    After you decide what to do, it might be helpful to buy some readymade toy with a kind of base that you require. You can rip that toy off, and use its base. It saves a lot of time, and worth it when you are doing for the first time.

    i'll agree with happy_99.
    The best thing to do is to start ur own simple robot ASAP.
