Loom Love Meets Rainbow Loom Inventor Choon Ng

rainbow loomThe Loom Love family got to to meet Choon Ng at Thursday night’s Detroit Startup Grind session. Needless to say, it was a thrill!

Emily and Maddie got to ask Choon lots of questions about Rainbow Loom (“Are you coming up with any new products?” etc.), and mom and dad Loom Love got to ask lots of questions about Choon’s journey as an entrepreneur.

We all discovered that Choon isn’t just an amazing success story, he’s a down to earth, likeable guy. (He still lives in the same house and drives the same car as he did before he invented the wildly successful Rainbow Loom. When asked how his life has changed, he said: “We eat out at restaurants more.”)

Here is Choon being introduced to the group of entrepreneurs who attended the Q & A at Startup Grind:


Prior to the Q & A, kids got to make Rainbow Loom bracelets and try out the brand new Monster Tail travel loom that will be available in stores in April. (Stay tuned for a review on our Youtube channel!) Emily and Maddie also got their Rainbow Looms signed by Choon.rainbow loom event

While the adults (and Emily) were chit chatting, Maddie got to hang out with the kids from Startup Grind and Choon’s teenage daughter Theresa. (She is the tall one in the back of the photo.)

We all left feeling inspired and energized – not only about Rainbow Loom, but also about running our own small business.

And yes, Choon is working on some new products. We won’t give away any secrets, but they sound mighty exciting!
