My kids started pestering me to take them to the Great Canadian Dollar store this weekend to buy Silly Bandz. What? What on earth are Silly Bandz? Let me sum it up for you quickly. Silly Bandz are simply cheap, colourful elastic bands that are shaped like objects (farm animals, dinosaurs, cars, etc…) that the kids wear on their wrists. Whoever came up with this idea is a freakin’ genius, or has a hate-on for parents. They’re elastics! There’s nothing fancy about them, and they don’t seem to last very long… which is great, because then you can go back to the store and get new ones!
Silly Bandz. Who would have ever thought?
