If you purchase from Fun Collectables they are the Official bands
on 2 July 2014
I ordered these from Fun Collectables and they are the Official Rainbow Loom ones, I've checked thoroughly.
Overall I am pleased with these but gave 4 stars simply because the description is not clear enough as they are not all opaque bands in the bag.
If you look closely at the picture you can see that the Purple, Yellow and Turquoise bands are actually jelly (translucent), not opaque, but as I ordered these before I became familiar with the different kinds of official bands you can get, I assumed this pack would be exactly the same as the one that comes with the Rainbow Loom and Monster Tail official kits. It should be described as it is on the Rainbow Loom website as mixed with jelly.
So, yes, they are official but not all of them are opaque, which is slightly annoying as now I have a shortage of opaque purple, yellow and turquoise.
If you order direct from rainbowloom.com, the bands are only $2.49 each and if you buy 4 bags + the postage from the US is quite reasonable. I have now done this as you get a better deal and a much wider variety of bands. Just make sure you don't order too much at once or you'll be charged by customs.
