There are some pretty neat (and unnecessary) items out there that even parents might have difficulty saying no to.

Slap bracelets have always been a thing, but they've never really been in the school supplies category ... until now. Target has turned some of its slap bracelets, which come in an assortment of colors and styles, into rulers. Hey, maybe a little pizzazz will make kids more apt to measure things!
