Thank you for this. My husband and I want to go to ACL next year and we're contemplating bringing the kids…we'll see!
Hello- thanks for your recommendations! I'm looking for a pair of Baby Bandz to use for my 5 month old this evening at a basketball game. I'm out of time to order from Amazon as the game is this evening and I can't find anyone who sells them in Austin. Any advice where I could get a pair today?
Hello Amanda, I am sorry I did not get your message sooner. I do not know of any retailers that sell Baby Bands in Austin. I will respond to this message if I do. Hope you have a great time at the basketball game with your baby!
