Even though they were not his slap bracelets with the inappropriate images that elementary kids received, the inventor of the original Slap Wrap took the initiative to replace them with kid-friendly bracelets instead.

Stuart Anders, who invented the bracelets, felt the defective products should be replaced.

”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,” Anders told NorthEscambia.com.

Anders’ bracelets were expected to arrive at Jay Elementary on Thursday.

Anders also enclosed a note to parents and students explaining how he created the product, the report said.

I’ve been so lucky,” he said. “I’ve been able to make a great life doing work I thoroughly enjoy. I hadn’t planned on being an inventor. It just happened when I followed my instincts and my heart. I wish the same for all of these students.”
