Cool Toy of the Day: Piggyback Bandz

Piggyback Bandz

Unless you were hiding under a rock, you probably know that one of the big toy fads lately were Silly Bandz.

First I want to say that when I first saw Silly Bandz, I had a "why didn’t I think of that" moment. Then I had a "why didn’t anyone else think of that before" moment.

Now I’m having a "why didn’t the company that makes Silly Bandz think of this" moment.

The toy that made me think that is Piggyback Bandz. They took the shaped rubber band one step further and added an extra little band to the edge. When you wear them, the little extra shape sticks up in 3D on your wrist.

Aside from the usual shapes, they also have letters. The letters are great because you can combine bands and spell words and short phrases with them on your wrist.

Piggyback Bandz come in eight themes at this time: Glam, Football, Groovy, Sealife, Alphabet, Cool Rides, Safari and Extra Letters.

The only place I’ve found them for sale is on their own website.

Here’s a quick promotional video of them. It’s not a very good video. But it shows the concept.
