Promotional Silicone Bracelets

PROMOTIONAL BRACELETS

Promotional silicone bracelets are a popular item in the marketing arena and beyond. On the surface, those flexible bands might seem like mere jewelry, but marketers know that they're so much more! With more than 80 million wristbands sold for one cause alone, it's clear that the simple wristbands are a powerhouse promotional product.


Looks Can Be Deceiving
It's a fact of life – looks can be deceiving. Though they're fashionable and fun, promotional silicone bracelets are a mighty marketing tool. And while our bracelets are perfectly safe, here are some predators that might not be – despite their friendly appearance. May they remind you that things aren't always what they seem.


Moose
We imagine them wearing crocheted Christmas scarves, their sleek brown coats dusted with fluffy white snow in a winter scene. Moose are synonymous with the holiday season.

Festive sweaters bear their faces, their black eyes beaming. In addition to the jolly modern moose, some of us remember that endearing and docile dope of a moose Bullwinkle from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The animated series aired in the early 1960s, but reruns of the show played for years following.

 

Bullwinkle was surely one of a kind. Moose are among the most dangerous frequently encountered animals in the world. And while they don't typically bother humans, a moose that is disturbed is likely to respond by charging aggressively. Another frightening fact -- Moose attacks are more common than bear attacks.


Leopard seal
Who doesn't adore seals – the sweet sea creatures so many stuffed toys are modeled after? The leopard seal is a stunning spotted variety, bearing a beautiful big-cat pattern on its body. According to National Geographic, the seal is sometimes called the sea leopard, and the resemblance is more than skin deep. They're the most formidable and terrifyingly savage hunters who consume smaller seals, birds, fish and penguins, using their powerful jaws and sharp teeth to puncture their prey.


Primates
Michael Jackson had Bubbles, a treasured chimp and Jacko's hairy '80s sidekick that accompanied him to movie premieres, recording sessions and celebrations. But before Bubbles floated on the scene, we had Koko the gorilla and the classic cartoon Grape Ape to admire.


Born in 1971 in San Francisco, Koko was an intelligent female gorilla who mastered more than 2,000 American Sign Language words and communicated with humans. Grape Ape was a classic cartoon character known for his punchy purple color and odd mode of transport – the roof of a significantly smaller yellow car.


Other memorable primates include Clyde from the Clint Eastwood film Every Which Way But Loose, Curious George, the beloved children's story book character, and Joe of the '80s Disney film Mighty Joe Young.


The above primates were fun and endearing creatures. In truth, primates are known to carry diseases and maul humans when they feel threatened.


Polar Bears
Kids all over the world share their beds with cuddly stuffed bears – some adults do the same. Polar bears appear to be gentle creatures, clutching Cokes and sleeping sweetly on slick patches of ice. The polar bear is the largest carnivore in North America. They weigh as much as 1,500 pounds and brutally attack between 20 and 90 people annually.


These are just a few examples of the many deceptively docile creatures in the world, proving that sometimes we underestimate the powerful among us. The same can be said of promotional silicone bracelets. They're charming bands that cut through the marketing competition. Watch out!
