Down in price again. I have the smaller uno arduino and this is the larger mega2560 with some nice components. Great way to escape the christmas joy and dissapear into your own little tinkering world...enjoy....

looks exciting!
Ordered, Cheers
Wooow, great deal! Heat added 🙌
The bigish blue thing towards the top right is an actual Arduino yeah? (i.e. this set doesn't require you to already have one). Fanx and Merry Christmas.
I'm pretty sure it's not an actual Arduino. It's a Chinese clone but should work mostly the same as a genuine Arduino.
I'd read some of the reviews before buying this. For example,

"At no point does the included course study EXPLAIN the universal question of "why" nor guide you through coding the Arduino (which let's face it, IS what Arduino is about), instead it guides you through physical connections of peripherals then tells you to load a pre-made script in order for it to run. Therefore you aren't learning anything about Arduino at all, but basic electronic circuit connections of which you have no ability to change since you don't know what any of it really means."

So if you're already a programmer looking for a cheap box of bits fine. But if you expect to learn how to code with this kit, forget it.

I hit that wall when i purchased the smaller arduino uno...but all you need to do is go and take a look at the tutorials on arduino.cc (the original board designers), youtube, lots of tutorial sites, free books etc. That is just laziness on the reviewers part where anyone with a bit of common sense would do 10 mins of research as most of the components are universal and the boards are all based off the original arduinos.

Yes its basically an identical clone in all ways as the arduino design is open source. Gotta love em for that I have the elegoo r3 uno which is the smaller board and its exactly the same architecture as the original. For this price though you are getting the board and all those lovely components to tinker with and like one reviewer stated on amazon...the components alone would be worth more.

I think I'll just stick to lego
I suppose this would interface/work with a Raspberry Pi too?
Is this or the microbit better for beginners?

I would say so. Reason - lots of parts. Maybe you can buy them cheaper, but if you calculate how much time it takes to find them - better buy this and done.
