For decades now, there have been plenty of toys introduced to help kids make jewelry—but none of these toys are quite like the iLoom from Wooky Entertainment.

What really sets the iLoom apart is the fact that it uses the screen of a tablet in part of the weaving process. The bracelet kit for kids between the ages of 10 and 16 includes thread and the components of a small loom. With the aid of on-screen instructions, kids are able to follow the process for making a number of complex bracelet designs with ease.

While versions of this toy already exist in more low-tech formats, the inclusion of technology is exactly what makes the iLoom's DIY jewelry crafts appealing to young digital natives.
