If you’ve never heard of Silly Bandz, you probably don’t know any tween girls. So what are they? They’re standard-size rubber bands shaped like animals, objects, and more. Developed in Japan, they were a niche, semi-highbrow product sold in museum stores as functional office supplies until Robert Croak—whose company produces Livestrong bands—discovered them and began mass-marketing them as an accessory. Even though they retail at less than a quarter apiece, the demand has been huge, with sales reaching into the millions. They’ve even spawned a cottage industry in narrowly targeted copycat versions.
