Shop Talk – Silly Bandz

  Silly Bands  

What the heck are Silly Bandz?

They are a fad that has spread across the United States. Every Tween and there younger siblings are wearing these rubber band bracelets, trading them and begging Mommy and Daddy or using hard earned allowances to plunk down $5 a pack.

They do have an appeal. I have seen the look of wonder on children’s faces while opening a pack to decipher what each design is, then divvy up the spoils between their rat pack. Silly Bandz, they hold their shape when not in use, come in a variety of shapes which include basic shapes, as well as holidays, seasons, animals, music, fantasy and sports shapes.  Kiddos trade, collect and gift these interesting bands. The cooler the design, like the ones below, the more bargaining power the holder has. Think of them as wearable trading cards. Here are a few:

  

The Marvel Comic pack includes Ironmans, Thors, Spidermans, Hulks, Captain Americas, and Wolverines. 

 

The Alphabet pack is great for teaching the 4yo her letters. 

 

The Princess pack includes a Tiara, Diamond Ring, Glass Slipper, Princess, Majestic Castle, Magic Wand. 

You can buy these above and many others here:
