Tyco Has an RC Toy That Can Climb Stairs

Back in the ’80s, Tyco was a big brand when it came to RC toys. Now Tyco is back with the Terra Climber. This is the first RC vehicle I’m aware of that can climb stairs. To kids that is huge. I wish I had had an RC car that could do that.

RC vehicles and stairs have never gotten along, but the Terra Climber changes this and it will have kids playing on the stairs all day long so you can’t pass. The toy rolls around on four spinning wheels covered in plastic claws that are mounted to a pair of articulated arms that can independently spin 360-degrees. The tail is a counterweight. That’s the secret to it’s climbing action.

It will also zip along flat surfaces. It’s awesome to see companies offering such fun toys these days. The Tyco Terra Climber will be available this fall for $100(USD). Check it out in action in the video below:
