When they arrived I was surprised at how many were in the pack, yes I knew we were expecting 5400 loom bands but I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of colours we received. And at £14.90 or £1.20 per individual packet including delivery they were also great value. We decided to send some bands to Joe’s best friend Fin so he could work with us and make some bands. I also used half the bands to make a loom to the moon loom band for the wonderful Skye and Jesse at Blue Sky thinking.
We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to try out Rainbow Braids from the lovely people at Paper and Twine. Joe is a mad loomer, along with, it seems, all of his friends at School. So I thought this would be a great rainy day project for us to work on together.
The loom bands and loom arrived 24 hours after my initial contact from Rainbow Braid’s Amazon Shop, this was wonderful, and I must say a huge relief. I had made the mistake of telling Joe the loom bands were on their way. So speedy delivery was a huge plus.
The colours were nice and vibrant and really appealed to the boys, in fact Joe and I spent quite some time negotiating over our favourite colours. The bands were also supper stretchy and trust me when you are spending 1 hour per night trying to contribute to the worlds longest loom band this makes a difference as they don’t dig in and strangle your fingers as much.
Joe and I also learned a new skill, we had never made a dragon scale band before. After watching an online tutorial we both managed a completed dragon scale. So now I can hold my own with the kids in the looming department.
Overall my opinion of the Rainbow Braid’s are; great value with speedy delivery, lovely vibrant colours, good quality loom, and super stretchy which makes them easy to work with.
Thank you Rainbow Braid we have thoroughly enjoyed working with your product, it was a great activity for a bit of calm time in the holidays, great for manual dexterity and I learned a new skill that has really impressed my kids.
Although the Bands and Loom were provided free of charge by Rainbow Braid. These are the honest opinions of Joe, Finlay and Myself.
