This multi-legged machine uses an ingenious system of suction cups to walk up smooth vertical surfaces like windows and glossy panels. Not only is it fun to watch as it scuttles across the surfaces around you, but your family also gets a small taste of engineering excellence as they come together to assemble the robot.

They'll learn about its inner mechanisms, including meticulously crafted gears and an electric circuit complete with motor, battery, and switch! Then challenge one another by experimenting to see which types of surfaces your Gravity Bug can climb best. Merry-go-rounds, cars, bicycles—try them all! Who can find the most unusual surface?

This fabulous robot building kit is recommended for ages 8+
