By using a specially designed suction device, the car can climb a wall and maneuver just as it does on the ground.

What We Think

The Good: Car can drive up walls; includes rechargeable battery

In a Nutshell: Car can do everything it advertises, but all the conditions must be met
At a Glance

Ages: 8 and up
Requires: 6 AA batteries for remote, clean surface
Smart, Innovative Design
Air Hogs makes the only cars that can climb walls, and the Zero Gravity Micro is smaller and faster than the original Air Hogs Zero Gravity Humvee. We were surprised by how small and light the Zero Gravity Micro is; it is basically a thin plastic shell wrapped around a light body with a vacuum in it. Our car was designed to look like a red race car, but you can choose from other designs available as well.

We were able to get the Zero Gravity Micro up and running without any problems. The remote control unit needs six AA batteries (not included), and is then used to charge the built-in rechargeable battery in the car. This is done by connecting a cable from the remote control to the car, and flipping the switch to charge mode. Thanks to smart design, this cable can be stowed and hidden away when not being used.

After about half an hour for charging, the car was ready to go. Right away, we set the car to wall climbing mode and set it on our wall. Though we'd read about what it was supposed to do, we were still very impressed when we saw the car stick to the wall and climb. You can see the vacuum working, as there is a window on the top of the car showing a spinning fan. The car makes quite a bit of sound when it is in wall mode.

Using the remote, we were able to make the car go up, turn left and right, and go down as well. With a tight turning radius, the car is very maneuverable and with some practice, you can get the car to do exactly as you wish. In addition to Wall mode, there is also a Ground mode which leaves the fan/vacuum off, and lets you drive full function on the ground. You need to walk around with the car, however, as the remote has limited range. This is not as big a concern on walls because we were usually pretty close to the wall as the car was climbing it.

The car has working headlights that double as a battery indicator--when they start to blink, the car is running low on power.

Needs Clean, Smooth Surface
The instructions warn that the car should be played only on a clean, smooth surface, and they're not kidding. Since the car is able to stay on walls due to suction, the moment an inconsistency is introduced, the car loses suction and falls off. We found that a surface like glass works very well. With our concrete wall, we often ran into problems with the car maintaining its suction. Coupled with the car's light construction, we fear that repeated abuse could cause damage to it.

Overall, we found the Air Hogs Zero Gravity Micro to be an innovative and fun toy. We wished it were a bit more hefty and could work on more surfaces, but when we got it going on our window, we were very impressed. It's a great new idea and twist on an old toy, and is bound to keep children mesmerized.

This is a fun toy!

It's a pretty good toy, but for how expensive it is it should perform better.

It wouldn't go on our ceilings because they are not smooth.

We got this in the mail, and my son couldn't wait to use it. He charged it up, and turned it on. IT IS SUPER LOUD. Louder than a vacuum and the tv on at the same time. The only thing that saved it from being thrown out was the light on my son and his best friends face when it actually stuck to the wall and zoomed past me. However, another downfall was the battery life. It is pretty much non-existent. He can only get a few good runs out of it before it dies, and when it DOES die, it literally just drops off the wall wherever it's at.

My 7 year old got this for his birthday. The first one didn't work at all other than making a horrible noise. The second one broke almost immediately. Battery life extremely low and it falls off the wall when the charge runs out. Don't waste your money on this one.

It's a pretty good toy, but for how expensive it is it should perform better. The car's four wheels are just cosmetic - really there are two small wheels hidden under the body's plastic shell. The two-wheel design makes driving on walls that aren't completely smooth tough, cause the car won't be able to drive up parts that bump out. Having the car's four wheels not really turn looks cheap and less cool.

It drives pretty well on the walls and ceiling, but it moves pretty slow. On the ground it's faster, about the speed you'd expect for such a small R/C.

The car is noisy when it's in wall-mode, the fan is about as loud as a hairdryer. It's fallen off the wall a few times and not been damaged, because it's so light it seems durable enough to stand up to normal use.

It's pretty fun to drive on the walls and ceiling, but I wish it were faster and that all four wheels actually spun. It's expensive for not having those features.

This is a fun little car, and works well on the walls. It isn't worth a penny more than I paid for it (29.99) at W--M---, though!
And keep your receipt, it seems a little flimsy. We've had such bad experience with air hogs items, that I don't quite trust this will last very long.

This has got to be the coolest Toy Invention in a very long time! This is an awesome amazing toy that will leave you & your kids WOWed!! While the battery life could be longer, it dies out just when you'd had enough of the noise that comes along with it. I mean seriously parents - do you really want your kid racing this car around the walls and ceilings while your watching tv, doing the laundry, cooking dinner? For 20 minutes it's great and then after that you're happy for the battery to recharge until next time. This is a GENIUS invention & is sure to be a HOT TOY for years to come!

I bought this for my 12 year old nephew and he and my husband have had a blast playing with it. I read the review of the person who was upset that it didn't work well on the floor! The whole premise of this toy is that it drives on walls and ceilings! How cool is that? We rate it SUPER FUN & VERY DURABLE!!

This is a great remote controlled car.

I bought it for my nephew's 6th birthday in November. He loves playihng with it--however; if you have textured walls (as my brother / SIL do) the car will have a hard time sticking to the wall.

My nephew found out that it will work on the french doors, windows, and the underside of the dining room table, though...
