Maybe you've heard of Silly Bandz.
They're these pliable bracelets, most likely made of toxic plastic, that are all the rage among the kiddos. I have stepped on — or my vacuum has sucked up — a heart, a scorpion and a car. And that's just today.
Slipped onto the wrist, these goofy bands look like nothing. It's only when you take them off that you can see the true shapes.
Truth be told, I've never felt strongly about them one way or the other. But, the kids like 'em, they're cheap, so whatev. Then I discovered they make WONDER WOMAN ($3) and PEEPS ($5.50) bands.
Two of my favorite characters.
Naturally, I'm now a fan. The Wonder Woman bands were gifted to me for Christmas (thanks, Kiera!) and I have my sights set on those Peeps. Oh yes, they will be mine.
