The Yellies Flufferpuff Spider Pet was recommended as a budget Christmas gift by mum Kylie who shared images of the toy online along with a hilarious review from another shopper.
The electronic voice-activated toy by Hasbro scatters across the floor every time it detects sound – and the louder the sound, the faster it moves.
It can be purchased from a range of retailers including Amazon, Target, Big W, Toys R Us and Kmart for $19.99.

The reviewer from Alabama wrote a very detailed response on Amazon regarding how the toy operates and how it can terrify young children.
‘I thought it would be the perfect Christmas present…well I couldn’t wait for Christmas,’ she said.
‘So I crack it open tonight and get a good look at it. I test it out. I’m amazed at how powerful the little motor is… how fast the little legs move… how its creepy little eyes glow a lovely shade of radioactive green. So I call my son in.
‘The spider ran for it. Leo starts screaming… the louder he screams, the faster the spider pursued him. He runs.’

‘And this is when we discovered the fun little feature in which the spider has a tendency to stop abruptly… pause for a couple seconds… spin in several erratic circles… and then turn towards wherever it senses sound… and take off in that direction,’ the reviewer said.
‘More screaming. Spider runs faster. Leo is backed into a corner as murder glows green in the eyes of little ‘Flufflepuff.’ So, in short, maybe a little electronic spider that’s power source feeds off screams of terror… is not the best Christmas gift for your small child.’
While the reviewer’s son Leo wasn’t overly impressed with the toy, other parents on Facebook said their children ‘love it’.

‘I have this spider for my four-year-old grandson and he loves it!’ one woman said.
‘My daughter has one of these, but she’s not afraid of it and finds it funny,’ another said.
A third added: ‘They really aren’t that bad and crazy, there’s two in my house and they really don’t chase the kids around.’
‘I got my kids one but my cats love it more… I love it too,’ another woman said.
A range of different spider toys are available to collect, with each one being a varying colour.
