Animal Planet RC Remote Control Alligator Encounter

Animal Planet RC Alligator EncounterFor the past 3 years we’ve had the pleasure of featuring several different items from Discovery in our Annual Holiday Gift Guides and I’m really excited to be featuring them again this year! Even though we’ve only been featuring their items for 3 years, I’ve been buying their toys & games for even longer than that!

* Complimentary Item Received for Review and Feature.

For our 8th Annual Holiday Gift Guide we received a complimentary Animal Planet RC Alligator Encounter to review for all of you. This item is for children ages 5 years and up. You will need to supply the required 2 AA batteries and the 3 AAA batteries that are needed to make it operate.

Animal Planet RC Alligator Encounter

Produce Features:

– Light-Up Eyes
– Chomping Jaws
– Life-Like Motion
– 2.4 GHz Wireless Remote Control
– 18″ Long

When purchasing this item, please take note of the batteries that are needed and pick those up at the same time. As soon as your child gets their new Alligator out of the box, they’ll want to play with it right away. So, don’t forget the batteries!

One of the things that my grandchildren like about the RC Alligator is the light-up eyes. If you look closely at my photos…you’ll see that the eyes are yellow in some (they’re lit-up) and in one picture they’re black (not lit-up). My grandson loves those eyes!

Next, the alligator is pretty large…measuring in at 18″ in length. The wireless remote control is perfectly-sized for a child’s hand, so it’s easy for them to hold and use. The kids like making the alligator walk around, swing his tail and of course…open and shut its jaws! He looks fierce!

My grandchild LOVE their new Animal Planet RC Alligator and have been playing with it a lot. They like taking it outside onto the porch where he moves really great. If you have carpeting in your home, he doesn’t move quite as well, so have the kids play with it on a smooth floor surface for best results.

The Animal Planet RC Alligator Encounter is available at various retailers across the nation and on Amazon for a really great price. You can connect with Animal Planet over on Facebook.

    I love Animal Planet. This is a great toy. I think that adults would enjoy playing with it as much as kids.

  2. Peggy Nunn says:

    This is so cute. I love these kinds of toys that will make the real animals sit up and take notice. They are so curious. I like that the eyes light up too. We have tile floors so it should work well here. Thank you for the review.

  3. My nephew would love this toy. He likes watching Animal Planet.

  4. You had me when you said it was made by Animal Planet.Seriously, Animal Planet is so fun to watch and they would come true to life as they could. I bet this thing is a blast. I could see kids playing with this for hours . The light up eyes are so neat!
