Grab a microcontroller and some free software dev tools. Stuff like the
PIC16F84 or Atmel AVR series would be suitable, easy enough to make
programmers. Plus assembly isn't all you learn from putting something

Jaycar have kits that do what you want but may cost $50 or so. Check out
their web site. But you don't need a kit at all if your friend isn't
afraid of a breadboard and some electronics.

I tend to think that somebody learning that level of computing should
also get a feel for the electronics it relies on.
