Gremlins Electronic Interactive Gizmo Instruction Manual

If your Gizmo begins to behave erratically, or stops functioning, please replace the batteries. As Gizmo's batteries wear down, Gizmo's behavior will become erratic and many functions will stop working. Gizmo may also emit a low hum or appear not to be working at all. Replacing the batteries is the easiest way to fix most of these issues. If replacing the batteries does not the problem, please refer to the troubleshooting section in the back of this instruction book.

Gizmo Hi! I'm Gizmo and I am a Mogwai. Here is how I came to be here: A long time ago, an inventor named Rand Peltzer visited China in hopes of finding a buyer for his inventions and in search of a special gift for his son. While walking through Chinatown, Rand asks a boy for help and the young boy takes Rand to his grandfather's store. Rand hears a strange noise in the back of the store and seeks out the curious sound. This is it... this is what he has been searching for as his son's special gift. But the old Chinese storekeeper does not want to seel this sweetly innocent, cute and cuddly "Mogwai." The young boy asks Tand to wait outside and in a few minutes meets Rand with the covered cage of the "Mogwai." Rand takes the pet, but the boy cautions Rand with these three warnings: Don't every get him wet. Keep him away from bright light, especially sunlight. And the most important thing, the one thing you must never forget: no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs... never, never feed him after midnight. With these mysterious instructions, Rand brings home Gizmo to his son!

I am so happy you brought me home. I feel great! Please take me everywhere you go. I love to play. The more you play with me, the more amazing things I will do. And if you introduce me to other Gizmos, or Furbys or Furby Babies, I will be able to play with them, too!

But first, it is very important that you carefully read the following instructions so that you can understand all the amazing things I am able to do.

Before you play with me, please follow these simple steps:


  1. Ask an adult to install my batteries.
  2. Turn me upside down and open my battery compartment door by loosening the screw.
  3. Insert 4 x "AA or LR 6" batteries (not included) into my battery compartment and tighten the screw. Do not over-tighten the screw because this will cause damage. Battery installation should be done by an adult.
  4. I will now wake up and be ready to play.
  5. For more detailing instructions, read the section "Replacing Batteries" on page 10.

To ensure proper function:

- Do not mix old and new batteries.
- Do not mix alkaline, standard or rechargeable batteries.
- Battery installation should be done by an adult.
- Non-rechargeable batteries are not to be recharged.
- Rechargeable batteries are to be removed from the toy before being charged (if removable).
- Rechargeable batteries are only to be changed under adult supervision (if removable).
- Only batteries of the same or equivalent type as recommended are to be used.
- Batteries are to be inserted with the correct polarity.
- Exhausted batteries are to be removed from the toy.
- The supply terminals are not to be short circuited.

****HELPFUL TIP: Gizmo is a state-of-the-art, electro-mechanical, robotic toy. The mechanical sound you hear when Gizmo moves is normal.

****HELPFUL TIP: You will be able to tell when my batteries wear out because my behavior will become erratic and I will begin to not always respond to my sensors properly. If this happens, replace my batteries and I should return to normal!
