If you're a parent you'll almost certainly have seen these on your floor or in the hoover - they're Loom Bands. They're basically like brightly coloured elastic bands that children are fashioning into a variety of colourful creations.

There seemed to be no limit to the clothing items that can be created. Ian's kids made him a tie for Father's Day from their bands, which is very cute. Slightly less cute was this item of clothing, listen to hear quite how inventive some kids were:
