3-In-1 All Terrain Robot
In this life there really are only 4 things which are absolutely certain. People will keep buying rubbish music, the Isle of Wight will keep getting smaller, world leaders will never learn from the mistakes of their predecessors and toys will never again be as good as the ones we had back in the 80's! Put simply, newer toys are more Optimus Primark than Optimus Prime.
The blatantly "80's mech" inspired 3-In-1 All Terrain Robot comes pretty close though. Let's face it, robots are truly awesome, and thus this robot is truly awesome. What makes it even better is that it comes flat-packed as new, so YOU get to build it - making it as much an educational item as anything else. So when the Mrs. (or Mr.) begins to wonder where the yellow robot vigorously crawling it's way over towards the sleeping cat in the corner came from, you can completely justify the purchase.
As the "3-In-1" name suggests, the 3-In-1 All Terrain Robot isn't just limited to crawling over things - it can actually do 2 other things, albeit not simultaniously. In conjunction with the robot's 6 powerful caterpillar tracks, the Rover form is perfect for chasing slow moving pets, the Forklift form is perfect for trying to lift slow moving pets, and the Gripper form is perfect for trying to grip slow moving pets (results may vary).
Powered by 4 AA batteries (which aren't included) and controlled from a fetching yellow tethered remote, this is probably the closest you'll get to operating all terrain robot in real life. So get a "grip" on reality, "rover" over to your wallet and "fork" over a little cash for some pure robot joy!
"Why is it pointless?"
Once built, it serves virtually no real practical use of any kind
"Why is it cool?"
It's a robot and you built it!
