Description: The SparkFun Beginner Parts Kit is a small container of parts frequently used by beginning (or even experienced) hobbyists that gives you all of the basic through-hole components you will need to get started playing with embedded projects. These are the “bubble gum” parts that we regularly use or have often seen requested in classes. Inside this kit you will find a good starter assortment of caps, ICs, regulators, diodes and good-for-blinky LEDs. This kit also features our Adjustable Parts Box for better organization.
This assortment of parts makes a great gift for beginner and advanced electronics nerds! Whether you’re starting an electronics collection, or just refilling, the Beginner Parts Kit will have a lot of what you need.
You may notice there are no resistors in this kit. We recommend purchasing the resistor kit listed below for all the resistor values you may need.

Thought through set of commonly used parts for a good price. Box is very convenient and good quality product. Label on top of the box with the list of parts is small but extremely useful addition which differ this product from competitors.
I’m just a rookie but each time I seek out a new project my parts kit seems to have what I need!
The kit does a good job with great assortment of all basic components. But I felt the lack of a small power source, like a Lipo battery with small DC-DC to get 5V or 12V, to power up your basic project. And resistors, of course. I really like to switch the 7-segment for a couple of 1/4W resistors. They are the most missed component in the kit. But the kit is awesome.
