Old school hair accessories are back with Red Bobble


Remember the days of wearing bobbles in your hair? Back in the eighties when I was growing up, these shiny, colourful balls were the equivalent of jewellery for your hair.

These days if I see bobbles in a little girl’s hair it takes me back to days spent sucking on Sunnyboys and doing cartwheels.

Red Bobble has revived this awesome hair trend with its huge range of bobbles in every colour imaginable. I think red is the must-have bobble colour, but I’m in love with the whole rainbow! We first showed you these bobbles back in 2011, but check out all the the fluoro bobbles, bling bobbles and other hair ties decorated with squares, skulls, scrolls, knots, bow ties and bunny ears they’ve added since then.

Girls - bobbles

Louise and Tania, the brains behind Red Bobble, know it’s impossible to stop at just one bobble. That’s why they’ve created piggy-tail packs for $8 or milk cartons containing eight bobbles for $28 and a sixteen pack for $56. Single bobbles cost $4.

And Red Bobble doesn’t just do bobbles. It stocks an amazing range of goodies including brightly coloured bangles, bracelets and necklaces. There’s even watches for boys – just look for the “Boy Germs” tab!

If your daughter is too young for ponytails, there’s no need to miss out on the bobble action. This gorgeous rainbow cloud mobile will reflect natural light in all the shades of the rainbow. At $40 it will brighten up any nursery.

Xmas brush and bauble pack

Another bright buy is the spotty Red Bobble brush. It costs $14.95 and is an excellent accessory to bobbles you may be buying for a present.

Speaking of presents, these bobbles make an excellent add-on to kid’s gifts or even to throw into a gift card for the older kids! Enjoy the nostalgia, I say!
