Exciting news everyone! Jouets Choo-Choo is THE place to come for Silly Bandz! Although seemingly nothing more than silicone bracelets, because they come in so many fun shapes and colors, kids everywhere are embracing this craze with open arms!
The bands themselves were originally designed in Japan by Yumiko Hashi and Masanori Haneda in 2002. They were meant to be a cuter, stronger alternative to rubber bands, and thus created in an attempt to conserve office supplies.
When Silly Bandz creator Robert Croak first saw these bands, he knew that, if marketed as an item that could be both worn and collected, these bands could become something fun and fashionable. In November 2008 the Silly Bandz as we know them were born.
Silly Bandz are fun and cute, and kids of all ages are wearing them. From preschoolers to high school kids, everyone has them! And if you stop by Jouets Choo-Choo, a pack of 24 Silly Bandz can be yours for $5.99 CDN (+txs)! Come quick before they run out!
