I'm a big fan of any gift for children that might inspire creativity and/or hands-on learning. It's why I would never buy any child a video game or other stupid electronic gadget. I'm also not normally a fan of Barbie but a Barbie sewing machine that's also a great deal is worth of consideration
For just $6.99 plus shipping, you can get this Barbie Lightweight/Portable Straight-Stitch Sewing Machine with AC/DC Adaptor -- that's a hefty savings off the $29.99 list price.
Hurry on this one! According to Sears the offer expires at 6 AM today. Add to your cart to see the reduced price.
