Overall, a fun toy for an older child.
Toy Lover
When I started sewing, I was not able to get the tension adjusted properly and then the bobbin cover kept coming loose and actually fell back into the machine.

I would not recommend the Alix sewing machine as a tool for teaching children to use a sewing machine.

We got this sewing machine for my 10 year old daughter for Christmas. The kit comes with materials to make a skirt and a handbag. We have done the handbag, and my daughter had fun doing it. She felt a great sense of accomplishment sewing her own bag! I did help her through the project though. This is definitely an item that requires some adult supervision (and patience!) depending on the age of the child. I would not buy this for a child any younger than 8 or 9. My 10 year old is young enough that she can have fun with it, but old enough that she can grasp the basic concepts of sewing and using a machine. I had to go step by step with her through the directions, but the included patterns are not overly challenging. I am somewhat experienced with a sewing machine, so someone with little to no experience might find this toy a nuisance. Overall, the machine itself seems well made and easy to use. It comes with a foot pedal and power supply. My only complaint is that there is no light. Even in a well lit room, we found it difficult to see our work area. I found a desk lamp in the basement and we had to set that up next to the machine. Overall, a fun toy for an older child.

My daughter likes this product a lot. It is great for new sewers. The only thing I did not like was it has no back stitch making it a pain to pull thru and tie off every seam.

I really loved this product in theory, and the 4 times my daughter used it, it worked wonderfully! She loved to sew, and I though we had bought a winner! But when we attempted to change the bobbin thread, the machine would not pick up the bottom thread, even though we followed the instructions to the letter! I sent 4 e-mail to the manufacturer with no response and I'm taking the machine to my local repair shop to see if they can determine the problem with it! Too bad, I really wanted this to be the great toy it had the potential to be.

My 7 year old daughter loves this toy and she can use it pretty much all by herself. It is very durable. We know because twice it crashed to the floor when someone tripped over the cord. It didn't break.

I love to sew and my children are both anxious to join me. Last Christmas (2008), I shopped and shopped to find something reasonable for my 6 year old daughter to use along side me at the table. I read the reviews and thought I knew as much as I could about what I was getting us into with this machine. I never expected it to be perfect, or even great. I was just looking for something that could sew a seam and would let my daughter accomplish something fun. What a complete waste -- of our time, her anticipation and enthusiasm, and landfill space. What a bummer. Though the included kit and projects were cute, and what I have come to expect from Alex toys (which I have otherwise been delighted with over the years), the machine is awful. I don't see how the suggested projects could be adequately completed with this machine. I recently purchased a full sized, beginner machine for my daughter and certainly wish I hadn't spent the money or bothered with this one.

It doesn't work!!! My grandmother has been sewing her whole life and she couldn't get this machine to work. My daughter is so, so disappointed!

Ok. So I bought this machine for my 6 year old, and I think I have used it more often, but that's only because she's at school! We have made a couple of little bags(like in the directions) and a couple of pillows for her friends. So fun!haha SewFun. anyway-I've been trying to learn to use a sewing machine for awhile now, and I have a very complicated machine that I was intimidated by, after using this machine a couple times(because of simple straight forward directions)I am on my way! Now I can use mine and my daughter's! We have a great time! It's OUR time when we can sit together and use the machine! BTW-she can use it herself without my help, she just needed to practice at first!
