01-22-2009, 04:14 PM
This is Janene at Distortions. We just developed a new product called "Grandma" This product is unqiue because it is a foam filled latex piece with a metal armature and a strong AC motor that rocks her back and forth which in turn either rocks the rocking chair or rocks her back and forth on a still chair for 198.00! "Grandma" comes with a CD that you can use of her talking and laughing. You provide the chair (or rocking chair) and plug her in. No assembly. All electric.
This is a pro haunt quality piece at a crazy price. This is premiring this Saturday at the Houston Trade Show in the Morris Booth (#2525). This is an introductory price so be sure to order within the next couple of weeks to make sure that you can get in on this special price. She should be on the website later today. Call us at 970-351-0100 for more information.
Thanks - Janene

Wow, $198.00 you can't get most haunt related things at that price, very cool. Will you be showing this off in St. Louis?

She will be in St. Louis, although the price could possibly go up some. This is an introductory price.

I had to call to confirm the price and it really is selling for only $198.00! We got our order in! Shipping wasn't bad at all either, only $20.93! Thanks Janene for your assistance with our order!

Yea there will at least be a few animatronics there. Nice price too.

Wow that is great! And I like the price! How much more will it be at Transworld? Hopefully closer to $200.00 than $300.00.

Look for my "Celebrity Underware" booth at Transworld.
All under $300! Signed by highly personal stains.
(I said "Look for my booth, this doesn't mean that you will actually find it there!)
Take the time to check out your own pants, see what I mean? Did you find something?
And you're not even at Transworld!

"Grandma" from Distortions arrived yesterday... SHE IS BAD @$$!!! As soon as we hook up a sound system for her, I will try to take a video shot of her inside Raycliff Manor to share. In haunt lighting people are definitely going to think she'd a real person rocking in the chair! The detail on this lovely lady is astounding, right down to her wrinkly knees and knobby toes! LOL This product is as "plug and play" as it gets.
Janene and the rest of the Distortions Team, THANKS for an AWESOME product and a FANTASTIC price! Thanks for the incredibly great Customer Service as well!

There was another new prop from distortions at the Vegas show. It had Sam in the name but I can't be sure. Worked in the same manner as granny and looked really cool.

We got our two grannys yesterday. If anyone has a second story window on an old victorian facade she would look killer rocking in the window.Kind of a Norman Bates thing. All she would need is her hair in a bun. Just a thought...
Got Gradma last week and she started complaining about not having her dentures nag nag nag she wouldn't shut up!
And Scream Theme Studios doesn't have dental plain for our props.
So I had to buy her new dentures. $1600.00 for teeth..... Nice real nice!
We got ours last week, Distortions is one of the best!
This maybe the deal of the year.
(We added the teeth)

can't wait to see a video of her
03-12-2009, 10:13 AM
You can view her on our website (www.distortionsunlimited.com) Just put Grandma in the search box and you will be re-directed to her page. There is a YouTube video of her from our studio.

Distortions, can we still get Grandma for $198 or has the price gone up now?
03-13-2009, 08:15 AM
I love that prop and that price!
03-13-2009, 08:24 AM
Forgive the double-post, but don't forget that Distortions has donated one of these great animations to the HHA Auction.
Grandma's up for grabs at Saturday night at The Darkness!

I talked to Distortions last night and she said yes, there still 198.00. she also told me about a new guy not on web site yet. kinda Hannibal Lecter type. He sounds really cool and will be at TW.
03-13-2009, 09:10 AM
I'm going to bid on it, that looks really cool!
03-13-2009, 07:07 PM
That is a nice looking piece. Might have to get one myself.
