Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Halloween Party Prop Knew I had to have this for my home office/library, and was not disappointed! The moving keys and carriage take it to the next level of party decorations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality for a great price! I couldn't believe the price that I got this for. This is one quality piece that is worth every penny. I've had this now for 2 years and keeps working perfect like the day i received it. It's definitely a crowd pleaser at my annual Halloween party. Don't hesitate in grabbing one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Spooky!! I got this last year and to me it it one of the best props from Grandin Road. It was a hit at my Halloween Party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve had this a couple years but just used it for the first time. I LOVE it! EVERYBODY loved it! Like others I wish the sound was louder. With other sound effects (or more music) it’s hard to hear. But I still gave it 5 stars. It is so realistic everybody thought it was a real antique (until I fessed up). I will be using it next year in the “study” of Black Owl Manor or will it be Zultana’s Black Raven Villa in Venice?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made our Halloween Party Checkin Table GREAT! What a cool piece! VERY unique. Love the motion and the look! It is kinda weird that the keys move UP but...that's ok. Unlike most of the other Grandin things...this item is not loud enough! With the subtle key press noises and carriage return I wish it were a little bit louder! The item is very heavy and you can tell there is quality. I'm not sure I'd recommend this item at the full price but if you can get it on sale like I did...JUMP ON IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally bought it. I wanted this a year ago and held off because of the price but seemingly in marketing the magic words are 40% and free shipping. What can I say - this piece is utterly charming. And what I like best is that the sound is subtle and not one of those pieces that will drive you out of the room by the end of the party. Very heavy, substantial piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome prop I bought this last year and it’s a very simple but impressive prop. Very quiet and motion activated. I don’t know if it was improved for this year , but mine doesn’t have the correct keys moving to reflect what is on the paper- H E L P M E. Still a great prop, but this bugs me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunted Typewriter Haunted typewriter!! Just exactly what I thought it could and would be! Have placed the haunted typewriter so that every time I walk past , the haunted typewriter goes off; reminding me that despite chores, ringing cell phone and consultant work, The commitment to work to finish writing, daily, has to be addressed. Thank you!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it It looks wonderful. However it is a bit pricey for what little animation there is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunted Typewriter - Amazing This is so amazing...I love it absolutely. I have already ordered a second one for my granddaughter. You won't be disappointed at all with this. Do get the mice too - that really makes the set and people coming into my house can't get over how fun it is to have it just start typing....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not metal It is a nice and cool item,but it is not metal which I thought it would be. The 'H' keeps getting stuck but it will work every other time. It will look good in my witches lair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome purchase! Really clever. Looks very cool on the desk. Wish it was a little louder. Not sure if it has a volume control. Didn't check that and won't get it out again until it is time to decorate. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great prop I love this prop. The inventor had such a great idea with the typewriter. It's going to look great with my other decorations. I love the look & detail of it. I gave it 4 stars because there was only one down fall, you can barley hear it which is disappointing because it's so awesome. My other props will drown it out which takes away from the awesomeness. It is a little pricey for not being able to hear it. Put not hearing it aside, it's a great piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spooky Prop I purchased the haunted typewriter for halloween 2016. It is nicely made and works just as shown in the video. I'm totally satisfied and happy with my purchase. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice vintage looking typewriter prop Unfortunately, my typewriter suffers from a bit of a ghostly spell (or hex?) and types backwards (it types P-L-E-H instead of H-E-L-P), but I guess it will just have to add to the mystery. Personally, I don't mind as much, because for my particular use of it, my guests aren't going to be studying it up close and personal. I will have so much going on around it that no one will even notice. Although, the OCD in me notices it, but eh, it is what it is. GrandinRoad took care of me nonetheless, so I can't complain. My only true negative is the volume -- I'm surprised at how extremely low the volume is. Most of my animated props are so loud (obnoxiously loud) that I have to modify them by putting a piece of tape over the speaker, but not this one. And since it's just the sounds of a typewriter, vs. music or a loud spooky voice screaming at you, you really wouldn't mind it being loud, but ironically they made this one pretty quiet. The visual aspect of this prop is pretty great though....love the vintage look, but I did knock one star off for the few flaws it has. Hopefully you'll get one that types forward instead of backward....seems to be hit or miss there from what I read in the reviews. I also agree with what someone else said about price. It is a bit overpriced at regular price, but not bad if you can catch a sale.

Does the "paper" come out? Can it be replaced by something with a different heading???

I get that the included paper has the different help fonts preprinted on it... I just want to know if I can put something else in there.....
Asked by: nygrrl
The paper is affixed to the platen. The platen has a hole in it that sits in the typewriter. I would imagine the original paper would get ruined if you tried to remove it off the platen.
