|PiggyBack Bandz a version that takes the elastic bracelet to a whole new level – perpendicular to your wrist! “The Bandz That Stand™.” Essentially, is a mini shaped band that “piggybacks” on top of the traditional shaped rubber band allowing the top shape to be easily seen when placed on the wrist.
So what is the ‘wow’ factor? PiggyBack Bandz at first glance looks similar to many other band bracelets until you slide it on your wrist and watch it stand at attention, upright. Layer the bandz with one, two or a half-dozen more to create a word, a secret code, a design or whatever the imagination whips up. Then trade with your friends! Bandz in every imaginable shape, color and style have been introduced including bandz in tie dye, glitter, glow in the dark, camo and UV activated.
There are currently 9 PiggyBack Bandz themes. Five new and improved packs: Glam, Football, Sealife, Cool Rides and Safari, feature brighter colors. The Glam, Alphabet and Extra Letters packs now come in funky tie-dye patterns. A new ninth theme, Baseball, is available now. Each retails for $4.99 per pack of 25 bandz (26 for each letter of the alphabet).
Dads will enjoy the sports themes, as well as the cool cars, just to mention a few. With the PiggyBack Bandz dads can interact with his kids as they are creative with their imaginations to create words, secret codes with their child.
As one of our dad testers wrote: "Another great dad-daughter bonding experience. After you've done her hair, played dress-up, had your nails done, and build a few castles, it's time to relax and put on a few Piggy Back Bandz. With standard sillybandz, once they're on your wrist you have no idea what shape the band actually is. With Piggy Back Bandz, problem solved. They add a mini version of the whatever it is you're wearing (whether it's a lava lamp, your name spelled out, a baseball bat, champagne glass, etc) stands on top of the actual bracelet. So now you can be cool--and everyone will know it."
What we liked best however, was the possibilities using these different bands as a positive motivator for dad to use if he coaches peewee soccer, or if dad wants to provide a special motivation for household chores for little kids.
