Silly Bandz... all the rage in New Bern
They are theme shaped silicon rubber bands that kids love. You can see kids and adults wearing multiple bands around the wrist making a popular, trendy fashion statement. No one knows how long the Silly Bandz trend will last, but the craze is, to say the least, simply crazy. Trying to find a consistent supply chain to feed the craze has proven to be difficult. Receiving shipments is taking weeks so stores are running out. New themes are in the highest demand. Kids love to trade. Maybe this is the modern day version of trading baseball cards (post discovery of widespread major league steroid use). Other brands have also proven to be popular, such as Funky Bandz and Crazy Bandz. One World Shoppe currently has a great supply of Silly Bandz. Check it out.
