Silly Bands in G section of today’s Boston Globe

Yes, the trend of the rubber bands is in the Globe today – here is the link for the article but you saw it here first…and they are being banned in several schools as too distracting. Are they that much more distracting than the erasers that took hold a while back or silly bandzPokeman cards? What do you think? Do your children have them and are they still allowed in your school?

  • Thanks for posting. I probably wouldn’t have gotten to G for a few days. What about smencils? Webkinz? What is it about out culture that allows grade school children to have these fads and manias?

  • I think the kids are obsessed with trading the bands which wasn’t the case as much with the erasers. All I hear all day is what was traded for what and then a sibling disagreeing on the value of the trade!
