Zip It, Tweenies!

Remember the good old friendship bracelet?

The one made of thread that you either creatively weaved yourself, or, if you were as creative as me, you just bought from somewhere who had machines that made them … or wished and hoped every night that you had a friend that was way more creative than you and would whip one up and deliver it to you in the school yard, declaring unending friendship?

Before BFFs and the like?

I don’t think I ever had one of those (I had friends who were just like me :)) but we did indulge in a little bit of the Madonna-of-the-mid-eighties-esque black and/or coloured rubber bracelets. I didn’t even like Madonna back then, but those bracelets were pretty cool.

Although the eighties, along with the horrific Madonna-look have recently made a comeback, there is a new thingy out that our tweeny kids can partake in and we can regale them with stories of our childhood and how cool we were, with our rubber bangles and friendship bracelets that got manky after playing several rounds of inter-school netball.

They’re not technically ‘friendship’ type bracelets, but can certainly be given in such a manner. They are also communication tools that tell the world something about you and who you are.

Which means, you (*ahem*
