Perfect joke to play at work. Sounds like real crickets and just as someone tries locate it stops making the noise.
I bought this card for my dad. I had planned to mail it to him, but when he surprised us by stopping in on a long drive from South Carolina to Illinois, I gave it him. He opened it at our house just as he was about to continue his five hour drive home. He decided to let it play until the battery died. He called periodically from the road to let me know “Two hours in an it’s still playing”. His voice more and more annoyed with each call. I kept encouraging him to rip out the battery, which he wouldn’t do. He had to listen to Jingle Bells for 3 1/2 hours before it died. I can’t tell you how much joy this card brought me. I laughed hysterically. When he got home, he showed the card to my step-mom, who also laughed a great deal about his drive with the card. When she opened it, the card started playing music again. Dad, not willing to take another minute of the music, ripped out the battery. Voila! Glitter! Thank you for bringing me some joy in 2020.
Subsequently, my brother, whose birthday was yesterday, was afraid to open the card from me. I love keeping them on their toes!
One didn't have removable strip inside the card, the other didn't have confetti inside, one more to go, hope it works.
I ordered a card with problems and this company responded like no other business I know. They are very reliable and great to deal with. I will recommend them to all my friends and business contacts.
The cards are so much fun!
This was so much fun. I hide both of the cricket envelopes in two different places at my job. My dr boss was going crazy trying to find “those darn crickets”. 😂
I’m so disappointed.... I ordered the card with glitter and when my brother went to try to open it to get the music to stop there was no glitter. I emailed about the issue and got no response. Won’t be ordering again.
My brother is the family clown prince. He is a semi professional magician, comedian and prankster. When you get a photo of glitter everywhere texted to you along with “got me”. It is all worth it. Five stars!
So my other half celebrated her birthday yesterday and I gave her the birthday card. She pressed play and then it began. The clip played, and played. I acted shocked like I got a defective card when I told her it was only supposed to play once. It played for almost 2 hours. I saw that she was starting to get annoyed with the tune I picked and I pretended to "look online" for a solution. Told her nothing was found but maybe if she tears the card so we can take the battery out of he card we could Turn it off. Well, she took the card apart at the seam in seconds and was able to get to the speaker without spilling the glitter. So no glitter surprise, gag foiled.
Card was okay. Wasnt very loud and the right side of the card was glossy and hard to write without smearing. I ordered and paid for the card with confetti and it had none inside. Dissapointed.
Monday morning my cousin sent me a text asking me how to turn off the birthday card we got him. Of course we got a good laugh out of the fact that he opened it right before a Monday morning work conference call! I told him he could rip it, but suggested that he do that outside (it was filled with glitter in case they tried to rip it to make the recording stop). He sent me a video from inside and even though he ripped it, you could still hear it playing… During his entire conference call. He finally got some wire cutters... #bestcardever
This card did its job. It ended up on the front porch. 4 hours later it was still barking. Love it.
I ordered this on 10/18 and it wasn’t shipped according to the stated timeline. I requested a refund, which was honored, but they asked me to return the item. I would have returned the item but it still hadn’t arrived as of 11/2, when I had to leave that address. I’d like to rate this higher because I did receive a refund but I never even saw the product and had really looked forward to it 😞
I know this is the review for the birthday box which I haven’t used yet but I did give my Granddaughter the screaming birthday card. I made her wait and open it when she got home and put us on FaceTime when she opens it. We (her Grandparents) laughed our heads off watching them, them wondering what was making that card scream all the time. They thought it was just broke. They ended up putting it in the garage, than decided to get it out of there too. It eventually got torn apart with all the glitter everywhere. Can’t wait to use my Christmas card and box. Soon as I get a chance too, I just need to find the “right” friend to give it too.
So my brother usually pranks me a lot just in general and to get him this birthday card was fantastic because at 1st it was funny then it was a noxious and when he got frustrated with it in his car he ripped it open and there is now glitter in his car he still finding it
I bought 3 of these to play pranks on my coworkers. The cricket sound is perfect, but the glitter just isn’t worth the money. I followed the instructions to a T, but once found and they pulled the card down it just peeled off as one piece and didn’t explode with glitter. Sooooo frustrating!
