The 200-in-One kits I had was pretty impressive, I agree, and very well organized. All the components were labeled by their actual names and values, with schematic diagram equivalents next to them. The spring terminals for connections also worked pretty well. About the only thing that really made it "kid" was the guide in the book (which I still have, it's a good electronics primer) which took the form of a talking 200-in-one kit.
