Rainbow Loom Beginner Tips

Even though there are many existing crafts to choose from, sometimes you will come across a craft variant that becomes popular with young and old. One such a craft is the rainbow loom craft, which allows you to create so-called loom bracelets and other colourful accessories with the help of coloured rubber bands. If you want to get started with rainbow looms and want to make sure you have some top tips at your disposal, be sure to check out the expert tips below.

Should I Purchase Multiple Boards And Loom Hooks For My Projects?

Projects can require different boards and hooks, so most crafters will obtain a combination of different hooks and boards to ensure they have the right tools for the job. Fortunately, most hooks and boards for loom bands are extremely affordable.

With boards and hooks, we must mention that they can be made from different materials. Evidently, the material they are made from can have an influence on the price. For example, plastic is one of the most affordable options, but is less durable overall. To avoid breaking your tools, you can choose a metal option instead, although this may be a little more expensive than the plastic variant.

Cannot find a hook in our rainbow loom section? No worries, as you can easily find the hooks you need in the knitting hook category of our catalogue. Evidently, the hooks used for rainbow looms and knitting are inherently the same.

Do I Need Scissors For Rainbow Looms?

Even though rainbow looms are quite straightforward to work with, a mistake can always happen. Therefore, you can always use a nice pair of scissors to open up your loom bands if it is required.

The scissors used to open loom bands are not just general-purpose scissors. While you could use a pair of common household scissors, you will quickly notice that scissors of this size make it incredibly difficult to open a single loom band with precision. Therefore, choose a small pair of scissors that enables you to cut bands with more precision.

Can I Use Charms On Loom Bands?

Most loom band designs you encounter will not contain any charms or other cool things, as the crafter usually focusses on an advanced technique for their loom band bracelets or other accessories. However, this does not mean you cannot use them at all. On the contrary, a lot of crafters incorporate charms and other decorations with their loom bands, this can go from knitted options to metal and even a nice selection of googly eyes.

Can I Make An Extension For A Bracelet That Is Too Small?

Once you close of a loom band bracelet, you always have the option to adjust it. For example, if you have made a loom band bracelet for a family member or a friend and it turns out to be too small, you can always add an extension to make it fit.

Extensions are usually made according to a pattern. With this, it is important to pay attention to the pattern type, as the extension must match the bracelet in question. Alternatively, you can also remove the closing band with some small scissors and add more loom bands as required.

How To Organise My Loom Bands Before A Project?

If you do a lot of loom band projects, it is very easy for your loom bands to get mixed up. This could be a problem for future projects, especially when you consider that loom bands come in different sizes as well as different colours. Therefore, we recommend organising your loom bands before every project.

There are some dedicated storage containers for loom bands available at Spotlight, which will make it easier to organise your loom bands according to size and/or colour. The storage cases for loom bands are affordable too, so you do not have to break the bank for these storage solutions.

Rainbow Loom

"Loom band" redirects here. For the English rock band, see Loom (band).

Rainbow Loom is a plastic tool used to weave colorful rubber and plastic bands (called loom bands) into decorative items such as bracelets and charms. It was invented in 2010 by Cheong Choon Ng in Novi, Michigan.[1]

Description[edit]

The Rainbow Loom is a plastic pegboard measuring 2 inches (51 mm) by 8 inches (200 mm).[2] It has push pin-type pegs over which small, colored rubber bands are looped and pulled by a rainbow loom crochet hook. The resulting looped knots, known as Brunnian links, can be assembled on the loom into bracelets and other shapes.[3] The Rainbow Loom kit includes the loom (the pegboard), a rainbow loom hook, 25 special C-shaped clips to connect both ends of the bracelet,[3] and 600+ small rubber bands in assorted colors.

History[edit]

A fishtail bracelet made from loom bands

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.[1][4] He was employed as a crash-test engineer for Nissan Motor Company in 2010. He conceived the idea of a toy loom for rubber-band crafting after seeing his young daughters make rubber-band bracelets. He tried to show them how they could link the rubber bands together but was unsuccessful, so he stuck a scrap board with multiple rows of pegs on which the bands could be linked more easily.[5]

The bracelets became popular with the neighborhood children, and his daughter suggested that he sell them. He spent six months developing the loom kit and designed 28 different versions.[5] His prototype, which he called Twistz Bandz,[6] used a wooden board, pegs, and dental hooks.[3] He 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.[7] Ng decided to rename his product after discovering that an elastic hair band on the market was named Twist Band, and his brother and niece came up with the name Rainbow Loom.[4]

Efforts to sell the loom online and in toy stores, however, were unsuccessful because customers did not understand how to use the product.[1][7] Ng started a website and filmed instructional videos featuring his daughters and niece.[7] In summer 2012, Ng received his first store orders from franchises of Learning Express Toys, a specialty crafts chain, and sales picked up.[1] In June 2013 arts and crafts retail chain Michaels test-marketed the product in 32 stores; by August the chain was carrying Rainbow Loom in its 1,100 U.S. locations.[7] Rainbow Loom is also sold at Mastermind Toys in Canada and specialty stores.[4] As of August 2013, 600 retailers were selling Rainbow Loom at a retail price of $15 to $17.[1] The kits are manufactured in China, and Ng supervises distribution out of a 7,500 square feet (700 m2) warehouse near his home.[1]

In 2013, Ng worked with The Beadery and Toner Plastics to produce the Wonder Loom, a redesigned version of the Rainbow Loom that is made in the United States. The Wonder Loom is sold by Wal-Mart.[8] In April 2014, Ng released a travel-sized version of the Rainbow Loom called the 'Monster Tail,' which allows simple bracelets to be made on only 8 pegs, arranged in a rectangle.[9][10]

In mid-May 2015, Rainbow Loom released two new products:

The Alpha Loom, another travel-sized loom that can be used to make vibrantly colored name bracelets with special types of new bands, which are twice as thick but half the size of regular bands. It has seven pegs on either side, and it comes with a special hook that has seven hooks on so users can hook over seven bands at once, instead of one. It also comes with an instruction manual with pixelated grids for users to photocopy, cut out, measure around the wrist, and design the patterns themselves, with pictures and letters to spell words.

The Hair Loom Studio, also released in May 2015, is used to make designs on the Rainbow Loom, Finger Loom, or Monster Tail, which can then be transferred onto the user's hair by pushing the design off a "guide tube" onto a long strand of hair. The bands for this are made of silicone and can be removed without pulling at the hair. There are two versions of the Hair Loom Studio, a large "double" and a small "single" loom.

Reception[edit]

Targeted at children aged 8 to 14,[11] Rainbow Loom became a popular pastime in summer camps and summer clubs in 2013, according to The New York Times and Today.[1][6] Grade school-age children make and swap their rubber-band bracelets in the same way as friendship bracelets, and children have posted thousands of their own instructional videos online.[1][2][6] As of October 2013, Rainbow Loom's YouTube channel featured 66 how-to videos and had received nearly 4 million views.[2] In November 2013 third-graders at St. John the Worker school in Orefield, Pennsylvania participated in a "Rainbow Loom-a-thon", weaving rubber-band bracelets for cancer patients.[12]

Rainbow Loom was named one of the three most popular toys of 2013 by Cyber Monday Awards[13] and was the most-searched toy on Google that same year.[14] It was described in a 2014 BBC News article as "one of the most popular toys in the world".[15]

Among the celebrities seen wearing Rainbow Loom bracelets given to them by fans are Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, David Beckham, Harry Styles, Miley Cyrus, and Pope Francis.[16]

In schools[edit]

In October 2013 two New York City schools banned Rainbow Loom bracelets, stating they were distracting students in the classroom and breeding animosity in the playground.[17][18] Two Orlando, Florida schools have also enforced strict rules on wearing and trading Rainbow Loom bracelets.[19]

Imitations[edit]

Choon Ng applied to the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2010 for a patent on Rainbow Loom. He then received US Patent No. 8,485,565 for "Brunnian link making device and kit" on July 16, 2013.[20] Ng received a second US Patent, No. 8,684,420 on April 1, 2014.[21]

In August 2013 Ng filed suit against Zenacon LLC, makers of FunLoom; LaRose Industries LLC, makers of Cra-Z-Loom; and Toys "R" Us, distributors of Cra-Z-Loom, alleging that the rival products copied the design of the C-shaped fasteners used in rubber-band jewelry-making on the Rainbow Loom. LaRose Industries immediately lodged a countersuit against Ng's company, Choon's Design LLC.[3] In August 2014, LaRose challenged Choon's patent and filed the first-ever post-grant review proceeding brought under the America Invents Act. The review ended in January 2015 after a settlement.[22]

In some of the knock-off versions, high levels of the carcinogenic substance Phthalate have been found, in some cases well above the allowed limit in children's toys in Europe. British investigators found Phthalate levels over 400 times the legal limit, and several toy stores have removed these products.[23]

The Norwegian Environment Agency also found higher than legal levels of DEHP, and several products have been banned from the market. However, it has been confirmed that it was only some non-Rainbow Loom-brand charms, and not bands.[24][25]

Finding Cheap Loom Bands For Rainbow Loom Kits

cheap loom bands

Loom bands are all the rage right now. I know my daughter caught the loom band bug, and even my son can’t seem to get enough of them. Although he poo-poos the pink and purple bands, he still wants one for his birthday. They’ll sit forever and churn out bracelets, necklaces, and all sorts of other accessories with her loom. I love the looms and loom bands because it gets rid of the boredom, gives them the chance to create something, and gets them away from all of those screens.

The one downfall of these looms, I’ve found though, is that they seem to rip through the bands like mad, especially when they find a new design and churn out tons of bracelets. I’ve had to get a little creative in finding cheap loom bands to keep them in business.

Here are a few places I’ve had luck finding cheap loom bands.

Craft Stores

Sometimes craft stores will have sales where you can snag some cheap loom bands. You can also usually find coupons for up to 50% off items in crafts stores. For instance, you can usually find Michaels’ coupons for 40% off one regular priced item and an extra 25% off sale items.

Discount and Dollar Stores

You can sometimes find cheap loom bands at your local discount and dollar stores. Be sure to check stores like Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, and Five Below. You can usually find smaller packs at these stores. However, do a little math to make sure you really are getting a good deal, as sometimes smaller packs of cheap loom bands cost more per band than larger packs.

Online

I’ve found that searching online is usually the best way to find cheap loom bands. Check websites like 1SaleADay.com and Groupon, which sometimes have large packs of loom bands and loom band kits for a huge discount. Another great place to find cheap loom bands is Amazon. You can often find very large packs of loom bands for dirt cheap and get free shipping to boot.

Additional Tips to Find Cheap Loom Bands

Finding cheap loom bands and good deals on loom bands isn’t always about looking at the lowest price. Sometimes you might find cheap loom bands for a dollar, but if you only get 100 loom bands in that pack, you aren’t getting a very good deal.

When trying to find cheap loom bands, look at the price per band instead. Divide the price of a pack of loom bands by the number of loom bands in the pack. For example,if you buy a pack of 1,800 loom bands that costs $6, you’ll pay roughly $.003 per band, which is a decent deal.

Also, take into account any extras you might get when you buy a pack of cheap loom bands. Some sellers package loom bands with extras like charms, extra hooks, looms, or even large boxes to organize your loom bands. Deduct the average price of any extras before calculating the cost per loom band.
