Super Strong Stretchy Circles
I used a stretchy rope for one of my creative movement classes last year, and they love it, so I had to buy one for myself to use in my other classes. The kids love that it stretches, and it is great for team work activities (row row row your boat, choo choo train, merry go round, big and small). It is also great for encouraging arm strength and tummy strength (laying down and then getting up using tummy muscles and not hands or arms). So far the quality is good, but I only used it for one day. I will have to update as I use it more (I teach almost everyday M-F).

This large elastic band has potential.
This large elastic band has the potential to be a really fun activity. However, we had one older child that decided to get in on the action with several children of varying ages. He took off on a run which caused several of the younger children to fall and others to fall into or over them. The fun came to a screeching halt in a matter of minutes.

Kids had fun
A little rough when someone got slung around, but the kids loved it. Supervise them and it will be great. Good for PE, too.

Great price and fun!
Time will tell if it will last, but so far so good. The stitches seem all well made. I wish the fabric was fleece like those I've seen elsewhere, but it is very colorful. I don't know how the fabric will react when I will wash it (hand wash), but usually, this type of fabric tends to shrink and lose its shape.....

Good, Cheap Fun!!
Kids love this. The possibilities are endless and this has proved to be lots of fun for us and our kids. It is very cheap for the amount of fun and imagination it can spark.

Awesome for Creative Play!
Whoever thought a giant cloth-covered rubber band could provide so much fun? I bought this for my three young daughters to play with, and they have LOVED it. It has been a horse reign, a choo-choo train (it holds all the cars together as they go down the sidewalk), a storytime circle, a lasso, and a ton more. I highly recommend this -- you will love watching to see what your children will come up with next when playing with it!
