This is an amazing machine that actually does what other "toy" sewing machines claim to do--with that being said it is not a sewing machine but actually a felting machine (however, from a child's standpoint and non-sewers it will be one in the same). To give this an honest review you should know a little about sewing yourself, used other toy sewing machines, and understand how this machine works and how a real sewing machine works. I will go over each in my review. 1. I teach sewing classes, knit, crochet, felt, and embroider. I have operated and taught my students to use sergers and embroidery machines and now for the first time used a felting machine.2. All other TOY sewing machines I have used operate by using a chainstitch and no bobbin. The stitches in the toy machines do not hold b/c there is only an upper thread and no lower thread (bobbin) to knot together with the upper thread to hold it in the fabric. In basic terms--as soon as the fabric is removed from the machine the stitches come out and the fabric is no longer held together (which is the point of the sewing machine). A real sewing machine only holds b/c of the upper and lower thead knotting together to hold the stitching, it's impossible to do without a bobbin.3. You can ONLY USE FELT nothing else will work because THIS IS NOT A SEWING MACHINE BUT A FELTING MACHINE.The felt is fed underneath of the needles and what is actually occurring is that the fibers from the felt become entangled with each other when the 3 upper and lower needles move up and down. This causes the fibers from the felt to bind together forming a "seam" without thread. The seam isn't held together by thread but is formed from the small fibers binding together. Surprisingly, it looks like you sewed the pieces together with a strand of yarn, especially to a child. The longer it is held underneath of the needles the stronger the two fabrics bind together. Which is a good thing with beginners and young children.4. The whole point of the machine is to sew fabrics together, this is the only toy machine that will do that and hold them together. 5. If your child is old enough get them a real machine if this isn't what you want but for a young or easily distracted child this is amazing and will do exactly what you want it to do.

My 7 year old LOVED this machine. I sew and she was delighted to be able to sew along with me on her own machine. She was careful and followed the instructions and still a needle broke. I contacted customer service and they were super friendly when they told me that the needles "Never break" and there are no replacement needles nor is the machine designed to be taken apart in order to replace or fix parts. Nice. So now my girl is in tears because her machine is broken and I don't want to shell out another $50 for something that will only last a few months. Very disappointed.

Its a great intro level sew kit especially for my child who typically has a hard time learning how to use new toys. She's LOVED it and can make items independently.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Working Parent
My daughter got this for Christmas & 1st time we tried to use it to make the cup cake the needles seized & wouldn't sew through the layers of fabric. Also tried using a single layer of fabric but still very difficult to use. Have contacted customer services & have a case reference but waiting for a full response. Very disappointed as my daughter also has a separate pack of kits to make & a pack of extra fabric.
Please heed...do NOT waste your money!

Just like the other 1 star reviews, I supervised my 6 yo old daughter while she used this 1 time on Christmas. It stopped working before she even completed all of the enclosed projects!! There is no blinking light.... It just stopped working. The worst part is I read the negative reviews before purchasing and went ahead with it anyway! Don't be like me.

Used a few days. Followed directions. Toy is broken and unfixable. Don't waste your money.
Broke after an hour!
from Chicago, IL
Bought this for my 9yr old daughter for Christmas this year. She loved it! She made most of the projects that came with it and a separate kit. After that the fabric kept getting stuck in the machine. I am able to replace the machine at the store, but she no longer has interest as she is upset it is broke. She doesn't want the new one to break again. May just return and get her a different brand/machine.
piece of junk
By mom of an artist
It was broken right out of the box!!! My daughter didn't even get to sew anything. From the start the lights were blinking and the felt got stuck because the needles stalled and refused to let it go. had to manual wind them back up and took a closer look at the plastic that contains the needles and ofcourse I see there is a loose broken piece of a needle. After reading so many reviews of others having the same problem its obvious the company knows its selling a piece of junk and doesn't care!!
