Do your children have a lot of those popular silly shaped bands just lying around? Or maybe your like me and have quite a collection of them for yourself….but either way I’m sure we all have the same problem on where to store our silly bands when we or our children are not wearing them right? Well I was recently introduced to an awesome little company Oh Snap Cases that have created the perfect storage solution for all your loose silly bands!
About Oh Snap Cases (taken from website):
New York, NY and Neptune, NJ, August 24, 2010 – Oh Snap! Cases launched the first ever official animal/silicone band holder that snaps and holds up to 300 bandz inside and out! It is available in 15 styles and colors with popular themes like Gymnastics, Skateboarding, Zebra, Soccer, Princess, and Pirate.
Oh Snap! Cases are kid-sized cases with fun-zany-colored loops attached that “snap!” onto your backpack, lunchbox, belt, wrist, purse, sports bag, or notebook. They were created based on research conducted over the past 6 months concluding that kids a) go crazy for the bandz and b) have no where to keep them safe. It is the first of its kind to fit up to 300 silly bands inside and out. And apparently the kids are going just as “crazy” for the cases as they are for the bands.
“We have orders coming in where parents are ordering every style because they tell us their kids HAVE TO collect them all”, says Jamie Hewitson, Senior Product Developer for OhSnap Cases. “The most popular themes are Cheer Snap (cheerleading theme) and Fishy Snap (princess fish theme) right now. And this is exactly why we offer 15 styles at only 7.99 each, because kids know what they want but also because we want them to be affordable for parents, too. We are also looking into licensing opportunities with some ever popular big screen names that we are sure are going to blow away anything we’ve offered so far, but we’re not telling who!”
These cases are perfect for kid’s book bags and lunchboxes, but that’s not where the “usefulness” stops either. Moms are snapping them onto their purses during their kids sporting events, and they have even been spotted hooked to beach chairs.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer a product that excited kids and moms alike”, says Natalia Rybka, the mastermind behind the “snap” feature on the case. We like that kids want to keep their bandz in something cool, but we also like that moms are thrilled that they aren’t all over the house anymore. This way everyone is happy.
OhSnap! Cases are offered on their online store at http://ohsnapcases.com/.

I was given the opportunity to choose an Oh Snap Case to review and I have to say that making the chose was not an easy one because they offer so many cute and stylish cases but I finally made my decision on the RockStar Snap Case and once it arrived, fairly quickly I may add. Once it arrived I immediately started gathering up all of my silly bands and putting them in my new carrying case!! I was simply amazed at how many silly bands this case will hold. I’ve been collecting them now for quite some time, so I have several, I’m not sure exactly how many between “Bug” and I but I know the count is way up there. According to the Oh Snap Case website it says that they will hold up to 300 silly bands and I have absolutely no doubt about that!
I love that I can now carry all of our silly bands with us in one simple little case so that it is less likely that I loose them! I love that I can clip this case on my purse, diaper bag, over night bag and well pretty much everywhere that you can fit the clip on so it’s very convenient and keeps my silly band well within reach when either “Bug” or I want to wear our silly bands!
Not only are these cases super cute and make taking your silly bands with you super easy and keeps them all in one place so they are easy to find I have also found that they make taking your ponytail holders to the gym with you very easy as well….so really the possibility of what you can carry with these cases are endless depending on your imagination, and with the number of unique styles they offer you can have a different case for each outfit or for different collections.
I know I love my Oh Snap Case so much that I’m seriously thinking about getting my little sister and little cousin one each to hold their silly bands because they are more of a collector than I am and I know they could really use one or a couple :0)!!! I totally recommend Oh Snap Cases to anyone looking to keep their silly bands in one spot and make it easier to take them along with you! I think that any tween or teen who loves silly bands would love to have one of these cases to keep them in.
