Saw this on amazon, regular price is 199. Thought it was a good deal for parents who are fed up with their kids. Great project although i haven't used yet i know people speak highly of these kits

EDIT: Turns out it’s just a RPi 3

EDIT 2: Found this - https://help.kano.me/hc/en-us/articles/ ... r-Software
for the technically challenged it's a good opportunity for your "kid" to learn how to put something together. sure you can go buy an ARM box but asking a 6 year old to assemble one is a different story.

I would better go to dell refurbished website and buy used computer there when it's discounted. It will be more expensive (about $40-50 more) but it will be a real pc capable of most real tasks and will serve your kid for many years, not just an expensive toy forgotten in a few days.
Your kid may do all the connections themself just google to know how if you are technically challenged.

Thanks OP

I heard about this product a few years ago from a buddy.

My kid is now 7 and is showing a huge interest in coding. This should be a good platform to start with.

Downvoted saying that it’s not a good price, but nothing in the thread offers any info on that claim. RFD anonymous downvote fail again.

What have you done to introduce your kid to coding? How do they even know about coding? I'm thinking my niece could do something like this in 3 or 4 years time. But never too early to do inception and get the idea in there.

What’s good for them to start with for hardware at Dell? And what is good for them to do on the software side? With the current situation I would appreciate some ideas for home learning. Thanks

My kid learns it in school. They have different types of robots that they program to do different functions. They also create code to develop mini games and music.
