I have loads, this is just an overview of some of them.  I will be putting them on that well known auction site a few at a time, but if you spot anything you fancy, I can show more pics - and make me an offer!

No wonder I couldn't find any when I wanted one...
You had them all  :laughing:
They are so beautiful but unfortunately I just don't have the room for anything like that anymore  :(

As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

Gosh they are all lovely!

I have a hankering for the beige Singer in the top picture - it is the one I had as a child and have been sort-of looking for one. Does it still have it's box by any chance?  :)

Oh wow what a fabulous collection.  We used to have loads of these dotted around the shop where I worked.  Always a talking point. 
Alas I have no room for them.

Ah, you can tell I can't remember it properly, and explains why I haven't found one LOL  :) I see it does still have it's needle.
So, I would be interested to know if it has it's box, and what you are asking for it. Please feel free to PM me or pop it in here, I don't mind which.
Best wishes

@LeilaMay I'm not sure about the box, I'll have look in a while - I'm in the hot tub, seems a shame to waste the lovely sunshine!

How big is it? Does it actually sew? How heavy is it?

They are adorable. It reminds me of the toy sewing machine I had as a child. I don't recall what model mine was except it was red and did a chain stitch. :)

Some of them are very light, just pressed metal kind of thing, but this might be more substantial mightn't it? And usually they are chain stitch mchines, just with a top thread. Fun aren't they? :)

@Iminei It is a toy, it's quite light, measures 9" along the top of the bed including the flap, and 8" tall. 

Before you get too excited, I have to tell you they are quite rare and sell for quite a bit.  I'm just researching prices...
