Puppet Toys: The Amazing Jumping Spider!

As far as I’m concerned, this is one of the simplest of puppets. It’s a spider(often very hairy and fuzzy and creepy)tethered on a long, slim tube with a squeeze bulb on the end. You squeeze the bulb, and a little tab pops out on the spider’s underside, pushing it off the ground and making it jump.It often looks frighteningly realistic, but mainly it’s simply the element of surprise that makes your grandma squeal and hop out of her chair.

I had one of these, and I took it to work, and the boss’s kid broke it, squeezing the daylights out of the bulb.
