 The counterfeit products do not comply with any ASTM, CPSIA, EU, or Japan’s toy safety standards.The counterfeit products are very similar to the original/genuine product. They are sold at the online stores and kiosk stores nationwide targeting unsuspecting customers.

Counterfeit/fake products may contain lead and other harmful substances. If you suspect that you may have purchased a fake product, please discontinue use immediately for your children’s safety.

As you can see, these fake products possess the same name as ours and have only minor differences in their almost identical packaging; therefore, it is very difficult to differentiate the genuine from the counterfeit products. The counterfeit products are inferior in quality, are unsafe for your children, and have not been through testing in accordance with Government Toy Safety Standards (may contain lead and other dangerous substances). Many online sellers are using the pictures of the original Rainbow Loom® to list online but ship counterfeits to customers. Please purchase from our authorized retailers or our website to ensure that you are purchasing the genuine Rainbow Loom® products.
