Brainstorm Toys Spider Catcher : Review

Summer brings about that time of year where homes all over the UK gain new occupants taking up residency around the house, i’m talking spiders. In our house its rather rife at the moment, the kids absolutely hate them being in the house instructing me to remove them from the corners of their bedrooms at night before bedtime. With a little help from Brainstorm Toys and their Spider Catcher I am now able to remove these critters harmlessly and take them back outdoors.

Included in this set is the spider catcher itself, cone for covering up the bristles, toy plastic spider and hook for attaching to a wall.

    OH MY GOSH!!!! I need to purchase one of these. I absolutely HATE spiders and I am so conscious of not passing on my phobia to my nearly 3 year old daughter – apparently when I was a baby my father freaked out as there was a spider crawling towards me on the carpet, which in turn scared me and made me cry and everyone says that is the reason why I hate spiders so much even to this day! My daughter always wants to touch them, and inside I feel like screaming and running for the door…..but I think I might be able to control my urge to run away just long enough to use this amazing gadget!!! I can always tell her that we’re using it as we don’t want the spider to get hurt!
