Whatever the newest young people fad is, there are always horror stories cautioning parents about it. They're usually always false or exaggerated, like the Pokémon cartoon being harmful, or Harry Potter leading kids to become real witches and wizards.
In August 2010, a chain e-mail went out warning people of the dangers of SillyBanz. It showed a picture of a kid being lacerated by using SillyBandz for a long period of time. While this might have usually been dismissed as fake, it was actually true!
A 4-year-old boy from New York was taken to the doctor because his dad had found some deep cuts from all the SillyBands he had on his arm. The doctor even found some EMBEDDED on his skin! The picture is kinda nasty so we didn't want to post it on the main page, but you can head over to the source to check it out.
