This remote-control tarantula scurries across flat surfaces like an actual arachnid, moving forwards, backwards, and rotates 360°. It has a hairy exterior, similar to the urticating hairs that cover a tarantula's abdomen and serve as defense mechanisms against predators, and the spider's eight legs move independently and the eyes light up, allowing you to frighten unsuspecting arachnophobes day or night. Remote requires two AA batteries and tarantula requires two AAA batteries. Ages 6 and up. The manufacturer has confirmed that this item meets U.S. Federal toy safety standards for lead. 1" H x 6" L. (12 oz.)

from Pahoa, Hi
Very realistic in looks and feel. It also moves like a tarantula - forward - and rotates in a 360 degree circle. Would be great if it had more than one speed and could jump as if it were pouncing on prey. THAT would keep my cats attention. They became bored after about 10 minutes and now ignore it totally.I'm always on the lookout for remote controlled toys that are challenging.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
It is a thriller

I am returning it because it does not run on carpets and is slow on hard surfaced floors.
