Davis Adjustable Loom for weaving with loopers and yarn.

A: Box lid, yellow printed in red and blue. Illustration shows to girls and a boy seated at a table; one girl is weaving, the other two children seem to be admiring what they, or the girl weaving, has already made from the adjustable loom. There is a "Prestege Toy" logo printed on the lid, as well as Parents' Magazine commendation. B: The bottom of the box, tan cardboard. C: Insert to hold the loom in place in the box, yellow cardboard, folded and cut to accept the loom. D-E: To blue metal pieces of the loom, which fit together at opposite corners. (The pieces of the loom are "L" shaped.) Teeth (like the teeth on a comb) run along the edges of the loom. It is around these teeth that one weaves, looping the thread of loopers. F-G: Two loopers of white knit. H: A looper of red knit.

Loopers are rings of knitted fabric, that will stretch, so they can be used across the teeth of the loom.
