Review: Wikki Stix

We have been given a sample of Wikki Stix mini play pack for review and we LOVE it.



Such a simple invention that provides hours of fun, creativity and learning. Okay, seriously, we didn't play for hours at a stretch but it was long enough for me to think. "Yeah, this one's a keeper"

Of course, nothing comes between Tiger and his ABCs, so that was the first thing he wanted to create. He could twist nicely but he wasn't able to shape them into the letters yet. He kept saying, "Mama, you make"
He was pretty happy just to arrange the letters.

When I asked, "What else can you make?"
He created a square and sang his Shape Song

The happy boy.
I asked for a happy, dashing smile and he gave me this.

The pack came with a small leaflet with ideas and a connect the dot picture.
We placed the Wikki Stix on the paper together to form a bell.
Then, he wanted colour.

I love open-ended products as it encourages imagination. Wikki Stix takes it a step further by being non-toxic, stickable and reusable. Most importantly, it is CLEAN so there is no need for massive clean up after play!

It is recommended for children above 3 years old but I read in a teacher's forum that it is being used even in high schools! How cool is using Wikki Stix to trace rivers and borders on the map for Geography lessons?

So, what exactly is Wikki Stix?

A piece of Wikki Stix is actually a yarn dipped into non-toxic wax. So, you can pretty much create anything that strikes your fancy. For more elaborate creations, we will probably need more than eight Wikki Stixs.
Now that they are available on our shores, we can always add more to our collection.
