Yard Sea Monster is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It will break...caveat emptor Great looking unit...was really happy to get this to add to my yard. Unfortunately, if you're putting this on your lawn you will soon find out that there is a 99% change you will break the part where the anchor screws into each of the three sea monster pieces. It's just made of plaster, and there are anchors that screw into the bottom of the unit. So because the screws are supported only by the plaster, you can't push the pieces into the ground while the screws are in or it will just break through the plaster. Picture trying to drive a nail into a wall using a piece of drywall. Instead what you have to do is push or hammer the anchor into the ground, and then try to screw it into the sea monster piece. This is unbelievably difficult because the screw is only about 1/8th of an inch, and each piece is about 1 to 2 feet wide. You can't see the hole, so you have to just "feel" your way to thread the screw, and then you have to walk around in a circle holding it perfectly parallel to the ground. Trust me...the only way to do this is to screw it in first and then push the whole thing into the ground when connected. So, what you have to do is hammer the anchor into the grass and then move the anchor around in circles so that the holes for the anchors are large enough that they pose no resistance to the anchor when you try to push it in with the sea monster piece attached to it. And then...you guessed it, it's not steady in the ground anymore because the holes has to be made wide enough to be easily pushed in. Short version...don't buy this unless you're putting it in sand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Kraken in Progress I bought 3 . They look great. one arrived damaged. Be sure to check the styrofoam for the stakes. Handle with extreme care. They are not heavy pieces and if they get toppled on anything hard, they will break or suffer other damage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some problems Very cute and looks like the picture. But thank goodness they stand on their own. They have the same metal footing as the Witches Legs which I have had and used for many years and have a solid base. The serpent sections are hollow so any pressure to anchor them in the ground (and I mean soft ground) and the screws inserts pops inside. I even tried inserting the rod first and then attaching, same thing. Good thing the base didn’t break. They look good and should last for a few Halloweens. I’ll have to figure it a way to secure them so they don’t get knocked over.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One arrived broken, replacement had paint flaking We have had two different units. The first was delivered damaged the second had significant paint flaking off the dark blue area on the hooked tentacle. Disappointing quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Bought these to go with a pirate theme and they are perfect! Great quality, easy to install with good secure metal stakes. I expect to get years of use out of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece! I'm biased because I like all things octopi-ish, but this is a great piece to have. Solid pieces which set into the ground with enclosed attachments. It's been windy at our place and all three sections have held up fine. Great sculpting and coloring. I am definitely happy with the purchase! Now I just need seven more...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Major design flaw Looks awesome but has one major flaw. It's sturdy and has metal stakes but screw assembly in base isn't metal so it breaks off. For the money it should be a metal base not a resin base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Addition to our Pirate Theme I was so upset I missed out on this last year that I snapped it up when it was barely discounted this year. I was so impressed with it that I bought a second one during the 50% off sale. One of the pieces arrived cracked on that one, but I kept it rather than dealing with the hassle of a return. I do wish they were solid as I can see them cracking in a few years. It also would have helped them getting staked into the ground. They're still a great addition to my skeleton pirate ship display this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material...don't push down too hard. I got a great deal on this during a six hour sale and was surprised at the weight and quality. I would say though, when you are pushing it in the ground, put your foot on the stake. Do not push down on the creature itself. There will be a gap between the ground and monster. I pushed too hard and the stake went right up into the piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great props I am so happy they have this product again this year, I procrastinated last year and before I knew it they were souls out, I was so disappointed, I looked all over the net to find something similar with no luck, but this year I purchased asap and happy I did, they are the perfect size and will put my display over the top awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome...Just Awesome!! The 3 pieces are just better than you can even imagine. They have found their place in the front part of my pond sitting in front of our pirate ship. I'm in love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and surprisingly realistic This magnificent creature arrived in a large box that contained three fairly heavy and durable pieces, and it also comes with anchors for attaching it to the ground. The decorating possibilities are endless. I wish I had multiple creatures with tentacles bursting out of the ground everywhere, in order to make it appear massive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tentacular Display!! Bought this last Halloween and it was a huge hit!! Bought another to extend my "Dead Sea" theme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sea Monster Swims in Ormond Beach My front yard needed some character since it’s mostly river rocks and ornamental grasses. We are 600 steps to the ocean so this sea monster gets noticed as it swims along the front patio. The wall next to the patio has an octopus on it with suckers on its tentacles as well. They go together well colorwise, too. Although it can be windy, it seems stable using the stakes included to anchor each piece in place. Folks who see it laugh or smile as they go by on their way to and from the beach. A British family visiting on our street would stop to point out ‘Nessie’ to their children. So happy with this item; perfect for my yard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better in Person I wanted to buy this in 2018, but the price tag was a little steep and I was hoping for a sale. But I kept thinking about this decoration for our koi pond at Halloween and by the time I decided to buy it, it was already sold out for the season. I stalked the listing on the website from last September 2018 until April of 2019, when it was finally back in stock. I ordered it at full-price and it was back-ordered until July, but I didn't care! When it finally arrived, I was quite pleased with the detail of pieces. They are beautifully painted and the colors are more vivid than I anticipated they would be. I am very excited to release the Kraken in October!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome piece This octopus jumping out of the ground is awesome. I have received multiple comments about it ! Specifically because it looks real!! The movement of the piece is fabulous it will be around for years to come. Made of quality resin and has staked for the ground I love it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looked great but too fragile I buy from Grandin Road every year for Halloween...always live their stiff but I bought this last Halloween, (already getting ready for this one) we always have a great Halloween party and was looking forward to these creeping through my flowerbed but they cracked when I tried to stake them into ground. I was able to use them, just cracked...didn’t break but that’s too expensive for a decoration that may only last one or two seasons :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Very happy with this product. It looks great and appears fairly sturdy so hopefully will hold up against sun and weather. I just hope they make a bigger model in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even more impressive in person!!!! I am a huge fan of Octopus. When I saw these this year in the Halloween Shop I could not order them fast enough. I do a lot of entertaining outside and they are going to be terrific setting the mood. I'll be using them not only at Halloween, but when hosting events with seafood menus and island themes. Beautiful colors, great finish and such nice quality. Based on other purchases from GrandinRoad, I had a suspicion that they would be terrific and ordered two sets...so glad I did!!!! Once again your Halloween Shop NAILS IT for the perfect distinctive décor item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Seaworthy Specimen Just bought the yard Sea Monster to add to my haunted pirate theme this year for Halloween. The item is well constructed and sturdy. The stakes that is comes with are nice too but the ground in my yard is too hard to use them. Since they are a good weight (but overly heavy) I was able to set them on the ground without them falling over. I already have them set up. 3 months early but who doesn’t need a sea monster in their yard year round! I would say the price might be a little on the steep side but I got the item on sale. I like my purchase!

Is it possible to understand  why this item & others in the past have become “unavailable” even when new catalogs arrive that feature that product. Was there a problem with the manufacturer? Were a limited number of units ordered? Something else?
