Yet another item that you should go buy now (because you just won’t find it come December) is SillyBandz. Simple in design, but an amazing idea. SillyBandz are just like the rubber bracelets from back when I was a kid, but each is 100% molded silicone so when you take it off your wrist it forms the shape of an animal or design!
The other good thing about SillyBandz is that they come in packs of 24 (four each of six designs) so you’ve got some for yourself and some to trade with friends!
Be aware, there are other companies producing “Character Rubber Bands”, of the ones I’ve seen (and purchased) they aren’t all of the same quality as genuine SillyBandz. Real SillyBandz, for example, made it through a trip in the washing machine while some non-Silly Bands did not..
New designs are being released all the time. Be on the lookout for the two newest series, Beach (which are UV activated and change color in the sun!) and Art Fest (which are Tye Die!)
The Spring series is sure to become a collectors item, as it is the first set to have been “Retired” (and if anyone finds the Ocean set, I really want the penguin!)
