The Floating Ghouls are a series of Halloween decorations produced and manufactured between 2002-2010. Each ghoul is suspended from a black pole with eerie blue lights. The ghoul moves up and down while playing a certain soundtrack (usually moaning). Versions from 2002-2007 had 4 lights, but versions from 2008-2010 had 2 lights. Some variations of this prop had light up eyes. Single String Based Versions were made from 2009-2013.

  • The Skeleton and Donna the Dead have been remade for 2017. The bars has four lights, a stopper-clip put on the head string, and have a different shape to the 2002-2010 ghosts.

Knowing Issues and Fun Facts Edit

  • 2006-2010 versions of the Floating Ghosts were known to snap easily, usually only lasting a couple months between strings. It is possible to replace the strings, of course.
  • Occasionally, strings will get tangled and will not lower.
  • 2008-2010 versions' hand strings will sometimes go out of sync (one lower than the other) and you will have to disconnect the side pole that is already at the top and hold down the reset button until the other hand gets to the top.
  • 2002-2007 bars are thinner than 2008-2010 thick bars, and their buttons and switches are on opposite sides.
  • The Purple Zombie Skull may have been released, just not well known.
  • 2006-2010 ghosts have a sticker in the battery compartment with a date on it. This is the date the specific ghost was manufactured. 2002-2005 ghosts have this sticker, but without a date on it.
  • the mummy and skull were sold at target from 2008 to 2010. The boxes in 2010 showed they have light up eyes. However, the actual item itself does NOT have light up eyes. Could be a prototype picture, a mistake or possibly, an extremely rare variant.
  • the floating phantom is one of the hardest floating ghosts to find, and was only sold at spirit and Spencer's in 2007 (the last one in stock remained on the online spirit site until 2012). There is currently only one video of it on YouTube. The black scary ghost however is harder to find.
  • The black scary ghost has only been seen 3 times so far.
  • 2002-2006 ghosts have bulkier hands. 2007-2008 ghosts have flat hands. However, this excludes the mummy, skeleton, skull with hair, black Donna and the zombie skulls.
  • The 2002 version of the white scary ghost has a unique glitch where at the end of it's activation the audio will either cut off or become distorted.
  • Gemmy has remade the scary ghost and Donna the dead for 2017. They are referred to as "Hanging Ghosts" on the Gemmy website, and "Floating Ghosts" on the Canadiantire website. The skeleton is sold on while the Lady is sold at Lowes (both USA and Canada).
  • The 2017 ghouls are prebuilt, and as opposed to removing the ghoul from the bar for storage, the ghoul and bar are permanently bound together.
