How do fashion trends start? The fur ball keychain

Suddenly they are everywhere. I actually think I have seen them a few years back but they are back in fashion again. What am I talking about? The fur ball keychains that are usually hanging on handbags. Where did they come from and why are they so popular? Well I have a theory up in my sleeve...
<fabrication>Imagine the most cute thing ever. I bet a lot of you imagined a cute rabbit. Their fur is so soft and one loves to cuddle and play with rabbits and their little tails are like a little ball of fur! But how could you bring your pet with you to work or to a trip. The animal would probably be stressed and a photo is not enough. How could anyone expect fashionistas to cuddle with a piece of paper?Wait a minute... the rabbit is cute and it has a cute tail and the tail is shaped more or less like a ball, which means a ball of fur might feel like having your beloved animal with you all the time! Problem solved!</fabrication>

  1. My theory is that it's derived from the pagan idea of the lucky rabbits foot that used to be carried around. Unlikely but it's an idea

  2. Yes I was going to say lucky rabbit's foot as well. Whatever it is, they are well cute. My daughter buys them, but I secretly quite want one for myself!
