We went on the website to double check the price of this item. I bought it last year and we love it so much we want another. Fortunately, we have not run into any of the negative things I just read about the spider. This spider has been dropped, chased, pounced on and other rugged play and has still kept going. I JUST changed the batteries today for the first time. We use it on both hardwood floors and carpet, of course it runs a little slower on the carpet but that is no big deal. The cat loves chasing it and my son (age 6 now) loves making it run away from the cat. My son hits it with a foam sword when make chase him. Overall I think this toy is great, thus why we are purchasing a second one. If I had to say one negative thing is that it attracts animal fur, and even that says more about my vacuum than the toy.

        Pros

          • Just quit working.

            Comments about Beckett Publications Animal Planet Radio-Control Web Blasting Tarantula:

            I had a similar product from a different manufacturer, and my 5-year-old grandson loved playing with it until I foolishly ran it off a table top at Halloween and broke it. Chose this as a replacement because it was locally and immediately available.

            First off, the spitting "web" is a tremendous annoyance. It is loud and completely random, with no provision at all to control it.

            Second, there is a separate joystick to control each side of the spider's movement. It is nearly impossible to keep them together, so movement straight forward or backward is difficult to impossible. Very frustrating to adults and children.

            Finally, after 30 minutes or so, one side of the spider just stopped working. I returned it the next day and ordered another from the company that made the original one.

            These things are inherently fragile, by the way ... ALL OF THEM ... FROM ANY SOURCE.

            cute and hairy

            from vermont

            Comments about Beckett Publications Animal Planet Radio-Control Web Blasting Tarantula:

            my son got this spider as a gift over a year ago. he was 3 at the time. it still works great. we havent even changed the batteries yet. it rolls well on carpet. its a little confusing to steer but he figures it out. i will say though that he doesnt play with it too much. maybe once every two months....at least from what i see. he sometimes just uses it as a big spider to fight godzilla without the remote. it is constructed well and fun for a kid really into remote control. i dont think my son is as into remote control toys as he thinks he is. regardless, i recommend. we had no problems other reviewers mentioned. its held up great. my son is gentle with his toys though. he is very consious of not breaking toys so for another child it could be different.
