Made in the USA.We developed the first of our Friendly Loom Products in the 1980's in response to growing demand from educators and parents for 'hands on' creative activities for children and teenagers. Our products are designed to provide fun, challenging, educational experiences while developing concentration, motor control and a better understanding of spatial relationships and patterning. We believe that it is essential to help children slow things down and experience their creative ability by introducing the the joys of working with their hands.As educators and parents, one of our most important challenges is to encourage the development of self-confidence. For a child to be able to say "I made this", the pride in achievement is not only felt in that child's mind and heart, it is represented in a tangible form.We hope that you will find our products useful tools for helping children discover the excitement of the creativity that is within them.
