New toy made in Michigan makes it to The View

DETROIT — One of the hottest toys is made in Detroit and was recently showcased on ABC's morning show "The View."

The Choose Friendship bracelet company is a toy business in Detroit. It got it's start when two girls interrupted their grandpa's football game and asked him to help them make friendship bracelets.

Their grandpa chose friendship over football.

Next thing you know, he created the toy for his kids.

"We were pretty much all screaming with excitement," said Julie Karwowicz, from the Choose Friendship company. "Our product was on The View. We were very excited."

The family presented it at a toy fair four years ago, and it took off. Now, the family business is offering more toys.
