If there’s one thing you can count on each year, it’s the fact that Morris Costumes/Seasonal Visions will always have a few not-so-creepy and child friendly animatronics to lighten things up on Halloween. Sure, you can find zombies, eerie clows and lots of other terrifying props all over the place, so it’s nice when you find one or two that you can leave out and not have to worry about scaring your own children half to death.
This year Morris Costumes is putting a new twist on an old favorite, the animated witch. She’s not that scary, I promise. If you haven’t seen her please check out the video below.
When activated the witch’s right arm moves and her eyes light up. She also begins to say one of several different phrases.
“Well, isn’t this a surprise that you’ve wandered into my neck of the woods. Has the journey made you famished? I just finished cooking up something fresh, ha ha ha… Oh, you’re better off not knowing who wounded up in the stew!”
“My, my, what a pretty thing you are. Come closer and let my weary eyes gaze upon you! Ah, not as good when you are close up, dearie. If you prefer I can turn you into a toad. At least your complexion would be improved. Ha, ha, ha!”
“Ha, ha, ha, ha, he, he, he, he…”
I actually like the new animated Witch prop. However, her voice and lines are very similar to the Swamp Witch that came out a few years ago.
The new animated Witch will run you in the $350-$400 range depending on where you find her. Keep in mind that you might find her online but you will likely have to pay additional shipping fees which brings the cost back up substantially. It’s not knonw whether or not the new prop will be in Spirit Halloween’s lineup for 2022. We will have to wait until the mid-summer before they announce all of their new props.
Please check back often! Lots of new stuff is on the way!
