How would I replicate the motor and switch from the robotix toys?

Im making a jib and to make it pan and tilt I remembered the motors from my toy robotix from when i was a kid. They still make them but they are WAY overpriced for what they are, little DC motors and switches. Looking for radio shack project tinkerers to tell me exactly what i need, links to google shopping pages a plus. Basically i need a couple small gear drive motors like the ones from robotix, a power source, and some type of switch for either polarity like on an electric screwdriver. And about twelve feet of wire per motor.
