This review is from: ALEX Toys Do-it-Yourself Wear Friends 4 Ever Jewelry (Toy)
First let me admit I too was confused by the instructions. Four languages describing the same process steps and all jammed onto a single page? There is so much noise on the instruction sheet, I completely understand when someone rates this product low for being too difficult. However, once I saw the reference on the sheet to a website (alex toys [dot] com) and the fact there are videos available to show how it is done, my daughter and I went there. In just a few minutes, we watched as a young girl demonstrated how to use the looms. Like an old V8 drink commercial, you will be knocking yourself in the head for how easy this truly is.

From the home page of their site, follow the "Product Instructions" link. The video for the [square] loom is available under the link "Best Friend Bands". The (round) or petal loom instruction video is under the link "Friends 4 Ever".

Though all the bands use the same two weaving styles and you are only varying the pattern of colors, this product is a wonderful way to pull your child's attention away from the TV, iPod, NDS and the refrigerator. It is a great way to keep them occupied in the car on a long trip.

Also, the bands created using the round loom may seem somewhat short and you will think the strings need to be cut longer, know that they have a tendency to <---stretch---> once completed. This is especially true if you keep the strings particularly taut while looming.
