Slappie Watch Review

Do you remember slap bands from the 90’s? I used to love them so when I was asked to review the Slappie watch, I couldn’t wait to have some nostalgic fun!
Slappie is a UK based company who you may have seen securing investment on Dragons Den in 2016. The Slappie watch is a funky fun watch suitable for children and adults.

I love the look of the Slappie watch, the design is simple and practical and they come in so many bright fun colours. The watches are available in large and small, we received two of the smaller size to review and they are a great fit on the boys and also sit nicely on my wrist.

The Slappie watch strap is made of durable silicone and feels soft and smooth. Inside the silicone is a steel spring to give the watch its signature slap. The strap remains rigid until you slap it onto your arm when it flexes to fit comfortably around your wrist. I can confirm that the watches have that satisfying slap that you will remember from your childhood!

I love that there are no buckles, to fiddle with, this also means the watch is ideal for children as they can use it independently. At 5 Alex is in the process of learning the time so the fully numbered dial is great for helping him. What is also great is that the watch is easy to wipe clean (perfect for my messy boy) and it is also water resistant upto 30 metres. It really is super practical.
Another really fun feature of the Slappie Watch is that you can mix and match with them. The watch faces can be popped out and used with different straps, there are endless combinations to try!
