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.)

Spider does not work!
By Never again
from Greenville, IN
The spider is larger than expected. The "eyes" light up but otherwise nothing worked. The legs moved a little but in only moved about an inch then stopped. The motor was loud and way too noisey. I replaced the batteries twice, moved it to smoother surfaces, made sure there was not radio signal noise - nothing worked. The color is solid black an looks nothing like a tarantula. It is junk and I will be sending it back!
