The Big Shot and the Big Kick are the same machine; they function the same, just the colors and aesthetic design are different. I definitely recommend getting one if you can. The dies can get pricey (and addictive!) when you start, but they are so versatile you can easily make your money back. I have a scalloped circle die and I can make multiple different flowers and puffs with just it alone. I really like the Flower Layer dies because there are so many different ones out there it's fun to mix and match the petal styles and sizes.
