Gifting a gopigo kit

I’m putting together a xmas gift for my teenage son interested in robotics. I’m a professional python & linux developer, so that part I’ll have no trouble with. But I need guidance on putting together the right parts for a soup to nuts robotic kit.

Afaict, I can just buy 1 of everything listed at and the rest is a minor matter of software (as we like to say). Do I have that right, or is there something else I should be getting (besides screwdrivers and the like)?

Yeah, you should go ahead and buy one of each on the page to get the most out of the GoPiGo. All you’ll need apart from this is a screwdriver.

Hope that you have a great time with the GoPiGo and do share the projects that you end up making.
