Christmas shopping season is in full swing, so you may be on the lookout for nice gifts for the children in your life. Alabama mom Hilary Hard, 22, was sure that she had found the perfect gift for her son Leo, a scream-activated spider that could keep the energetic toddler entertained for hours.
Having received the audio-activated arachnid early, she couldn’t resist trying it out. After uploading the cautionary tale on Facebook, the post quickly went viral. “I’m so glad my little man made you laugh and impressed you with his bravery,” Hilary wrote in response. “You can imagine how lucky I am to be Leo’s mom. He’s hilarious and full of heart and I can’t wait to share with him, when he’s older, how many people he made laugh.
There’s an overwhelming amount of attention that’s come our way recently and I just want to thank you all for sharing the moment with us!”
The spider toys, known as Yellies! have since increased in price and appear to be selling like hotcakes.
Voice and sound-activated, they respond to talking, yelling, clapping, singing, and even music.
The louder you yell, the faster they go! Every year there seems to be some kind of ‘must-have’ toy that your children will be demanding, from Furbies to Bratz, we’ve seen them all.
People were entertained by the whole story:
