Kandi Kids (other spellings of Kandi: Kandy, Candy, Candi, Candie ... you get the idea. other spellings for Kids: kidds) are people of any age (but usually not much older than 20 or much younger than 12) who believe thoroughly in P.L.U.R.
(Peace Love Unity Respect (optional second R stands for Responsibility)), usually attend raves (though not all do, especially the younger ones) and are often seen wearing neon colors, sparkles, jewelry made of pony beads or similarly chunky plastic beads, things that sparkle, blink or glow and things made of/related to plushies (stuffed animals, for those of you who forget what plushies are). Kandi Kids usually love techno, but most are happy with any music that they can dance to. At raves, Kandi Kids are the ones who go around talking to everyone, doing their best to make new friends and swapping Kandi
with their new friends. The swap is usually done by holding hands and sliding the bracelet from one person to the other. In their backpacks (usually plushie backpacks) they carry toys, candy, sometimes drugs and any assortment of other things to entertain not only them but also others. Kandi Kids look like they may have roots in the Hirajuku district in Japan, their clothes can be that outlandish. Many see them as druggies, especially considering they were once best known for selling and ingesting E, but in truth many choose to get high off of the music instead of the drugs. A good example of a Kandi Kid is in the movie A Midsummer Nights Rave. The blond girl who talks insanely fast is a Kandi Kid.
And for the record, this is all coming from a Kandi Kid.
