What looks to be a simple remote-controlled kids toy is actually a sophisticated hobby kit. The DFRobotShop Rover comes in a kit that consists of an already wired circuit board, a robot frame, a Tamiya motor gear box, tread, and wheel set.

You may need to also buy the Arduino programming software, mini USB (type B) Cable, and some AA batteries if not already owned. The rover can easily carry up to 2kg (4.4 pounds) of weight on its top flat surface. For a hobby kit, the cheap price of $89.99 (USD) is a very reasonable price.
