durable seeming (he's survived two minor dog attacks with no battle wounds)
friendly whilst appearing menacing to some
He can't stop you from being punched by an angry wife.
I recommend Kevin's brothers and sisters to anyone who, for one reason or another, is in need of a realistic looking rubber snake.
I have a *ahem* sliiiiiight snake....phobia...phobia sounds better than outright fearbased disgust and hatred of sssssssssssssssssssnakes.
I wish I was exaggerating by I tend to sweat., hop around like a crazy person, CURSE (alot) and half way hyperventilate if I see a snake. I have seen 3 outside in the last 5 years and 1 in a pet shop.
I am the kind of person who remembers EVERY snake incident with crystal, terror etched clarity.
So why buy a realistic rubber snake?
Well long story short I have a friend who lives in Canada and her little boy loves snakes and he knows we have rrrraaaatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttle snakes in the area we currently live and was suitably impressed and some how got it in his head I was going to send him a snake from Arizona. (he's 5)
Well hell...okay....so I looked on here and searched for realistic snake....ugghhh...I found this....
I figure if I get the cold sweats looking at the photo that it shall suffice as realistic enough to send to a snake loving little boy in another country.
Here's a funny thing, being all brave as I was to order it I decided that while it was in my possession I'd try to do a little aversion therapy. A fake snake has got to be better than a real snake for over coming a phobia.
Mind you once I placed my order I realized I now had a package coming to MY HOUSE WITH A SNAKE IN IT.
At that point the whole "not real" thing wasn't as scary as snake snake snake snake snake snake in a box...coming to the house.
So, it's freaky creepy.
Like. CREEPY. SNAKES ARE EVIL, I mean....yay, great quality workmanship for a fake rubber snake..if you like that sort of OH MY FREAKING GAWWWWWDDD IT'S HORRIBLE...thing.....
I kept it a couple weeks. Made my self look at it, TOUCH IT (uggh) and then I moved it around the house qhere I'd have to walk by it or see it unexpectedly a few times a day.
My husband got used to (ha is already used to) me going "GASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSP" quite dramatically when I'd inevitably forget the freaking thing was on the kitchen floor.
I gotta say though, I did grow used to it. I stopped gasping (I still hate snakes) I stopped noticing it. When I was able to just pick it up and toss it out of the way of some grocery bags I figured my time with it was done.
I packed it up, sent it off and received word back that the recipient was taking it around his home, showing it to all his toys and then took a nap with it (holy freaking hell a NAP WITH A SNAKE, fake or not...yeeeeeesh)
So I got my money's worth. Aversion therapy AND a gift. Nice.
The top of it is very realistic, the bottom of it, after I got over my fits and gasps I could see wasn't as real. The eyes are.....quite...spooky..shiny..dead, dull, staring and unblinking at you.... (just gave myself the shivers)
There's even a bit of wire in the upper..neck? and head so you can raise the head up a bit or turn it...
Before I sent it off I grabbed a couple outdoor pictures, really real looking...
And I did the classic hold it like it's real thing.
By the by, I am IN NO WAY NOW FOND OF SNAKES.
Keep the real ones far, far, farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr away. However not freaking out over a photo of one or a rubber one is a nice step in a very adult, non-phobia-ish direction...right?
I would suggest tying fishing string around its neck and hiding around a corner. Slowly reel it in when someone spots it. They will either run, or get a kick out of it!
Either way, have fun with it. I definitely recommend this to anyone!
Check out the picture with my review to see how lifelike it looks on top of my girlfriend's cat tower. :)
I put it back in the box, but then there was a box, inviting someone to look inside.
I stuck it in with some other magic props, but then it would be an even bigger surprise when my husband went rummaging for his silks.
Finally, I placed with my son's stack of stuff. He loves snakes, knew it was coming in the mail, and, I figured, would be fine with it.
Late at night, as I was drifting off to sleep, I heard the front door open, signalling my son's arrival. And then I heard a blood-curdling scream.
What can I say?! It works.
