I have an upcoming trip this Fall and we are somewhat of a large group. I managed to buy some for my group in eBay for $10-15 per pack of 4. I want to buy more for the other people in our party. Does the parks still sell these knickknacks? I would not be heart broken if they don’t, I have our room set. I’ll be delighted if I can get some for the rest of the party.
TIA!

Pre-COVID, they were in the gift shops on the wall next to the Magic Bands. Resort gift shops, theme park gift shops. I haven't been since the pandemic started, so I can't tell you what the current situation is.

Before you buy more, have you tried wearing a Magic Band which has a Bandit on it? I never have. The Magic Bands themselves are not particularly comfortable because they are kind of big and the material doesn't feel very flexible on your wrist. I would think that adding a Bandit would make it even less comfortable.

I have tried fitting them. You are pretty right on the dot about it not being the most comfortable. I tried swinging my arms and mimic brisk walking and bumping into things. It’s not made of silicone like the Apple Watch. You can definitely feel the plastic band on your arm. The bandits’ pin does not go past the hole where I can feel it BUT if you are super active and preoccupied, you will not feel it popping off. Poof goes your $3 charm. Lol.
I will keep an eye on them at the shops, if ever.

We found so many band-its on the ground during our last trip. I would not trust these unless there is a better way to secure them. We have used decals/temporary tattoos and stick on jewels to decorate our magic bands in the past.

Do not waste your money! I bought some during our trip in 2019 and EVERY ONE OF THEM fell off (and was lost) within a day of putting it on. Disney has got to figure out a way to better secure these.
