    I think these clothes folding machines are the next big thing! Having this machine in your home will save you a lot of time! I hope this product is out in stores very soon!

    • Jane

      Yes because it helps people with disabilities

  5. Derick

    Yes you have more time on your hands to spend time with your family

  6. Bailey Jackson

    I think it’s the next big thing because you may have work and need time to do your work so it would help you then again it’s kinda expensive.

  7. Ayla

    Yes, because it can be hard to fold your laundry properly, specifically towels. I’ve never been able to fold towels.
    (By the way, my name is pronounced with an ‘I’ sound. So, “I-la”)

  8. Kriston Whaley

    I think it is the next big thing because you can do the work but they can do the work for you

  9. Olivia Grant

    I think this is the next big thing because it could help people in there every day life’s if they have a busy schedule.

  10. Faith

    I don’t think the folding machine is the next big thing because it takes the responsibility out of chores that children need.

  11. Enfinniti T

    The folding machine is the next big thing because it will save parents and kids more time to do other things like after school sports and other chores they might have.

  12. Enfinniti T

    Yes, because it will save our parents time to do other things they need to do instead of folding clothes and it will save kids time from one of their chores to do some other chores they might have plus dads won’t have to worry bout their wife asking them to fold clothes because most likely they won’t fold it right but the folding machine will.

  13. Sydney Elliott

    I think this would be a huge step up in laundry businesses! Definitely yes!

  14. Samaria sutton

    Why waste your money when you could do it yourself

  15. Madalyn Swain

    I think it is not the N.B.T. because it’s not like they will stay folder in our closets anyway and it costs too much for something that is not that hard to do!☺

  16. Yasmin Lima

    All my classroom say yes but I disagree . I think that is just making people lazy and that is a easy thing to do. I am from Long Branch Middle School.

  17. Tyler Rain

    No, kids should take responsibilities and learn how to do stuff like doing laundry. It is also a big waste of time and money because in the time it takes me to pit it on the clips i could of already had it folded my laundry by myself. Lastly some people don’t fold some of their clothes instead they put stuff like shirt on regular hangers.

  18. Ryan

    Yes I think it’s a good idea most kids wont have as many chores.

  19. Jackson C

    The Clothes folding machine is the next big thing because it will help a lot because you can do your homework while it is folding so it is a two for one.
