6. Silly Bandz
Company: Passkey Design/BCP Imports
"Let's me get this straight: it's a bracelet that is in a shape, but when you wear it, you can't see that shape? I'll take all of the Silly Bandz you have!" If a businessman had made a deal like this in 2008, the dude would have been able to retire by early 2009, as these easily lost and broken bracelets swept the nation's classrooms by storm.
They also, apparently caused some serious injury by cutting off circulation to curious kids' upper-arms. Our favorite Silly Bandz pack of all time has to be the "Kardashian Glam Shapes," a further testament to the Kardashian family's ability to sexualize anything that stands for innocence and purity in this cold world.
