      Beware of this product! I bought this machine for my 8-year-old daughter as a Christmas present, thinking the name brand "Janome" would mean it would be great (I myself have a nice Janome machine, and run a business sewing/selling baby items on Etsy - what I'm trying to get at is that I'm an experienced seamstress). I helped my daughter set it up and thread it and it never got beyond a few stitches before jamming. I re-threaded hundreds of times, watched YouTube videos on tips, and finally took the machine to a local sewing machine repair shop. The owner took it back and worked on it himself, and came back feeling horrible to deliver bad news - which was that the timing was off and to fix it would cost more than the machine itself. He politely discouraged me from buying a "kid" machine for my daughter and spending a little more money on something that would last her life. Long story short, I threw the brand new (cute but useless) sewing machine in my trash bin.

      I used to teach sewing in the public schools so now that my granddaughters are old enough to learn, I bought two of these machines to teach them some basic skills. I just opened the box this morning to see what they are all about. First, they are not toys. If you know sewing at all, you know Janome is a high quality brand. The machines are a no frills machine with a couple of built in stitches and a tension dial. I wound a bobbin and so far that's the only thing I found a little sub-par. I had to help guide the thread so it would fill evenly. Not a big deal. It is noisy when running but acceptable. I practice ran the included stitches and found them to be quite nice. Three bobbins, a heeds threaded and two needles come with the machine. It does not have a light which is a negative but what do you expect for this price. I think they'll like it and I hope they will want to sew enough to advance to a larger, more sophisticated machine. Very cute and lightweight.

      My daughter loves to make bracelets, hair accessories, and put her own personal touch on everything. I cannot sew. I have tried knitting, sewing.....you name it. I am an expert with a glue gun though. With, that said, I was very nervous, I would not be able to figure out the sewing machine, even though it's kid friendly, but to my surprise, set up was easy and I was able to show my daughter how to use. She didn't need much instruction. So far we have just made outfits for her 18 inch dolls and purses. We are now working on a big project. Part of her Halloween costume. It's a lot of fun doing this with her. And I can now sew..... I don't care if it's with a kid's sewing machine, it's a lot fun. Just but it if you have a daughter who loves fashion and creating.

      This made a great gift for my neice. She is 8 and learning to sew so it is perfect for little sewers who outgrew their no-needle sewing machines.

    • A nightmare to say the least.
      Verified Purchase

      This machine is an utter nightmare to thread. I have spent the better half of the day watching every video on the web on how to thread this machine. And nothing, I mean nothing works. It will not loop the bottom thread through the top hole. I got it once, and the thread snagged and did not sew. Complete junk of a machine, I should have just bought the daughter a full sized Brother. Save your money, and the headaches and steer clean of this machine.
