Might Be The Worst Product I've Ever Bought
on 19 August 2014
Bought this from Argos and it's a real rip-off - at first it looks great, it's very sturdy with high quality bands that come with it, but then you try to use it and it's ridiculously flawed. When my daughter tries to make anything on it, she gets half way through and the bands come flying off - so she has to start again. And again. And again. I really can't tell you how much time has been wasted with this dumb thing, and it's not a problem my daughter says ever appears in the youtube videos, which all use the official loom. What's more, this only makes bracelets that would fit the wrist of an 8-10 year old, any larger and you need to buy another full Cra-Z-Loom pack! I know I would have to buy two looms with any kit, but normally you can buy an extension for 3 quid, not a second pack. There's an alternative kit costing £8.55 called 'Ateam Loom Bandz Kit & Clips Collection with 4200 Bandz + 170 Clips + 5 Hooks + 1 Loom Board 11 Beautiful Colors and Great Storage Case'... Wish I'd bought that one now!
P.S. If you're tempted by the 'free' fishtail-maker, don't be - that can be made on loom or fingers with ease! It's just a waste of plastic.
