silly bandz

Kids (and adults alike) are going crazy over these colorful rubber bands molded into animal/sports/religion/etc shapes, SILLY BANDZ. Shops are selling over 1,000 packs per hr and there’s so much demand that kids are trading/dealing in schools. It’s getting to the point where it’s so distracting that schools are asking students to leave them at home.

Honestly, I don’t get it. I had no knowledge of these products until last week.
It’s like an extension to those LiveStrong rubber bands, that within a few months, China was coming up with all sorts of rubber bands in every color, just because they sell. These shaped rubber bands look like cheap non-uniformly shaped rubber bands when they are worn, so what’s the big hype about it? I have no clue. Please, someone enlighten me what’s so amazing about these rubber bands.

edit: I forgot to post what they look like as is. They sell a pack of six for around $5… just imagine how much profit they’re making – they obviously do not cost a lot to manufacture in China, and even including shipping, licensing fee, etc., they’d still be making a ton of money.
