TKO Slappers

This is too cool for words! Slap bracelets are back, this time in the form of colorful watches by TKO Orlogi and Henri Bendel.

I am way more excited about this than any grown woman should be. Slap bracelets were a mainstay of my childhood, my favorite being a neon orange one with smiley faces that my parents bought me at the Topsfield Fair. This was all before braceletgate of the early '90s, of course, when a couple of stupid kids managed to injure themselves and ruined it for the rest of us.

The silicone bands, capsules and faces of the TKO Slappers are all interchangeable, and you can purchase accessories packs to boost your color options. At $50 a pop, these watches may be pricier than the slap bracelets of yore, but I think I'd pay double just to bring this trend back!


  1. Oh I need one of these!! I had so many slap bracelets! Love this.....just a thought...they should make fancy leather ones with Swarovski crystals and studs.....and chains....there I go again getting ahead of myself! lol

  4. I saw this in the daily candy email this morning and flipped my lid! I loved slap bracelets as a kid. I'm not so sure about paying $50 for this, but if someone got me these as a gift - I'd be pumped!!

  5. Oh this is amazing! I love this post and your Blog.
