This Christmas I want to give “Bug” only the best when it comes to toys, games and clothing and the one company that automatically came to mind when I started working on my Christmas Wish List this year was Wild Creations! I have been checking out their products now for quite some time and I had my eye on the RC Rattlesnake since “Bug” seems to be obsessed with all things snakes, so when I was given the opportunity to review a product from Wild Creations I was more than thrilled!
About Wild Creations (Taken From Website):
Our team at Wild Creations is built upon the eclectic talents of individuals with a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, all in an effort to foster and encourage creative thinking and the pursuit of new ideas. Everyone recruited for the team, however, shares in our common and undeniable enthusiasm for nature, knowledge, and really, really neat stuff.
This common zeal and curiosity can most likely be traced back to our generation’s close interaction with nature and the outdoors. As kids, we were the collectors of all things unusual and new, the participants in every science fair, and the students with an insatiable quest for information. We were the kids with the terrariums and aquariums with new insects, reptiles and other backyard critters, and with the persuasive talents to convince our parents to allow us to keep them. We were the kids who developed a bond with nature and the outdoors and the reverence to truly appreciate it. We didn’t have the internet, handheld gaming devices, or thousands of television channels to occupy our time, so instead, we were the kids who got dirty.
Over the years, our paths took us to college and “grown up” careers. We pursued careers in the public sector as well as in the corporate world, both overseas and domestically. As we became older, we started families and began raising our own children. While doing so, we slowly realized that many of the experiences and opportunities we treasured as children were no longer available to our own. Culture and lifestyles have changed, and as families gravitated to cities and urban areas,easy access to nature and the outdoors diminished. We decided to do something about it.
So this is why we do what we do. Our commitment is to provide our customers with products that bring us closer to nature, take us outdoors, foster personal engagement with one another, and encourage the pursuit of adventure and knowledge. We want our children, and yours, to be able to share the same enthusiasm, curiosity, and appreciation that we had as kids,and commit to doing so in a responsible and affordable manner. We will continue to develop new ideas with this vision and, hopefully, get dirty from time to time doing so.
Our greatest rewards are the stories and pictures we receive from our “grown up” customers detailing the smiles of sons and daughters, the giddy laughs of grandchildren, and even recanting their own enthusiasm for our products. Please keep them coming … it is what motivates us to continue what we believe is a very worthy endeavor.

P.S. And if you get the chance, get out there and get dirty!!!!
We were lucky enough to get to choose a product from the fall items currently available at Wild Creations and it was a no brainier that we decided on the RC Rattlesnake! Shipping of the snake was lighting fast and even though I knew what to expect when I opened the box I still jumped a bit when I pulled the snake out of the box…it looks extremely real…and I hate snakes but “Bug” and his grandfather love all things creepy and crawly so I know that when he gets this snake Christmas morning he is going to be beyond excited! He has been asking Santa for one ever since he seen the video online at the Wild Creations website so I know it’s going to be a hit.
Now, just to be able to give a fair review and trust me Chad and I did not enjoy testing this little guy out without our “Bug” (yeah right!!! We had a blast) we did just for the purpose of review and I have to say this little guy is extremely awesome and very realistic! Both Chad and I took turns giving this a good run around our kitchen floor and almost scaring our puppy to death and it is super easy to control and it moves very realistically and I’m loving the real tongue action that it has while slithering around underneath the tables and couches, its really awesome!! We used the snake on the carpet, tile and outside in our driveway and it works great on all of the surfaces we tried it on! Don’t just take my word for it check out this awesome video (yes, the same one that got “Bug” begging for this little guy)!
I’m very excited to see “Bug” and his Papa when he opens it up on Christmas morning and I can already hear my mom and sister having a fit when they are least expecting to see a snack slithering all over the living room floor!!! I know that this is not only going to be a huge hit with “Bug” but my nephews are going to also love it…I don’t know what in the world it is about these boys but if it’s creepy and crawly they love it!!!!!
I do not like snakes at all but I love this RC Rattlesnake from Wild Creations, not only is it super easy to control it’s also very realistic and well….kind of creepy but it’s awesome!! I really wish we would have had toys like this when I was a child…but I got the next best thing I can play with it when “Bug” isn’t looking right?
If you have a kiddo on your holiday shopping list this year that is like “Bug” and loves all things creepy and crawly you should really consider giving them this awesome RC Rattlesnake!
