 Food and Drink For You, Wikki Stix For Your Kids | Indy Week (March 2012)

Most people go to Tyler’s for the beer. Some go for the food. I go for the Wikki Stix- it can really push the meal experience over the top.  A packet of Wikki Stix will entertain a preschooler long enough for his parents to finish a pint and an appetizer, something I have yet to see happen with a box of crayons and a seek-a-word puzzle.”

 

 

Best Way To Keep The Kids Happy During Dinner | Phoenix New Times 

“Some people have nightmares that they’re back in school, naked, about to fail a test. We have nightmares that we’re out to dinner with our kids. Let’s face it: Fine dining isn’t big among the toddler set. The crayons most restaurants offer are under the table by the time the chairs are pushed in. That’s why we were delighted when the hostess at P.F. Chang’s handed us a package of Wikki Stix on a recent visit.”

 Wikki Stix: Happy Kids, Happy Mommy | White Lilly

“Although it is bit sticky, but kids just love it. I just took out plain drawing block, wrote some alphabet on it and asked Akhtar to follow the line using Wikki Stix. At first, she does not get the idea of twisted the stix. But after few samples that I made, she immediately took the whole stick from my hand and started to twist it to form A, B and so on. Even Afzan (the little sister) could not resist and lend some hand.”

 Twistable, Stickable, Buildable, Playable One-of-a-kind Creatables! | Beanie N Us

“In our household, I always try to look for ways to encourage / invite free play. While one would think play is play but after taking into consideration things such as product safety, “flexibility” etc., it sometimes narrows our choices. When Dumpling and I were invited to review Wikki Stix, I thought ‘why not? Especially when I am trying to look for safe materials / resources where I can leave her to it while I potter around with my chores. Importantly, it must be something which is flexible (pun not intended!) to allow her to imagine and create!”

Fun For All Ages | Weiz Journey

“When I first heard about it, I was skeptical whether K would enjoy it, as it seems to be designed more for younger children. K really enjoys creating stuff out of play-doh and plasticine though, so I thought it’s worth receiving a sample of the Stix to try.

Boy, was I wrong! Not only did I get at least an hour of independent playtime and an unleashing of the wild creativity beast in K, I enjoyed it very much myself too!”

“I had Wikki-Stix for the Tots to play with…TurkeyBoy wasn’t really interested in them, but Tootsie played with them on and off for about four hours!  Amazing!  She rolled each piece up and made them into little “snails” and then decided they made a flower garden…it went on and on.  There were even a number of other passengers that were commenting on how long she’d been playing with them.  We will definitely keep those in our travel bag!”

10 Quiet Travel Toys for Kids |SuiteTrip.com

“Whether you’re jammed into the 25th row of a jetliner, sitting in a nice restaurant, or relaxing in your hotel room, there comes a time on every family vacation when you really need your kids to be quiet. While it’s occasionally fine to let them watch a DVD or play on your iPhone, sometimes it’s good to offer them something a little more low-tech too (as long as it’s quiet, compact, and non-messy). “
