Interactive Dueling Banjo Skeletons 4.1 5 138 152
Just OK The players performed admirably for a short time. Then the head movement on the skeleton with the smaller cap stopped working. So, that's OK. I set them up outside on Halloween. The temperature dropped to about 60 deg and they quit working altogether. Brought them back inside and they started working --- less the head movement, above. The electronics is quite temperature sensitive. Not mentioned in their instructions. Don't use them outdoors when it's chilly! November 12, 2014
Playful Piece in scary setup I bought this for the 2014 Halloween season. I kept them inside until Halloween night. They are a people pleaser for sure and very entertaining. They are one of my few "not scary" decorations so I hope their durability is good. So far they have functioned perfectly I look forward to many more seasons with them. November 17, 2014
really Cute they are well made and great price waiting a week before halloween. It will be part of several of the animated figures from Grandin Road November 19, 2014
They were the focus of attention! Our little visitors, and their parents, watched the dueling skeletons with fascination and delight! We had two short folding step stools that we placed the skeletons on so that their feet touched the floor. Looked great! The only two things that would have made them perfect, was if their mouths opened and closed when they talked...and if a volume control could be added. November 13, 2014
Love these guys! Used these for a Halloween display and they were a huge hit! Our family has renamed them the "Bonz Brothers"! November 17, 2014
mixed feelings I purchased the dueling banjos Halloween 2014. They arrived fairly quickly, seemed fine upon unpacking, but one of the fella's eyes didn't work..... I am thinking about sending them back because they are a bit spendy. They are real cute, but I was disappointed about the eye not working............ November 12, 2014
Dueling Banjo Buddies Great addition to my halloween porch decor. Love em! November 15, 2014
Fantastic Fun I am going to leave them up awhile These guys are great. They do need a little light but that is easily resolved. Bring a big smile. I walk buy and say hello boys and they start playing!! Great Fun for all ages. November 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!

Answer: 
I never leave my animated decorations out at night., but I put them out for the doration of the time trick or treaters visit on Halloween. From about five to ten. If I had a front porch that was protected from the weather and thieves, I would leave out for about a week.
