Take It From Me: My Friendship Bracelet Maker (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

My Friendship Bracelet Maker (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

"It’s simple yet brilliant. While babysitting his granddaughters, they asked David to make friendship bracelets with them.  This is a trend that’s had a recent surge in popularity as moms teach their kids this age old tradition with a bit of nostalgia.  Friendship Bracelets are seen all over TV, and Tweens everywhere are making them.  The process of making them involves securing a knot (online instructions will tell you to pin to your pants or hold with a nail in the wall!) and keeping the strings in order while knotting the threads.  After one experience with the grandkids, David decided their must be a better way!" 
"My Friendship Bracelet Maker’s design innovation loom lets you create friendship bracelets quickly and easily! Includes 56 precut threads in 14 different colors, and slide-out tray with inside storage keeps strings organized."
When I was little I loved making friendship bracelets and would pin them to my pants while crafting my bracelets! It was never the ideal situation, so when I found out about My Friendship Bracelet Maker I knew this would be the perfect solution to making bracelets faster and easier, and would be a lot of fun for my girls!
The kit comes with a loom which holds your threads in place, threads in every color imaginable, and a neat, convenient tray that slides out from underneath the loom that stores all your supplies.
To start, I chose four colors, light purple, dark purple, pink and white. You can choose up to 5 threads, depending on how wide you want your bracelet.
You align each piece of thread together then you fold them in half and tie a knot 1/2 inch from the end. You then clip the knot underneath the butterfly clip and string the threads through the slots. What is neat about the butterfly clip is that it is interchangeable. It twists and pops off, so you can switch it with a new clip. This really adds an extra fun factor to the loom!
Using the My Friendship Bracelet Maker was very easy to use and was much better than pinning it to my pants. The strings stayed firmly in place which gave the overall bracelet a tight, symmetrical look. Without the loom, I remember my bracelets getting a little lopsided. Since it has been a while since making friendship bracelets, I decided to start with a beginner pattern... Stripes! Check out my creation below! 
 My Friendship Bracelet Maker has lots of fun patterns to choose from, from Beginner to Advanced, your kids will never get bored.
Here are a few fun patterns from each category! Go to their friendship bracelet patterns page for more designs.
 Intermediate Patterns: Cancer Cause Ribbon Design, Candy Corn, Paw Print,
Advanced Patterns: Musical Note, Be My Valentine,
My Friendship Bracelet Maker is great to bring with you everywhere and actually won Dr Toys "Best Vacation Products" in 2010! Check out other awards MyFBM has won below.

  1. Very nice but this looks a bit complicated for my niece. She's just three but likes handling crafts. Maybe when she's older.
