Here's something on the crafty side! There's a new gadget on the market that will actually weave friendship bracelets for you – and it's available in Canada now.
It's called the KumiKreator, and it's a Cool Maker product that will weave all kinds of bracelets right before your eyes.
I always loved friendship bracelets but hated actually making them, so I would have loved to have this when I was growing up.
It's inspired by the art of Japanese Kumi bracelets (hence the name), and this kit includes 88 spools of string and everything else you need to make up to 10 bracelets. It sells for $39.95 at Chapters Indigo, where you can also buy thread refills, like this Kumi Neons Fashion Refill Pack for $12.95.
