Highly recommended

Review by Dennis

A wonderful starter kit from a solid company! We have students who are using this to learn.

Very nice

Review by Greg

Glad to have a genuine Arduino. I bought this to do some teaching with Grandson. I think that I am enjoying it more.

Couple this with some YouTube videos and I am well on my way to having some great fun.

Very Good

Review by Jeff

Buy this kit, take out one or more Arduino beginner books from the library and start inventing.
Only problem was that it took a minute or so to realize one has to slide the black plastic pin holders on the header pins to make a good connection between the servo motor and breadboard. Otherwise the kit has been bullet proof!

Awesome starter kit!

Review by Peter

Being new to 'coding' this year, I wanted to get a handle of the possibilities of the Arduino. I have a basic knowledge of the components, but computer science and engineering is not my formal background.
The learning tasks included in the manual are fantastic at getting to know the board and the differences between the components.
A definite recommend if you're looking to explore the Arduino!

Great way to start

Review by John

This kit not only has a bunch of starter projects but also contains enough extra bits to start making your own projects. The book is really quite well written given good background explanations for the programming.

(Posted on 3/6/17)

Great starter kit

Review by Ben

This is a great starter kit for those with little or no experience with electronics. The book does a very good job of explaining how everything works from the most simple aspects to more complex. I tried to learn some of the arduino programing before I bought this kit and I was quite lost, but this kit really helped me out.

Great product, great price, fast shipping

Review by Kyle

The starter kit is a great introduction to simple electronics and programming with the Arduino. The manual is easy to follow along with, and projects work well. There are some small typos and odd explanations, but it works great as a starting point for anyone interested in exploring microcontrollers.

Excellent starter kit - even for adults

Review by sashiee6

My husband wanted to learn more about electronics so I bought this for him as a birthday gift. He loved it! He has built three projects within a few days and is eager to try the next one in the book. This kit is ideal for a beginner of any age. A couple of minor snags were: 1) The USB cable they provided in the box did not work for him. Maybe because he uses a Mac. But he just used one of his own USB cables and then it worked fine. 2) He found the smaller, lightweight font a little hard to read.

My kids love it

Review by Marc

I got one of these kits for my girls to work through, so far they are enjoying it. I also got another kit for my nieces so they could do the same. The book seems well done and the projects are easy enough to follow, but teach good skills.

(Posted on 8/5/16)


Review by Michael

Good starting kit, but beware - the diagrams in the manual do NOT match what should actually be done. The cable colors are wrong, and certain parts are bigger than listed on the diagram and wires need to be put in different places. If you already know what you're doing its not that difficult, but if you're a starter there's a lot of potential to be confused.

(Posted on 5/21/16)


Review by Robert

This was my first purchase to get into the Arduino world. I could not have asked for a better one! Great assortment of parts, and the book that accompanies the kit is perfect to learn from. Explains everything you need to know from ground 0 to get going. I am very glad I clicked on this one. There's no turning back now!

(Posted on 5/3/16)

Great for what it is!

Review by Jawad

There are definitely cheaper kits out there, and you can buy all the parts individually at an even lower cost. However the kit is easy and the projects that come along encourage you to keep learning. I am very happy with this product and it is well worth the money.

Good starter kit.

Review by Pharoah

The only thing this kit lacks is a tutorial project about wireless control. Something to do with wifi or infrared would be awesome, but I'm giving it 5-stars nonetheless because this kit provides a great foundation, using which I've moved on to IR control modules purchased separately.

(Posted on 2/5/16)


Review by Daniel

The kit is great, I'm having a lot of fun learning the basic stuff. I already plan the creation of a quadriped from scratch (and other small projects).

Adruino Starter Kit (Arduino.org not .cc)

Review by Snipes

Received my product in a timely fashion.
It was packaged secure, and thoroughly.

Starter kit is great for those that are just starting out with programming and electronics.

I am half way through book, and already planning many projects.

** Note this kit is from Arduino.org not Arduino.cc, if that matters to you.

Comprehensive starter kit

Review by Enrico

This is a well organized kit with good guidance through-out the 15 projects listed in the book.
You learn the programming language while writing the code provided for each project, however a section with the syntax of the various elements of the programming language is missing.
Some parts in the kit are not used in the projects, so it is up to you to figure out how to use them.

(Posted on 12/28/15)

Excellent introduction to DIY electronics

Review by Johann

The quality of the Arduino is excellent and the kit contains almost everything necessary to do the projects in the book.

The explanations given in the instruction manual are clear and the projects are a good source of inspiration for later personal projects.

I recommend however to have ready a compartment parts box because there are a lot of parts delivered with the kit!

Excellent Arduino starter kit

Review by Jason

This was my first purchase with Robotshop and everything was delivered quickly and without problems.

The Arduino projects are simple and easy to use. A great way of starting out with robotics/electronics and programming Arduino.

I didn't have much luck with the most recent Arduino software (I think it was still in testing) but the older software worked without a problem.

Already looking for other purchases from this site.

Very pleased

Review by Norman

This is exactly what I wanted to get started with micro processors. With a little imagination you can make variations of and expand upon each Project. The price was the best available at the time.
I want to get into Robotics and believe I am off to a good start with this kit
I expect to do more business with RobotShop.

Excellent Starter Kit

Review by Dobbie

Purchased this for myself (29yo Apprentice Electrician) and I love it, the kit contains a lot of neat components, the project book explains electronics and programming quite well and all in all this is an excellent introduction to microcontrollers. Would definitely suggest to others, young, and old. (Young me would have loved this kit many moons ago)

Fast, Good Value, Fun - Not to Learn Programming With

Review by H.

Great product. The shipping and the price were excellent. No issues, and I'm learning a lot about arduino.

You can use this product if you are a complete novice programmer, however, it will teach you basically nothing about programming.

Their target appears to be new electronics enthusiasts with some programming background. Minimal programming experience is sufficient.

Fast Shipping! Product as good as expected

Review by Hallyson

I recommend this product. It arrived fast and has a good quality. Just as expected

(Posted on 5/8/15)

Fast Shipping! Product was just as described!

Review by Igor

I received my product very fast after I ordered it!
Arduino has high quality products, which I already knew, so it is a great starter kit to get into programming/robotics, etc...

I bought it mainly because of the projects book, I wanted to get a solid foundation on this stuff, so I bought the kit to have the book to guide me.
One thing I noticed with the book, is that some pages are kind of loosely binded, I mean this does not affect the learning experience, but just something I wish was better.

I recommend this product to anyone interested in robotics, tinkering with microcontrollers.

(Posted on 5/5/15)

Excellent Arduino kit

Review by Jerry

I had to get the official Arduino Starter Kit for a class I'm taking that follows the 15 projects. I already had an Arduino and had done some related work, but the kit is the only place I found to get the Arduino Projects book. With shipping the components alone would probably cost more than the kit if bought individually, so it was a good value regardless.

I took the class for a specific application, and the fifteen projects gives a person a good general understanding of the Arduino and its programming. Highly recommended.

Review by Tongkat

Bought the Arduino kit for my son as a Christmas gift and it has turned out to be a hit. Both he and I enjoy learning and creating. Great product, fast delivery and painless process. Plus the website is very well laid out and easy to navigate. There are tons of products available - almost limitless. Highly recommend RobotShop to anyone with an inquisitive and technical mind

(Posted on 1/13/15)

Great kit for novices

Review by rootofgood

Just purchased the kit and am now working on project 7. It comes with enough supplies for the projects in the book and to make a few of your own too.

The book explains a great deal of knowledge with electronics and coding. On a side-note the Arduino website reference page goes more in depth with structures, variables, and functions just in case one were to purchase this kit and be confuse with the programming elements.

I recommend purchasing this kit to anyone who wants to get their feet wet and explore. I'm loving my time with the Arduino.

Great kit to get to know about electronics and programming

Review by Ali

Wanting all my kids to be computer/technology literate, I bought this kit for my son to get him started. Set-up and getting to the first project was clearly explained and easy. My son did encounter a problem on the second project - "Spaceship" where the code sample in the book kept compiling with an error. Turns out when you retrieve the code from within the Arduino window, the code is different: it didn't have the offending code error as it did not include the INPUT from the book. We're plodding along having lots of fun and hope that there will not be anymore errors. Despite this, I highly recommend this kit.

(Posted on 1/2/15)

So far so good.

Review by Pierre

I have done 5 projects out of the 15 so far. Documentation is of excellent quality and the item work no problem.

Only small issue is that the instructions in some projects call for 220 Ohms resistors but the kit has what looks like 221 Ohms resistors; the last bands looks like it's dark brown instead of black. Maybe my eyes are deceiving me as men my age start having color blindness issues :p

A great starting point

Review by Sarah

My husband was thrilled to receive the Arduino starter kit as a birthday gift. He built some projects in the book right away and has been coming up with all sorts of plans for his own. It's a great launching point.

Everything you need to start learning Arduino!

Review by Todd

I received this very quickly from Robot Shop and I'm very pleased. It was my first endeavour into learning Arduino, a very nice bundle of goodies was available to start with and the book is very helpful and well written.
I'll recommend this to anybody else interested in hacking electronics.

(Posted on 8/28/14)

Complete and nice

Review by Martin

You get introduced to electronic basics through simple projects. I had a bit of a hard time downloading the compiler (it got stubbornly stuck at 99% download) but I managed to install it. I figure it had more to do with m'y antivirus or something lime that.

Really nice product!

(Posted on 8/12/14)


Review by Vito

Just got this delivered (very quickly I might add) and was almost floored with how well packaged this kit came across, everything packed has a purpose 15 projects you can dive in for hours of fun and excitement. A great tool indeed to learn about the arduino and and it the guide wont disappoint as it is in colour for easy reading, the code can by type but you can find them online to copy and paste into the IDE. I would definitely reco this kit to anyone. Just pick up a 9v battery for on the go fun.

Great Kit for any Beginner

Review by Alex

It is a complete starter kit for beginners to Electric Circuits and Programmable Micro-controllers.

The Arduino on its own will prove useful for any small project, from simple flashing lights to controlling large automated robots (as in my experience).

The booklet provide several projects to get you learning, but can also prove very useful as a quick reference or for code sample for your own projects.

The components provided are enough to build much more complex circuits and devices than the book describes. For those who want to start learning transistor logic, signal amplification or just see what active components do this kit is great. It does lack some of the common electronic components such as an Op-Amp or a 555 timer; though most clock requirements can be easily programmed into the Arduino.

This starter kit may appear to be geared for High School students, but it is the popular choice for many of the Second and Third year engineering students, including myself, to build control systems for our projects.

...and it does not require very much knowledge before you start.
