Here is a very attractive sewing kit
(valise couture) made by
Moulin Roty - France.

This little carry case holds
all of the young child's
requirements for
sewing and knitting.

Tape measure, embroidery thread, scissors,
spool knitter, crochet hook, buttons,
thimble, cottons, sewing
needles, knitting needles, and wool.

Of course, the spool knitter is the main
attraction here. Measuring just 6 cms
from top to bottom including the staples,
in the cutest mushroom shape.

This set is new, very well made, and it
will quickly become a collectible for
the future.

Rocket Knitting Nancy

This is the new (2008) Knitting Nancy
box from Rocket Toys and Games.
I find it a pity that the Knitting Nancy
itself was not changed. Aside from the
extremely pink face, this exact Knitting
Nancy has been around for about 30 years.

Below is the leaflet found in this box which
is printed on both sides.

Originally made by Spears Games which was
then taken over by Mattel, the Knitting Nancy
was not continued by Mattel. We now see it
being produced by Rocket Toys and Games of

Below is the first Knitting Nancy box
from Rocket Toys and Games.

Although a different Knitter is pictured on the
box, the actual Knitter found inside is the one
shown here on the right.
