Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit
Review


When Oma was a youngster, weaving pot holders for your mom was the kid crafting rage My younger friends tell me that “in” thing now days is making colorful charm bracelets to share with your best buddies.

Oma must admit that after opening her Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit, she was a tad confused. Luckily there are a plethora of videos out there which provide comprehensive instructions!


What Oma loves about this “toy” is that enables children to use their imagination in their play. It is refreshing to see an activity that occupy a child’s attention that is not electronic!  Additionally, the loom is well-constructed and easy for little hands to grip.

Oma will definitely keep the Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit in mind for the next birthday party of a niece or nephew. This loom will supply countless hours of entertainment for the young innovative mind.

 

History


Rainbow Loom was created by Cheong Choon Ng, a Malaysian immigrant of Chinese descent who came to the United States in 1991 to attend Wichita State University, where he earned a graduate degree in mechanical engineering. He was employed as a crash-test engineer for Nissan Motor Company in 2010 when he conceived the idea of a toy loom for rubber-band crafting while watching his young daughters make rubber-band jewelry.

His prototype, which he called Twistz Bandz, used a wooden board, pushpins, and dental hooks. Encouraged by his family to market the product commercially, Ng invested $10,000 and found a factory in China to manufacture the parts, which he and his wife assembled in their home in June 2011. Ng renamed his product after discovering an elastic hair band on the market named Twist Band. His brother and niece came up with the name Rainbow Loom.
