Check your kit!

Check to make sure your kit comes with the following parts. Sometimes we make mistakes so double check everything and email support@adafruit.com if you need replacements!

Note that the parts list is slightly different depending on whether it is the latest v3.0 kit, older v2.0 or ancient v1.2 kit. Check the kit packaging to determine which version you have! If you have an older version, scroll down to find your parts list!

Also note that Altoids has discontinued their gum. We have identically sized tins in the store now.
