Shelf kids was created on January 21st, 2009 around 1pm. It was created through a chat room/webcam site called stickam. Four out of five members of the band Cobra Starship went to a Cabin in PA to write songs for their next album. They decided to set up a webcam so fans could watch this process and ask them questions. It was 24/7 for four days. They had the webcam set up on top of a shelf overlooking the table (for most of the time). Somebody in the chatroom mentioned that we were like "flies on a wall" then somebody said "flies on a shelf". Then shelf kids was created. Usually referred to as Shelfies. They also crashed a Metro Station chat/webcam later on, they were the first ones to arrive in the chat and there were so many Shelf Kids that Metro Station had to shut their chat down.
Shelf Kids FANGS UP.
Shelf Kids FTW!!!!
