Wilting Black Roses is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Black Roses The Roses were a nice addition to my Dracula Room for Halloween. In bright sunlight the prop does show its artificial-ness, but under candle light it looks excellent! If I were displaying it in a bright area, I would repaint the vase portion. When the product arrived, the leaves were squished into an upright position, but I could get them spread around so they looked somewhat more natural. The sensor on mine works well, even in dim light. I like the organ sound bite; it was the perfect complement to classic movie monster decor. Although I'm often not wild about sound props indoors, I didn't think this was annoyingly loud-- but it wasn't in the main party area, either. (A little tip for others regarding overly-loud props in general- try a piece of foam tape over the speaker holes, and a little piece of duct tape over that.) Guests got a big kick out of activating the roses and watching them wilt, so the prop got repeated use. It functioned perfectly every time and was, as I said, a nice addition to the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defective This arrived defective. The earth-shattering glass noise worked, but not the wilting. Halloween was approaching and my husband can solder, so we chose not to return it and opened it up, finding that two wires had disconnected. Poor wiring job to begin with, as there wasn't much exposed wire to reattach and things are tight in there. Some things were just glued in. I suspect quality control here is poor, as a quick check at the factory would have found the problem. It doesn't look that classy, either --it is obviously plastic, and little effort was put into the placement of the leaves. However, we understand that Halloween stuff tends to be like this. I would give it one star for the inconvience and cheapness, but once we got it working and cut the obnoxious speaker wires, it's a cool and unique effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The wilting flowers won't wilt... I received this adorable prop today and was so excited to see it work. I inserted the batteries and turned the unit on and immediately the song followed by the breaking of glass occurred but the flowers didn't wilt. Tried again and again. Called Grandin Road and they are going to send me a new one. I hope the new one works because it is really cute and the music/breaking sound it makes are perfect. I am giving this a five star rating because I am assuming the new one will work..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun But Not Really Functional This is very cute, but small and it took a few times for the flowers to re-set. Just a decoration basically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wilting black roses in a vase I loved this item of Grandin Roads as it is unusual and has a wonderful sound of breaking glass and music just before the roses wilt then they will go upright again. I bought 3 of these as I will give two as gifts! Thank you Grandin Road for all of your unusual products for Halloween! I enjoy your online store so much and have told fellow co-workers and friends about you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like it,but it kept disappointing. VISUALLY-It is pretty cheap looking.The roses are basic fake flowers and the vase is obviously plastic and somewhat unattractive in general. FEATURES-It has a cool wilting effect that everyone got a good kick out of.It also has an extremely loud breaking glass sound,which might be okay as a prop in a haunted house etc.There is NO turning off the sound.We had to snip the sound wire. FUNCTIONALITY-The sensor is/was very fickle and worked randomly,whether we passed in front of it or not.After about a week,the flowers started to get caught on each other and prevented one or two flowers from retracting up.Okay..two weeks or so later it stopped working completely! It had fresh batteries and I even replaced them to make sure,nope. REDEEMING QUALITIES-I'd have to say none.I could have dealt with all of the other issues,because the novelty of it is pretty cute.That would be enough if it worked! I hate giving a bad review,but I'd like to possibly save someone from a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unusual and fun but overpriced These wilting roses are perfect for a gothic mantle were motion can be easily detected (the sensor works 3 out of 5 times. So far 1 of 3 units was replaced by Grandin Road for being defective. This is smaller than I imagined and the front of the vase (where the sensor is located) is actually decorated with a skull instead of the spider pictured (which is located in the back of the vase). The paint job is typically sloppy but looks fine from a distance (I plan to repaint these). The gothic sound is LOUD and cannot be adjusted and is preceded by a glass breaking sound (which doesn't really make sense). The mechanism that retracts the flowers is also somewhat noisy, but in party setting wouldn't be noticed. Overall it's overpriced for the quality but unusual and quite fun.

Can you turn the music off?

Asked by: Savannahfla
No you cannot. There is one "on/off" switch and that's it. No volume control of any kind. There are 8 tiny screws on the bottom that you can unscrew and snip the wire to the speaker if you want to permanently quell the sound.
