The Hot New Trend


I found this in my son's cubby at pre-school. Cute, eh? Lagging behind, as I usually am in these trends, I just found out that these items are the hot new accessory for kids (so naturally, I wanted to share, for anyone else who might not have tween kids in the house). They're called Silly Bandz and come in all shapes and colors for easy stacking on the wrist (or wherever).

The band was a gift from his school (I believe - they've been studying Australia all month), but I found out about them through Lark Books' brand new website and blog. It doesn't officially launch until June 7, 2010, but you can visit them (and learn more about Silly Bandz) here.

Thanks for visiting.

My mom found out about them a few weeks ago and just bought some for my niece and nephew. I had never heard of them until she found about them. Crazy trends. I am trying to remember the crazy stuff we had as kids.

Well, I remember the neon-colored jelly bracelets that were so popular. These seem a little Material Girl-esque, the way they stack on the wrist.

just a little heads up, I have found them for the best price @ Bed Bath & Beyond, ;)

Cool, thanks! I gave it to the SO when he came home from pre-school, and he's quite keen to add to his collection.

my mother in law just got these for my kids too! I had no idea what they were of course. I too am always the last to know. :)
