How Are Silly Bands Made?

Silly Bandz are rubber bands made of silicone rubber formed into shapes including animals, objects, numbers, and letters. They are distributed by BCP Imports and are normally worn as bracelets.

Silly Bandz are made from 100% medical grade silicone and die, molded into many different fun shapes. These rubber bands will then return to their original shape when you take them off the item they're holding, which is usually or often a wrist. There are many different types of silly bands to choose from which will suit every personality and interest
They come in packs of 24 assorted colors and shapes and they are designed to be collected and traded between friends. The product is also expanding to include Silly Necklaces or the Silly Bandz Caribinerz to hold you Silly Bandz. There are even Silly Bandz Buttons and Silly Bandz Rings. Silly Bandz can be bought in supermarkets and toy stores. Call 1-800-921-8661 to buy Silly Bandz Bracelets.

There are many misconceptions and rumours regarding Silly Bandz. They are not made out of recycled condoms or any other recycled product. You cannot fix a broken band by lighting it on fire and melting it and it is definitely not recommended to have your Silly Bandz anywhere near fire. If a Silly Band breaks, it will not cause a kitten to cry and your arm will not fall off if you wear too many Silly Bandz. It is possible that too many Silly Bandz worn too tight could cut off the circulation to your arm but if you feel any discomfort at all, you should remove the Silly Bandz immediately.

Well I heard that silly bandz are made out of condums and could give you skin cancer . I don't know if you go with my opinion cause this is what I think . They say this cause they r jeoules cause you got silly bandz and they don't . But I strill thing they made out of condumes cause when you buy them and take them out of the bag they stink pluse if it could give you skin cancer ever1 would have it so I don't think it could give you skin cancer . I don't care if you think what I say is garbag

Honestly everyone. They are NOT made out of used condoms. Think about it. How are they going to get all the used condoms in the first place?! They're going to say to residents: "Give me your used condom so that I can melt it into Silly Bandz"? Honestly. It's rediculous!!!

First thing first they r made from reclycled baloon condoms and etc. Wich r found in the floor wich could cause hpv hiv and other symptoms like skin cancer and all this is cleaned but the diseases can not be cleaned and then they melt it and make them into the bandz you wear today try not to put it in your mouth like little kids and if you don't believe me that is not my problem go ahead have this diseases mentioned if I was you I would stop using them I know this because my family works in this company

Seriously some of you guys think that silly bandz are made out of recyled condems.

They are not made from recyled condems because they are going to know that little kids like at the age of 5-7 are going to put the silly bandz in their mouths

Also they would nawt have used recyled condems because they would have just ordered it because they are a big company

And they would not have been able to sell silly bandz if they were made out of recyled condems because the government would not have approve of them

Last the government would not have let them sold the silly bandz because it can cause all diffrent types of disseises and the government would have to pay more money to try to find cures for the new disseised

Obviously there are millions of people who work for the silly bandz corporation running around the country pulling used condoms out of trash cans everywhere, cleaning them out, and melting them down to recreate small multicolored animal shaped wristbands for small children to collect. Government approved of course.

I know that they are made out of any sort of recycled cylicone as baloons,candoms, and other sorts of silicone. They are cleaned and melted into a machine that shapes them as silly bands then they are sold I looked it up and I know every little steps. So don't worry its good for the enviroment because the ballons are pick up from the ocean wen little kids let them fly and candoms and other sorts of household silycone are pickt up in the garbage by the recyling process. Here is the reall answer all you liars

Use your common sense people they obviously won't be made out of condoms, but even if they where it wouldn't really matter because the rubber is melted down and really sanitized and stuff.

Oh my god... I want to scream at all you idiots. Most Condoms are made out of latex or something. Silly bands are made out of silicone. Simply said, they are not made out of used condoms. The only way to get skin cancer from them was if you were allergic to silicone or something, other then that... Don't you think that they would be illegal if they were made out of used condoms and they gave skin cancer? Think straight people. I'm young and whatnot but this is just plain stupid. And the only reason I know condoms are made out of latex and stuff was since I looked it up on the internet. I don't care if you believe me or not but this is just plain retarded. >.>;;

Okay, first of all, I am rather hard pressed to believe they're made of used condoms, but in the event they were, they'd be melted and all, and probably sanitized, too.
Granted, even knowing they'd be sanitized and all people would still probably drop them immediately in the event they were made of used condoms. Even if we know it's clean, humans are hard pressed to use something knowing it came from something disgusting.
AND, for those of you saying how "childish" this rumor is, have you ever realized how childish you people LOOK wearing them? I mean, I don't care if people like them or not, it's a fad, I expect you to like them. I myself am not into fads. But, my point stands, you complain the rumors are childish, well, childish rumors go along with a childish fad.

All of you here who are saying silly bands are made out of used condoms are just plain stupid. So you're saying that the factory workers just go out every day of their lives and look for a used condom in a garbage can? Are you kidding me? They are simply made out of silicone. Mhmm, I don't think I've ever heard of a silicone condom. So all of you stupid people who take the time to just listen to dumb rumors about what they're made of and that they give you diseases you guys need to understand the difference between fact and reason rather than rumors & opinions. - Thank You.

Okay, people are really immature. Silly bandz are definately not made of used condoms. They don't have a place to recycle them, that would be wrong. Because of all the diseases and whatnot. Silly Bandz are made of silicone, which is a type of rubber. They melt it then put a metal shape like a cookie cutter in it and add food coloring, then they let it dry. That is the correct way of how they make silly bandz! :)
