Examine the car's engine or accessory that you want to repair for the item number. The key to getting the part you need lies in the way you order. Try to determine the complete part number of the part if possible. The first three or four digit number identifies the assembled product. The number that comes after the dash describes the exact part that you will be looking for. The assembly drawings shown in the service station sheets reproduced in the Repair Manuals show the part and approximately how it is assembled to the product. The part numbers are usually found under the drawing of the piece and a word description is also located there to help you when ordering. Going through this process will help you understand how to proceed with the repair in many cases. Then look up the part number on our parts list for the price of the part. You won't always find exactly what you seek. Some items are simply not available.

I purchased my toy sewing machines from Ebay (see link below). I bought a pair that were being sold together, which was really useful because I was able to pull together enough parts between the two of them to create one fully functioning machine. Most sellers only list one at a time, however.
When searching for toy sewing machines on Ebay or anywhere else, you'll find a lot of sellers who do not know what they have. Some will be honest and tell you that they don't know if any parts are missing or whether the machine works. Others will state that the machine is complete and in working condition when clearly it is not.
You can do a decent job of evaluating the machine from the seller's pictures and by asking questions. The most common missing parts are the presser foot, needle set screw, tension spring/adjustable washer, and hand crank. On vintage Singer toy sewing machines, the spool pin is often missing as well. On Betsy Ross sewing machines, the spool pin is attached to the tension assembly, so it won't be missing unless the entire tension assembly has been removed from the machine. However, the tension spring and adjustable washer are often missing from the tension assembly on Betsy Ross machines. Some of these parts can be replaced, and others are more difficult to find.
Once you've determined that no parts are obviously missing (or that you're happy enough to replace the parts that are missing), see if the seller will tell you whether the needle goes up and down when you turn the hand wheel and whether the feed dogs shift back and forth with each turn as well. On one of my machines, the needle moves up and down, but the feed dogs are not working, so it's important to make sure that both of these work.
Ebay seller stereoscope-singer20 stocks some parts for vintage Singer 20 toy sewing machines, which may or may not work for other vintage toy sewing machines. She sells tension spring assemblies, needle set screws, spool pins, hand crank knobs, and seam guides. I suspect that you could use the needle set screws and hand crank knobs interchangeably with most toy sewing machines, though I don't know for sure.
Typical examples of a trivial restoration would be taking the best parts from two or more sets in order to create one complete set in the best possible condition, using two partial sets to build one complete one, and simple cleaning of parts with a damp rag.
The most common reasons for a simple restoration are to remove pencil and ink marks from wood or paint, fix a broken piece, or replace a particularly worn component with one that is in better condition.
As with trivial restorations, you do not need to disclose this sort of restoration work so long as you are only using original BRIO parts, either from a repair kit or salvaged from another original BRIO toy.
Should you do major restoration work? Some collectors prefer that classic or antique toys remain in their original condition even if heavily worn, but some buyers really appreciate the almost-new look of one that has been properly restored. So before you go grab your wood putty and paint supplies, consider what impact your actions might have on its value. If you are restoring a BRIO piece just for your own collection, then of course you have little to lose save for the risks of damage to the piece itself. But if your goal is to try and increase its resale value on the used market, keep in mind that your restoration efforts may have the opposite effect of what you are trying to achieve, even before you figure in the cost of your supplies.
Also keep in mind that using modern chemicals (solvents, paints, etc.) to restore a toy may actually cause long term damage to other parts of it. So major restoration work is not just risky from a financial perspective, it is potentially risky for the toy. Even experts working in museums occasionally make decisions that turn out to be wrong causing damage that is not noticed for several years. 2b1af7f3a8
