Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peek a Boo! Easy Step2 We were first attracted to the KidAlert Ghost because...well...Ghost! My twin boys are obsessed with Ghosts as the moment. I had been wanting some sort of "kidalert"-like product for awhile because we live at corner of a cross street and have a nice circle drive that I haven't been comfortable letting the boys play - we don't see too much traffic but it just seems dangerous. So "Boo" was a very welcomed addition to our holiday decor this year. It was very easy to put together. Honestly, I usually leave the building of new things to my husband, but I felt very comfortable putting this together myself. Although the boys were immediately interested and wanted to help. It came in two pieces that snap together so not much fuss. The directions recommended putting sand in the base, but we didn't have any and haven't had any issues with sturdiness so far. Batteries not included for the light, but the light is a great addition. The boys LOVE looking out the windows from the living room in the evening and seeing it glow from the lawn. It really is a fun piece for the halloween season (or if you're house has been decorated as such since June for certain little peoples' birthday and enjoyment). For something that's not meant to be a toy, the boys really enjoy busting him! Ha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Halloween Addition We already have the 2 of the Step2 Kid Alert signs that we use throughout the year. We purchased this particular sign due to its festive appearance, and its built in LED light. We had this little ghost out last night for Halloween, and it worked wonderfully! :)... It also doubles as a night light for our daughter! :) Definitely recommending this product to anyone who enjoys decorating their house / apartment for Halloween.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loved it! The kidAlert Ghost was a big hit at my house. My son who is two years old absolutely love it. My daughter who is only 7 months enjoyed it as well. The kids played with it in the house and on Halloween we put it outside at the end of our driveway, when lit up its bright enough for passing cars to beware. People who were trick or treating though it was so cool, several kids stopped to take a pictures with the friendly ghost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Festive, & Practical! Before received the KidAlert Ghost, I knew it would be a hit with my son, who is obsessed with anything and everything Halloween! He is especially in love with ghosts, so much that he decided months ago that he would be a ghost for Halloween. The KidAlert Ghost has been a perfect addition to our Halloween fun. My son dragged his "ghostie" all over the yard showing him spiders on their webs in our gardens. He loves that "ghostie" lights up, and he says good night to him through the window where he sits in the garden in our front yard. My daughter, who is 19 months old, gives him plenty of hugs and kisses. Needless to say, he is very popular, and as a person that works at night into the early morning, I look forward to seeing him as I pull into our driveway! The KidAlert Ghost is not only an adorable Halloween decoration, but is also a practical product that can alert cars that there are little trick or treaters nearby. We live on a busy rural road, and do not get any trick or treaters on Halloween, however, I do think it would work perfectly as a safety mechanism for people who live in communities where there are a lot of children out on Halloween. I can see the red reflection tape with my car's headlights long before I reach our driveway. It’s also great that the KidAlert Ghost has two sides, so my children can see him facing the house, and he is facing the road at the same time. The KidAlert Ghost is very visible in the daylight and as well as at night, which is probably the thing that I like the most about the KidAlert Ghost, aside from seeing the smiles on my children's faces when they see their "ghostie"! Thank you Step2 for letting me test this item as a part of the Step2 Toy Tester Program!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Spooky Decoration! I bought this because I love Halloween, and it is adorable. It looks great and can double as a safety precaution when I am playing outside with my kids. Plus, it has my yard half-prepped for Halloween by being an easy piece of porch/yard decoration (I get lazy with my festive side lately). Before I got the base assembled, it spent a few days in my living room. My two-year-old learned to say "ghost," turn on and off the light inside of it, and danced with it (she and the ghost are about the same height). This product seems to have opened the door to even more imaginitive play for her. The only tough time I had assembling it was when I was trying to pop the cap in after filling the base with sand; I bent the plastic edge a little, but otherwise it was fine. It does not take away from how the product works or functions--it just bothers me in my brain because I fudged it a little and I know it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Idea, Cute Ghost I really like the idea of this ghost caution sign, but if I put it out near the street, I'm afraid it will be stolen. I might have to drill a hole in it and tie it to something. I gave it only three stars because I wasn't very happy that a week after receiving this, it went on sale for $15 less than I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made me stand out on Halloween It’s a cute product that helps remind drivers to be careful on Halloween night. I put mine in front of our house and it let trick-o-treaters know that we had candy. It lights up nicely. A lot of parents loved it and many kids stoped to take pictures with it. Can’t wait to use it again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cutest ghost in front yard This product did exceed my expectations beside being a cute ghost it's functuality will be great considering the way people slow down when they see it. Step 2 should really do a little more advertising of their great products. Not everybody goes out online and searches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun addition to Halloween The ghost is very sturdy and a fun way to light up a walkway or caution people thee are kids around. I love that it has a switch to conserve the light and it suggest adding water or sand to make it heavier. We actually didn’t use either and it wasn’t a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute idea, but not exactly effective as an alert Thank you Step2 for letting me test this item as part of the Step2 Toy Tester Program! My first impression of this product was that it is great quality and a very cute concept for the fall season. It was easy to assemble, but does require sand to weigh down the base so wind or kids playing with toys don’t knock it over. The light does a nice job of drawing attention at night when it is dark outside, but if under a street lamp is less effective. There is also a reflector sticker on each side to help it get noticed by drivers. The battery and light bulb are protected, but I would not leave this outdoors all the time-especially in rain for fear it would malfunction if it got wet underneath where bulb/battery are. I did feel once it was on and it was very dark out, it almost blended in with our neighbors lighted Halloween decorations. The main benefit should be an alert for drivers to slow down, but it just ended up looking like a decoration. I feel like the size and shape are easily confused with other decorations you see out for Halloween, even the “Boo” stickers are not authoratative... more cutesy...and as a parent I want something to let drivers know clearly they should be mindful kids are present. I know Step2 makes another safety alert that is much more impactful when placed at the curb/street and has a flag to make it easier to catch eye level of drivers. This Ghost alert could use something bright sticking out of the top to enhance it’s height. I do see this being very useful for trick or treating, because the more alerts the better in the streets that night, but kids are really not out once it gets very dark in my neighborhood. I wish this alert had a dual purpose to serve for during the daylight hours too for people like me who would like something that could be used during the day and if the need arises at night. In conclusion, I’d say for the great price this would be a cute addition to Halloween decor and useful for trick or treating, but it is not something that could serve a long term outdoor safety alert need most parents have.

Does this actually light up? Meaning with a bulb batteries or a cord?

Asked by: Md1978
The ghost lights up with batteries and a bulb. There is a switch to turn the light on and off. No cord.
