Comments / reviews:
I bought an inexpensive tapestry loom just in case I turn out to not like tapestry weaving as much as I hope I will. This one comes with lots of extra "doo-dads" and a pattern to teach you some basics of weaving. It's a great set up for the money.

The loom itself is great, but the yarn it comes with is total crap honestly. It doesn't come with enough yarn to use with the whole loom, but it wasn't a big issue for me. It's still definitely worth it for even just the loom and tools, in my opinion.

I like the loom itself a lot. The accessories it comes with, however, are extremely flimsy. I wasn't expecting super high quality at this price point, but I was expecting the shed sticks to not snap during my first project. Luckily, these are basically just paint stirrers so they're easily replaceable.

We took this on our vacation for our 9-year-old daughter to work on in the car. It kept her busy for quite a while! It's pretty large, but does fit on your child's lap. It's a good value too. I would have paid a little more if it had included a little more yarn. Maybe they could sell an accessory kit with more yarn and patterns. But overall, a good toy.

I'm actually a senior citizen and I really like this little loom. It's well-built (very sturdy) and as long as I use yarn I can see it just fine, although my eyes are not the best these days. Tiny thread and needles are a thing of the past for me.

The needle they include is great. Has a great big eye so it's easy to thread, even for me. None of my old ones are quite as good, and I wonder where I could get some more like it because I worry about losing it.

The only thing I would find fault with is that to me it needs something under it to keep my knees from going through it. I'm not sure how others mamage, but I cut the box that it came in down some and it is (of course) a perfect fit. Lifts right up and even out to get to the underside if I need to, and no more knees poking through! So my advice is "Don't throw away the box."

Overall, I think it's a very good hobby for almost anybody.

Great gift and well made.

I thought my daughter would love this- but it hasn't gotten much use... If your going to get a lap loom though this is the one.

It's the lack of skill as a weaver rather than the loom. I like the idea of it, but need more experience with this before I can say it was a good purchase for me.

Better for older children and some will need adult assistance. Well made and nice selection of yarn. Instructions pictures could be clearer.

Very well made.
