BRAND NEW in the Store Display Box…SCREAMING DOORMAT…Pressure Sensitive–Just Place it Under Your Doormat…Battery Operated…Too Much Fun!
Shipping Weight: 2.4 ounces
I put this under a spider door mat at the entrance to my front courtyard. All had to step on it to enter. We had many shrieks from the kids. This helped make my house the hit of the neighborhood.
Good, almost too sensitive.
Does a very good job, a little cheesy, but meh, its for trick or treaters, take what you can get for the price. Don’t put too heavy of a door mat over it, or it will constantly set it off, as the sensor is a bit sensitive.
Just what we were searching for…
And we had been searching for a while. We received one as a gift a long time ago. It lasted more than a decade. This one is much better. It has an on/off switch, an assortment of things it says, and it hides right under the regular doormat so no one suspects anything until they step on it. The seller was incredibly helpful and the doormat arrived within hours of our ordering it.
My porch was done in black lights and scary haunted house music, so it was already spooky approaching it. I had an extension cord crossing the walkway to light decorations in the flower bed, which could have been a trip hazzard. So I laid this mat over them, then laid a regular door mat over it to cover the extension cords and the mat. I had an old creepy monster mask – the kind you wear. I put this mat speaker on a 4 ft stake stuck in the flower bed and put the mask over it so when the kiddies stepped on the mat the sound came from the mask. I also lit a glow stick and stuck it inside the mask so it glowed red out the eye holes.
The voice quality isn’t great on this BUT it totally worked to scare the heck out of my trick or treaters, adults as well as kids. It was very entertaining watching them approach my house. Most jumped and screamed, then started laughing. I don’t recommend it just to put under a door mat for a non-scary house. I totally recommend it if you decorate scary and disguise it like I did!
Loved it, and so did the kids!
This was a great addition to our family holiday this year. All the people who triggered it liked it, and the reactions were sometimes hilarious.
I highly enjoyed scaring and confusing people on halloween. This was extremely easy to make work and was a lot of fun.
Heavy Door Mat on top and works great
I was worried about getting this as we have a heavy door mat (about 10 pounds) and I did not want to have to get a separate Halloween mat. I unboxed the item and placed it under the mat, thinking just placing the mat on top would set it off. It did not, but any person walking on the mat set it off. The sound is a little tinny sounding like it comes out of a can, but what do you expect from a small speaker box. The speaker box is off white, while everything else is black. The wire attached to the speaker is about 3 feet so you can hide the speaker like we did behind our flower pot that is on our steps. We had it out for about 10 days and the battery lasted the whole time (I would say about 175 times it was triggered over the 10 days). Worked every time.
CONS: Sound is a little tinny.
