The older (non-USB) versions of some of these boards are nice:
The 200 board allows programming a bunch of little AVR chips, some
of them 8-pin.
The Mega128 board gives you a processor with a lot more capability,
two real serial ports if I remember correctly, plus lots of other
AVR's are top-notch 8-bit processors, Flash and RAM on-board.
Re-flash them again and again. You can even do that on your
end-user boards if you design them correctly. Your mileage may
vary. I'm not sure whether that last statement applies
across-the-board to all AVR's as some of them have very few pins!
It might though.
