It's always nice to see a toy that encourages creativity making waves in the specialty market. That's why TDmonthly wanted to learn more about the Rainbow Loom.

According to TDmonthly's panel of specialty retailers, the Rainbow Loom is a top seller. It was named a Top-10 Most-Wanted Activity Toy in a May 2013 survey, and four of 12 retailers named it their overall best-selling toy in our July 2013 survey.

The Rainbow Loom is a fun way for kids to create rubber band bracelets using BPA free, Phthlates free, Lead free, and Chromium free materials. Using different colors of rubber band, kids hook and loop the bands over the Rainbow Loom. Once the bands are removed from the loom, kids are left with a new jewelry creation.

You can learn how to use the Rainbow Loom easily, thanks to the many videos provided online. Take a look at the Rainbow Loom videos below, and then decide if this product is right for your store.
