I see these bands every day at work. My students are wearing them and even some of the teachers on staff have a few in their own collection. My pre-teen tells me the Grade 7’s at school wear them too. They are extremely popular!
They come in all sorts of colours and themes and cost about $5 a pack. I saw them yesterday at Indigo Bookstore. Most places, however, can’t keep enough of them in stock. They sell out that fast!
The inventor? Robert Croak. “He’s the rubber band man who came up with the idea after seeing a similar product designed for Japanese offices. His business has grown 10 times in the past six months”.
Makes you wonder what will be next …
