What Exactly Is A Rainbow Loom?
When he tried doing it he found that his fingers were to big and clumsy to handle the small rubber bands. He put together a wooden board with push pins, which helped him navigate the bands a bit better. However his daughters weren't impressed.
After he messed around with the board a bit more the daughters did come around and started using it themselves. One of the daughters suggested that Choon try to manufacture and sell the product. After figuring out a way he could financially get it done, the family started selling the kits online.
After a bit of a rocky start and some help from the owner of a Learning Express Toys store, things started moving forward to the success the kit now enjoys.
So what is the Rainbow Loom? Well the loom itself is plastic pegs on a plastic bottom. The kit comes with the loom, 600 rubber bands, 2 templates, a hook, c-clips and instructions. You can make up to 24 bracelets with the kit. You can always get refill rubber bands to make more bracelets and other interesting items like barefoot sandals.
