I'm even upset I have to give it any stars at all on this review.
SI
The chain stitch is so loose it barely holds the fabric together and forget trying to turn anything inside out!

I would recommend purchasing a regular basic sewing machine over this one any day.

My daughter asked for one thing from Santa this year: a kid's sewing machine. I purchased this machine because:

1. it was cheap and small (yes, I understood that this was a TOY and wouldn't sew very well. I just needed it for a 4-year-old to sew paper and scrap fabric with)

2. it carried the respectable name SINGER, so I (wrongly) assumed that it would at least work.

The machine sewed ONE STITCH before jamming. It's total junk. Do not waste your money.

This machine does not work. I will be returning it to find a better "first" machine for my daughter. The stitiches do not hold, every instruction was followed to the letter. It is not worth even 4 cents, much less 14 dollars. I would have paid more for something that acutally works. I'll keep looking

Well, here I am one more dissatisfied customer! You would think someone from Singer would read these and do something about it!! "It Really Sews!" I think we could get them on false advertising. What a crock and waste of time and money. Please do yourself and your child a favor, "DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!" The frustration and dissapointment is not worth it. Another Duped Customer.

My daughter was very excited to receive this for Christmas, until she tried to change the thread that came with the machine. It literally would not work anymore. I tried everything. Maybe it's defective.....but from other reviews I read, I think it's just a really bad attempt at a great idea. Too bad....she is very disappointed....

I got this for my daughter who will be 10 in Feb. She has wanted a sewing machine very badly. This one is made of cheap plastic, and no matter how many times we read the instructions and try to close the end, as soon as we remove it, it unravels. I think I'd spend more money and get something better. As my daughter says "It's very irriating."

We purchased this for our daughter as a Christmas gift. What a nightmare. First of all, the scissors it came with...well let's just say my teeth cut better. This scissor is so DULL we'd be willing to allow our three year old to handle it. It cuts NOTHING. This sewing machine comes with one tiny square of material, so you have to be sure to have material on hand if you want your child to actually attempt sewing something. It's incredibly difficult and frustrating to thread the needle. The stitches are way too loose and break apart at the slightest touch. There is no bobbin, so there's nothing to hold your stitch together. We wanted to make a simple little pillow for my daughter's dolls...wishful thinking! The minute you attempt to turn your project right-side-out, the stitches come apart and you have NOTHING. My daughter just walked away. We can't believe Singer would be the maker of this 1.99 piece of plastic.

I am an avid sewer and have a small business selling my handmade items all sewn with an adult Singer machine. So when my daughter received the child's Singer Chain Stitch machine as a gift for her 5th birthday she truly felt like she could follow in Mommy's footsteps. It brings tears to my eyes when I see how absolutely frustrated and defeated she has become trying to sew on this poorly constructed, poorly functioning plastic machine. It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to thread and often takes in excess of 20 minutes to finally get the thread through the needle that is almost completely blocked by the safety presser foot. Once it is finally threaded, the thread easily slips out. The chain stitch is so loose it barely holds the fabric together and forget trying to turn anything inside out! The project will literally fall apart. All of this has turned what should be a creative bonding experience into a disappointment. I never thought the Singer name would be the name that turned my daughter off on sewing. Singer needs to be alerted to the fact that this product is a blight on the Singer name.
