    It's not really a single "kit"...

    Eclipse Downloads Here's the IDE I use (I recommend the Java developers version, but it doesn't really matter which you grab, since you can download all the necessary tools from within eclipse).

    ADT Plugin | Android Developers This will give you a lot of really nice Android-specific things in eclipse.

    Java SE Downloads Here's the Java JDK. I'm not sure if this is necessary or not (since I already had it installed, prior to beginning Android development), but from a quick google search, it would appear that you will need this.

    Android SDK | Android Developers And finally, the Android SDK, which provides the tools you need to actually test your Android apps (without having to send all your compiles to your phone/tablet for testing).
