My daughter is 6, and I had to hold on to the spool while she used the plastic needle to pull the stitch off the spokes.

This spool knitting kit was a great way to share my childhood craft experience with my grandkids. It was fun and easy for them to pick up. The extras in the package were good to add on to the spool knitting to make interesting decorations and jewelry.

Purchased this for my 6-yr old who learned to knit recently, thinking it would be an easy, fun craft toy based on previous reviews. The instructions were for the most part easy to follow, but it did take me a good while to figure out how to "spool" knit properly. They also have a section about "tubing", but I need more time to figure out how to do that. Those instructions were confusing IMO. Overall, would recommend for children ages 8 and older since it does require some dexterity and adult help for younger kids. My daughter is 6, and I had to hold on to the spool while she used the plastic needle to pull the stitch off the spokes. Not what I expected for a toy marketed for ages 6+ but still a good craft toy IMO for the older ones.

I bought this for my six-year-old son, and he loved it. His goal was to use up all the yarn to make the longest knitted rope he could. The yarn quality in this kit is low (it doesn't stay twisted very well) but my son didn't care. The plastic tool they provide is not very useful, so I substituted a plastic crochet hook. I think this toy helped him with small motor skills.

We got this for my niece who loves crafts and she really enjoyed it. She made a flower bracelet like shown in the picture and then just let her imagination take her! It was easy for her to pick up and a great way to introduce her to yarn crafts. She's eager to try knitting soon!

I purchased this about 18 months ago for my daughter's 5th birthday. I had never done or seen spool knitting before, so I looked at the instructions to learn how to do it. Those instructions were totally useless for me. Couldn't begin to figure out what they were trying to get me to do. I then found a Youtube video that was so incredibly clear and easy to understand /watch?[...], and started using the spool from this kit. But it was quite hard to use and I ended up with carpal tunnel type symptoms that put my hand out of commission for a couple weeks. It has caused problems off and on since then, and prior to that, I'd never had hand/wrist problems. A couple months ago, I found out you can easily make your own spool. I used a toilet paper tube, craft sticks, and duct tape. I covered the tops of the craft sticks with the duct tape (helps the yarn slide and not get caught in the splintering craft sticks) and taped them at even intervals on the tube. Works like a charm! My 3 oldest kids (8, 6, and 5 this week) can now do spool knitting :) You might also want to check[...] for more great spool knitting info.

Pros: Comes with fun yarn colors, things to embellish the projects, and a few projects to make.

Cons: Written instructions are pitiful, spool is very hard to use, and the inside of the spool is very rough, making it hard to get the yarn through the very narrow center.

I had one of these when I was little and it was fun to make a long rope of knitted yarn to use in projects, but this particular knitting device isn't sanded or sealed inside the hole where the rope comes out, so it doesn't just come out. You have to pull on it regularly. This proved to be much more difficult and my kids got pretty frustrated. I wish this was a little better made so it was easier to use, like the one I had as a child.

a cool kit, but the wooden spool knitter could be a little better made. It's fine and my daughter likes it.

Cool Spool knitting is not easily doable for the age cited on the package. It was not simple for me- an experienced knitter- to start and managing the spool took quite a bit of dexterity. I do not think that even a seven year old who is very good with crafts would be able to manage this item, let alone a 5 year old.
