I am looking for a Christmas gift @$50 for my Godson. I'd like to get the best value for a starter Arduino kit.

TIA

REPS!

Look for an Arduino starter kit.
Also see about getting ESP8266 or a Wemos D1 instead of the UNO
D1 has wifi
look at D1 mini. That's what I use. It's not made to do what the D1 and UNO

Search Aliexpress for all those to see what you can get them for and compare to what you find stateside. You won't get aliexpress stuff before xmas

bulb save money by checking your insurance every 2 years (and not every 20) Thanks Liberty Mutual for reminding me to shop. The $842 increase this year sums it up. Across the board increase for Ohio....whatever

Depends a bit on age, skill level, and interest as well as access to relatives who can help.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

He is 14 and very smart. He could handle any kit I throw at him. He has asked specifically for hobby kits like this. I am just looking for the best brand and best value for the money. His dad would get into it as well.
