Have you found yourself caught up in the silly bandz craze? lol

I find myself looking for silly bandz for my son everytime I go to a store now, checking to see if they have a unique pack for sale,lol. I think he's only up to 73 bandz so far and he's still wanting more and he's crazy about them. He's stopped wearing them on his wrist but keeps them in a container and brings them out when other kids come over to trade them,lol.

  • Sometimes. I just feel like brand named items tend to care more about the product they make and sell, therefore they last longer and are more durable. Where as non-brand items always seem crappy. Like...Victoria's Secret. I don't have one where I live, but I used to buy from them all the time and since there isn't one around I get what they carry at wal-mart and their panties don't last very long, nor do their bras. I miss Victoria's Secret. I think I will drive to one and get me some nice panties and a bra.

  • I dont get the point in them at all... Not trying to be rude but they are a waist in money & material - when everyone is trying to go "green" & do more for the planet this just seems silly.. I also dont like buying into the hype & making something so silly make a kid feel special or cool.... Trends come & go & it does nothing but run through your cash & make you consume more & more...
    It also singles kids out whos parents wont buy them or dont have the money to buy them.

    Sorry I sounds so mean! LOL I dont mean to be!

  • I just bought some about an hour ago for my kids. I didn't know they wanted any, but they just got home from camp and my oldest son had one that his best friend had given him. He and my younger son went through the packages and took out the ones they wanted and they're giving the rest away at a birthday party they're going to in a little while. I remember being a kid and the "jelly bracelets" being the craze.

  • Nope because I told my DD she can't have any because she chews on them. and they break them

    Answer by JayRo00 at 3:26 PM on Jun. 25, 2010

  • No. I think they're cute, but I don't really like bracelets at all. They annoy me. I can't stand watches, either.
