1. Are your kids into Silly Bandz (and their many counterparts...wacky bands, crazy bands, etc.)?


2. How long have they been into them?


3. Are they easy to find in your area? If so, where do you typically buy them?


4. Are they allowed (or were they) to school?


5. Any extra info?

I have no idea what they are!!! But I'll be sure to avoid them once I do, the last thing we need around here is something else to collect!!!!

I had heard they were like getting Beanie Babies at the top of the craze as far as being able to find them and that they were more expensive.

I just asked Rhiannon and she's never heard of them. I saw them at Toys R Us a couple weeks ago. I guess they haven't hit our city yet. :) My friend in St. Louis said her girls are collecting them and they actually banned them at their school because they're so distracting. I also saw a news article about other schools around the country banning them.

1. Are your kids into Silly Bandz (and their many counterparts...wacky bands, crazy bands, etc.)? We have some crazy bands that my bf in FL sent for Alora's bday.
2. How long have they been into them? May
3. Are they easy to find in your area? If so, where do you typically buy them? Haven't seen them here, but haven't looked.
4. Are they allowed (or were they) to school? They were not a big deal here before the school year, but my friend in FL said they were banned in the schools there.
5. Any extra info? I HATE them. The Crazy Bands break SO easy. We had 3 break the first day. Are the Silly Bands any better? The Crazy Bands are a really thing rubber band. Lovely to have the 6 and 10 year-old having fits because they had already broken. :(

Out of the 300 or so in our house only one has broken and I think that was a Crazy band. So, I would guess the Silly Bandz might be a bit better.
