Replacement:KIT-10152. The new version of the kit includes the Arduino baseplate. This page is for reference only.
This new version of the SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK) now includes a flex sensor, a softpot, and a newer better trimpot with all new overlays! The SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino is a box of goodies to get the very beginner started with programmable electronics. It includes all the bits you need to build 12 basic circuits, no soldering required! On top of that, we've joined forces with Oomlout to offer a small booklet to get you started. The SIK comes with everything pictured and a 36 page color printed 'starter' guide. The guide will take a complete novice and get them:
Mixing LED colors
We believe these to be the building blocks of any electronics project. Once these concepts are mastered, very impressive projects are possible using simple recombinations.
Note: This kit will not include a base plate. We're pretty excited about how it's all coming together, but there are still some problems. We're working on getting a plastic plate to hold the Arduino next to the bread board. It's shown in the documentation, and it's coming! But we did not want to hold up this kit any longer. We will release a new kit once it's here and offer the plate separately as well.
Note: This product is a collaboration with Oomlout. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
No soldering required. We recommend this kit for beginners ages 10 and up.

Is there a version of this kit without the Arduino? And is the baseplate included? (just kidding!!!)
Which version of the Arduino is in here? DL 328 I hope? Didn't see it in the reference manual after a quick look.
It is the Duemilanove:
Is it the one based on the ATmega168 or the ATmega328?
It's the ATmega 328.
I'm planning on ordering one from Europe. Is there anything in this kit that is not compatible with the sockets used here (220V Schuko), for instance wall warts or anything? Can something go wrong because of the difference between the US and Europe standard? Or is the USB cable the only power supply?
For the kit, the USB cable is your power supply. You can purchase your own power supply separately that would suit your needs, or use a battery, or use USB.
I am comparing kits and wondering if this one includes a plate like the picture shows. Thanks.
Please read the description, and the comments directly above yours.
Does this include the base plate yet?
"Note: This kit will not include a base plate."
When it comes with the baseplate, we will have banners, buzzers, dancing clowns and all sorts of announcements. It does not include it yet.
I purchased this kit a few days ago and it didn't come with it, so I doubt it's been added since then.
