Silly Bandz are rubber bands made of silicone rubber formed into shapes including animals, objects, numbers, and letters. They are distributed by BCP Imports and are normally worn as bracelets. Silly Bandz retail in packages with themes like princesses or animals. A pack of 24 sells for about $5 and packets of 12 for about $2.50. Similar shaped silicone bands are also available under other brand names from a variety of companies. Silly Bandz have been banned from some classrooms for being a distraction. There have been incidents where children have caused serious injuries by extending too many Silly Bandz up their arms, cutting off circulation. Silly Bandz come in many different shapes and colors.
