I don't know that they really had a specific name other than "sticky wall crawler", but here's a product that claims to be one of the originals (I had a sticky spider that crawled the walls).

The patented substance that's used is a sticky gelatinous composition, such as a melt blend admixture of poly (styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene) triblock copolymer and plasticising oils. (According to what I found).

Another source indicates that it could be made from "plastisol"; a PVC resin, a heat stabilizer and a plasticizer. 

As far as a DIY method... not really sure as I'm not a chemical engineer. You might be able to melt down some of the toys to form your own shape, but I would consult with someone before hand about this as it could produce some nasty fumes (or possibly not work at all).
