Animal Planet Big Tub of Ocean Animals Set

Animal Planet Tub of Animals

Animal Planet has great toy concept..a tub of toys.  The Animal Planet brings us a tub of Ocean Animals.  There are many ocean animals in this tub. They are plastic and rubber.    Perfect for use in the bathtub, pool or just around the house.  They come in an easy to tote container, making them easy to take anywhere.  This is four pounds of fun!  There are not many left so get yours soon!

 Here is the first Animal Planet item I purchased my son.  The Tub of dinosaurs was a big hit.  It was also hours of fun.  He plays with this everywhere, in the bathtub, in the pool, even out side or in his room.  It comes with many different types of dinosaurs and they are a pretty good size!  It also comes with a plastic mat with terrain on it such as rivers and lakes.  Also with this toy is accessories such as boulders, volcanoes and trees.

Animal Planet Remote Control Snake

Remote Control animals!!!

 I don't know how popular this realistic remote control snake will be!  He is a 20 inch Bannana Boa Snake that runs on 2 AA batteries.  The remote control is an egg shape and runs on 2 AAA batteries! This thing can slither across flat surfaces.  Be careful who you prank or this toy may not last long!!  This toy is popular because there are only four left at the time I am writing this review!!  Also included is some educational material on the bannana boa.

Radio Control Giant Tarantula

 The Radio controlled Giant Tarantula is another favorite!  Believe it or not this ugly critter is selling out fast.  Only four left at the time of this review.  The tarantula is nine inches long and eight inches wide.  Use the remote control to watch him scurry forwards and backwards across the floor.  The furry texture feels like that of a real tarantula (if you are into touching them !)  Parents gave this toy three and a half stars out of five.  One parent stated she underestimated the durability of this remote control tarantula.  It has had the legs pulled off ( which go right back on) and dropped and it still works well.  This would be a great shocking gift!

Animal Planet T-rex Radio Control Dinosaur

 The Animal Planet T rex  remote control Dinosaur stands 12 inches tall and is 21 inches long.  This dinosaur moves, roars, swings his tail from side to side and has blinking eyes. His textured skin go along well with his movements.   He requires 6 AA batteries.  Parents  gave this toy three and half stars out of five because they loved how it worked with no problems.
