This is way cuter than I thought! Easier for younger kids I think, as the llama is already sewn other than a small hole to stitch up after he’s stuffed. The felt food it comes with is SOO cute! Bought this for my daughter on her 6th birthday and she LOVED it!

My granddaughter and I had a lot of fun with this kit. The instructions are clearly and simply written and illustrated, so a younger child with reasonable reading comprehension skills could follow them alone, but I was able to show her some basic sewing skills such as threading a needle (the needle and two threaders are included), tying a knot in a thread, and tying off a finished stitch. Only very basic whipstitch and over/under stitch are used, just right for a beginner. Best of all, the finished project is so cute, your beginner will feel very rewarded for the effort. We also added another dimension to the project by looking up alpacas on the web, learning a little about where they come from, and finding some Spanish words that might make good names for a pet alpaca. The opened box turns into a freestanding backdrop that can be colored, and the project includes folding together a small box that serves as both a stand for the alpaca and a place to store the smaller picnic pieces of felt bread slices, tomatoes, and so forth. This would also make a good project for two children of differing ages, since the alpaca and the picnic supplies are fun to play with even if one of the children is too young to sew. I think it would make a nice small gift for any child who enjoys crafts.

In terms of adorable this alpaca sewing kit really exceeds expectations. In contrast in terms of being fun, there is little to do and most of the fun is had with the finished product. Everything you need is included even the needle and thread. I would like to note that the needle is a large size and the thread is thick. So depending on the age of the child you may want to consider giving them a regular needle and thread which makes the finishing nicer. There is very little sewing involved, just the small space where you insert the stuffing. The face is sticky on the back and is meant to just stick on. However, I think it looks much better sewn on and is more durable for alpaca cuddles. We also added a bit more stuffing as we had some on hand. This activity best suits a younger child with some help or you can get this as an adult to make an adorable plush as a gift for a child. Either way, it’s really cute, so cute it makes up for some of it’s short comings and I still feel it deserves four stars.

This cute Creativity for Kids Alpaca Picnic Sew Easy kit is just the thing for a child who is intrigued by creating his/her own toy. The kit includes all the material that is needed to create this sweet stuffed alpaca and the accessories.
This kit is made for children from 7 years old and up. Depending on the age of the child, he/she may need some supervision to make the alpaca. Obviously, the older and more accustomed to handwork the child is, the easier it is for him/her to complete. When the kit is finished, the child will have two things - a new toy to play with and a sense of accomplishment upon completing the task.
I recommend the Creativity for Kids Alpaca Picnic Sew easy Kit highly for any child from 7 to 700. It is a fun learning experience.

My child had a lot of fun playing with this sewing kit. There are many fun things to sew- you add the stuffing yourself to the alpaca and stitch it closed. You also sew the backpack, and can sew the scarf attached. My child really enjoyed making a stuffed animal from scratch! The needle is hard to thread, and it is not obvious that the included thin plastic thread is used to thread the thicker string. In general, threading the included needle is difficult, especially for children. It is easy to sew with the needle, however, and it isn't too sharp making it safe around the kids. The alpaca finished as a really, super cute stuffed animal. My child was incredibly excited and satisfied to do all this sewing! Great activity that uses fine motor skills.

This was a fun kit for the kids to put together, but frankly there wasn't enough "activity" to the kit. The Alpaca is largely already sewn together. There is just a small hole for putting in the stuff. The hole was quite small and it was difficult to stuff, and there really wasn't enough stuffing either (my kids fortunately had some spare stuffing from another art project). The instructions were overly complex for what is essentially an easy project. In the end, it did make a cute stuffed animal, but most of the effort in this kit went to unnecessary parts like the picnic sandwiches. I have gotten "easy sew" kits before where you sewed the entire thing - this was just too much already done and not enough for the kid to do.

This craft set is a little much more “done” than I would expect. You don’t actually make the llama plushy. It comes already sewn. You sew on the face (more difficult since the plush is already sewn), stuff the body, and sew up a small hole. Kids really are capable of hand sewing a small plush. Other than it being sewn already, the set itself is cute and kid’s will have fun playing with it after. This is a very beginner project. I have kids ranging from newborn to 11 years old. This seemed most ideal for my 6 year old.

So cute - sew easy. This little Alpaca is a great sewing starter kit for anyone to create this guy. For first timers learning to sew, all pieces are included and instructions are easy to follow. Children or anyone will like making their own stuffed toy and learning the very basics of sewing. Then they get to weave a picnic blanket. You get lots of felt fixings to make sandwiches. You also get a bandana and an easy stitch saddlebag. You also get fluff to stuff your alpaca. Little ones will love the completed project.

This is a simple craft kit for younger kids. All it takes is a bit of sewing, a bit of stuffing and a bit of sticking and you have an adorable plush animal complete with blanket, picnic goodies, bandana and backdrop. there is not much challenge here but little kids will feel a sense of accomplishment. the thread is thick and the needle is not all that sharp. Depending on the child and the parent, you may want to swap in a real sewing needle. It is a fun kit that leaves the child with a usable, adorable toy.

The kit is cute however, there's not a lot of sewing involved. If you are wanting to teach your child hand stitching, then you might want something more involved and advanced. We were able to add some sewing by sewing on the face and stitching the scarf into place. The Alpaca is cute when sewn together and looks cute displayed. It will also hold up to gentle play. My son found a regular needle and thread to be easier to use than the ones included in the kit.
