Rainbow Loom is a kit used to weave colourful bracelets and necklaces. It features colourful rubber bands and a plastic pegboard for assembling rubber bands into an assortment of items. Do you know that Rainbow Loom is invented by a Malaysian who is now residing in Michigan? You can read more here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Loom. Lately it has become very popular over here and missy received a box of Rainbow Loom from our friend in Bangkok.
I tried to make a bracelet but just don’t have the patience. I am also pretty bad with this kind of crafty stuff. I still prefer paper craft. So one weekend, my sister came for a visit and she helped missy make a colourful bracelet.
I guess I have to leave it to my sisters to make more bracelets and charms with missy.
Just today, I found a different version called Loom Band at the market in the neighbourhood. This one cost RM10 only but it doesn’t have the pegboard. Actually there are different versions available now.
I remember using different colour rubber bands to make our own skipping rope when I was a kid. Brings back fun memories. I guess kids these days aren’t into such things anymore.
