While the Silly Bandz trend might have dropped off in the United States, Silly Bandz continue to be popular around the world. Malysia is the latest country where Silly Bandz have become hot. A recent article in the Malaysia Star calls Silly Bandz the latest kid fad. Just like last year in the U.S., students in Malaysia are now collecting Silly Bandz in the hundreds.
Judging from the article, the Marvel Comics Silly Bandz Pack is really popular. Kids are collecting and trading Silly Bandz shaped like Thor, Hulk, and Captain America. The celebrity Silly Bandz packs such as Justin Bieber Silly Bandz and Kardashian Silly Bandz are also mentioned as being popular in Malaysia.
Also, just like happened in the U.S., the idea of Silly Bandz Swap Days is catching on. One of the major sources for Silly Bandz in Malaysia is Borders, and the Borders Malaysia is having a Silly Bandz Swap Day on Sunday, August 21. Borders is encouraging kids to use their imagination and tell a story with Silly Bandz.
