While sitting outside at a family party this weekend, I noticed my 8-year-old niece’s wrists were covered with little neon bracelets. So, I asked her what the significance of them was. She gave me the most shocking look and couldn’t believe that I had never seen these stretchy, new accessories. It took me the longest time, before I noticed that when the bracelet is removed, it takes the shape of an animal or another fun figure. Such a simple idea and now they’ve turned into a bigger fad than the power bead bracelets of 2000. If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve seen or heard of these bracelets before me. Apparently, I’m out of the loop with the latest “tween” fashion crazes, because they’ve been around for a little while now. They were born in Birmingham, Alabama in 2008 and continued to spread to cities everywhere. With that, these unique wristbands have been banned from some high schools because students use them like rubber bands, reaping havoc for teachers. (At least this is what my niece informed me of!)
By the end of my weekend, I was excited to learn that I wasn’t the only one who just discovered these popular bands. The day after my niece introduced me to them, I met a 26-year-old guy who was sporting one around his wrist. I couldn’t help but ask him “Which animal is that one?!” He got a kick out of it because he just found out about them as well. To top it off, when I got to work Monday morning, I talked to yet another person who came into contact with these little animal bracelets, because of his sister. So now, if you see someone wearing one of these, you'll know what they are and want in on the craze too!
