1) "He ruined my marriage...." - Barry

Boney, as I like to call him, came neatly packaged in a nice cardboard box prominently tagged with a description stating he was fully posable. I bought Boney to hang in my garage (aka "mancave") because I thought it would be cool to have him hanging around with me and the boys.


Well, I thought it would be a shame to waste him solely on the garage. So I decided to introduce Boney to my wife. Bad mistake. 20 years has taught me nada zip zilch zero nuttin about marriage or maturity....

Boney had been sitting in his box in the garage hidden behind my other unattended projects. No one besides me knew he had moved in.

Boney, a good 5 or so feet tall, and fully posable, needed to visit our living quarters.

I decided that Boney shouldn't be forced to just stand around waiting for people to arrive home. So Boney found his way into the pocket water closet in our master bathroom. He looked so nice just sitting there on the commode. Like he was relieved... I figured my wife would come home, open the sliding door, see good ol' Boney just sitting there and we'd all have a good laugh

She came home late and used another bathroom before coming to bed. Never opened the pocket slide door. Just went into the master bath, freshened up, did her teeth, and then went to bed/sleep. Silent night.... holy night.... till approx 4:30 am at which point a shrill sound that not even the most dedicated horror movie fanatic has ever heard emanated from the bathroom. At first, I was bewildered. A heavy sleeper am I, but alas I was awakened quickly. Then I was reminded... shocked into recalling what was at the root of the insidious noises projecting from the torture chamber that once was my bathroom.

Boney never lost his cool. ... but he did lose his head, one leg, and several ribs. I too suffered loss, as the promise of any romance in the near future quickly faded along with many meals, help with chores, and other household activities.

Boney is made of a material that is not necessarily superglue friendly.... more experiments to come this weekend.

Moral of the story: the manufacturer of this product is clearly negligent in their labeling practices and owes me an apology for failing to warn me that this item is neither wife-friendly nor wife-proof.

Edit: Sept 6 2015
Well... ended up being able to easily repair Boney by gently sanding the points that required glue. Superglue is doing a fantastic job of keeping everything together strongly. Just sand both sides of the repair and you'll be fine. He looks good in my garage and enjoys watching over all of my unfinished projects. Definitely a good buy! Get one!

2) "Now part of the family" - Reptilacus
Best.. Skeleton.. Ever...  Now part of the family.

 3) "A replacement husband" - ELLE

Thought I was getting a mail-order husband and got a lazy sack of bones that evidently is no different than my current husband who lays about. I'll still give him 5 stars because at the very least he makes me laugh and my current husband doesn't like to mess with him.

4) "Pose and prank my teenagers" - John & Sherri

So much fun to pose and prank my teenagers! It's great for Halloween too, of course! This guy just makes you smile cuz he's always smiling! I bought one Crazy Bones and one from a different maker. Crazy bones looks and feels far superior in quality, but has a couple drawbacks. The hands and forearms don't move and twist like real arms, but they are both hinged. Neither the shoulder or hips move like ball and socket joints, but they are hinged and poseable. The other cheaper brand was clearly more flimsy, but it was also fully poseable AND the joints moved better and rotated. So both have their good and bad. I love both skeletons, but would probably recommend the Crazy Bones one because the quality is top notch!

To the Crazy bones creators, your public has spoken. We want more mobility in the hands and arms. Y'all are geniuses. I know you can make it happen!! ;D. When you do, I'll buy more, and I doubt I'd he the only one eagerly awaiting its release!!

PS- for those who don't know, Pinterest has tons of great ideas for posing your skeleton(s)!!

 5) Why not seven? - Carol Crockett

Awesome! I have 7 of these outside the house! This is by far the coolest Halloween decoration I've ever used! Easy to pose, no tools needed. I used tie wraps to keep it in place. They've been thru a storm with rain and wind and still look awesome! Lots of compliments from neighbors!

6) Took mine to a festival. He made more friends than I did. - Will Proffitt

Does what it says in the tin. Pose and stay. Arrived on time. Only about 5 foot tall which is a bit disturbing because when he's standing next to you he looks like a ten-year-old. Called mine Jim and took him to Apocalypticus festival (see photos). Everyone loved him. Now he's got his own Facebook page and he made more friends than I did. My only gripe with Jim is, apart from the fact he drinks too much, is that he's a bit fragile. When I say he's a bit fragile I mean if you get blind drunk and carry him into a mosh pit then he'll probably lose his arms first, then his head, then he'll break his back. We had to screw and tape him back together daily and he had a full overhaul after we got home to get him back to fighting fit. The weakest parts are his shoulders.

Very pleased. Would buy it again.

7) A burglar deterrent! - Mrs. Rita Stevens

What a great buy! Have him sitting in my garden room with his Brighton scarf on and he looks the business. Bit of a burglar deterrent! I call him George as looking so realistic, had to name him!

8) A helpful employee -  Ryan

After seeing a few pictures of skeletons in uniforms I got the idea of ordering one and doing the same for our repair shop.
This was for sure an impulse buy but it was one of the best things I’ve ordered. The amount of reactions and laughs I’ve gotten from various customers as we had him sitting behind our counter. Countless times we’ve had people not paying attention walk up to the far side of the counter where Mr.Bones was and would start to talk as if he was going to help them. 10/10 solid buy.
There were a few times I had to wedge his legs under our counter to keep him up and tighten some bolts for a better hold, but nothing crazy.

9) The perfect companion for travel, roadtrips, movies, dates, parties, and guarding your car when you're not there. - T. Clark

We named our skeleton B.O.B (Built of Bones) and he's the perfect companion! He's a good listener, won't nibble on your food when you're not looking, and he always thinks you have nice skin. (You shouldn't let him drink though-everything goes right through him.)

I tell people he was a hitchhiker I picked up while passing the local cemetery. He's been having the time of his afterlife since he's been with us, and he now has his own Instagram so others can keep up with his adventures.

10) For an "escape room" game business - John Garrison

I use one of these in an "escape room" game business, and it is heavily played with by hundreds of customers a week. They manipulate it and carry it around, pose with it in photos, etc. It took 8 months of this heavy abuse before one of the arm sockets broke, though I think that was due to a customer trying to force it into an unusual position rather than a fault of the product.

The appearance of the skeleton is also superior to many other options in a similar price range. It is more detailed and realistic than the skeletons sold at Home Depot, for example.

11)  A wave of skeletons is currently attacking our home - ScienceDiva

Much to the dismay or delight of our neighbors (depending on their sense of humor) we are being overrun by skeletons. They are climbing on to the roof, opening windows, hiding behind trees, you name it. These are not EASY to pose and you will need fishing line and wire to get them "just so" but they are a really fun addition to your Halloween decor. I currently have 7 of these - I bought 3 last year and 4 this year. I think I could use maybe 2 more next year to make it perfect. People swing by to take pictures. These are great. They hold up to our Texas heat and the flooding rains without any problem. 2 years and holding - still look great.
