Remote Control Spiders

Updated on July 9, 2013

Believe it or not one of the predictions for this years hottest toys are remote control spiders! I know my son has always wanted one and I have been putting it off. As you can tell from my tone I am NOT a fan of Spiders ( well maybe the Pretty ones!) I am sure my family will purchase one for him eventually just to see me squirm. Here you will find a collection of the grossest and creepiest things on eight legs with a remote!

Here is one of the biggest ugliest critters, a remote control tarantula by Animal Planet! You can control the head and forward movement on this spider. It has a fuzzy skin for a more realistic look. Parents seem to like this RC spider the best. One parent commented on how much it had been dropped and had it's legs pulled. This RC Spider also lasted over two years according to another parent. Parents of five year olds seemed to comment the most. Parents caution that this spider does not run well on carpeted surfaces.

The Uncle Milton Radio Controlled Spider is also realistic looking. Not only does this critter have a furry texture but he has light up eyes!. Each leg can move independently for an extra creepy look! The remote is a Spider egg! The RC spider is seven inches long. It requires two AAA batteries and 2 AA batteries. Parents state this spider needs a flat surface to walk and spin. Some cons to this RC spider, it makes a mechanical noise when it walks.

The remote control web runner looks something like a black widow. Not only can he run on the floor but he can run up walls or ceilings! It uses a suction mode to cling to the walls! The spider has eyes that can light up and fangs that glow in the dark. This one is nine by thirteen inches long. He requires 6 AA batteries that are not included!

Another spider by Animal Planet is the Black Widow remote control spider. This spider can scurry back and forth across the floor! It is covered with realistic fur. The remote is simple to use with just four directional buttons. Have fun scaring your friends with this one!

This remote controlled tarantula by wild creations comes with a prepare to scare mode. Yes turn on this mode and leave it on the kitchen floor waiting for your victim. This remote control spider will wait ten seconds and move around a little. It will stop and wait ten seconds more and scurry around a little again! This spider comes with 2 AG13 batteries. Parents like this toy and state it can be educational.

Now I would not be afraid of a Hex-Bug spider! I love the Hexbug line. We have owned many a hex bug when my son was growing up and they never failed to entertain. This "bug' can be controlled by remote and can have it's head turn around 360 degrees. It comes in several colors. This is a perfect gift for a child who has a parent that is a little arachnophobic ( like me!)

Do you think a remote control spider is a good gift?

Would you buy a remote control spider as a gift?

As you can see there are many remote controlled spiders to choose from. Hopefully yours will not get smashed or eaten by the dog!

      That is a good hub - it reminds me of the new cell phone commercial where the guy sits his camera with a picture of a spider on the table & the girl jumps up screaming & the older guy takes off his shoe & starts smashing the camera...LOL Cool hub girl
