Loombands, And What the Heck Are They?

So, back in SA I saw a bunch of ads on TV for these Loombands. I stupidly presumed that they were just one of those weird children’s toy crazes that die out. It turns out that here it is weirder to not have a bracelet made of these rubber bands aroudn your wrist. In fact, thanks to the metro I read on the tube the other day, even Kate Middleton is wearing them. Yes, I do mean Kate, as in Duchess of Cambridge Kate.

One of the newspapers my grandparents buy advertised a free pack of Loombands for every reader, if you presented a coupon at Hobbycraft. Since we were going to Hobbycraft anyway, see here, I thought I might as well grab a pack. After a few minutes when we got home I’d managed to make this (these are all the colours in the pack I got):

It does look pretty cool, but I still kind of don’t really get the whole point, or why it’s such a craze. I guess it’s sort of like Scoubidous (Wikipedia definition) when I was in Grade Five. But they didn’t have the Royal Family’s seal of approval.
