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.

Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Sew Cool Sewing Machine:
My daughter LOVES her Sew Cool Machine and cannot get enough of the kits and sewing patterns. The machine is durable and has lasted over a year without having to change the batteries. Safety is not an issue at all and I feel confident leaving her to use the machine independently. We can't wait for new kits to be released!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Do not waste your money
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
My daughter was so excited to get sew cool for her birthday. After only using the machine 3 times, the felt started to get stuck. We were not able to find a way to fix the problem. The toy is basically useless now. She is so disappointed. This toy looks like a great idea, but is poorly made and poorly designed. Follow the advice of the negative reviews and do not waste your money.
Absolute Piece of Garbage
By Disappointed Mother

About Me Working Parent
Product broke after one use - two of the 'needles' snapped. Called customer service of manufacturer and was told they do not have replacement parts or repair service. Item has only a 30 day warranty which leads me to believe they are aware of the issues with the product. It is a shame because my daughter really enjoyed playing with it - for less than an hour before it broke. I can ensure you she was not being rough or misusing as I was watching and helping her. I would have been better off just throwing my money in the garbage! Very disappointed!

Granddaughter loves it!!
About Me Grandparent
Bought this for my 7 yr old granddaughter for Christmas. It has been a big hit! She loves it! Since she is just 7, I do supervise and help on some of the tighter corners, but we have had no problems with the machine. I bought some of the additional kits and they are adorable. No complaints. It would be nice if you had the option to run it with electricity, but still consider it a great toy.

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
My daughter got it for Christmas and I thought it was a great idea. It worked the first day she used it. After that it never works right. Always gets caught and the lights are always blinking. We are following all the directions. Its very frustrating for her cuz she was really excited about it. They really need to make improvements to this machine especially how much they are charging for this. I would not recommend this to anyone. Waste of money!!!!

My 6 year old daughter received this for Christmas and LOVED it....UNTIL the needles broke and the only way to fix it is to send it back to the manufacturer or buy another one! It's ridiculous because its a fabulous idea but it is poorly made

Waste of my time and money. Item is overpriced. Does not use thread. Only works with fabric that SEW COOL sells separately. I returned the item. Its a pointless purchase.

Was good for a week.
I thought it was the best thing in the world when she first got it and started to sew so many cute things. Within a week, one of the needles/pins was bent and there is no way to get in under the plastic enclosure to fix it. Because of the bent needle, any piece of felt fabric you put in there jams. Haven't found any way to replace or repair so the machine is basically useless at this point.
