If you think the rubber band looms are cool, then check out this new fun weaving toy from WowWee Company called the Digiloom! When I was asked to review this electronic interactive loom that allows your child to design, weave, and create their very own bracelets, I knew it was going to be a new favorite toy at my house! With a free, kid friendly app, you can choose from one of the 8 pre-designed bracelets or create your own! There are letters, numbers, symbols and emojis making the possibilities endless!
The Digiloom Starter Kit
To use this interactive weaving toy, you connect via bluetooth to the free app. The Digiloom app is available on google play and the apple store. It works with Apple and Android devices. There is a full list of compatible devices on the WowWee website. It requires 4 AA batteries that aren’t included. To connect your device to your Digiloom, simply open the app, follow the prompts, and you will be connected! Once in the app you can choose a pre-designed pattern or create one!
I chose to create a new pattern. There are tons of fun symbols and emojis to choose from. I opted for a lot of little hearts and the name of our blog, followed by more little hearts. Within the app, there is a helpful video available to watch for each step! The app also shows you which section you are weaving on the bracelet.
How the Digiloom Works:
The app does a super job of walking you through each step of the way. When everything is set up it is time to start. I thought it might be easiest to show you via video how the Digiloom works rather than write it out to try to explain it. My daughter, who is dreaming of the day when she is old enough to write her own blog, helped me with the review. Check it out here:
The Digiloom just hit the shelves on August 4th and is available exclusively at Michaels Stores! The Digiloom sells for $49.99 and themed kits sell for just $7.99. The more you practice the better your digiband bracelets look! As a parent I love that this weaving toy is one that takes time to be played with. I foresee many upcoming winter days when it is too cold to be outside that she will be inside weaving on her app controlled loom! Once she got the hang of the weaving, she really got into making them! It is a really fun toy!
