Snap Caps: the Next Big Thing for Tween Girls
November 17, 2008
The simple bottle cap has been elevated to middle-school must-have. At the age of 10, Maddie Bradshaw of Dallas decorated her first bottle cap, then attached it to a necklace cord with a magnet attached. Soon her friends were clamoring for their own.
Now 13 (!), Maddie manages the up-and-coming sensation known as Snap Caps, which lets girls swap out the bottle caps to suit their outfit and mood. Each necklace sells for $14-15, and you can buy bottle caps separately (perfect for decorating the inside of lockers, too). There are 13 collections, including “Diva,” “Candy,” and “Trends.”
