Going crazy for Silly Bandz?

Raise your hand if you have a car around your wrist, or a heart, or a dog or, say, the state of Texas? Then your probably are wearing Silly Bandz. I just found out about these crazy bracelets but EVERYONE is suddenly wearing them. And I mean everyone - even boys.

If you don't know what Silly Bandz are, they are colorful rubber bracelets that are in interesting shapes. So instead of the typical circle-shape, these bracelets are in all sorts of shapes - from stars to cars to alphabet letters.

Want to see what I mean? Click the "Photos" link below.

Please note that if you click this link, you'll leave the Pink Locker Society site and going to a site that sells stuff.


I'm sooooooo very curious about this trend that I'm running an online survey.

I'm very interested to see what you guys say!
Think pink!

Silly Bandz are pretty out right now, but I think it's more concentrated on the east coast and really hasn't taken off in the Midwest or the west coast like it has in the east.

I know stores are having a hard time keeping them in stock. I'm pretty interested to see how they will be able to meet the demand when this silly craze takes off everywhere else in the USA. It should be pretty crazy, and I'm sure kids will be trying to get their hands on almost every new style that comes out.

And for one I see nothing wrong with this, at least they are not too expensive...better than electronic equipment which can cost an arm and a leg.

I don't see why silly bands are so cool. I mean, EVERY store has 'em. It's rediculous that there so popular. I only have 105 because all my friends gave them to me. My mom only bought two things of them. She even thinks they're stupid. Sorry to all those silly bands fans but, I think there should be a rule that you can only buy 4 or less things of silly bands at ALL stores. They should also be band from school because they're so destacting during class. And I'm only in fourth grade and all my friends wear them in class! think pink! Sophie.
