Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I’ve purchased two of these animated floating brooms and we all love them! They are exactly as described… They move in a random pattern, they emit spooky sounds and they are very creepy! PS: I did not receive an incentive for posting this review. I accidentally hit the select button and was not able to undo the checkmark.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Halloween Guests Loved It! Animated broom is exactly as pictured. It was a 'hit' at my Halloween party. I just wished the broom bristles were a little fuller in order to cover the base more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The reviews were correct! Glad I read them True to the reviews all the negative is correct. 1. It looks cheap, 2. It is SUPER loud! 3. The bristles shed, 4. You can see through it. All that to say what I am using it for all of that is a perk..I guess! It will be outdoors on a upper balcony so the volume will be great since it's outside, the sparse bristles won't be noticed, and the shedding won't be a problem because it's outdoors. Had I not read the reviews I probably would give it a 1. But the reviews made me aware of the flawless..personally I would say save your money unless its going to be used inconspicuously

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volume control This is a really neat animated broom, or as we call it, the “ broomba.” It does look a little cheap with the plastic handle, though. It really needs a volume control because the spooky sounds are so loud, you cannot talk when it’s on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE This broom moves around beautifully and I love it. The most challenging part of putting together was getting the tiny tiny screw out so I could insert the batteries. The instructions should have said insert batteries first before starting to put it together. That’s the only problem with this darling little broom except I do wish there were more bristles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Floating broom is sensor activated with scary laug Floating broom is sensor activated and has scary laugh. The reason for the 4 star rating is that the laugh is really loud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love its look of authenticity I'm so glad I was able to get this, missed out last year. Wish it had more broom on the bottom

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silly fun for Halloween. Funny and a decent concept. I wish it had infrared sensors so I could use barrier sensors like I have for my robot vacs. Then it could be on the front porch- that would be funnier. It is quite loud, so I took the advice of another buyer that put tape over the speaker to muffle it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but loud. Cute overall but extremely loud and broom portion was not as full as it appears here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Floating Broom I bought this for my Halloween Bookclub party. They got a hoot out of it like I expected. The quality could have been better for the price but I will keep it and use it for the Halloweens to come. I can decorate it and add stuff to it to give it character.’She’ will be around for a while I hope.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's cool but cheap looking Just like everyone said, it's spare in bristles, it's loud, and the hand looks super cheap (I managed to snap mine while putting it together but it's nothing glue can't help). I recommend having two people attach the base to the bristle portion as the bristles are meant to hide the machinery but that makes it difficult to attach. That said, it's cool. I do wish it was better. It definitely isn't up to GR standards. I'm sure there were a lot of parts swapped out for others due to lack of availability because of shortages and bottlenecks—but, man, it's a downgrade. We are using it outside in an area no one will be too close to. If I were using this for a party, I wouldn't get it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Floating broom Stick The twigs break off very easily. Love the cackle and the movement

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Floating Broom- sparse on bottom Sound effects are great! The broom is not as full as it appears in the pictures. Mine is sparse and you can see the base.
Date published: 2021-09-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's fun I love the look and concept, but not very well made. Stick snapped when we were screwing the handle on. Plastic is surprising brittle. Bristles shed off, especially as you have to dig through them to the power switch. And it is LOUD!!! Will take advice and put tape over speaker. Despite these pretty blatant flaws, I love the look of it and hope the tape (on handle and speaker) work out. Wish there was a "maybe" option on refer to a friend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money. Looks better in the photos. Not many bristles on the broom. Can see through them easily. Looks cheaply made. Little disappointed.
Date published: 2021-09-21
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks beautiful but way too loud Wheels need to loosen up and bit before it glides around very nice. We had to put tape over the speaker because it was incredibly loud. Looks great! The mechanics are pretty loud too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grating loud sound The sound cannot be muted or turned off. It would have been fabulous without any sound. We turned it off after 20 seconds.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK with a few tweaks I should have paid more attention to previous reviews. It really does look like a Roomba with sparse broom bristles sitting on top of it. Truth be told, it wasn't a big deal to add more bristles, but for the price, this should not have been necessary. It is true that the top of the base with the controls is more than easily visible through the sparse bristles, and the bristles do not cover the bottom of the base. I agree that the plastic handle makes it look cheap. On my hardwood floor it did operate as intended for the first few extended periods of use--moved at a nice even pace across the floor and quickly reversed when it came into contact with an object. After the first few uses, it was more likely to just stop and vibrate up against the object instead of reversing course. If you want to run this on carpet or concrete, you will be sorely disappointed. Even on my carpet with a very low nap it would not move more than a few inches at a time. Likewise when we attempted to use it out on the driveway. As others have said, there is no volume adjustment, and the sounds emanating from it are VERY loud (and I even wear hearing aids!). Taping over the speaker didn't seem to make a lot of difference. I really love the concept and was so excited about getting this, but due to the less than stellar appearance and the inconsistent movement over time in addition to the ridiculously loud noises, I really wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save you money The straw doesn't reach the floor and it like a Roomba with a stringy broom on top.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed I bought a animated floating broom from Grandin probably 15 years ago… the best addition to Halloween ever! I bought this one recently…very disappointed! It is not near as well made…it is messy…and way to loud. I want my old one back
Date published: 2021-10-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Animated Floating Broom Cheap!! So very disappointed, not up to Grandin Roads standards. Broom is sparse and you can see right through it. Breaks off every time you reach in to turn it off and on. Wish I hadn't purchased it. Will be ok for one season.
Date published: 2021-10-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Animated floating broom - let it fly away I will probably return it. Although I love the concept of it, it’s not as good quality as I thought. (And it wasn’t inexpensive.) There is a ton of glue on the handle but was broken and not attached when taken out of the box. Only one side of the broom has sufficient amount of coverage over the motion piece. The sound is good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but cheaply made and won't last long I am struggling with the because the concept is excellent. However, the price this sells for makes it appear well made and we'll thought out and it simply isn't. It really should be a two for one amazon or Walmart item, no more than half the current price. The broom stick is a cheap looking plastic, the broom bristles are already broken off in the bag and continue to snap off as you gently put it together and use it. The stick should be a bit longer so wheel base sits on easy. On/off switch should be on the side so you don't break more bristles turning it on and off, and it needs a volume button so u can use it indoors without taping something to the speaker to muffle it. Cute idea but it really wasn't critiqued before sale, just cheaply made. It makes me question the type of products Grandinroad sells as the prices are high but there is no quality or attention to detail here....I'm sure it won't last long.

Does the floating broom only play the witch's laugh sound or does it play songs as well & if so what kind of songs are they musical instrumental only or music with words?

My broom did not come with directions.  Having trouble getting the trap door open.  When I do, what size battery do I need.  And what do I use to unscrew that door.

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your interest in the Animated Floating Broom. To remove the battery box cover you will need a small Phillips head screw driver. This item requires 3 x AA 1.5V batteries.
