I'm 35, but I wish I had this at one or both of two times in my life:
- growing up
- when I was getting my EE degree
This set does a great job at introducing everything you need for an introduction to electrical components and programming. This isn't certain to put you or your kid on a path to a high earning job as an electrical engineer, but it's more likely to do so than a video game.
Instruction booklet is understandable for real humans, but some challenges may be had dealing with versioning of code/firmware/etc. That's actually a good thing because this is what you go through problem solving technical challenges in real life. Excellent problem solving training (psst... use the internet).

If I had it to do again, now that I know more, I wouldn't have bought this kit. This price is a bit high for what you get, but it did come with enough to get a running start at my ultimate goal of building robots. I bought this kit, knowing next to nothing about electronics circuits and only a little Java in my programming background, on May 18th and by the first week of June I had begun building my first object avoidance robot.
The kit is a good place to start, but the reason I say I wouldn't have bought this is, if you do enough research first, you can get one of the cheaper kits or even the Arduino board by itself and some jumpers, caps and resistor sets, along with a few other electronics parts and spend much less than you will buying this kit. The book was nice, but all the tutorials you find in it can be found on the internet for free.
To conclude: buy this if you don't have any idea what you would need to get started (and maybe if you have no background at all in programming, because the book does an okay job of explaining very simple code) and it will give you a basic supply of components and a book and board to get you going; however, due to the nature of the beast, it will force you to do a lot more studying than the book can provide if you plan on doing anything more than blinking an LED or making a servo respond to a (extremely cheap!) potentiometer. Most of your study is going to be free online anyway.

Knowing what I know now I would have gone for the Elegoo complete starter kit, which is both cheaper and has many more components.
The book is nice and well presented, but actually quite annoying when you’re trying to build a project from it as you need to put something heavy on it to keep it open. You’re going to need a computer anyway, might as well get a kit with online/CD tutorials.
Furthermore it is clear that said book is written for children, as are the projects.
Overall I’d say it does the job, but costs far too much for what you get.
Again this is not a comment against the kit. It looks really good. My pain is with whoever thought it was okay to send an open box AKA used kit.
Ora io avevo acquistato lo starter kit nella speranza di poter imparare qualcosa dal manuale ma essendo tutto in francese non capisco nulla...
Das Kit stammt entgegen der ausdrücklichen Beschreibung NICHT von arduino.cc (Gründergruppe), sondern von arduino.org (ehemals offizieller Hersteller).
Entsprechend verweisen alle Informationen z.B. im Handbuch auf arduino.org. Hier kommt es zum Problem mit der unterschiedlichen Versionierung der IDE. Die IDE von arduino.org hat zwar eine höhere Releasenummer, hinkt der IDE von arduino.cc aber in einigen Funktionen hinterher. Mehr dazu siehe hier: [...]
Wenn man ein Produkt so offensichtlich einem bestimmten Hersteller zuschreibt, sollte auch dafür gesorgt werden, dass der Ursprung der Lieferung mit der Angabe übereinstimmt. Das Gegenteil ist hier der Fall, daher minimale Bewertung.
Die Hardwareausstattung unterscheidet sich abgesehen von den Verweisen auf arduino.org nicht von dem Umfang des Kits von arduino.cc. Wer damit also zufrieden ist braucht sich nicht daran gehindert fühlen das Produkt zu kaufen.
