Halloween Animatronics & Animated Props & That Bring Your Porch to Life
When it comes to Halloween decorations for the home, porch, and yard, grim is in! Neighborhoods everywhere are engaging in a friendly competition to create the most strikingly creepy Halloween landscape possible.
While it's perfectly fine to install the same static graveyard scene year after year, or static zombie invasion, or haunted house with ghosts that never move, how much scarier will your Halloween display be when the ghosts, goblins, spiders, and other key props spring to life?
Enter Halloween animatronics, the superstars of the Halloween decoration set. These are the motion-activated animated props that appear to lunge trick-or-treaters on your doorstep, or flail their limbs and flash their eyes from the bushes, or emit all those awful noises that send chills down your spine.
They're the props that people remember. When you see a viral video of a Halloween shopper or party guest falling over with fright, it's safe to assume that Halloween animatronics have caused the reaction. Unexpected motion and sounds from a horrifying prop can lead to bizarre and sometimes comical responses!
Here you'll find a delightfully gruesome assortment of animated Halloween props and creatures, from small hanging ghosts to life-size skeletons and spiders with luminous eyes. Here you can shop for Halloween animatronics activated by sounds or movement, animated door knockers that issue a warning to trespassers, and light-up inflatable props for the yard.
Party City offers three types of animatronics:
Plug-in Life-Size Halloween Animatronics
These giant props require full AC power. Position them close to an outlet or extension cord, ideally on a porch to shelter them from the elements. Life-size animatronics typically "do" the most of any props: they're motion activated, they're usually equipped with sound, and they move in ways to trigger a startle response. Choose these if your budget allows it, or if you're looking for a prop that runs all day and night without needing new batteries.
Plug-in Animatronics with Optional Battery Power
Slightly smaller than the full-size props, these motion-activate animatronics can run on power from an electrical outlet or on batteries, giving you the freedom to position them in areas without power. Choose these if you want to avoid extension cords crossing the porch or lawn and would like more control over your layout.
Battery-Operated Halloween Animatronics
Battery-operated props are relatively small, as in the case of animatronic doorbell knockers, dropping spiders, and flying bats. Choose these to complement the larger props, or to accent the porch, trees, or party setting.
