Wikki Stix - Review and Giveaway (ENDED)


On my way to Lake Tahoe this summer, we stopped at a restaurant in Carson City where Lily got her first kids meal.  In addition to crayons, this restaurant gave her a small package of Wikki Stix to play with.  Since she was content with the crayons, I gave the package to my little brother who made this (pictured below) out of them.  (Less than appropriate, but very creative.)  I wish more restaurants here had Wikki Stix for the kids.  They aren't messy and they wouldn't have to worry about kids drawing all over their tables with their crayons.


 I was thrilled when Wikki Stix offered to let me review their product and sponsor a giveaway for one of my readers!  Wikki Stix sent me a Trick-or-treat pack and a Halloween Fun Kit to review.  Right now they are having a special and if you buy a Trick-or-Treat pack they will send you a Halloween Fun Kit for free! (A $7.50 value.)


 The Trick-or-Treat pack came with 50 individual bags which each have 8 Wikki Stix, and a Halloween themed play sheet.  The trick-or-treaters at our house this year are going to be so excited when they get some Wikki Stix of their own to play with!


We all had a ton of fun one night playing with the Wikki Stix making a whole bunch of things.


Each pack comes with at least 1 template.  You can use the template to make a shape, then peel it off if you want to. Each Wikki Stick is just yarn covered in wax, so they are easy to mold and no mess at all.


 The Wikki Stix stick to windows easily but don't leave any residue when you take them off.  My brother made this spider and web and stuck it to the window.  What a great Halloween decoration!


 The boys really got creative with this project.  (See my brother's Wikki Stix glasses above?)  We put off the rest of our plans for the night to keep playing because we were having so much fun.


 My husband made a motorcycle.  We were pretty impressed with his creativity.


My sister-in-law came over last night and made a digger while we sat and talked.  I'm not even going to post the 3-D cat I tried to make - apparently sculpting things with wax strings isn't one of my gifts in life.


 As I was checking out the site I saw Wikki Stix for school - below is their DNA pack.  How cool would it have been in class had my teacher handed out these low-cost teaching tools and let us make our own double helixes?


Don't these things look awesome?  It's genious.  Do you want to play too? 
Lucky for you, Wikki Stix has generously offered to sponsor a GIVEAWAY for 1 lucky reader!
