Loop N LoomMay 08, 2010
Bought for my grandduaghter and she loves it - hardly put it down - I had bought an extra pkg of the loops so she wouldn't run out. Making great designs & colors. BUT the draw back - you cannot use. Did not realize this until it melted onto an oven shelf. And I mean really melted - must be plastic. Wish someone would offer cotton loops so the item would be useable. Be careful - they MELT!!

Gift for our granddaughterJun 07, 2008

I purchased this for our 6 year old granddaughter. She immediately tore open the box and began making potholders. After explaining the instructions to her, she started making potholders like she had been doing this for a lifetime. She certainly has enjoyed this and is almost ready to order more loops. A fine gift..

Great Item for 7 Year OldDec 29, 2008
I got this for my 7 year old daughter as a Christmas present. She absolutely loves it and started making potholders for her family. She was able to weave the looms herself and with a little help, take the potholder of the loom. The loom is metal and looks like it will last over time.
What a great present for those that are crafty.

My son loves this kit!Jan 05, 2010
I purchased this for my 4 1/2 year old son, because I remember how I enjoyed making potholders when I was a child. I was worried that he might be a bit young, but he got the hang of it pretty quickly. When he finished the first potholder, he rushed next door to proudly present the potholder as a gift to our elderly neighbor. He LOVES to make potholders- this is a real confidence builder. He used all the loops in less than two weeks, we have already gotten 3 replacement bags. This kit is a MUST for every family!
Here's a tip for when your child starts their first potholder- have them choose two colors that they alternate-for example, red green red green etc.- that way it's easy to tell them that they should weave over all the green loops and under all the red loops.

Classic toyDec 27, 2009
I remember making potholders with my Mother's loom when I was little. I like the fact that the loom is metal, I wish that the hook was also metal, but that is easily replaced. I was disappointed that the potholder cannot be used, I am buying some cotton loops so that my daughter can make real potholders.
