What Do The Colors On Silly Bands Mean?

The colours and different forms have no meaning what so ever they are just silicone bands that can be worn. They can come in the shape of objects and animals, but there is no particular meaning to any of them. However they are being banned in a number of schools due to the rumour that was made online by some students that certain colours can mean different sexual orientations, or that they can mean that certain sexual acts have be done comparing on what colours that are worn. However these are just rumours made up by a number of high school children. And the banning of silly bands in a number of schools is due to the trouble that these rumours have caused.

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 retail in packages with themes like princesses or animals. A pack of 24 sells for about $5 and packets of 12 for about $2.50. Similar shaped silicone bands are also available under other brand names from a variety of companies.

On a wrist, they function like a regular bracelet, and when taken off they revert to their original shape. They are often worn many at a time and are traded like other collectibles. They can also be used for their original intent as a regular rubber band.

The original shaped silicone rubber bands were created in 2002 by the Japanese design team Passkey Design, Yumiko Ohashi and Masonar Haneda. They made the bands in cute animal shapes to encourage sustainability by discouraging people from treating the rubber bands as disposable. Sold under the brand name Animal Rubber Bands, they won the Best Design award at the 2003 Japanese National Competition. These bands were not widely distributed in the United States, but in 2005 they were local hits in Guilford, Connecticut and at the Design Store at the New York City Museum of Modern Art.

Robert Croak, owner of Toledo, Ohio-based BCP Imports, known for distributing the Livestrong wristbands, encountered the bands on a business trip and decided to re-purpose them as a toy by making them larger and thicker, and marketing them as a kids' fashion accessory.

I'm twelve and EVERYONE at my school wears them, even teachers! I do believe they each have their own meaning. For an example: Heart means love.   I also think some mean what type of animals you like or what describes you. They DO NOT mean s**. Silly bandz are just bracelets that are in shape of realistic items or animals. They were created and designed by a 7year old. I have 165 silly bandz. My friend has 875. And if some people believe they have meanings like the   black jaguar meaning death, they are COMPLETE fools! That is absolutely ridiculous!

I hear they do mean sexual favors. Sad  thing is most young kids wear them for fun but why wear them and some older, kid thinks blue means oral and tries it on a innocent child

I'm sure for MOST kids they mean nothing. However, some high school kids have given them a meaning and instead of denying this fact I think it's good teachers and parents are aware of the possibility of some "sexual" code.

Pretty much every color has something to do with sex but as long as you don't break one you will be fine

I've heard Silly bands are bad but I don't get why. Tons of my friends have a bunch of them and I think its fun to trade them. The teachers and parents doesn't care and doesn't know anything about them being "sexual codes" so why should we worry about them?

Silly bands do not mean anything . They just symbolize objects and animals. They also are very well known to kids. All the colors express your brightness and emotions.So all schools should allow kids to wear silly bands.They are just bracelets that don't cost much, like about two dollars a pack.They are made of rubber like rubber bands I mean what can they possibly mean.
The point I am trying to make is that silly bands don't mean anything.

At my school they don't mean anything. We just trade them and play with them. People think they have to do with sex but they don't. The sex bracelets were a stupid fad like two years ago. Silly Bandz are harmless. Kids of all ages are wearing them. Heck, even my teachers wear them!

Originally silly bands were just entertaining, you could relate yourself with a penguin, I for instance have a tie dye magic wand--superpowers :D haha. I am hearing the new buzz throughout my pears though, because these bands are starting to break after awhile. What happens when they break? What color is it? It means the same thing it meant with those bracelets we wore in middle school! Soo they don't have to mean anything. It's like reading your horoscope, just for laughs. Maybe it could be a nice excuse to flirt ;)

Silly bandz and jelly bracelets mean nothing. The only ones who believes they do are sluts and Horney teen boys. Honestly if you give someone oral sex for breaking your bracelet then you have serious issues. Me 24 and my daughter 4 both wear them and they're just fun and cute.

Since when did everything to start referring to sex? Seriously...they're bracelets and odd, funny shapes, that's all! I'm 25 and I wear them b/c I think they're fun, not b/c I can do certain "sexual things". People are so ridiculous, it's sickening.

They don't have to mean anything to 90% of the child who is wearing it but the fact that kids and parents are so lax about taking up every fad they see shows just how shallow and unimaginative young people are. Silly monkey see, silly monkey do.

I need people who answer these questions to do their research before giving their answers, and smugly at that. I have no ideas what each color means but they all mean something. This was not established by the manufacturer but by youth. Each color band represents something you are willing to do or have done sexually, sorta like in the episode of the George Lopez show. I don't agree with these practices or promote them, but as an older generation you must be informed. ~Moni

The news said that silly bands are being ripped off and/or taken off and whatever that color means that they ripped/taken off, the person who had the silly band before has to do what that color means. But really they're just fun little animal/object bracelets that kids think are cool. Coming from high schoolers, you could see why the rumor is spreading around. But this is crazy. 5 year olds wear these. Sure when you get in high school or 7th or 8th grade you might think differently. But for right now I think we should just keep the limit to trading and playing with them. The "sexual" meanings are stupid. I don't think they should be banned from schools. I just think that people you do that should get detention. It's very wrong and dangerous to have this rumor.

Oh dear lord. There is a check spelling button for a purpose!
Silly bandz have no meaning, they are just one of the ordinary fads which
come and go.
For example, last year the popular fad was converse all star shoes, they really didn't mean anything. And now it's object/animal shaped rubber bands.
I'll give 'em a year or two of popularity. :P

I am in the 8th grade and recently took a poll with both middle and high school students on whether or not silly bands have "sexual meanings".  Results showed that 47.6% of middle school students thought yes, while high school students was a  shocking 83.69%. The meanings are as follows:
Yellow-hug
pink-hicky
orange-kiss meanings sex
purple-kiss same sex
red-lap dance
green-oral sex on opposite sex
blue-oral sex on same sex
black-regular sex
white-flash "what they have"
clear-whatever snapper wants
    Now I must remind you that both participants must be willing and OF LEGAL AGE. So don't stress it TOO much.
