It’s something of a truism, that we as humans are scared of things we don’t understand. We also tend to have an inborn prejudice against things that don’t ‘look’ right, though we can outgrow that if we put our minds to it. Take for instance the tarantula. Some are smallish in size, but others can get to be as big as a dinner plate. Never mind that most tarantulas are completely harmless to humans. When we see something like that, most of us freak right out.
Folkmanis captures this essence with not one, but two awesome creepies, that come in different sizes – 9 inches and 18 inches respectively. And, if you know anything about Folkmanis, you know that their plush toys come to life in your hand. So, do you have a sib who is irrationally, deathly afraid of spiders? Introduce him or her to your eight-legged friend here. You can pat yourself on the back for a job well done after s/he hits you and/or runs away screaming in abject terror.
What’s that? You don’t want to freak out your sib? Where is your sense of adventure? Trumped by your sense of self preservation because your sib is bigger than you? Well, we hope you’re more fleet of foot than they are.
Folkmanis’ quality plush puppets are just begging to get in on the mischievous action. Each puppet is brown and black in color, and liberally covered with the long hairs that give this iconic spider its appearance. So what are you waiting for? Slip your hand into one and make with the fear mongering! If you happen to learn something neat about spiders along the way, so much the better.
