Raise your hand if you have ever had a silicone band around your wrist. OK, you can lower your hand now, because chances are that silicone band is slipping further down your wrist. When the yellow "Livestrong" bracelets came out several years ago, the silicone band craze took off. Since then, I have seen silicone bands for just about every organization out there, and even Disney themed bands for the kids.
Mungi Bands are the latest in the silicone band craze, and kids will love to connect and collect these magnetic bands. With cool designs for girls and boys, these award-winning bands connect to each other with a magnetic click and allow kids to express their mood of the moment.
We were sent three packages of Mungi Bands to review. Since Rylie is quite the dancing princess these days, of course I chose the "Dancing Princess" pack, along with the bright colored "70s". I also chose the "Shark Attack" pack because I knew Bryce would want some too.
The colorful Mungi Bands are made from thick silicone, and they have magnets at each end. The magnets are encased in the silicone, so they will not detach and fall off.
The bands then connect to one another with a click, and they stay connected. The strong magnets keep them together, but kids can pull them apart easily.
I showed Rylie the fun Mungi Bands magnetic bands while she was getting ready for dance one Saturday morning. She couldn't wait to try them out, and started pulling them off the table while I was checking them out and taking a couple of photos. Since she was outfitted in her dance gear, she first grabbed the white band with the ballet shoes on it, and connected it to the pink band. She was so excited to get to dance class to show her friends!
Bryce had just gotten out of bed and came out to see what all of the excitement was about. As soon as we were out the door, he connected his "boy bracelets" to a couple of Rylie's bands so he could have a cool shark necklace. These bands aren't just for girls!
Rylie and her friends had a fun time with the two bands she had on during her dance class, but the real fun started when she got back home. She quickly paired up all of the bands to make bracelets, and used the one lone band as a ring.
She then lined them all up to make a necklace, and went even further by connecting her long necklace in the middle to make a figure 8. The possibilities are endless!
Rylie has not put the Mungi Bands down since! As soon as we walk in the door, she gets busy creating her newest piece of jewelry. She has even taken them into the bathroom and made colorful arches around the sink with them. These bands will stick to any metal surface, so the older kids can even decorate their school lockers.
Mungi Bands retail for $6.99 for a pack of three, and they come in small (9 cm long) and large (10 cm long). The suggested age on the package is 8 and up, and I am sure that is for safety reasons, since these do have magnets in them. That said, if you don't have tiny children in the house and you know that your kids will not attempt to remove the magnets, the younger 5 and 6 year olds can have a blast with these too!
Mungi Bands are totally cool, and I know I would have loved these as a child. Rylie definitely gives them her seal of approval. With Christmas right around the corner, these magnetic bands would make great stocking stuffers!
