Like Legos, Bunchems are a great way for kids to design whatever their heart desires. Instead of traditional building blocks, kids link the circular Bunchems together, which they can do due to the toy's "hook and eye" design. Unfortunately, it's also this design that is spelling trouble for lots of children. Apparently the Bunchems don't just link easily to one another - they are also very easy to tangle into ones hair. Check out this photos and cringe:
Okay, so maaaaaybe kids shouldn't be putting Bunchems in their hair in the first place (you just know that those Bunchems didn't "accidentally" get into their hair) but it's definitely a failing of the toy's design to have the Bunchems link so aggressively to hair. In response to these hair-disasters, Bunchems actually put out a video that gives a step-by-step guide to removing the toys from ones hair:So next time you're babysitting and the kids break out the Bunchems, maybe make sure that your hair is tucked safely away underneath a hat.
