As a crafter, I sure pay attention on the most recent and popular craft trend. When I first hear about rainbow loom, I was a little interesting to buy it, but then I stopped and keep doing research on it.
The official brand is call Rainbow Loom, and the loom kit is US$16.99 plus tax at Michael’s, refill bands are US$3.99 per pack with 600 bands and 24 c-clips.
Everything so expensive, and you cannot use coupon to purchase anything for Rainbow loom at Michael’s. So I was waiting and waiting. I told myself don’t get into this trend. Unfortunately, the rainbow loom craft showed up at the girl scouts troop round up, my 8 years old daughter and I made a bracelet there.
At that time, I still told myself don’t buy anything……until one day, my daughter wearing a bracelet to home after school. Her best friend gave her a rainbow loom bracelet. The next day, she got another bracelet again. OMG! The trend finally hit my 3rd grader.
I searched Amazon.com, ebay, Joann.com, hobby lobby, Walmart, Target, ToysRus.com, and found an off brand starter kit call Cra-z-loom at Toysrus.com, it’s is US$14.99 before taxed, and accept coupon, I have a $3 off coupon, so it’s only US$11.99 after coupon.
I love the color of the loom maker and hook, they are pink! Yes, I personally don’t really into the light blue color of the Rainbow Loom loom maker.
So I went to the ToysRus store and purchased the Cra-z-loom starter kit.
