Hey does anybody remember from the 80's these bracelets that appeared to be flat and rigid like a ruler and you slap them on your wrist and they would make a bracelet form on ur wrist, do they still exist? :P

      They were called slap bracelets, and were all over the place around the late 80's early 90's, something like that. They are still available through party stores like Oriental trading company.

        I remember those, liked them but they seemed to break easy, exposing the metal inside. I remember hearing they went off the general market because they weren't safe.

          I used to have some of those, like a neon green and black checkered one, and hot pink, haha. Is it just me or did those things like seriously hurt sometimes?

              Oh yeah I remember those. THey used to sell them at my school during recess. But then there was the story that some girl cut her wrists when the metal tore throught the fabric so they stopped selling them.

                  Truth is I never saw the inside of those bracelettes. It was just a story that I believed was true.

                        You can also buy them at stores like "Claires" , "Delias", "The Icing" (all owned by the same company). They're usually in malls and have stuff for pre-teens & teenagers. They're usually in the .99 cent bins up front :roll:

                            They were slap bracelets. I hated em. They hurt like hell when you slapped em hard to get them to curl around your wrist. Plus they broke all the time! :shock:

                              I first saw them when I was 10, about the same time those bubble neclaces came out. I remember giving slap braclets as favors at my party. Now kids all wear the LIVESTRONG knockoffs.

                                I have two Tommy Hilfiger ones that came with a TH cosmetics promotion about 6 years ago.
