Disclosure: I received a sample to facilitate my review. This is my honest opinion. You may have a different outcome.
I used to do some kind of crafting everyday, but got out of that habit many years ago. Now that my nieces and nephews are around, I like to have fun with them, which sometimes includes crafting. Case in point, the Friendly Bands Loom Kit we received to try out. I have to warn you, this item can get addicting to use.
The kit comes with everything you need to start making rubber band bracelets and necklaces. It is easiest to sort the rubber bands first according to color (like in the picture above). I found the instructions included with the kit to be a little confusing, so I went online and watched the instructional videos, which I could stop and start as many times as I wanted. It made is so much easier and there were plenty of designs to choose from.
Placing the rubber bands can be a bit tricky, but it gets easier the more you do it. They are small, so kids have an easier time putting them on the hooks. After adding the bands in the colors and design you want, you then use the hook and 'lock-in' your design by moving the rubber bands and finally finish by taking off the loom.
The clips are numbered and it shows how much you have to use according to sizes, small, medium, large and extra large. I like that you can keep everything all together in the plastic tray for future use. The cute little charms are interchangeable also, so if you want to change it, you just push it out and put another one in its place on your finished project. I thought the rubber bands would break easily, but they don't, and the bracelets seem to hold up pretty well.
