Anybody know cheap($50),easy to make robots for beginners?

I've been interested in robots for a while,but I can never seem to find any robots that are cheap, or easy to build on a small budget. If anyone knows of any(especially on this site)bots that I or other beginner builders could make.

I would recommend:

I can also strongly recommend Junkbots, Bugbots and Bots on Wheels (Link) and that you look into BEAM robotics, where a large proportion of the parts are scrounged from other, dead electronics (I made a "headbot" from the guts of an old audio-cassette player).

Oh, I also have a copy of Stiquito for Beginners (Link) which I bought off ebay for about $15. I will, eventually, get around to building it.

It depends on what you consider a robot, I guess. There's the whole BEAM Robotics thing that uses a lot of "found" components, for example...
