Introduce children to the joys of weaving with this sturdy wooden peg loom, made just for beginners. Easy-to-read instructions with big diagrams make learning a snap. Weavers begin by looping heavy cotton string between the loom's slanted nylon pegs, forming the "warp" of their design. Then, using the long, plastic needle and brightly colored yarn provided, they weave the "weft"--the filling that goes over and under the string--creating designs and holding the piece together. In addition to a sense of accomplishment, children get the chance to practice math and fine-motor skills. They can use this 7.5-by-10-inch loom to create wall hangings, doll blankets, coasters, bookmarks, and more. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio's Gold Seal Award.--Joan DeClaire

Comments / reviews:
I bought this loom for a 9 year old and it is great...except for the quality of the yarn that is included. Although it is very nice and colorful-LOOKING, it frays and pulls apart easily. So we had to ditch all of it and get more yarn. Otherwise it is easy to use and very "kid friendly". I guess I would give the loom itself a "5" star rating. They should spring for some decent yarn. It is cheap.

Really fun

We gave this as a gift. It looked very nice.

I love the weaving board and build blocks that when put together make lovely Rugs, hangings, placements and wall hangings.
Everyone likes the many things I make with it.

she loves it and has been weaving everyday

My sister bought this loom for my 5-year old. He loves it and has no trouble weaving in and out--but he is not quite careful enough to avoid "bunching" of the piece he's creating. To make it look decent, he needs a fair amount of supervision--though he also doesn't seem to care about the bunching, so all in all, it's a hit.

He has not yet finished anything because he tends to take out rows of weaving too. I'm not quite sure why. Again, this also isn't a problem for him, given that he doesn't seem to care about producing a finished piece.

In short, the "suggested age" of 8 is probably right if what you're looking for is a kit with which a child can create a beautiful piece of weaving. My 5-year old is having fun with it though.

Living in a remote Alaskan town, our grand daughter has made good use of her gift.
Now I send up my yarn left overs from my knitting and crochet and she does the creating.

Perfect way to teach kids an easy craft

Nice small loom. Impressed with quality.

my daughter loves this
