Silly Bands Factory review/giveaway Closed!

review/giveaway
Alison has graciously allowed me to review her husbands new invention for the so popular Silly Bands.  This wonderful dad is an engineer and an inventor who developed these bands for his children. This dad, Josh Malone, believes he has  figured out how to keep the silly band going strong forever. He has created the Silly Band Factory.  It is a kit with which kids can make their own silly bands. I myself have 8 grandchildren and I know how much these kids love the silly bands.  The new invention for the Silly Bands will definitely make these bands more fun. 

Josh wants every child to be able to enjoy them as much as his 8 children do!

You've seen them everywhere, those crazy silicon silly bands.  I'm sure your kids have come home from school with a few dozen wrapped around their wrists.  In the past year, the arms of school kids across the nation have suddenly been encased by them.  The bands stretch off of their wrists and into their respective shapes - maybe an animal or symbol - and then get traded to a new wrist.

This fad has reached beyond gender, beyond demographic, beyond age. I'll bet you've even worn some yourself. There is hardly a kid in the U.S. who hasn't had at least one silly band on his or her arm.  Retailers in all industries from toys to sports and even building supplies have jumped on board, stocking these bands in hundreds of themes from various companies.


Make your own Silly Bands at home!
Silly Band Factory kit comes with a peg board, 32 pegs, and 24 specially formulated silly band hoops that can be formed into millions of unique shapes. The user simply creates a dot-to-dot outline by placing the pegs in the pegboard, then threads the silly band hoop in and around the pegs, then bakes it in the oven for 15 minutes @ 200 degrees.  After cooling, their custom silly band shape is cured and ready for wear, play, or trade.
Your child will love making their own name or favorite logo all by themselves!
 This kit has 3 different sizes of bands for different size designs.  Larger names or shape will use the largest band.
* Be sure to have an adult help.  Never let a child place anything in the hot oven or remove the bands by themselves. You may want to place the peg board on to a cookie sheet.  It makes it a little easier to remove the board from the oven.  Also remember to allow the board to cool for 10-15 min.  before touching*

My grandson, Brice, made a "B" for himself.  He loves doing this!
Here are few designs from the Silly Band Factory gallery:

Joy
The Silly Band Factory Kit is really a great invention for the Silly Bands.  This kit should make the already cool Silly Bands even more fun and a lot more cooler!

  145. i learned that you can Simply create a design on the peg board by using the pegs to create a shape. Carefully wrap the silly band around the pegs. Put your creation in an oven and bake 15 minutes. Allow your newly created silly band to cool for a few minutes. Now you’re ready to show your friends your newly created silly band
