Tarantula Planet Review and Giveaway.

WINNER COMMENT #25 -  freddie said...I would pick Red Beard "The Pirate".

On St Patricks Day this year a pesky leprechaun invaded my house and started playing tricks on my daughters. He hid toys, died our milk green, and even gave my daughters a surprise pet.  Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong setting and didn't get a video, but this was my girls reaction when they met said pet.


Their new pet was actually Red Beard “The Pirate,” from Uncle Milton's new line of toys Tarantula Planet.

The leprechaun left Red Beard in a creepy crate on my kitchen floor.  And then when my girls came in and started making noise, Red Beard broke out of the crate and chased after them.  It was absolutely hilarious. 

After my girls stopped screaming and settled down enough to see what was chasing them, they absolutely fell in love with their new pet tarantula.

All of the Tarantulas from Uncle Milton's new line - Tango “The Solider,” Red Beard “The Pirate,” Octane “The Racer” and Spike “The Rocker” - are sound activated and run on any flat hard surface.  The spiders are pretty big and are made from bendable plastic.  They have little wheels on the bottom and can really book it across the floor.

To Buy -  I was a little bit surprised that even though my girls are the ultimate girly girls, they absolutely love them.  They love to race them, and make them chase each other.  They think it's so fun to pretend like they are scared and run away from them. The Tarantula Planet tarantulas would make a great gift for a young boy, or anyone that likes to play jokes.  And they retail for around $10 which is a great deal on a sound activated toy! 

Also to kick off the new line, Uncle Milton has created a Tarantula Planet Fan page on Facebook and announced a cool video contest. Going on now through April 15th, the "Creepy Scare” video contest challenges fans to create and post “creepy scare” videos of the Tarantula pets. Prizes will be awarded for the best videos.
