Yes, I know I will be 30 in a little more than a month, but I’ve joined the pre-teen/teen craze of rubber band bracelets!!
I’ve personally tried several different loom kits from pretty expensive ones to really really cheep looms. My favorite thus far is the Rainbow Bandz Loom kit.
The Rainbow Bandz Loom kit comes with pretty much the standard equipment; 1 adjustable loom, a hook, a mini loom, and a starter pack of rubber bands. I love the adjustable loom, it makes it so much easier to make bracelets like the hexafish, flexafish, the totem pole bracelet, and more.
The bands are awesome too. They are very consistent in size, shape, and thickness. They take a little longer to stretch out, but I rarely have one break. I also love they are latex free and made from organic silicone. since I am allergic to latex.
Here is a little video I made of the French Braid Bracelet.
The only problem I found with the Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit was the hook. I’ve had two of them and broke them both. I was doing really advanced designs with it, and I probably put too much stress on it. If you plan on making anything where the bands are going to be really tight, I would suggest getting a metal hook.
If you are interested in purchasing a Rainbow Bandz Loom kit and/or bands, you can purchase them on Amazon. The loom kit is (as of 7/15/14) currently $9.99 (prime), and the refill pack of 5400 bands is only (as of 7/15/14) $19.98 (prime).
