I have mentioned before that my children love to make the rubber band bracelets so when I was chosen to review the RainbowBandz Loom Kit they were super excited. My boys have one but the girls do not and they have been begging to use the boys or for us to buy them one. So since they assumed it was for them, I guess it will be.
The kit is very nice and comes with everything needed make quite a few rainbow bandz bracelets. It includes the loom board, 600 Silicone bands, 24 clips, and tool. Plus step by step picture instructions which are very easy to follow. As an added bonus the bands are organic and latex free. This would have been perfect for my mom she was allergic to latex.
The loom is very nice and well made. It is made out of a sturdy plastic but is light weight so the children can easily bring it from one room to another. They like that idea and I do too as long as I don't have a trail of rubber bandz from one room to another.
The bands are soft and flexible so they easily work around the loom without popping. There is a large variety of colors. My daughter loved a purple, she kept saying " I like that purple, but not that one" So there is even variations of the same colors.
The tool is also made of a sturdy but workable plastic and it's has case so it can covered when not in use. That is providing my children put the cover back on!
The loom makes a few different styles of bracelets so my son was super excited when he saw that. He immediately picked out the one he wanted to make. He has made these bracelets before but not that style. He explained to me what the difference was but I couldn't tell what he said if you if you paid me.
My girls were so excited because the boy's have a loom and and they wanted one too. So I told them they could play with this one. As you can see they started without me, and they are doing it wrong! After you read the instructions (they can't read yet), it is very easy to use.
The Rainbow Bandz Loom is fun for the whole family or one child . We sat around the loom and made a few bracelets but my son used his alone for days. He had so much fun making bracelets, I think he made everybody at his school one. I know he made everybody in the family one including extended family!
This would make a great gift for any boy or girl. It's not enough to share all of my children want their own individual loom. I just don't understand that but i told them to talk to Santa.
Look at 'em go. They did a great job. My daughter likes to do these too. :)ReplyDelete
I remember doing something similar to this when I was young. I think this is great--crafting teaches a lot of skills.ReplyDelete
That is like so cool! I would get that for myself.ReplyDelete
We have bands EVERYWHERE! lol They are time consuming for the kids but are everywhere. I remember making friendship bracelets when I was younger and I had tons of threads and strings around.ReplyDelete
looks like it would be good for grown-ups, too.... :DReplyDelete
I wan to be a kid again! How fun!ReplyDelete
We bought one of these for our daughter and she loves it. However - so do I! I have to get it out and play with it while she's asleep - I'll have to start telling her that fairies are using up all of her bands!ReplyDelete
My daughters love looms and bracelets, and anything girly, crafty, and fun!ReplyDelete
These look like so much fun - I have seen a lot of little girls around with them!ReplyDelete

I used to do this but without a kit. Lots of fun, fun, fun...ReplyDelete
This looks like a great way to keep kids entertained. I loved making bracelets as a small girl and these look much more fun!ReplyDelete
