T31885 - Loopdedoo Spinning Loom w/36 Skeins of Thread &Storage
Great but there is a learning curve
I purchased this for my daughter about a week ago. She immediately wanted to use it. However, the written instructions are horrible. She is 11 and was confused by them, but so was I. There are tutorial videos that are much more helpful, but more videos with step by step instructions are needed. That being said, the bracelets are adorable. With some patience every girl will really enjoy the creativity this toy allows. There are also Loopdedoo charms that can be added to the bracelets, though any charm will work. We even figured out how to work seed beads into some designs. My son made a really cool bracelet in UK team colors and a zipper pull. Heck, I even like playing with it. This toy is unique and worth the money.
Sooo much fun!
I never write reviews, but after trying this, I think everyone should have one. It is sooooo much fun. I have made lots of Christmas presents for the kids. It helps with your creativity because you can do almost anything. I've made bracelets, key chains, added charms and buttons. I convinced my mom to order one for my niece for Christmas, so we can have fun making jewelry together. It is easy to learn how to do it (especially if you watch the video online) and you can make a bracelet in about 10-15 minutes right from the start. As you practice, it gets easier. :)
I recently purchased this for my niece's eighth birthday. She loves to do hands-on crafts. I wanted to get her something she could do on her own without too much difficulty. QVC had the best deal on this product, when calculating all the extra skeins. I looked it up on other websites to see more reviews and they were all positive. The verdict from my niece - she loves it and is now trying to sell her bracelets to all her family and friends. My bro-in-law helped her get set up and showed her how to get started. After that, she had no difficulty making things on her own. She has only had it for a few days and has made bracelets, necklaces and key rings.I am very happy that she loves it and because you can buy the yarn anywhere, I anticipate lots of years spent playing with this. ,
Fun & Easy
Just bought this for my daughters. Youngest being 8, oldest is 11. We went on a long road trip and they spent hours making bracelets for themselves and friends. It was very easy to get the hang of and they can make some very neat, creative designs!
