Silly bands?

What is up with these silly bands?? My son who is 5 is obsessed with them. He had me buy him a pack at walmart and then proceeded to put them all on his wrist. I had to take more then half of them off so he wouldn't wear all of them to school.

  • Yeah htat was a fad that was over in about 6 months here. During that time we had to limit DS to 10 silly bands at a time.

  • Thankfully that craze has passed! They multiplied and reproduced all over our house, car, closets, drawers, cupboards, absolutely EVERYWHERE. It was bound to be a shortlived fad.
