Sun Prairie Inventor To Replace X-Rated Bracelets

Sun Prairie Inventor To Replace X-Rated Bracelets

A local inventor is sending more than 200 original Slap Wraps bracelets to a Florida elementary school after X-rated knockoffs were handed out last month during a school fundraiser.

"As the original inventor of the Slap Wraps toy and as a former school teacher, I felt compelled to step in and make right the situation," said Stuart Anders of Sun Prairie.

Anders said when he heard that a knockoff company had sold more than 100 bracelets with pictures of naked women underneath the cloth portion of the bracelets, he felt compelled to something.

“I’m thrilled they are still popular, but very disappointed that the kids at Jay Elementary (of Tallahassee, Fla.) received such a poor example of this toy. It’s just one of the many knockoff products that are available for sale." Anders said.

He said has been forced to deal with companies producing low-quality versions of his product since they first went on sale in June of 1990.
