My eldest daughter learnt sewing, and she is sooo excited to mend the simple stuff for the family. Now she knows the basics so we're willing to give her simple machine this year.
And here comes the question, which machine should I buy?

Of course, I've asked the google first, and here are a some of dozens reviews I've checked:
https://www.kidactivities.net/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/" rel="nofollow - https://www.kidactivities.net/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/
https://craftsselection.com/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/" rel="nofollow - https://craftsselection.com/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/
https://sewingland.org/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/" rel="nofollow - https://sewingland.org/best-sewing-machine-for-kids/

But you know how tricky is to find real feedback

So I'm asking you, which machine - in your opinion - would be suitable for a 6 y.o.? Need to mention, she won't be sewing alone as I'm going to guide her so she'd be safe. Now I'm eyeballing both Singers and Janome's (as I've had some good experience with them in the past). Yet still it's hard to decide. Are not these machine are way tooo... well, toy-ish? But guess I'm not ready to introduce my kiddo to the vintage one.
Thanks in advance.

Huh I think that maybe a 6 year old is a little too young to do sewing. I started to sew seriously when I was around 13 years old. At the time the only sewing machine that we had in the house was an old Singer (I honestly can't remember the model of the machine). I really lied ti and I was always fascinated regarding the way it worked, especially since my mom never let me near it. In the end I made her teach me. The first thing she taught me was http://sewingmachinebuffs.com/how-to-thread-a-singer-sewing-machine/" rel="nofollow - how to thread an old singer and it was so fun. I have been sewing ever sine I was a teenager. Half of the clothes I owned in high school were self-made. I will definitely teach my kids sewing as well.

Agree! I bought it last year for my teenage girl, she wanted to try herself in sewing. It took her very little time to get used to it and understand how it works.

I feel you should buy https://www.machinerycritic.com/sewing-machines/brother-pq1500sl-review" rel="nofollow - brother pq1500sl . It is not only for kinds clothing but also for all type of sewing work. To be honest brother sewing machines are great for family use.
