A new fad is smacking Penn Manor students right in the face. SillyBandz.
SillyBandz are the average jelly bracelets but when they are removed from the wrist they take the form of an animal or shape. They come in every color including glow-in-the dark! They come in many different packs such as the pet pack, the zoo pack, the sea pack, the basic pack, the dinosaur pack, etc.
The SillyBandz idea was thought up by Robert Croak. They are sold only in the US and Canada but other places are looking into possibly selling Sillybandz as well.
“The thing that I like most about Sillybandz is that it teaches kids how to share,” Clair Lethart said an employee working with SillyBandz.
Sillybandz are sold on their website www.sillybandz.com for $4.95 for a 24 pack of bracelets, but they can be found at various other places like 5 Below or Walmart.
But what is it about these new bracelets that is driving students mad?
Students at Penn Manor had a variety of reasons.
“I like Sillybandz because they’re cool and amusing and you can stretch them,” Becca Eckman said.
“They’re stretchy and they prettified my wrist and I like taking it off and showing people my long-neck giraffe,” said Genny Leonards as she played with her bracelet.
“I like Sillybandz because they’re puuuurfect,” Zach Miller said referring to his kitty cat Sillyband.
Sillybandz are very popular not only in Penn Manor but all over the United States and Canada.
It looks like Sillybandz might find a way to stretch themselves worldwide.
