You may have heard of a little something called Loom Bands. Well, I have had enough of them. I find them all over my damn house. Under the sofa, behind the bin, in beds and scattered all over the floor. So when I was approached to review these Interplay MyStyle Super Loop Bands, I was a bit hesitant. But my six-year old daughter, Moozles, loves making jewelry so I thought we’d give it a go.
The first thing I noticed was that the box was much bigger than it needed to me. You could have fit three times the amount of loop bands as were in the box. And as each kit is priced at £9.99, I think there should have been more bands. But to be fair, the bands do look to be of a much better quality than the average loom band.
There was a clear instruction booklet which showed how to make the bracelets. Moozles loved these loop bands. They are bigger and thicker than regular loom bands. She made the bracelets with her fingers, and without using a loom. The colours were vibrant. The s-clips were sturdy and silver.
Although this product is aimed towards children eight and over, Moozles had no problems using the product by herself. She made three bracelets in about 40 minutes. One for herself, one for a school friend and a bigger/adult-sized for one of her godmothers (the latter used up twice the amount of loop bands). When she took the two small bracelets to school, the other girls went crazy for them. They were charmed by the thick bands and the silver s-clips. My daughter gave both of her bracelets away and several of her friends have asked for these super loop bands for upcoming birthdays. I guess I better get shopping.
