Product Details

This astounding robotic creature features an air suction system that enables it to walk up and down smooth surfaces like glass, plastic, whiteboards and glossy laminates. When the Geckobot's tongue hits an object in its path, the motor is triggered into reverse gear and it marches back down the wall. Geckobot's head and tail sway from side to side while it walks with an astonishingly lifelike lizard effect. A 24-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrations and fascinating scientific context. Use two AAA batteries (sold separately).

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning toy with some parental assistance! We received this as a gift for our 6-year old, and he readily assembled the lego-like steps while I assisted with the more advanced steps like gear alignment and tubing. We had a great time and it does walk up the window. It's quite an impressive, high quality kit for the price! A hint to others: Steps 12 and 15 you have to ensure the upper and lower leg attachment shafts are exactly in the same rotational orientation. One gear tooth off, and it may bind and not have the power to climb. Most of the instructions are very clear about orientation, but this I noticed during assembly and it's not in the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinated by the suction system My almost 9 year old grandson loved getting this Geckobot ready to go. He was most fascinated by the idea that it would suction to the window surfaces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work! This product was VERY advanced to put together and then, after hours of an adult's time on Christmas Day, it does not work. The suction cups are so strong that they won't release (battery pack not powerful enough to make the gecko walk). Walks along the couch but not along the floor or wall. Very disappointed boy and parents.
