Wikki Stix

I wish I had invented these.

We discovered Wikki Stix when we were staying at a hotel in San Diego. They gave them out in the restaurant instead of crayons. My kids (3 and 5 at the time) thought they were WAY more cool than crayons and a coloring place mat.

What a simple idea! They are simply bits of colored string covered with a wax coating thick enough for them to bend and stay in position! Like a candle wick, hence the name I suppose. Kids can make all kinds of things with them.

We use them in restaurants, the car, my purse, anywhere that an instant emergency diversion might be needed. They also make great stocking-stuffers. Santa brought some this past Christmas. Available in primary and neon colors.

    i have a 10yr old daughter and we were wondering are these wikki stix something we can make at home? she was under the impression that we could and we can not find anything online in regards to making them at home – if you would be so kind to let us know by emailing us at jrmoss1@yahoo.com we would sure greatly appreciate it. thank you and have a great day.

  2. A similar product (same??) is Bendaroos. I’m not sure they actually use “magical wax” as they claim (LOL!), but they are fun nonetheless. My wife and I picked up a couple sets for our kids to take on our roadtrip to Utah (we live in Idaho) and they were more than entertained for much of the trip. I couldn’t believe the things they were making. It was fun to watch.
