In today's fast-paced, high-tech, super-hyped world, learning an ancient craft may be just the calming influence kids need. With Harrisville Designs' simple, sturdy, authentic hardwood lap loom, children and teens can learn basic techniques for weaving tapestries, wall hangings, bags, pillows, place mats, purses, and more. Equipped with slanted nylon pegs, this 12-by-16-inch loom comes with enough cotton warp string and wool yarn to weave one 9-by-15-inch project. You also get basic weaving tools, including a stick shuttle, a large blunt tapestry needle, and two shed sticks. In addition, a 16-page booklet provides information about the history of weaving, as well as instructions in basic technique. Winner of Learning magazine's Teachers' Choice Award, this loom is recommended for children ages 7 and older, although preteens will probably need adult help to get started. --Joan DeClaire

My 8 year old daughter and I love this loom!
A. Secklin
The students (high school) find it very relaxing and often will finish their work quickly so they can weave.
Sandie
Overall, I think it's a very good hobby for almost anybody.

I'm actually a senior citizen and I really like this little loom. It's well-built (very sturdy) and as long as I use yarn I can see it just fine, although my eyes are not the best these days. Tiny thread and needles are a thing of the past for me.

The needle they include is great. Has a great big eye so it's easy to thread, even for me. None of my old ones are quite as good, and I wonder where I could get some more like it because I worry about losing it.

The only thing I would find fault with is that to me it needs something under it to keep my knees from going through it. I'm not sure how others mamage, but I cut the box that it came in down some and it is (of course) a perfect fit. Lifts right up and even out to get to the underside if I need to, and no more knees poking through! So my advice is "Don't throw away the box."

Overall, I think it's a very good hobby for almost anybody.

We love this loom! My daughter is a bright 7 year-old. She sits for 40 minutes or more and weaves various bits of yarn leftover from my projects. The loom teaches focus, concentration, attention to detail and offers short-term gratification because the kids can see their finished product evolving quickly. Love it -- highly recommend this for Christmas for any boy or girl! This would be a good method for getting boys interested in the fiber arts. . . great stimulating brain candy!!!

My 8 year old daughter and I love this loom! The instructions are easy to follow. The wool yarn included has such rich colors and wonderful feel to it. I'm going to get another one. Harrisville does it again with superb quality.

We took this on our vacation for our 9-year-old daughter to work on in the car. It kept her busy for quite a while! It's pretty large, but does fit on your child's lap. It's a good value too. I would have paid a little more if it had included a little more yarn. Maybe they could sell an accessory kit with more yarn and patterns. But overall, a good toy.

I made gifts of pet portraits with this loom on my lap during TV commercials that now hang on my friends' walls. It's comfortable to use and easy to stash out of the way when not in use. I bought the "Wonder Wand," [...], too, and that makes things go lots faster. Larger projects would of course require something different; but, I don't know that I would consider this a "toy" any longer as you can be as intricate with different materials as your imagination will allow. Fun & easy!

My oldest son asked for a loom for Christmas, so I researched them and found this one - MADE in the USA!!! It is well made, has clear instructions and is easy to use (my son knows nothing about using a loom and figured it out pretty quickly). It makes him focus and sit still, which is not always easy for him to do but so far so good. My husband and I have also been picking it up and doing a few rows here and there. It is actually quite relaxing.

I have experience using table, laptop, and back-strap looms. When it came time to purchase a starter loom for my 10 year old granddaughter, I chose this one and was not disappointed. It is quite sturdy and well made with smooth wooden surfaces. The plastic parts seem well made and well attached. Directions are easy, straight forward, and well illustrated. The included yarn is of a nice quality. This is a well made entry level loom!

This loom is not too big or too small-just the right size for travel or just staying at home and weaving. The tools come with it and make life a lot easier while weaving. Starter yarn colors are available in the package which means you don't have to run out to the craft supply store and buy yarn right away unless you don't like the yarn provided.
The information booklet is handy, only because I already know how to weave-but for beginners I would suggest they add photos of real weavings to enhance the instructions. I am very pleased with this company.
