Wikki Stix Review, Giveaway & Discount Code!

Wikki Stix are colourful pieces of yarn dipped in food-grade wax. They can be bent into different shapes and can stick to each other and to smooth surfaces. We were sent a few packs of Wikki Stix to review and I let the kids decide if they were fun to play with. We unleashed the Wikki Stix on the kids (or was it the other way around?) and sat back and watched them.

With the Wikki Stix, you are only limited by your imagination. The kids had a lot of fun and they used the Wikki Stix in various ways: form alphabets to spell out a name; create accessories such as rings, bracelets and headbands; make 3D objects like a ball and rainbow which became components for a game; decorate an Easter egg template and ‘draw’ a self-portrait!

I was initially sceptical because I thought the Wikki Stix were just like the fuzzy pipe cleaners/ chenille sticks commonly used for crafts. But the fact that they stick to smooth surfaces really opens up many other possibilities for how they can be used. I also think Wikki Stix are safer than pipe cleaners because the latter have wires inside that tend to poke out! The only thing I didn’t like about the Wikki Stix was the waxy after-feel they left on my fingers but we did a wet wipe test and that solved the problem!

I think Wikki Stix would be great for long road trips or flights: the kids can stick their Wikki Stix creations onto the windows! I now carry a few pieces around with me so I can use them to entertain the kids in the restaurant before our food comes. They are a lot less messy than crayons and a lot more interactive than a smart phone for sure! And since they stick to smooth surfaces, they don’t fall onto the floor so easily and my back appreciates that! I’ll definitely think about putting Wikki Stix as party favours in my next party goody bag.

    i could spice up sessions of teaching my boys the alphabet and numbers, recognising and reading them, then letting them form it themselves. Then after that, we could progress onto using them to teach sight words, and perhaps even learning simple spelling! The possibilities are endless! My email is cmeilim@gmail.com. =) Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing about this product and the giveaway.
    I wouldn’t be able to tell you right now what my son would do with the Wikki Stix because from the looks of it, the Wikki Stix is simply too versatile and I know that his creations will only be limited by his imagination! From balls to his favourite animals (lions & zebras) and maybe makeovers for his existing toys?

    I don’t know what projects we would have yet because i have never touch or feel a wikki stix before. I suppose, we will start with just letting the child free play and expand his ideas from there.

    My son would probably make his favourite animals (eg elephant, monkey, giraffe) out of this wikki stix. :)

    Looks fun! Sean would probably try to make words or numbers or try his hand at making boy things like robots, swords and handphones using the wikki stix!

    My kid loves adding beards to the faces she formed (very strange kid). We will be doing some building skylines. It will be so fun!

    My 2 boys will probably go crazy making all sorts of monsters n creatures! I love the idea of bringing it out for meals or in long car rides. Definitely a great invention.

    These are the bestest things on earth! I use them to work with children who have letter reversals, or are not able to recognise the letters of the alphabet. Would love to stock these up especially cos they keep well and for a long time! :)
