Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit Review

You've seen the Rainbow Loom commercials right? They come on all the time. Kids are having the best time ever, making a whole collection of rubber band jewelry...Well, I was sent my very own kit to try out and review a couple of weeks ago.

Product Details
  • Kit consists of a hook with base opener, loom, 24 C-clips, 600 silicone, rubber bands
  • Can make up to 28 colorful bracelets, charms, etc
  • Comes with an instruction manual
  • Non-toxic, lead and latex free
My Thoughts

At first, I thought-OMG, 600 rubber bands???? Hope they don't spill all over the house! 
Not a big deal, actually, I just store them in a reusable Ziploc baggy.

This is the plastic hook (yellow) and mini loom (blue) BEFORE I started using them

This is the loom. Although I didn't seem to see anywhere on the instruction manual, but maybe I just missed it, this can come apart. You can move the three rows as you see fit or remove one when you want to use a single row. (I got this info from YouTube when I was looking for cool things to make with the kit)

My son and I making bracelets on the loom

A bracelet I made with the mini loom, which was really easy to do.

Here is what it looks like on my arm

I also made a ring (this is part of what it looked like on the loom) 

Here are my matching bracelet and ring!

Overall, I found this kit to be pretty fun. My 6 year old son couldn't really make much but he had fun watching me make things. I made a ton of bracelets and even a couple of keychains. I'll be posting those up in my next review since I was sent a HUGE bag of rubber band refills!

This is sadly what happened after the FIRST day of using the hook and loom.
No problem!!!
I simply started using a regular metal crochet needle/hook and just attached the row back onto the blue separators. Worked fine. I still make things on it, by using my metal hook.
Perhaps the company should include a metal hook in the kit instead of the plastic one?

I love that these rubber bands are non-toxic, lead and latex free, especially since they are in contact with my skin and my son's skin when making jewelry or wearing them on a regular basis. 
The rubber bands are pretty durable, I've only busted a few in the process of making stuff. This only happened when I was trying to make some of the really advanced bracelets and charms that I saw on YouTube.
Other complaints?
I know I mentioned YouTube quite a few times, but I felt that many of the videos were way more informative than the instruction manual that came inside the box. Also, there are so many really cool ideas out there that you can make out of these tiny bands and clips!
Also, although the kit's description says C-clips, this kit comes wth S-clips, which in my mind seem to work better than C-clips as far as holding the jewelry together.

I do like this kit a lot, since I've always been very much into crafting things. I think these are great fun for parties, group events, school activities, scouting activities, or just to rid yourself of boredom. I love all of the colors available---you can create several to match your kids outfits! I say kids because I don't really see myself wearing these on a regular basis. But or kids---yes they're great! I made quite a few bracelets for my little boy and gave the floral ones (yes you can make floral ones--check back for my next post for a pic) to my niece. Both of them love them.

Lastly, be careful---not the best thing to use constantly if you have carpal tunnel. My hands/wrists got a bit sore after I made several of these bracelets and such. My own fault--though--I think I got a bit too excited and carried away making things.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
