Lifelong learning in the digital age

Justin Reich


The must-have toy of the 2013 Christmas season was Rainbow Loom. Rainbow Loom is a simple plastic board with vertical pegs that comes with hundreds of small, colorful rubber bands. Children weave rubber bands across the pegs to make bracelets and other charms. Rainbow Loom got thousands of young boys to play with pink rubber bands, and for that alone it deserves hearty commendation.
