At the time I am writing this post (August 12, 2021), there are eighty (80) days until Halloween (at least that is what Alexa told me). That might seem like a long time from now, but trust me, Halloween will be here before you know it.
It’s going to feel like over 100+ degrees here in New York, but stores are already putting out autumn and Halloween items. Not that I mind. Autumn is my all time favorite season. Halloween and Christmas are my two favorite holidays to decorate for.
When we decorate for the holidays, we go all out. We even decorate the hallway, bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. There is no place in our home that we don’t decorate.
Our neighbors always comment on our decorations. We are one of only a few people who decorate in our condo complex, and we’re one of the only ones who put much thought into how we decorate. To give you a few examples, we have a life size “Michael Myers” (mannequin) that we put out on our balcony that freaks people out because he looks so real. We also use a projector to display creepy shadows on the curtains when they are closed to make our place look haunted.
My husband knows how much I love to decorate for Halloween. We have so many decorations, but I still find cool ones each year that I must have for our home. This year is no different. In fact, I just received the review what has instantly because my favorite Halloween decoration, even more so than our creepy mannequin.
The decoration I am referring to is called Jabberin’ Jack. He’s made by the brand Mind Scope Products.
Jabberin’ Jack is an animated pumpkin that makes funny (or scary) faces, sings, talks and tells jokes.
I saw Jabberin’ Jack on the internet last year. I really wanted to purchase him, but back then I didn’t know where. Thankfully I know now.

When I saw the videos for Jabberin’ Jack, I thought it was too good to be true. He looks so real! Is is possible he can look that way in person.
Here is a professionally done video for Jabberin’ Jack.
Seriously, how cool is this decoration?
I was fortunate to receive one to review (YEAH!). I would keep checking on the tracking information each day so I could see when it arrived. I was also stalking the delivery guys. The moment that box showed up I quickly tore into it. I just had to see Jabberin’ Jack in person.
Jabberin’ Jack comes with the pumpkin, power cord, and instructions. You will also have to put the “stalk” on top of his head. That was easy to do. It literally snapped into place.
The power cord length is a bit too small for our needs (we have limited plugs in our condo), but honestly, that is not a problem at all. We’ll get an extension cord when we figure out where he’s going to be when we start to decorate (usually by mid-September). I’m already planning on putting him on the television stand, which is a fake fireplace. I think his goofy and scary faces, coupled with the flickering “flames” of our fireplace, will look awesome together.
Jabberin’ Jack seems very well made. It’s a solid piece (meaning it doesn’t feel fragile). It’s also very light weight.
There is an on/off switch on the back of the pumpkin. On top you’ll see three buttons. The buttons on the left and right are the volume buttons, and the one in the middle changes between the different options.
The volume on this pumpkin can get VERY loud. I was surprised by that. Thankfully you can lower it to suit your needs.
Jabberin’ Jack works EXACTLY like it does in the professionally made video. It’s the “real deal,” and I am head-over-heels in love with this decoration. Even my husband commented on how happy I looked playing around with him.
I had my husband help me with this video (I’m sorry, I’m not good at taking videos). Jabberin’ Jack is on our kitchen counter for this video, but this will not be his final “resting place.” Once we get an extension cord, and we decorate, I’ll take a new (better) video to upload to this post.
As you can see, Jabberin’ Jack works just like the company says he does. He’s even BETTER in person!
The volume is low in my video. I should have turned it up louder so you can hear it better.
I had my husband cycle through things every few seconds. Jabberin’ Jack talks a lot, tells several jokes and sings a few songs. There is also the option of just having Jabberin’ Jack make faces, without talking, joking or singing. For the sake of watching television when we are decorated, we’ll mostly keep him on the silent mode. We will change to the other modes here and there (of course!).
I love how the candle inside his mouth looks so real. The flame flickers and moves around “inside” his head.
This is by far one of the greatest Halloween decorations I have ever seen in person, and this is coming from someone who lives and breathes decorating for the holidays.
Jabberin’ Jack is truly an awesome decoration that your family and friendly will enjoy, most especially children with his upbeat songs and silly jokes.
Jabberin’ Jack sells out quickly this time of year, so if you are interested in making a purchase, or to learn more about him, visit MindScopeProducts.com. They even have an animated snowman and reindeer, similar to Jabberin’ Jack.
