Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Halloween getting closer and closer! We are just days away from Spirit Halloween announcing the new additions to their 2022 lineup. However, as a bit of a teaser they let us know that an old favorite will be returning this year. Our old friend Grim will be back this year and I’m pretty excited. I have to admit that last year, I wasn’t really that impressed when I saw him online. However, once I saw him up close and personal at the Spirit Halloween flagship store in New Jersey I quickly changed my tune. Grim is actually a pretty cool prop.

According to Spirit Halloween:

Watch out when the sun dips below the horizon and the dark blanket of night lays across your sleepily little town because Grim and his tortured, undead brethren rise to stalk the lives of the living. Cursed to walk the night for eternity, reaping misfortune and ghastly dread to anyone unlucky enough to cross their path. Don’t be fooled by their wicked sense of humor, or else while you are laughing, you might find that your funny bone, along with the rest of your skeleton, ends up part of their army – FOREVER!

When activated by a sensor or step pad, Grim’s LCD eyes light up as he begins to move his head up and down and side to side. His arms also begin to move as he begins to speak and say one of the following phrases:

“Your host is not here right now. They’re busy burying something in the backyard. But we’ll have loads of fun while they are gone. Hahahah! The night is young, and I’m ready to party! Are you?”

“You best be careful where you tread on this dark night, you don’t know WHO you will run into. Creatures and creepy-crawlies lurk out from every shadow. Why, I was just hiding in your closet with the other skeletons. Perhaps we let them ALL out for some fun Ha ha ha ha!”

“Ahh you look like death warmed over my friend. This is good! Soon there will be enough of us…and we will terrorize the living until we own this night! Are you with me? Tonight is ours!”

At $299.999 Grim won’t come cheap but he’s actually a really fun prop that is kid-friendly. It’s not that often that we see props that you can have out around small children.

Please keep checking back! More cool stuff is on the way!
