I've tried once, but I'd give up because of my hectic schedule and also I suffer headache due to an eye problem.

However, as I see it many are hooked on this kind of an artwork. I can see many loom bands in the market, but you don't know how safety it is for your children's. So as a mother and wanted to teach my kids to make one for themselves, I hover my mouse and search for a loom band that will give me satisfaction guaranteed safe.

Then trying to search for the right loom band, I discovered this:


RAINBOW LOOM was invented in 2011 by CHEONG CHOON NG of Novi, Michigan. A Malaysian immigrant of a Chinese descent. 

When he was still working at Nissan Motor company in 2010, he conceived the idea of making a toy-loom for a rubber band crafting. His first TOY LOOM was called TWISTZ BANDZ, a wooden board that uses a pushpins and dental hooks. But when he heard that there is an elastic hair band on the market that is called Twist Band, his brother and niece came up the name RAINBOW LOOM.

Rainbow Loom is a plastic pegboard measuring 2 inches(51mm)by 8 inches(200mm).  It is safe to use because its FREE from PHTHLATES, LEAD, CADMIUM, CHROMIUM, MERCURY and ARSENIC and it is approved by the US TOY SAFETY STANDARDS.


If you want to make sure that you have an Authentic Rainbow Loom products, please purchase at their website online or at their authorized retailers.
