About the toy
Send your Spidey up the wall after villains with this fast-climbing figure! When you point the controller at him and press the buttons, he climbs up, down, left and right, even upside down! Put him on smooth, clean, dry surfaces like windows and his mini-vacuums help him stick to the surface. Then guide the wall-crawling action with the controller! Watch how fast he scales the walls in pursuit of the bad guys. The power to make him go is right in the palm of your hand! Controller requires 4 "AA" batteries (not included).
I have boys who love anything and everything comic character related. They particularly love Spider-Man so when I saw this remote-control toy on the Hasbro Holiday Flyer, I thought it would be nice to get one to review. The first thing that struck me when I opened the box was the lightness of the toy. It is almost a bit fragile if not handle carefully by a child. But the lightness of the character is necessary for it to climb on walls.
The controller needed batteries in order to work. So I inserted the four required batteries and decided to charge the Spider-Man right away. The Spider-Man itself has a switch button to put it on. Right away the vacuum starts and you can place the toy on the wall. It really stays there without any help about from the vacuum which is a bit noisy. So I took the controller and proceeded to “walk” the Spider-Man up and down the wall. It was fun and definitively out-of-the-ordinary. The charge works for about 15 minutes then you will need to recharge the Spider-Man to the controller in order to play with it again.
Seeing the Spider-Man crawling on the wall of my bedroom, I got reminded of my oldest son who decided one day to climb the walls when he was 8 1/2 years old. He thought it was hilarious….
The Amazing Spider-Man R/C Speed Climbing Spider-Man is a out-of-the-ordinary gift to give to the boy in your life. Like I mentioned the charge time is about 15 minutes but I suspect that your son will find new territories to explore with Spider-Man once it is fully recharged…
The Amazing Spider-Man R/C Speed Climbing Spider-Man is available for purchase at your favourite toy store, even at amazon.com.
