This is the remote-controlled oversized tarantula that creeps across flat, smooth surfaces like an actual arachnid with creepy, crawly leg movement only available from Hammacher Schlemmer. Spinning 360° on command from the radio remote that also provides left/right and forward/backward movement, the tarantula’s legs appear to synchronize as it quickly scuttles its way over hardwood floors. With a hairy exterior suggestive of the urticating hairs that cover a tarantula’s abdomen, the spider ejects an 11"-long red cord randomly for added surprise. Requires four AAA and one 9-volt battery. Ages 6 and up. 8" L x 12" W x 3" H. (1 1/4 lb.)

from Denver, CO
WE have a large Halloween at work and these spiders were a big hit. Everyone loved them. Only negative, they are on the same frequency, but that did not stop us from having a great time sending the spider out to unsuspecting visitors to our office. The little kids, under 4, were a little frightened of them. The dogs did not know what to do with them. They just barked and tried to attack. Could not stop laughing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A Great Halloween Addition
from Warrenton, Va
I spent a long time trying to find a remote control spider online. Most of the units had poor ratings for quality and durability. This one is very well made and quite durable. Only drawback I could see is the somewhat limited radio control range (maybe twenty feet or so). However, that really wasn't an issue. I brought it to work for a Halloween party and had a great time scaring the guest who attended. Works very well on indoor/outdoor carpet (a little noisy on vinyl). Great product at a reasonable price!

Worth a few laughs at least
from Anaheim, California
My primary motivation for this purchase was to see how my puppy reacted to it—and his combination of bafflement and curiosity made it a worthwhile exercise, despite the drawbacks of the product. If my intention was to scare people with its mobility and creepiness I would have been disappointed. It is too noisy to sneak up on anyone., The simulation of the spider's web spinner was more than lame. It was also very cumbersome to operate on carpet.
WELL WORTH THE MONEY

Nephew loves it. He's made a list of all the people he wants to scare with it. I'm having a lot of fun watching him have fun. Great gift.
Best way to "bug" your friends1
This giant spider is fun to play with, but it's the favorite new source of excitement for our 4 cats! It spins and chases them and intermittently "spits out" its web - and they love it! We bought it for Halloween fun but may keep it out all year long!
Great for Halloween
from Eureka, ca
It was used for Halloween to scare the kids coming up to the house.

Was the hit of our Halloween Party!
By Fun-time Grandpa
from River Vale, NJ
Left it on front porch and as each grandchild came to front of house, they were "shocked" to see this hairy tarantula scurrying towards them. Once they realized that it was mechanical, they each took turns using the remote control to move it. Despite many other battery operated witches, zombies, etc., the tarantula was the hit of the party!
AWSOME, LIFELIKE, THE WEB, 360 ROTATION. GENTLEMAN, I WILL
from CAPITOL HEIGHTS, MD 20743
I WILL MAKE VIDEO, THAT WILL VIRAL.
I bought this for an adult friend who loves Halloween. My husband had it scurry across the floor up to his feet. He was so excited and blown away. Our other friends were both initially scared and then laughed so hard. We all had a good time with it.
