Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: ALEX BRANDS
Price: $19.95

The Happy Little Loom is a well priced portable loom craft kit designed to create a variety of accessories from belts and bracelets, to headbands, scarves, purses and necklaces. The kit includes a loom, 15 rods, a weaving tool, threaded, brightly colored yarn, a plastic needle, thread, beads, and instructions. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and there are a number of instructional videos on the company's website. And much to our testers' delight, the tools clip in the back of the loom for easy storage.

The small portable loom is sized for beginners with small hands. A good amount of manual dexterity is required, so younger users may need a bit more assistance and guidance to get the hang of weaving with the loom. But once mastered, there's lots of fun and learning.

Our testers were delighted that the kit teaches a skill that produces something useful, while encouraging the flair of the maker.
