Loom Band Mania

Who’d have thought the common old rubber band would become a worldwide craze among children and a celebrity fashion accessory! My house is overrun with the brightly coloured bands… I’m finding them down the sofa, in the beds and I can’t tell you how many stray bands I’ve hoovered up (so has Betsy the dog ..who has a particular penchant for the neon green ones!) In an age when social media forms such a big part of advertising for companies, I like the fact this craze/craft/toy has really come about via school playground word of mouth … A bit like marbles and the yo yo did. The bands also are very cheap and that’s another part of their appeal. So I’m saying long live the loom band!
