    I purchased the cutest little Child's Singer on eBay. There was no manual with it but I figure "I" could guess how to work it. NOT...well I can thread it but I don't know how to get into the bobbin case. There seems to be a plate right under the pressure foot but I can't get it to move.

    It has the tinest foot pedal and runs off batteries. I bought her for my DGD but wanted to "play" with her myself. I can't wait until my DGD sees her!! :)

    Any info is appreciated. There is no model # on the machine...Just the Singer word. It is pink and light beige.

    Thanks!

    Is this an older vintage type machine or a new one? Do you have a picture or maybe the ebay auction number so we can see what it looks like?

    I recently bought a child's vintage machine and it doesn't have a bottom thread. It makes a chain stitch with only the top thread. I wonder if yours is the same?

    you can visit the singer web site- and request a manual for it. there is a little book to go with that machine....was it used?
    my granddaughter had one a few years ago- it did not last long- i bought her an $89 brother from wallyworld very soon after that little singer (she was 4 at the time)

    I used to have an old Singer when I was a kid and it only did chain stitch, but it was manual. Funny to think of it as Vintage... Does that mean I am getting old??? Lol

    Here is the eBay listing. I never thought about it just doing the chain stich but makes sense because the needle is protected from little fingers.

    I'll check out the manual!!
