Top Toy Review: The Rainbow Loom

Greetings, Learning Expressions Readers!

rainbowloom1

 

This week we have a brand new guest blogger – Daughtry King. Daughtry is an assistant manager at our Alpharetta store and is here today to chat about the Rainbow Loom. Enjoy!

 

 

 

Hi Readers,

If someone had told me last July that a kit containing a plastic loom, rubber bands, and a hook rainbow
would be wildly popular, I can confidently say I probably would not have believed them. But here I stand today, a proud Rainbow Loom devotee—ready and willing like any of my fellow staff members to tell everyone and anyone about the benefits of Rainbow Loom. The excitement that this fabulous, creative, and inventive craft has caused not only for our customers but also for our staff is something unique and wonderful to experience on a day-to-day basis.

When we first received the looms here at the Alpharetta store we started small, showing each child who came in how to make a basic bracelet with the loom. Soon all the staff members were itching to take one home and see who could make the most complicated design to show off the next day. Individual lessons soon turned into classes, and with that our store was filled with kids of all ages (with arms full of bracelets) anxious to learn the next new, exciting pattern!

rainbowloom3With the Rainbow Loom the fun possibilities really are endless. Kids join us for weekly classes, participate in design contests, and are even using the bracelets for school projects. Most recently, we held an in-store event for one of our customers, a sweet 6-year-old girl named Kallyn. Kallyn has Crohn’s disease, and she and her family are walking to support the Crohn’s and Colitis foundation. We held a twist-a-thon at the store where we supplied blue and orange Bandz (Kallyn’s team colors) for people to come and make bracelets for those who have sponsored and will walk with her on June 1st, 2013! Our Twist for a Cause event was a great success, and Kallyn ended up with more than enough bracelets for all of her walkers.

I love to see how kids light up when they get creative with the Rainbow Loom in our store, and I definitely can’t wait to see what new designs Learning Express customers all over the country will come up with in the months to come!
