Slap Watches for Boys

Updated on March 15, 2013

Slap Watches for Boys

Tween and teen boys love trends, as much as the girls do, and when the slap bracelets hit the tweens of the early 90's, it was humorous when I confiscated a distracting item from a boy in my 6th period math class...a camoflauge slap bracelet. Since the student was a relative, I felt terrible, and tried to return it to his mom. However, she wouldn't hear of it! Poor kid!

Slap watches make for fun timepieces, though they may seem a novelty. Many today rely more upon a cell phone to tell the time, but watches still serve as classy or funky fashion accessories. Without further ado, let me introduce you to some of the slap band watches that might suit the needs of the tween or teen boy in your home!

Watches by Slap

Bearing the actual title of the timepiece, Slap Watches are simple, with minimal numbering, and the logo, "Slap" across the top of the face. Orange hands move in time, and website details indicate that this brand involves interchangeable faces, making it possible to mix and match faces and bands. Not only does that provide for fun tween fashion, but also for a great math lesson in combinations (probability and statistics).

Unisex Slap Watches

In addition to the colors displayed below, Slap has some colors that would tend to be more pleasing to girls, including pink, and purple. Unisex watches are great choices for grab bags, party favors or other occasions. You can tuck them away for niece and nephew gifts or as gifts for unexpected birthday parties your children are invited to by friends and classmates. The simplicity of the face is great for the tween or teen, and the variety of colors can coordinate with any taste or interest.

Silly Slapz : Analog Slap Watches for Early Learning of Time Telling

If you are working with a youngster who is learning to tell time, then a personal watch is a great prompt for practice. The slap band watch adds another benefit for elementary aged students as it goes on and comes off easily. This is one of the best options for the child who is developing that academic skill of time telling while also developing manual skills. Pick it as a gift or as an encouragement for the youngster who is having trouble telling time.

Cloud 9 Slap Watches

If your son likes bright colors, Cloud 9 sports the bright neons of the early 80's, as well as black and white slap watches. These watches are more on the pricey side for a trend, though. Select these for occasions like birthdays and holidays for friends' children. If you need a quick easy gift idea, a trendy watch is sure to work!

      Great watches. Tried to buy one for my son, but amazon.com wouldn't send it to France. Too bad. why on earth doesn't Amazon make itself really international?
