12 hot toys under $25 for the holidays
Manufacturer: BCP Imports LLC
Ages: 5 and up
You've probably seen these colorful, rubbery bracelets adorning the wrists of tweens and teens, and Gottlieb says they're likely to be popular through the holiday shopping season. If you've never seen them, Silly Bandz look like colorful silicone bracelets until they're taken off. Then they take on the outline of an animal, object or character.
Priced low enough to make a great stocking stuffer, Silly Bandz probably won't be nearly as popular a year from now, but they'll provide some cheap fun for kids in the meantime, says Gottlieb.
Be sure to check with your administrator before wearing them to school. They have been banned by some districts.
