Okay, I think from just the number of people who already visited my site yesterday that I may be on to something (grin). Desperate parents in search of Googly bands? Look no further! While I can’t get you any Googly bands, I can tell you about a cute contest for kids (and, no I did not score any free Googly bands, both Pragmatic Mom and I were shut out of the Twitter Mom link to get the bands and write about them).
The contest is open to children 5 and up (and everyone under 14 needs parental permission to submit a photo/design – click here for contest rules) to design a new Googly band.
From the website of Googly bands (from Imperial Toys):
Do you have a great idea for a Googly® Band shape? Let us know!
