Android mascot part of latest elementary school trend
If you have a child in elementary school, then I'm sure you know about Silly Bandz, stretchy rubberband bracelets that come in various shapes, sizes, and colors that look like a jumbled mess when worn but spring back to their original shape when taken off. My nieces love them; they collect and trade them with their friends and even use them as currency (e.g., 50 bands for a cute pencil sharpener). I don't get their appeal, personally, but my parents didn't understand why I liked slap bracelets when I was a kid, so it's just one of those generational things.
Anyway, given the immense popularity of Silly Bandz in schools, there are obviously a lot of knock-off brands and imitators making all kinds of different shapes, from Spongebob Squarepants and sports to cars and sea animals. And wouldn't you know it: there's an Android pack. They come in a variety of sizes (the small ones can be used as rings) and colors, and some even glow in the dark.
Trends come and go and it won't be long before your kids think Silly Bandz are as stupid as you do, but while they like it and you're buying it for them, you may as well get them something related to the HTC EVO, right? And with these, at least you'll have some cool rubberbands when your kids move on to the next must-have thing in school.[Amazon | Etsy]
