A new Bandz kiosk has opened in Sawgrass Mill Mall in Sunrise, Florida. They are located in Avenue #3 in front of Hot Topic Store and Bose. They have a wide variety of Animal Bracelets in various shapes. They sent me a couple pictures of the City Bandz Kiosk that I wanted to share.

While everyone knows I like creating my own artwork with Animal Bracelets, a Florida elementary school has found another unique use for Animal Bracelets. Tampa Bay Online has a story about a school that is making music with Silly Bandz. The article appears in the Carrollwood News & Tribune section and is called "Student-created instruments include toe-tapping fun."
More news about how popular Animal Bracelets are becoming in the state of Florida. There have already been a couple Silly Bandz articles in the Tampa news. Now, the Animal Bracelets craze has spread to the Broward, Miami-Dade area. The Miami Herald has an article called "Broward, Miami-Dade kids snap up rubber band bracelets."
