There's no point in starting out with an inferior guitar. Some of these kits are packaged to attract gift buyers.
The problem with that is they're often bought on the basis of attractive packaging, coupled with low price, and can be of poor quality. Nothing is more likely to put off a budding classical guitarist than a difficult to play, difficult to keep in tune guitar.
If you're planning to buy an acoustic classical guitar kit for a beginner here are a few tips;
1.) Don't go for a cheap kit. If it's too cheap, then it's a toy.
2.) Play safe. There are kits by well-known manufacturers, such as Hohner, Encore and Yamaha at reasonable prices. You're not going to get a concert quality guitar, but it will be playable.
It's in the interest of these companies to see beginners progress to better instruments in their range. You can get a kit built around one of the Yamaha C40 classical guitars for around $150. Below this sort of figure it's a toy not a serious guitar.
The following holds true with so many things, but it's especially important when you're trying to encourage someone to learn to play classical guitar.
Decide on a budget, and then buy the best quality classical guitar kit you can for that price.
