Wikki Stix, on the other hand, are made of nothing but yarn and non-toxic wax. They don’t break, melt, freeze, dry out or stiffen. There are no batteries to die and there’s nothing messy about them.
You may be wondering why kids would want to play with some wax-covered yarn. It’s a valid question, especially since so many toys nowadays light up, dance or sing. Here’s the surprising thing about Wikki Stix—kids love them! Boys, girls, preschoolers and even older kids will enjoy making all kinds of fun creations. There are thousands of ways to play with them—kids can use them to create simple shapes and letters, but they can also use them to create elaborate three-dimensional shapes or fancy decorations. And no project is permanent, so if your wee ones make a mistake, they can easily take it apart and start all over again.
Just don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to get in on the fun, too.
