More than 20 million Animal Rubber Bands have been sold throughout the world since their introduction in 2002. And now we are proud to announce the addition of the "Farm" series. Based on a farm theme, this series includes 7 new animals: a horse and foal, a sheep and lamb, a cow and calf, plus an animal that could either be a sheepdog or a wolf, depending on your mood.  

The animal rubber band was announced for the first time in "NYGF/accent on design" held in New York in summer of 2002. In a memorable beginning an order was placed from New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).  After its release in Japan, it was announced by "100%Design" of London, "Ambiente" of Frankfurt, "Maison & Objet" of Paris and in the main exhibitions internationally.

The animal rubber band is not merely a rubber band with a cute form. "Super high tensile silicone" with a strength of more than 3 times of general silicone.  

This silicone is a new material made in collaboration with Japanese material makers, developers and producers.   Because of its durability, the animal rubber band lasts for a much longer time compared to ordinary rubber bands and can be reused many times.  

Furthermore it has a the heat-resistant temperature of 190 degrees Celsius and can be used in the microwave oven and even withstand boiling water. It also has a cold-resistant temperature of -40 degrees Celsius, which makes it able to withstand use in the refrigerator or freezer for extended periods of time.  

In addition to that, the animal rubber band silicone is non-toxic and is harmless to the human body if it were to be mistakenly placed in the mouth or ingested.

- Usage Notes -
(please keep the animals together as a set)

when you work for a long time, let them rest
and sleep.

Collect a bunch of animal friends and lets play!

 ilst 02

Do not pull further than the limit will allow as they could break.

Even if it gets tangled, it will be good as new with a few tugs.

Designer Profile:

Designer Comment : 

“Rubber bands are useful, but they tend to be disposable. Why can't someone design rubber bands that people would become attached to and want to use for a longer period of time? That’s the concept behind these Animal Rubber Bands. When people remove one of these rubber bands, they'll be pleasantly surprised to see that it’s in the shape of an animal! They'll be sure to save such a unusual and surprising item!”
