Animal Planet Creepy Crawler and Giveaway

by Pennie on April 14, 2014


Creepy crawlers are crawling into real life with Animal Planet’s new Real Scary Spiders augmented reality app. The scary and cool addition to Animal Planet’s digital portfolio enables users to interact with a pet spider via an app and to bring their spider to life through a unique augmented reality experience. As users advance through the game, they will be allowed to ‘handle’ their spiders in the real world by directing their device at a trigger object to bring the spider to life.  Here is a preview video:

The app can be downloaded for free at and is available for both iOS and Android platforms.  For continued play, customers who purchase the Animal Planet Web Blasting Tarantula exclusively at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide will be able to use the toy’s package as a game trigger, activating an additional inter-connected experience that brings the box to life within the app. 

Nicole’s take:  Noah loves toys that have a digital component to them and this tarantula is pretty cool that way! He is loving his new pet spider and thought that the accompanying app was a fun way to bring it all to life! The app is free which is great and you don’t need the tarantula to play.  Noah told me he thought that the app was really cool and he loved the interaction.  He is still playing with the app and the toy a week later – always a good sign!
