    These Halloween animatronics are the bomb!  They are so cool I love how they all move, light up and say spooky things! Nothing better than trick-or-treating with your kids and seeing how fun and creative people can be.  We don’t have a ton of kids that come to our house but I am thinking of buying the giant spider and spider webbing, I think my kids (and the dog) would get a huge kick out of it and it would be pretty simple to put up.  Great ideas, thanks for sharing.

      So happy you found this article about cool Halloween animatronics useful and I am so happy you liked the selection.  There really are some amazing animatronics out there to liven up your Halloween, enjoy the giant spider, your kids (and the dog LOL) will love it!

  • Henry

    This was exactly what I was looking for, every year we have about 25-40 kids that come to our house for trick-or-treating from about 5:30 till 9pm when we turn our light out.  Although I do like Halloween a lot it has become such a chore to get up and answer the door for the entire evening.  I love the idea that I could set up the Spooky Butler and just fill up his tray with candy and have a sign that says “Just Take One” I could also monitor the scene with my Nest camera to make sure everyone behaves.  The kids would have a blast and me and my wife could relax and enjoy the evening more. This seems like a win-win.  Thanks for giving us this idea, I can’t wait to try him out on our porch next to the front door!

      Great idea Henry, I am so happy you found this post about cool Halloween animatronics helpful and I think that is a perfect use for the animated spooky, creepy butler with his tray, your trick-or-treaters are going to go nuts.  My friend used this butler to hold drinks at her Halloween party and it was the hit of the party!  Thanks for reading and Happy Halloween!

    Great article about cool Halloween animatronics. Me and my family LOVE Halloween, our house is in the center of a very busy trick-or-treating neighborhood and every year we gets hundreds of people. Our entire neighborhood gets into the spirit and we try to outdo each other and we compete for prizes.  Lets just say, it is very easy to go over the top! So that being said,  I am always on the lookout for something cool and unique to add to my ensamble, I really like the Scorched Scarecrow and I think I have to buy him for this year’s mayhem, he is too cool.  I have not seen this guy before so thanks for sharing, these really are very cool Halloween animatronics

      Hi Ann, so happy you liked this article about cool Halloween animatronics and WOW I wish I lived in your neighborhood. that sounds awesome.  I love decorating for Halloween and scaring trick-or-treaters but I am lucky if I get 40 to 50 kids, let alone hundreds.  I usually have one or two animatronics in my ard and next to my door, I love watching people’s faces when the animatronics move and they weren’t expecting it.  Enjoy Scorched Scarecrow he is super-cool, you are going to love him!
