The Silly Bandz Craze

Silly Bandz, from Brainchild Products, are the original die molded silicone bracelets. The colorful fun shapes come in themed packs of different sizes. Some themes are harder to find than others, making them a sought-after collectible.

Kids all over the US are collecting, trading, wearing and playing with Silly Bandz. If they haven't reached your area yet, just wait. When one child in a school finds them everyone goes crazy over them.

Since the fad took off there have been a number of companies jumping on the rubber band-wagon. Each coming up with their own varieties. Kids don't seem to have a preference in brands, they just want them all.

My daughter has over 100 different bandz, I've lost count!

      There seems to be a million different brands of these silicone bracelets now. Seems everywhere I look there pops in another brand. Can you imagine if you were the first to think of the idea and actually got a Patent, wow, you would be living a little large right now and be dominating the market...
