Googly Bands Review and Giveaway



Have you heard about the shaped rubber bands that seem to be the latest fad with kids? Googly Bands are the latest generation of silicone bracelets. The neat thing is that you can wear them as a bracelet and they return to their original shape when you take them off. My youngest girls were so excited to get to try them out as they are the hot thing among all their friends right now. They currently have many different themed packs out right now from dinosaurs, musical instruments, sports, to princesses.

You can check out a sampling of some of the newest shapes below.


My 2 youngest split up the "Treats" Pack which included cute shapes like ice cream cones, candy, and gingerbread men.  They were so excited to get to wear them to school.  They loved that the shapes came back when you took the bracelet off.

Some of the shapes do run small, so I would recommend these for elementary age children.

Right now Googly Bands is holding a design contest.  The winner will receive a $50 gift card and a chance to design the new style of Googly Bands.  How fun is that?  You can find more information here.



Googly® Bands are for boys and girls aged 4 and up, and are available at most major retailers.  You can also find them on Amazon.



Although we are mostly a blogs giveaway directory, from time to time we think it is fun to hold our own giveaways too!  Thanks to Googly Bands, one lucky Great Blog Giveaways reader is going to receive a 12 pack of Safari-themed Googly Bands.
