tree---he eerily sways back an forth, and looks solid, even though he folds up like an accordion for easy storage.
Great buy, def recommend.
You do have to get right up on him to activate the eyes, but I don't even keep batteries in mine bc he looks so cool just hanging there.

Great buy for the money!
I purchased this for our company halloween party and it did add to the decor. It worked great and was life size and weighed light enough to hang on a wall, which was great.

Made it work
Purchased this last year. Doesn't activate without LOUD clapping or if you hit it. Hung it on a branch and connected fish line to it so we could make it activate when kids walked under it. This year we are thinking of lowering it more so it's in peoples faces and buy more spider props to put on it.

I like this prop. The ONLY problem I had with it was the fact that, while it does shake and the eyes light up, the motor makes noise as the battery shakes inside. I tried wrapping more spider webbing around the area in hopes of muffling the rattle, but couldn't. So instead I just left it to hang next to everything else. It still looked neat even though we didn't turn it on.

I researched a lot of different outdoor Halloween decorations before purchasing the mummy. I thought that I was a getting a good deal. I was expecting a mummy that makes noise, shakes, and eyes light up when people get close.
I hung the mummy on my front porch so it could be shielded from the weather. Within a couple days, it was windy and raining. The head dis-attached during the first wind. Then, I realized that you had to be within 8" from the mummy's head to recognize that I person was there making sound. I didn't want trick or treater's to mess with the mummy, so I couldn't move it any closer to the door. I feel like the sensors should have been better and that it should have been better constructed so it could actually be used outdoors.

Spooky party guest
I purchased this to hang in front of our trellis beside our front door and it looks amazing there. The body collapses down to fit into a box for storage which made me worry, somtimes that makes them look cheesy when they are hung but not this guy. The way the frame is makes him look like a full body with arms and everything. The spiderweb wrapping is true packaged spiderwebs so he picks up leaves and stuff so I will have to clean him up before storing. the handing tab on the feet is just a little plastic loop so in the Iowa wind I reinforced it a bit with twine and glue. The sensor is not too sensitive so he doesn't go off all the time which is great and the moaning, shaking and glowing eyes are a great effect. Love him to bits.

I don't know if my sound works or not - for a week I've been enjoying the appearance in the light and the dark. It's spooky in both, especially with a black light.

Great Halloween Decoration
A bit pricey but a whole lot of fun, this mummy is one of the best things I've ever bought for Halloween decorating. It will work perfectly with my spider theme. Seven years ago I had bought a huge rubber spider from OTC, so when I saw this "guy," I knew they would go well together.
Fortunately my front porch has the perfect corner to be able to set this up outside where it will be protected from weather, especially wind.
The sound and eyes that light up work well. As far as the shaking goes, only the head is noticeable.
Compacts nicely for storage. I plan to store it in the plastic bag and box it came in.
