Original not fake, but plastic hook not metal
on 22 July 2014
Having read some of the comments on here I wasn't too sure if a real or copy was going to arrive. Pleased to say it's the original including the secret code which allows you to register it on the Official Rainbow Loom site. Also came with a pack of 600 original bands . The reason I have only given it 4 stars is I I have only 1 complaint. It comes with the plastic tipped hook instead of metal one, thankfully I have a metal one so no fear of it snapping as I do complicated items and the multiple bands can get very difficult to lift over. I can only assume this is older stock as the newer ones including the official long loom now come with the metal hook after warnings were sent out about the plastic one snapping and having very sharp points left. You can upgrade with this but find that approx £7.99 is a bit expensive and I tend to also use a normal 2.5 ml crochet hook which is handy when making animals as you can hold more on the crochet hook then original and I got a pack of 8 different sizes for £3.99 and that was on prime. Other than that it's a good buy, great for traveling as easy to pack in a bag with a variety of bands and clips and does come with instructions for one bracelet and a blue extra bit on the end so there should be no excuse for anyone using their fingers and cutting off circulation which has been reported.if you want to make smaller charms it's excellent for doing so as you can hold it in your hands, and I have found that using it in conjunction with the full pegged loom I have managed far better creations than just bracelets.
