So SILLY!!



No matter where we go, we're rarely without our silly bandz.  
Well the kids aren't anyway.

Oh why didn't I think to shape the old swatch bracelets into all sorts of animal shapes, etc 
and sell them for $5 a pack??  
sigh....

Kudos to whomever marketed those 'silly' things....genius shear genius!!  



look closely and notice all 3 kids in this pictures have them on.

Oddly, I have never seen them or heard of them. I wonder if it is a regional thing.

oh I'm betting you will Tricia!
We had a friend in another state ask our kids about them a few months ago and we had no idea what they were. but oh my they are everywhere! Toddlers to teens. What they find so fun is trading them. The wonderful thing is that Christian book stores even have them with Christian symbols as well!! There are tons of 'generic' silly bandz now....
oh yes they are EVERYWHERE....my kids went to 9 stores with their Grandmama before they found a store that had just gotten a truck in - for their first ones.

They are all over South Florida. The Grandbrat had them on both arms. She says everyone at her middle school wear them. Why didn't I think of that?

exactly what I keep thinking Patty because whomever did it is a bazillionaire now no doubt. But the most brilliant person of all, is who MARKETED the silly things!! How on earth do you get kids preschool to highschool buying the SAME thing?! Yep....brilliant!

We are obsessed with them in Knoxville...how many times have I wondered myself why I didn't have that idea? My favorite thing is that Olivia matches them to her outfit every day!
