Mungi Bands Collect & Connect
You know how little girls LOVE to collect and share things with their friends! I have a great, new, fun way for them to share! They are called Mungi Bands! And my daughter and her friends had so much fun playing with them. Mungi Bands are silicone bands with magnets at each end so you can swap them out, switch them around, and trade them with friends! You can make bracelets, ankle bracelets, and even necklaces by attaching several together. Use your imagination and be creative!
The small Mungi Bands are 3.5 inches and two combine for a 7 inch wrist. The large Mungi Bands are 4 inches and two placed together will create an 8 inch wrist. For a medium size wrist you just use one small and one large.
Mungi Bands were created by a dad and can be purchased for $6.99. They are designed for ages 8 and up. 10 new fall designs have just been released. They won the Sterling Fun Award from Tillywig Awards.
My daughter started out wearing hers as a bracelet and then designed a necklace. When she went over to play with some of her friends they quickly asked if they could play with them too! After watching them designing and redesigning I have decided this is a perfect gift.
From Chad Anger:
The concept behind Mungi Bands came from Daddy's little girls. As dad-inventor Chad Anger explains, "last year after buying yet another pack of wrist bands for my three daughters, I noticed that they always wanted the bands that expressed their interests. But," he laughs, "the only time the bands were expressing anything, they were off of their wrist and on the counter or floor. This got my wheels turning about how we could make bands fun and encourage trading. We explored some ideas, but it wasn't until we cut some jelly bands and glued magnets on the end that the real fun began!"
"The girls and I began looking at different designs, and we had a few prototypes made locally. Once I received the first prototypes I knew the girls were going to love it, and they did! The more people we shared them with, the more people asked where they could buy some. We even had kids try to buy the prototypes with their allowance! This is when we knew that we had a cool idea on our hands."
Make sure you check out Mungi Bands on Facebook and Twitter. If you purchase some of your own, be sure to share some pics on their website.
We received the Dancing Princess, 50s Pink and the Board, Butterflies and Best Friends. My daughter's favorite color is pink, so you can see why we chose these ones!
One neighbor will receive their choice of (3) Mungi Bands. US only! What do you think neighbors? Are these going to make it on your gift list?
