My daughter Lucy was over the moon and extremely excited that we had been chosen to review the Super Loop Bands from Interplay UK, especially when the week end beforehand we tried to buy the set ourselves and it was out of stock locally much to our disappointment. Lucy was very keen to receive this jewellery making set as it’s the latest craze amongst her school friends and cousins and seems to be very popular and in her words really, “cool and trendy!”
The set we received makes 5 bracelets (and clearly indicates a warning sign for ages 8 years + due to small parts). As soon as we opened the contents of the colourful box we inspected it closer which contained 125 colourful silicone loops (5 rainbow colours) and 5 metal ‘S’ clasps and a 12 page instruction manual. Lucy didn’t need any supervision whatsoever to make these bracelets, she took it upon herself to read the easy instruction booklet which gave step by step instructions with lots of colour pictures demonstrating how to create your own bracelets and proceeded very enthusiastically in making her very first loom bracelets, each bracelet only took around 5 minutes to complete and there are lots of different ways of creating and making the bracelets, all with your own individual styles which make them unique.
I would recommend this set, it is good value – priced at £9.99 and would be an excellent good value gift for a birthday present for friends. Lucy had lots of fun and now wants to save her pennies to buy more refills so she can carry on making the bracelets. I’m sure Lucy will go on to make more of these bracelets, it’s something she will not get bored of easily and this set will bring lots of pleasure to not only girls to make as they are so funky and suitable for boys too . I like the fact the bracelets are so simple and easy to make but also very versatile that you can take them apart and make again if you want a different design.
Suitable for: 8 years +
Available to buy from Interplay UK here.
