I love using hat looms too. I would stronly recommend that if anyone wants to but just one loom then they go for the teen/small adult one (usually the second largest one available). It is big enough fror me and small enough for my 4 year old as it makes such a soft stretchy hat and makes life easy for those in SA who are trying to distribute to a variety of heads.
If you are good with a knitting needle or a crochet hook you will have no trouble with the loom. In fact you might recognize it from your childhood days as a variation of a spool type device with 4 nails at the top that we used to make a long "knitted" tail that you could coil into a rug. I taught myself to use it by watching a YouTube video of which there are many. Just search knitting loom.
There are several sizes. The smallest one which is generically blue (in the US) is for newborns. The red one which has 31 pegs is the one used for 1-5 year old hats. There is a green one which is larger for the next size up-adult and then an even larger one (I forget the color) for really big heads. Of course there are also wooden ones but the peg numbers are usually consistent from company to company. Jeanne is right about not wrapping the pegs to tightly. Have fun.
