Singer Toy Sewing machine (1960s)

 This machine is a little outside the scope of our usual sewing machine collection as it is a toy machine and it is mostly plastic. But it is such a nice representative of the Sixties toy machines that it deserves a place here. It comes complete with a little case, a cheerful manual and a plastic foot control. Yes, it is electric! Batteries not included.
 Even though it is small it is a full sewing machine
 The manual gives charming projects for the young seamstress.
 Yes it is firmly positioned as a girl's toy. 
 I found the transparent shuttle very interesting. Mechanically it works much like the old Singer 12 machine. Very different from the usual toy machines.
