You know when you go to the toy isle of the store and you see those plastic type bugs that promise to grow 600% in size if soaked in water for 72 hours? It sounds intriguing. It sparks the interest of the kids and, quite honestly, mine too. So when you have a birthday boy in the house and need little filler gifts for his sisters to give him, you buy such toys.
Here it is - a spider straight out of the package:
And here it is, 72 hours later, and.... 600% bigger?:
Well, it may not have lived up to its size expectations but the kids are having a blast sneaking that spider around the house, hiding it, and trying to scare anyone who enters the house with it.
Money. Well. Spent.
