Rainbow Loom Night at Miller Park

Hundreds of youngsters and their families came out to Miller Park tonight to take part in a special event pertaining to the 2014 Toy of the Year, the Rainbow Loom.

In case you’re not aware, Rainbow Looms are plastic toy looms used to weave colorful rubber bands into bracelets and charms. Rainbow Looms have become quite the phenomenon among children, roughly ages 8-14.

It’s a popular pastime in summer camps and the like and children make and swap their rubber-band bracelets much the same way I did with “friendship bracelets” as a kid.

The Rainbow Loom has become somewhat of a pop culture icon, as Jimmy Kimmel featured a #SuitOfTheLoom on his show back in February:

The Rainbow Loom was invented in 2011 by Cheong Choon Ng of Novi, Michigan and we were pleased to have him here at the ballpark tonight to  highlight the evolution of the loom, unveil a new finger loom, and sign autographs.

Rainbow Loom staff and Learning Express Toys were also onsite to teach new bracelet designs.

Plus, all children were able to create their own Monster Tail Rainbow Loom with Brewers-color rubber bands and the first 500 children received a special Hank charm.
