Keep loom bracelets organized

Is your grandchild a loom bracelet fanatic? As fun as these bracelets can be to create and trade, the mess they make can leave you with a huge headache. Now there’s a solution ~ and it was created by a 5-year-old.

When young Jake Strulson wanted to bring some of his new loom bracelet creations over to a friend’s house, he stacked them on a paper towel roll and headed out the door. His mom then realized that a product like this was exactly what every loom-crazed household had been missing, and The Original Loom Boom was born. The Original Loom Boom features bright-colored tubes that can hold up to 40 bracelets. The tube is detachable from the base so “loomers” can transport and share, as well as have easy access to bracelets at the bottom. The base also contains extra storage for loom bands, charms, clips and other spare parts.
