Holiday Gift Guide Day 3 - Silly Bandz Review and Giveaway

I was at the Utah state fair with my 11 year old niece when she dragged me over to a vendor table and told me she had to show me something. She proceeded to tell me how cool they were, and how everyone was wearing them.

The cool thing that she just had to show me turned out to be Silly Bandz. Silly Bandz are shaped bracelets that no matter how much you stretch them, they return to their original shape.

For example, these bracelets are from the Hello Kitty collection


They come in 24 packs, and kids love to wear them and trade them.  They are currently one of the hottest tween accessories on the market.

My daughter isn't a tween yet (thank goodness), but even she loves them.  She loves that they are super stretchy, and don't hurt when her sister pulls them.  Here is her attempt at modeling them for me.




When the bracelets are on, it's hard to tell the original shape, but with the Hello Kitty collection you can still make out the bow.

Apparently the fact that you can't make out the shape is part of the fun.  People don't know what style you are wearing unless you show them.

Silly Bandz make a great gift, because not only are they a HOT product they are inexpensive, and there is a huge variety of styles

To Buy It - Silly Bandz bracelets start at 4.95 making them a great gift option!  There are also rings retailing at 1.99, and a collection of necklaces

To Win It -
Silly Bandz has also provided me with 4 packs of bracelets to give away to my readers!  4 winners will receive 1 package of silly bandz!  Styles include Justin Bieber, Dora, Sponge Bob, and Yo Gabba Gabba
