I am looking to buy some electronic kits and found these guys on ebay.  Can any one vouch for them or suggest more reputable ones?

Jimmy, thanks for the suggestion.  I have used them before.  The nice feature is their kits are well documented etc.  I have bought their RS-232 level shifter board and some other stuff from them.

If it helps, I am looking more for an electronic design kit that has a vanilla assortment of analog, linear, SMTs, through hole components.  I could easily just go on digikey and spend sometime on there but wanted to support the smaller guys like the adafruits, and sparkfuns of the hobby industry.

Thanks

General "kit stores" are becoming fewer, and those that are around tend to specialise in one particular area (e.g. Arduino shields, RF things etc.)

Rainbow Kits has a horrible 1997-looking website, but nice kits (which actually provide some explanation of how they work, unlike some kits):

Some of the kits are available from Jameco, if you happen to be ordering from them.
