I had seen mention of this computer kit a while ago on Kickstarter, but it looks like they are now on sale at Amazon, Toys R Us and Barnes and Noble for $150 USD.
These kits are designed to be highly kid friendly and give them an introduction into the world of computers, technology and coding your own projects. Sure, you can buy a Raspberry Pi and all these components on your own, but the convenience of purchasing this kit, along with the designed activities might make it a little easier for you (and your kids) to get started immediately.
