New Animatronic Clowns Play Tug-of-War with a Kid at Spirit Halloween

Spirit Halloween continues to unveil all of its 2019 product releases, today unveiling the new six-foot Tug-of-War animatronic that features two clowns playing a deadly game with a helpless young victim.

We’ve told you once, and we’ll tell you again: Clowns aren’t always friendly. These two buddies always stuck together when they were at the circus. Everyone could tell they were a little bit off, but it wasn’t until they were caught playing tug of war with innocent children that the circus fired them on the spot. They were the best of friends, but they always seemed to fight over who gets the child at the end of the night. Though they no longer travel with the circus, they still lurk in the shadows, waiting for a child to stray away from their parents. Keep your kids close, or they could be caught in the middle!

Standing six feet tall, the Tug-of-War animatronic features two clowns tilting back and forth in a tugging motion while they fight over the screaming victim in the middle. Each clown’s mouth moves as they speak and frightfully banter back and forth.

You can read more specs and all of the sayings the clowns speak, and watch them in action, below. Priced at $499.99 and scheduled to begin shipping on or before August 14, you can orders yours here.
