Interactive Dueling Banjo Skeletons 4.1 5 122 135
Until the Banjos Start To Play I have purchased one of these two years running for two different people. The first person I bought it for, so absolutely loved them. I haven't heard from my gift receiv-ee this Halloween so don't know but had Bone Jet I purchased for her last year on display during the Halloween season last year. Very cute...I have made a suggestion for next Halloween for Rascal Vamps...yep, you guessed it Rascal Flatts singing Life Is A Highway or maybe re-lyric to be Life is a Flyway, I'm gonna Vamp it all night long...and I will think of more....suggested they be dressed to the nines with bat wings that expand and contract with the song...think it would really sell!!!!! October 10, 2014
Ned & Jed Skelly ...3rd year no longer works 1st year worked great ... we named them ned & jed skelly. 2nd year the red eyes on the 1 skeleton and head no longer worked, but they still jammed. this year have to plug and unplug to get to working ... sensor doesn't work. so was great while it lasted. I stored each year in a separate container by themselves about the size of the box it came in and was very careful. they also stayed inside until about 3 days before Halloween. so I don't think it's weather related. was considering taking them after this year to an electrician, but how much will that run me. for the price I expected a good 5 years. October 13, 2014
Awesome Purchase I had been wanting to order the Dueling Banjo Skeletons for a while now and finally ordered them. I should've ordered them when they first came out these was an awesome buy. My son loves them, and so does the rest of the family. I am sure we will have many years of enjoying them and hearing them play. October 21, 2014
Big Hit The Dueling Banjo Skeletons have been a big hit in our neighbor. They perform as stated. October 13, 2014
My Favorite! These guys are my all time favorite Halloween Haven purchase. I have little ones (4 & 7) so I have to run things through the scary filter - luckily these guys have a little creep factor and a lot of entertainment. The kids love to crank up the volume and dance to their music. I've got them set up in my house on hay bales with crows, snakes and lit grapevine pumpkins, a tombstone forest scene in the back ground and lit tree branches and curly willow stuck in the hay bales - they look awesome. Don't hesitate to buy these - you'll be glad you did! September 29, 2014
Great Fun! These wonderful decorations make me happy. I smile and sometimes laugh out loud when they play. I am certain that they will make a "hit" for Halloween. I play in a Banjo Band and will most likely take the 'Guys' with me to practice the week of Halloween. I know they would love to get out and entertain. October 3, 2014
Good purchase These Dooley banjo skeletons are really cute. They work great in the daytime with the motion sensor but at night do not work without lights. Had to put a string of Halloween lights up for them to work. Wish they worked in the dark with motion. Disappointed,they don't work at night. Too cute to send back though. October 1, 2014
FABULOUS iF YOU WANT TO PUT A SMILE ON KIDS AND KIDS AT HEART PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND ORDER THE SPECTACULAR DUO. PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS. I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET THE DUELING SKELETONS, A LITTLE NERVOUS AT FIRST READING OTHER REVIEWS, BUT DECIDED ON IT ANYWAY. NO REGRETS. LOVE IT. September 11, 2014

Answer: 
I use all of my (indoor) props outdoors!
How, I make battery packs that replicate the original wall wart that comes with each unit.
I'm an electronics tech, so if you are not sure about what voltage, polarity and plug to use, I would not suggest doing this as it would void your warranty. But it makes everything wireless with no extension cords. Not sure why the manufactures don't have this feature.
Some props come battery operated, with a plug in wall wort just in case.

Answer: 
The skeletons are activated by ekectricity. There is a plug that hooks up to one of the skeletons and there is never a need for batteries. Thats what makes these even better!

Answer: 
I have never been satisfied with light activated motion sensors as the light has to shine in front of the props and when you move in front to block the light they activate.
Seems these are the same.
Most of my props are in a dark area, so I hook up PIR (passive infrared) sensors that work by heat and motion, so no light needed, of course the banjo players do not have a (try me) button or jack, so I would be voiding the warranty. But at least they will work great!
