Set of Three Favorite Lighted Staked Halloween Ghosts 3.5 5 101 104
Wait until they improve them to buy them I bought these last month and they arrived quickly. Upon opening I thought they looked a bit flimsy in terms of their construction, but they looked nice and decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. I installed them this evening and quickly found that my first impression was correct. A couple screws, a small sheet of corrugated plastic and some very flimsy plastic domes all come together to give you very nice looking JUNK. They don't hold up to a slight breeze. I can't imagine what will happen if we get wind. Over all, I'm growing a bit disappointed in the quality of the merchandise from Grandin Road but this is clearly the worst! All they need to do is improve the quality and construction and they'd have a great product. My neighbor thought they looked great and asked where I found them. I told her and then showed her what they looked like underneath and the price. She said "oh, never mind. Those look like they'll only make it to the first week of October." September 19, 2012
So Cute & So Disappointing As a reviewer below, I waited for 2 years for these ghosts and ordered early to ensure I got them this year. They arrive packaged well and the fabric is a good quality heavy satin underneath with a more gauzy overlay -- very lush material. No directions come and there are little rods in the box that I couldn't figure out so after a call to Grandinroad -- turns out they are just cross rods you put in the bottom of the stake to help support it. Take care when pounding the stakes because even with a rubber mallet, we bent the top a little and then it's difficult to get the head on. The lights are so dim that you can't even see them at night; which was the most disappointing of all. I guess I could have lived with the unlit ghosts because they are so cute, but in wind and rain, these poor things just kept falling over because we couldn't get them deep enough into the ground. Sadly, I ended up returning them and Grandinroad was most gracious considering I had them for almost 3 weeks. October 21, 2011
Look good These came today and I set them up. They look very effective but not quality. All the flimsy plastic heads were bent from the box and I was able to 'pop' the plastic back out on all 3 of them, but one part of a head. The stakes wouldn't push securely into the head and I was cautious of pushing too hard in case the plastic bent again. Therefore, the heads are not securely on the stick. The material is good quality. I don't think these ghosts can handle being soaked each day by the sprinklers on the grass so I decided to put them inside (in plant pots). One of the ghosts had been glued wrong - the face is all lopsided so I will have to try to re glue it. The other two had the material aligned correctly. The lights won't last long. They should light up the whole ghost. I like the idea someone had of wrapping lights on the stick underneath so the body lights up. Over all pleased but I'm certainly glad I got them on sale and didn't pay full price. September 25, 2012
Still needs improvement I have the original version of your 3 ghosts and they were cute for awhile but started to fall apart after a few (maybe 2) years. When I saw that you had updated them with the faces and glowing heads I knew it was time to bite the bullet and replace the old with the new. The new ones are much better...however, It surprises me that they overlooked one important thing...The lights! There is only an on / off switch- they should have put them on a timer so they aren't on all day long. Now a days you can find seasonal decor that has a timer switch that has an on for so many hrs and off for so many hrs. I hope they are able to add that to their next version! I love that it uses batteries instead of a plug, but I don't want them on all day long. October 17, 2013
Absolutely Perfect I was really impressed with overall appearance and quality of the fabric. My grandson staked them into our front yard and whatever issues there may have been last year were fixed. The ghosts are very sturdy and were packaged great. They even came with 9 extra batteries!! I am so happy because I loved the images of these little guys and they are absolutely perfect!! August 20, 2013
3 lighted ghosts Bought these thinking they would be a great addition to our graveyard scene in the front. The two layers of fabric are good quality. The rest not so great. I bought two sets for 6 ghosts. 2 of the 3 in each box had bent/crushed heads that needed to be popped back out. 2 of the 6 the flimsy plastic head cracked so now I need to figure out a way to make them water proof. The plastic dome that forms the head is pretty poor quality. Seems more flimsy than 2 liter soda bottles. The stakes do not make a "click" noise as indicated in the directions so we will see how long the heads stay on the stakes if we get any wind. Overall my biggest complaint is the lack of some kind of timer feature. I had not really intented to go out and turn these on and off each night. With all the flameless candles and other outdoor decor that runs off watch batteries and has a timer feature I never considered that these would not. October 2, 2012
Cute, but flimsy We were so excited when we opened the box. The ghosts look very good - not too scary for little children. The problems started with assembly. The directions say the stake will "click" onto the head. The ghost head rests on the stake, but does not click in. They fall off easily when trying to get the stakes into the ground. Also, the stakes were so difficult to get into the ground - two out of three were damaged. It had just recently rained, so I expected the stakes to go in easily. We damaged the first stake just getting it in the ground far enough that it would stand up. The second stake will not stay extended. I should send them back, but I wanted to keep them up for the kids. I thought I would buy another set when I got them out of the box, but I would not recommend buying them. October 30, 2013
Ghosts finally in trash!! I love grandin road products. But I have had it with these ghosts. Do not buy them. First of all the cloth is super glued to to the heads of the ghosts and I have had to glue the cloth back on the heads over and over again. And if you have a wIndy front yard the cloth blows over the heads and you constantly have to drape the cloth over the heads. And it is impossible to get the steaks into the ground. I had my landscapers put them in the ground this year and they still fall over. And stink bugs love to make a home in the cloth. I was so irritated by them....I threw them in the trash last night!!!

Answer: 
The colors rotate between red blue and green. they automatically come on and continuously rotate. Note- they are not bright enough to light up the entire ghost sheet, its more a subtle effect around the head. I like this because they dont look cartoonish. there is also an option to keep the lights off.

Answer: 
The head has 3 disc batteries that you must switch "on" and then lights change continuously in shades of red, purple, blue, green. The outer layer of fabric has a sheen and the changing colors look very nice through it.

If I remember correctly, the lights are LED red, blue, and green. I've already packed mine away. There is a switch under the head to turn the lights on and off. They do not come on automatically.

Answer: 
The lights rotate from red, to blue to green. They are very subtle.

I didn't find them to be enough light, so I put a solar powdered light (mounted on a stake) under the skirt of several of the ghosts. The uplighting under the skirt which made them even more adorable.

I found turning the lights (in the head of each ghosts) on and off cumbersome, so I just left the lights on.

Extra batteries come with the ghosts and additional ones can be purchased. The batteries are common hearing aid batteries.

Answer: 
Each of the ghosts has three tiny LED bulbs inside the head. They gradually cycle from blue to purple, but there are stages of blue, blue-green, pink, and purple. Each ghost has the same colors, but not necessarily at the same time. The lights do not come on automatically. There is a switch on the underside of the head to turn the lights on.

Answer: 
My batteries worked for about 2.5 nights. 2 sets of extra batteries come with the ghosts and more batteries should be cheap to replace at the local hardware or pharmacy.

Answer: 
Yes you can. Problem is, you will be doing a lot since the batteries only last 4 hours per evening. Gets expensive buying the batteries!

Answer: 
They are standard LR44 batteries. My grocery store sells them. You might have to look around to find a bulk pack of enough LR44 cells to resupply 3 ghosts. Any electronics supply store will have them; most larger drugstores and grocery stores have them.
