    We are having the same problem we can't get the bobbin to catch.....

    Jamac said they no longer make them and they have no clue as to how to get the instructions and Mattel said they only let Jamac use the Barbie name and know nothing about them either. So I would suggest Buyers Beware!!!!! I am having the same problem with the bobbin not catching and I am afraid I wasted my money on this thing.

    Golly jeepers...i tried and i tried over and over again to thread the bobbin, and holy moly...i couldn't get it to work!!!! I see now that i'm not the only one.....i am no longer going to stress over this sewing machine, it was a waste of good money, and not worth a dime i tell me, how am i suppose to explain this to my sweet little girl????
