From jelly shoes and butterfly clips to Tamagotchis and Pogs, the 90’s produced some very memorable trends but none of those were quite as entertaining (and potentially dangerous) as the slap bracelet. Also called the snap bracelet, these plastic bracelets were a popular fad among children and teens of the late 80’s and early 90’s.
What was not to love? Not only did they come in just about every color and design you could imagine, they were also a great distraction in class and a perfect way to annoy your friends. It was a sad, sad day when teachers started banning slap bracelets claiming they were dangerous after one student removed the bracelets covering and ended up with a nasty cut on her wrist. Let’s be honest – they really just got tired of us all snapping and re-snapping them over and over in class. The irony? The slap bracelet was actually invented by a teacher. Wooppss!
Here at Case-Mate we miss the slap bracelet so we are here to bring it back in our own way. Check out our Snap Case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4/4S and reminisce about one of our childhood’s most awesome pop culture trends.
