Has your tween asked you for silicone band bracelets only to find that they are all sized for adults? Mine has repeatedly, so he was super-excited to try out Mungi Bands, which are magnetic silicone bracelets that allow your child to mix and match the two halves. They come in themed 3-packs for both boys and girls. My son chose the Rock Star, Shark Attack, and Hot Boards styles to try out. Mungi Bands, which are recommended for children ages 8 and up, actually come in two sizes . . . Small and Large. I went with the smaller size for my 8-1/2 year old son, who has a lean build. It turned out to be the perfect choice. The bracelets do not fall off his wrist like standard silicone bracelets, but they also give him room to grow.

Below are some examples of our son's favorite combinations. I do want to point out that the magnets are extremely strong. If your child wants to layer the bracelets, you should be prepared for them to stick together at the seams. Personally, I think it would work out better to wear one per wrist and then layer it with other types of bracelets.
Because our son loves to play with magnets, he could not resist trying to make a necklace, rings, and even art with his Mungi Bands . . .
I would love to see more styles like the black Mungi Band that says "Rock Star" on it. Although the shaped designs are fun, I think that children would also like bracelets that look like "grown up" silicone bracelets that have straight edges with just text on them.
