What It Is
Uncle Milton's Horrible Pets is a line of remote-control creepy crawlies with realistic features. The Scurry and Scare Bugs Hissing Cockroach is part of the Horrible Pets line, but this bug is not remote control and uses no batteries to move around. Kids simply rev it up (roll the bug forward a few times) and let it go. The Hissing Cockroach will quickly roll forward until it runs out of steam.
Why It’s Fun
The Hissing Cockroach may be gross to some, but most kids will love this easy-to-use toy. Bugs are fascinating to kids, but they sometimes get squeamish playing with real bugs (and parents may not love that), so this is a way for them to engage that addresses the fascination and keeps them in control. Kids will also like scaring parents with this, so be prepared to play along.
Who It’s For
The Scurry and Scare Bugs Hissing Cockroach is for ages 6 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The Scurry and Scare Bugs collection also includes a Black Widow Spider, Cockroach, and Jerusalem Cricket.
