Just wondering which is better or if they are both about the same except for size and cost? I have some Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket and was thinking about maybe purchasing the baby. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. Hope you all had a safe and very Merry Christmas :)

I think there are more dies for the GO, but I bet they are both nice!

I think there are 43 for the baby and 60 something for the go.

I have been contemplating the same thing - wondering if I would be happy with the Baby. I was reading on their website that the Baby does not accept 10"x10" or 10"x24" mats, so you have to figure out which dies would use those size mats and you'd know which dies you couldn't have. I THINK! :roll:

I have the Go and love it. I bought the strip cutters and use them a lot. These dies do not fit the Baby.
I would definitely go for the Go.

I think I read somewhere that the Baby uses about 60% of the dies that the Go uses.

I am looking at the Sizzix Big Shot Express (Electric). It uses all the Accuquilt dies and is electric instead of hand cranked. Cost is $100 right now at Joanns. It also uses the Sizzix dies. I think I will like that better than the hand crank. Sizzix also has a little machine comparable to the Baby for $15.

I saw that one too but when reading the reviews a few people said the motor blew after only using it a couple times. I wonder if the company fixed that problem yet or if the people who bought them were really using them a lot to blow the motor. Here are some of the reviews http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/r...3&product=true
