Slap Bracelets

They were popular when I was in elementary school and now they are popular here. I have seen several students wearing them. Today, I had to confiscate seven of them (one girl had five), because it is basically just a toy. The students just keep taking them off and slapping themselves with them to put them back on. The picture is an example of what slap bracelets look like and how they are worn.

Ahh, that takes me back to my childhood! I can see how those would be very disruptive in a classroom!

I had those... but they always managed to hurt me. The ends would come out and cut me.

That's why (I think) they went out of fashion in the states -- liability due to sharp metal injuring kids. I sort of liked them.
