Animal Planet Radio Control Black Widow Spider Review and Giveaway



Hey Neighbors,

I have a boys gift basket idea to share here At the Fence. Actually a little girl might like it too! How about a Radio Controlled Black Widow Spider (22.99) from Animal Planet? It is for 6 years old and up. My 9 year old daughter was running it all over the house last night. Other than size, it is quite realistic as it crawls around on the floor. It has a furry texture that is sort of prickly feeling. This Black Widow Spider is from Animal Planet, who brings the animal kingdom to life through their toys, on screen and online. This spider comes with a radio control that allows you to turn the spider around, left or right, and to move forwards and backwards.


Just a little information on the Black Widow Spider taken from the back of the box: The female Black Widow delivers one of the deadliest bites in the insect world. Their webs act as their eyes and ears to the world because they are practically blind.


Animal Planet products are also available through Toys-R-Us, Target and Discovery Channel Stores just to name a few places you can find these. I actually have one more product from Animal Planet that I will share At the Fence, probbaly next week. So keep checking back. They have animal playsets, a remote control T-Rex, a Radio Control Snake, Wild Eyes, and puzzles, just to name a few.




Now I have a really neat idea for a gift basket with this Radio Control Black Widow Spider from Animal Planet. If you put the Black Widow in a basket along with a book on spiders, or a coloring book with spiders, then maybe add a pack of gummy bugs. You could even add a bug catcher, of course with a warning not to go looking for a Black Widow. I know many children who would love this gift basket!

One reader will win their own Radio Control Black Widow Spider.

Mandatory Entry:Visit the Animal Planet website and then leave a comment telling me something else that they have available you think your child (or whoever you would give this too) would like.

Yes, I am highly afraid of spiders. I have been bitten twice by brown recluse spiders! They did bodily damage to me. Took some time to get over that, both times. So I am very fearful of the 8-legged creatures. This would be for my grandson! He can scare his mom and siblings with it. my daughter will kill me! Ha-ha!

yes, i think spiders are very creepy. I use to be terrified of any size spider even if i could barely see it. We moved to the country and after about 12 yrs out here I've seen bugs i didn't even know was on this earth (preying mantus). I am still creeped out by them but not as bad.
