ALEX® My First Sewing Kit™ is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Discouraging for First-Timers (and for me!) I would only buy this if you have a good coupon, otherwise the mediocre quality makes the regular price way too high. I like the pre-cut patterns. My 9-year-old daughter was able to do most of the work on the cat herself after I coached her through the process. However, the instructions are REALLY lacking detail. The needles are very flimsy-- pulling it through the button holes bent the eye of both needles, making them nearly impossible to thread. The thread itself very quickly unravels when you try to thread it through the needle, making the issue even worse. And finally, the device you use to pull thread through the needle (not sure of the name) broke the very first time I used to it to demonstrate how it works. My daughter has been a lot more frustrated with it than she should have been for a beginner project, but she's at least learned that not every hobby is fun every minute of the process. We will look for a better quality kit for her to learn further with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute projects, horrible instructions! I bought this for my son (7yo) to work on some handicraft projects for school. He was able to make the animals because there are pictures of them on the packaging. However, there was another project that was not pictured on the box, and even I could not figure out what it was supposed to be. Because this is labeled "my first sewing kit" I was expecting the instructions to be a little more helpful. The projects are fun and appropriate for beginner level, but the instructions were anything but helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my 4.5 yo My son was pretty excited to sew something after watching Creative Galaxy. He was able to do most of it by himself (with guidance). The pre-cut patterns were great, except for a few of the holes were too close to the and ripped, and several of the pre-cut holes were not holes at all. His experience was pretty positive and asked about sewing more things in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great projects Projects are unisex great for boys or girls and everything is precut. My boys really enjoyed putting together the stuffed animals and learned a lot about general sewing skills. Downfalls are the plastic needles break easily so we bought a metal cross-stitch needle as a replacement and the instruction book is pretty thin so a lot of parent help is needed in the begining till they understand how the project goes together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute and fun but terrible instructions The instructions are more than lacking if you have zero seeing experience. I think a basic knowledge is required (by parent of course)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flimsy needles Bought this for my daughter for her 8th birthday. Over all enjoyed using it. My complaint is the flimsy needles that don't fit through the buttons. Within 5 minutes of using one the the needles bent trying to sew on a button. The needle threader also broke after using it to thread only 3 times. I should mention that I was the one helping to helping to sew on the buttons and threading the needles for my daughter, so it wasn't a child pushing too hard. Ending up having to use a regular metal needle to sew on the button. On the positive it is cute and colorful and the aligning holes on the felt make it easy for a beginner to learn to sew.
