Silly Bandz BANNED? Have no fear....Wear 'em on a shirt!

So, right after I posted the previous Silly Bandz post on twitter I received this :


According to this Time Magazine article, Silly Bandz are getting "banned" from schools everywhere.

What's a kid to do?
Wear them on a shirt (according to LikeWear).

Be a rebel!

I dig 'em.

Silly Bandz...A dangerous trend?

silly bandz

The Silly Bandz craze-a-lama has hit our home.

To be honest, I don't really get them. 

But then again, I was into slap bracelets and New Kids on the Block when I was Big Girl's age.
My momma probably didn't get that either.


Silly Bandz remind me of jelly bracelets except they are shaped like "stuff".
(dinosaurs, hearts, rabbits...)

Kids are loading their arms up. They even trade with each other.
They are NOT cheap either.
(Maybe I'm a tight wad though)
A package of 8 costs nearly $3.00 at our Walgreens!

Back when I was a kid, we could get about 20 jelly bracelets for a dollar. We could also get a candybar for 50 cents and a coke was NOT one dollar!

Folks are saying that they may be dangerous.

I'll admit that when I glanced at the article I was thinking dangerous as in a choking kind of way but they are saying dangerous as in a "blood flow" kind of way.

What are your thoughts?

**edited to add: I was browsing the Sillybandz website and noticed that you can get a package of 24 silly bandz for $4.95.

What's up with that WALGREENS? HUH?
8 for $3.00....COME ON!

What a great concept...


Think about it: 
You are at the playground. Baby wants carrots. Baby doesn't want to wait until you get home. 

Take them out of the diaper bag and open that jar, mom. HURRY! Shove 'em in....

Ahhh much better, huh?

What do you do with the dirty spoon?
There is no way to clean it.

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy friends!
I hope you have a wonderful day with your families.

A winner has been chosen for the KidsCraft USA playhouse. Click HERE to see if you won.

Video #2 is up, finally...
Click HERE to go to my Youtube channel.
I am "trying" to do one video a day (or maybe every other day). We shall see how it goes though.

I'm going to be opening up another blog for all my personal "stuff" and taking this blog back to it's roots (trendy finds). I will let everyone know when that happens.

Which brings me to another thing . . .
I am looking for TWO reviewers for this site.

*Have a baby/toddler?
I am looking for YOU!

Often I am asked to partake in reviews for products aimed specifically for expectant mothers or smaller children and I have to turn them down since my kids are older.
I hate doing this because these could actually be products that the blog readers are interested in... so instead of turning them down, I will just get someone else to review and post their thoughts.

Email me. (Addy is located at the top under contact)

Sell a trendy product for children or MOM?
Make a TRENDY craft?
Email me!
I would love to feature your shop.
