They're the latest craze among children - and loom bands are set to make one woman a fortune!

Because, after making a dress out of 24,000 of them, Helen Wright and Kathryn Burnan are selling it on eBay. And bids have hit an incredible £170,000!

The dress has sparked a bidding war

The frock took the pair 45 hours to make and they put it on the auction website for a modest £50, modelled by Helen's 12-year-old daughter, Sian.

But the women from Prestatyn, North Wales, were in for a shock as the multi-coloured garment sparked a huge bidding war, which is now on £170,100.

Helen, 42, said: "I got the idea when I saw Sian obsessed by the loom bands."

What a b-looming good idea!
