Rainbow Loom Craze

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.

  1. I have totally no patience and time for Loom too ha! But Cass loves it and is so patient! She can spend a few hours just on it and make a bunch of bracelets for her friends :)
