I go to websites all the time – it’s part of my job – and I have to say, the Wikki Stix site is one of the best! There is so much info, so many fun options – and it’s so easy to see almost everything at once. I’m impressed.
So, what are Wikki Stix and how do they work?
Wikki Stix are an award winning original waxed yarn creativity toy. They’re made of hand-knitting yarn enhanced with a microcrystalline, food-grade non-toxic wax, the kind used in bubble gum and lipstick. They are fun and colorful, soft and pliable, and they stick to each other for 3-D creativity and fun. They are also easy to peel up and re-position so “mistakes” are a breeze to fix. And guess what? There’s no prep, clean-up, or mess involved. Gotta love that!
And Wikki Stix are great for educational purposes and for crafts. They’re also great for home room decoration… seasonal fun… and party time! In addition:
- They appeal equally to boys and girls and span a wide range of ages (from 3 to 103!)
- Wikki Stix are perfect for quiet, independent play or interaction with others.
- They help enhance learning through hands-on kinesthetic involvement.
- Wikkis stimulate the imagination and creativity in everyone.
- And…there is no right or wrong way to play.
- They’re safe! Wikki Stix conform to all US Consumer Safety Standards including ASTM D-4236, CA-Prop 65 and F-963, as well as the European Standard BS5665/EN71.
