It all started when the creator of Rainbow Loom, Choon Ng, saw his 2 daughters make bracelet out of pony bands. He thought that he wanted his daughters to think that their dad was "cool." Though, when making bracelets out of pony bands, his hands were too big. Since Choon was an engineer, he got an idea to make them with a loom.
How Choon got Started
He got push pins and a board and place small loom bands on the pins. Then, he got a dental hook and started looping bands, turning it into a bracelet. His daughters (Theresa and Michelle) thought it was so cool! They both asked him to make more, but his hand hurt so bad. But by then, he thought that he could make it a toy. That's where the "loom" part came from in "Rainbow Loom." He first named it "Twistz Bandz" but then there was a band called "Twist Band." With the help of his brother and niece, he came up with "Rainbow Loom".
At first his toy wasn't a big hit. They thought that if they made a website and created videos, it would get more attention to the toy. The first person to help Choon is Suzanne Peterson, owner of Learning Express in Nevada. Later on it got more popular and it was selling in stores. Making it one of the most popular toys of the year.
- Rainbow Loom was voted "T. O. T. Y." (Toy of the Year).
- In 2013, it was voted the most searched thing on Google.
- When releasing the sell of the "Monster Tail", the Rainbow Loom webstore said that if your order has the Monster Tail in it, your order will be shipped on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. (passed)
The Monster Tail is currently one of the "travel size" Rainbow Looms. It is shaped like a circle/oval. When you open it, you get a manual with 2 designs. Under it, it has the Rainbow Loom hook with the new mini loom, the "Monster Tail", opaque mixed bands and larger c-clips to use for "Monster Tail" bracelets.
There are 2 hooks. The regular one and the upgrade metal one. Rainbow Loom has released a new mini loom that makes faster designs. (fishtail) The upgrade metal hook comes in 3 different colors, blue, green and pink, with the new mini loom.
