Aren't rubber bands boring? Well they don't have to be thanks to the ingenuity of Robert Croak. Silly Bandz are the newest kids toy sensation in America. Mr. Croak came up with the idea awhile back, when he took a trip to Japan. While visiting a market there he saw vendors selling animal figure rubber bands. He brought the idea back to the United States and now kids all over America are buying , trading, and collecting Silly Bandz.
Silly Bandz are much more than just rubber bands because when they are on your wrist they look like plain old rubber bands , but when you take them off they pop into different shapes and sizes. The estimated number of Silly Bandz owned by 5th Graders at Ranch Creek Elementary in Colorado Springs is over 500!
Like many businesses these days, Silly Bandz has its own website ( www.sillybandz.com).At this site,you can customize the bandz, among other things.
One of the fun things about Silly Bands is that there are so many types to choose from. There are packs of princesses, baseballs, dinosaurs, pets, Halloween, beach, western and many more. Silly Bandz are for ages one to 100, as anyone could use them in their everyday life. Silly Bandz can be used for many things. You can use them for tying your hair or tying a shirt just like rubber bands, or you can wear them on your wrists and ankles.
Most Silly Bandz come in packs of 25 and you can purchase them at many local stores. They are affordable and fun.
