My little boy loves spiders - when Blake was 4, there was a mini beast workshop at school and Blake touched a tarantulas bottom! Since then he has asked a few times if he can have a pet tarantula! I was really pleased to receive a Wild Pets Spider from Character Online to review - an electronic pet spider is a brilliant idea because I'm not keen on having a real life tarantula roaming around my house for some reason!
Perfect for Halloween season! Blake (age 6) loves his Wild Pets Spider - it's soo creepy! It took Maegan (age 4) about 20 mins to stop being scared!
The Wild Pet Spider from Character-Online has a flocked body so he has that fur/hairy feel to him.
Terrifying realistic colours and markings - we have the red back one but there's four colours to collect!
Touch sensor on the spiders back let you choose between creep mode (blue eyes) where he will creep in a circular motion, explore (green eyes) where the spider will randomly crawl around the environment and attack mode - complete with red eyes and fast forward running! Will make you jump!
The rubbery legs jiggle about adding to the fun!
(For the sake of all arachnophobes!) Luckily there's an on/off switch!
Spider comes with batteries already fitted so he's ready to play straight from the backaging.
