• retro recycling: alex juice tab jewelry

    Nearly every Monday morning, my day begins with a pop. Opening up a new container of O.J.  for my family’s breakfast involves fussing with that pesky juice tab–and some careful manipulation. If I don’t watch out, I’m liable to splash juice all over the kitchen counter, not to mention me! What exactly are these pull tabs good for, anyway? I finally got my answer when I saw the new Juice Tab Jewelry line from ALEX at Toy Fair earlier this month. These otherwise impractical do-dads have been fashioned into the latest crafting accessory for girls ages 6+. You’ll recognize the telltale tween icons in the button holes–from peace signs and hearts, to flowers and stars–and they couldn’t be any easier to put together. Just pull down the tab’s ring, fit it through another juice tab and so on and so on. You’ll have made a colorful bracelet faster than you can say “peace love world.”  Each set comes with 12 tabs and is available in a variety of citrus-inspired collections, like Tropical Zest, Wild & Fruity and Berry Blast. This is not only a great rainy day activity, but an ideal birthday party ice-breaker (the Party Punch set comes with 48 tabs). Besides, we think it’s a much more amusing way to put those O.J. tabs to good use.

    In a Nutshell: We got the juice! Juice Tab Jewelry provides 100% of your kid’s daily serving of playtime.
