Ever wondered just how much better the original Rainbow loom products really are?
What I’ve recently discovered with the original Rainbow loom products.

What was also heart breaking for me with the generic bands was the quick deterioration, there is nothing worse than spending hours on an advanced design only to see it start snapping a few weeks later. With the Rainbow loom original bands, this does not happen at all, I have personally left a bracelet in the sun for over a week and it is still perfect.
I suppose it all makes sense now why some manufacturers used phthalates in their bands to make the bands last longer but causing a big cancer scare.
My personal opinion on the whole Loom band crafting phenomenon
A crafting toy that’s played with long after the craft, has captivated hundreds of thousands of children and adults around the world, why?
Firstly parents buy their children craft toys because it encourages their childs creativity, gross, visual and fine motor skills, emotional regulation and attention span. When Rainbow loom entered the market children were begging for it because of the bracelet trend. Rainbow Loom winning many awards speaks volumes for itself.
Unfortunately due to the popularity thousands of fakes entered the market and in my personal opinion there were many cheap bands and kits that killed the appreciation of the product. I for one was put off after buying my 5 year old a cheap kit from a local store. The bands were sticky and twisty and if they didn’t break, the end result looked nothing like the video tutorial, after a week the board broke so easily when trying to adjust it – we threw everything away and I had no interest to buy again. It makes me wonder how many other South African moms and dads feel the same way I did, totally robbed of the benefits involved with this craft toy due to buying cheap fakes.
I personally will not work with any other bands besides the original Rainbow loom product. I am thoroughly enjoying the original brand.
