Future fabulous fashion designers can bring their ideas to life in miniature using a real sewing machine, mannequins and fun fabrics! The female mannequin torsos on a stand are 8.5" high and made of smooth white plastic. You have a selection of fancy fabrics in a variety of prints and textures. The sewing machine itself is battery-operated (4 AAs - not included) and is about 6" wide, 3" deep and 6" high. It comes threaded, stitches a chain stitch and there is no bottom thread. The machine does go pretty fast and would probably not be good for a child who has never used a machine before. Adult supervision is certainly a good idea. I tried to see if I could stick my finger in by the needle, and you really can't; it's a safe design with a protected needle. The Haute Couture set includes a more basic model of the sewing machine, while the sewing machine in the Bridal Party and Premier Collection sets include a foot pedal. The instruction book guides the user through planning designs, using the patterns, cutting the fabrics, and sewing garments. Once they try several projects from the instruction book, they will likely be ready to try out their own variations and even create original designs! The size of the mannequins matches that of most 11" fashion dolls, so young designers can sew custom clothes for their dolls! You may have a future fashionista on your hands! Please note that scissors are not included in any of the kits, but you will need them. ~ Sara
