When your kids get older (like ages 9-12) it can be hard to find gifts for them that don’t cost hundreds of dollars (like a phone, tablet, computer, etc). Finding something that they will love and is educational, that isn’t an electronic device is another challenge. One of the things I found that my daughter (who is 10) will love is a sewing machine. While I realize that not all kids will love this – I think that it is extremely important to teach your kids basic life skills – and to me – sewing is one of them. The ALEX BRANDS Sew Fun Machine is the perfect way for her to learn.
This machine is a great size for little hands with a lot of safety features that give you peace of mind while allowing your child to learn. This is a real working machine that has two adjustable speeds and adjustable stitch lengths. This gives her some freedom in her sewing and lets her learn a little more about basic stitches.
The Sew Fun machine also has an easy drop in bobbin as well as a presser foot that is designed so that little fingers won’t get caught underneath. You can run the machine on batteries, or use the included AC adapter to power it. It also comes with 2 yards of fabric and ribbon and instructions on how to make a adorable wrap around skirt and tote bag.
I love all of the accessories that are included. It comes with everything that she needs to get started. It comes in a case that is perfect for storing the machine and its accessories in as well. In the case comes a real working sewing machine, (4) bobbins, (2) machine needles, threader, felt, pincushion, ric rac, (4) sewing needles, (40) straight pins, scissors, (4) spools of thread, (4) buttons, fabric, measuring tape, thimble, ribbon, AC adapter and instructions.
