4.0 out of 5 stars Panda toy 20 Feb 2010

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this kit for my nearly 9 year old daughter. It is quite fiddly but with help from me she now has a lovely new panda. It makes a good cuddly toy and the instructions are clear.

The pattern for this panda is very nice, although I would say that it doesn't look anything like the refined looking article in the picture. The head is much bigger and he is more hunched over in reality (in fact the position of the finished toy is more like a real panda, so this is a good thing). You also do not get the bit of bamboo.
The quality of the fur in this kit is poor. It is that thin, cheap fur that you usually find in fabric shops that mats easily and looks really scruffy. I called my panda Scruff for this reason. If it is being bought for a child as a sewing project, then this is fine (so long as the child is happy with it), but if you are making it as a gift, etc., then you are better off buying some more expensive, good quality fur and copying the pattern for a more professional finish.
The pattern is easy to machine stitch, although there are a couple of fiddly moments (i.e. sewing the arms and head to the body), but it should be no problem for someone who is experienced, and it only took me around 2 hours from start to finish by machine. Hand sewing it would be no problem at all, although obviously it would take longer.
All in all, a lovely product, but beware that cheap fur...

1.0 out of 5 stars Ok 9 Oct 2013
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted to make a panda toy that was something more old fashioned than the stuff out now. And I also enjoy doing crafts as I was going to customize the panda afterwards by adding a tutu and a glitter bow, so it would be an old fashioned pandas with a modern twist.

Positives:
1. The fur was reasonable enough.
2. There are eyes and nose in kit.

Negatives:
1. The instructions weren't that clear.
2. You don't get the bamboo as in the picture.
3. It doesn't turn out like the picture.
4. You don't get any needles with it.

Personal Issues with kit:
When I was making it I found it extremely difficult to do the arms.
Once I had stitched it up according to the instructions and there was a huge gap left at the front, my dad who's a retired fabrication engineer and who knows about putting things together checked over it and the instructions and he cant understand where the gap has came from.
I would have preferred it if there was some picture instructions as well.

Over all the item has left me confused, and I'm slightly disappointed by the over all result.
