What It Is
For more than 20 years, Wikki Stix have been providing kids with mess-free ways to get creative. Wikki Stix are made of a unique, patented wax formula so that they stick to each other and to almost any surface by applying pressure with your fingertips. Kids can bend Wikki Stix and stick them together to create letters, shapes, and whatever kids can imagine. Because Wikki Stix don't melt, stain, freeze, or dry out, they can be re-used and re-shaped over and over.
The Wikki Stix Activity Set offers kids many ways to play with Wikki Stix. It comes with 84 Wikki Stix in 16 colors and a playboard kids can stick the Wikki Stix onto. An eight-page booklet offers ideas and illustrations on how to use the Wikki Stix, as well as a story about Wikki Stix characters Gizzywik and The Morgandoot. The set also includes four shape templates that let kids create a puppy, kitten, triceratops, and stegosaurus by connecting the dots on the templates with Wikki Stix to create the shape. When playtime is over, everything fits inside the included storage bag.
Is It Fun?
The Activity Set is a great starter set. There is no right or wrong way to play with Wikki Stix, which makes the Activity Set great for younger children. Kids can use the playboard to practice letter formation with the Wikki Stix or just smoosh them down and peel them back up. Older kids will easily be able to create more complex objects using the Wikki Stix and their imaginations.
Who It’s For
The Wikki Stix Activity Set is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Wikki Stix are made of hand-knitting yarn enhanced with a microcrystalline food-grade, non-toxic wax, the kind used in bubble gum and lipstick. They do not contain latex, gluten, or peanut or other nut oils or byproducts. Any trace of residue from Wikki Stix can be quickly wiped away with a dry cloth or paper towel. If excess builds up on frequently used surfaces, a dab of lemon extract will remove it.
Wikki Stix can be cut using scissors.
Crayons can also be used on the playboard and will easily wipe off.
