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 Tons of Fun kit offers kids many ways to play, including making critters and creatures, making a Wikkidoodle, creating funny faces, making 3-D creations, playing games, decorating cans and bags, and designing cards. The kit comes with 96 Wikki Stix and an assortment of wooden shapes, feathers, and pompoms for decorating the different creations. There are four blank face cards so kids can create faces with the Wikki Stix and two greeting cards to decorate. The set also includes fish and butterfly shapes for kids to decorate. Kids can use the squiggles on the two Wikidoodle sheets and their imaginations to turn the squiggle into a work of art using Wikki Stix. The Travel Fun booklet provides ideas and a project sheet.
Kids can also use Wikki Stix to play the Do-Wikki Game. The object of the Do-Wikki Game is to make your own creation with Wikki Stix on the included design boards according to the category on the spinner. Players determine how many points it takes to win and how the points will be awarded. For example, a player might score points for having the most recognizable Wikki Stix creation. The first player to reach the agreed-upon point value wins. The Do-Wikki Game is for two to four players ages 6 and up.
When playtime is over, everything fits inside the sturdy carrying case for easy storage and take-along fun.
