Klutz Jr.: My Simple Sewing

Three cheers for Klutz Jr. for creating a genuinely gender-neutral craft kit! My Simple Sewings presentation is a refreshing alternative to the typically girl-centric beading and bedazzling world. Klutz Jr. has put together a food and sweets sewing craft set with said items featured on the box. No children are shown on the packaging and parents told us that was a big help introducing it to both boys and girls. My Simple Sewing really shines when it comes to teaching the basics of sewing, and makes a good launching pad for children who want to delve deeper into sewing. The set teaches kids how to thread a needle, how to start stitching and how to end the project. There is no fear of pinpricks or botched projects because everything has been designed with four-to-five-year-olds in mind. If they make a mistake, its easy to remove the stitches and start over. The kit’s creators have designed some really adorable characters that appeal to kids. There’s a googley-eyed pizza, as well as a yummy looking cupcake and cookie. Before kids start working with the felt, they can try their hand at two cardboard practice projects — a donut and sandwich. These practice projects help kids get used to stabilizing their piece with one hand and using the needle and thread with the other hand. For the price point, this kit is jam-packed and is one of those rare toys that is not only educational and entertaining but also very rewarding.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
