Sphero RVR pairs a customizable robot with other coding platforms out there like Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and even littleBits. The bot itself is packed with a variety of onboard sensors like IR, light, and color, and two large treads allow it to be driven in all sorts of environments. Over 715 customers have left a 4.7/5 star rating, agreeing with our hands-on review.

A more affordable way to take Sphero’s coding capabilities for a spin is with its Mini robot at $48. This one isn’t as customizable as the lead deal, but it still gives you access to the same programming knowhow, alongside a fun rolling design. Learn more in our review.
