The Stretchy Band Design System Review

My daughter loves silly bands, and she loves to collect them. With this she will be able to choose the shapes she wants, what a great idea.


The Stretchy Band Design System, comes with a peg board, 32 pegs, and 24 specially formulated silly band hoops that can be shaped around the pegs, then you bake it in the oven for 10 minutes at 225 degrees. After they cool your bands are ready for wearing, playing or trading.

Be sure to have an adult help. Never let a child put anything in a hot oven, and do not let children remove the bands by themselves. Adult supervision and participation is required to make the bands. I put my shaplet on a cookie sheet to make it easier to get out of the oven. Remember you must allow the board to cool for 15 minutes before removing the band.

My review:

Ever since our package from Shapelets arrived my daughter has been on me to make them, we'll she finally got her wish tonight. She let out a squeal of delight when I told her we were going to do this! It's a fun process 10 minutes of baking and 15 minutes of cooling and for $9.99 you get everything you need (pegs, bands, and templates) for hours of fun. I asked my daughter what she wanted to make and the first thing she wanted to make was a heart, I thought I did a rather good job at first....then I showed my husband and he pointed out to me it looked more like a Gibson Flying V guitar than a heart....back to the drawing board!
I laid out the template again, this time making sure to round off the heart better and after 10 minutes of baking and 15 minutes of cooling we finally had a heart! Success! It looked more like a heart than a guitar. It was fun, we really enjoyed ourselves and for $9.99 you can't go wrong, when you buy a pack of Silly Bands you get what they want to sell you, when you buy the Shapelets you decide what you want and your choices are limitless.

Buy it: The silly band factory is only $9.99 and available at: They also have refills for sale so you can make more!
