kid's toy?...

...or something else with which to play with beads??
This is a bead loom that was bought through my son's school book club. I had ideas of using it for a Christmas gift for a niece or friend of son's or something. Right. I had to take it out of the box to see what it was like - maybe it was too complicated or fiddly for a 10 year old. I mean, I HAD to check, right?

Then I had to try it out - you know, make sure it works okay, and the instructions make sense. Yeah, I'm keeping it. I'm on bracelet number 8 right now...

If you start calling in sick to work and not eating we'll have to stage an intervention!

I had an almost identical loom when I was about 12 years old and I loved it!

Made many a lovely gift with it.

You know how little ones are perfectly happy with wooden spopons, and a pot, and how small boys can entertain themselves endlessley for hours wandering around picking up stones? I like to think that 'toys' are wasted on the young.
