After having read the first review I was hoping for a lot more than it actually is. The Tarantula is too big to be believable (although it is the actual size of a Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula) and too noisy to scare anyone.
The description also says "moves forwards, backwards, left and right as well as spinning on its eight furry, independently moving legs" Not true! It moves about on wheels in it's base.
It is still fun to play with though.
