Create Fun Summer Memories with Wikki Stix!

Fun Summer Memories with Wikki Stix!

If you’ve come home from the beach (or camping trip) with a box of rocks or seashells… what now?  Decorate them with Wikki Stix for lasting summer memories!


Wikki Stix are an American-made craft toy made in the USA for more than 29 years.  Made of wax and yarn, Wikki Stix stick to all smooth surfaces with just fingertip pressure… no paste, no glue, no mess! 

Just press them into position… and if you don’t like what you see, peel them up and reposition them.  Mistake-free fun that’s clean and easy.


Make a paper plate pirate face…

WIKKI STIXjust press them onto a  slick paper plate.  For seashells, make sure they are washed and free of sand or other small particles.  And for making a “rock band” or any other rock creation, wash the rock thoroughly and let it dry.  Then get creative.

Your grandkids will love becoming “rock stars”!

What are they made of?

Wikki Stix are made of hand-knitting yarn enhanced with a microcrystalline, food-grade non-toxic wax… the kind used in bubble gum and lipstick. And that’s it. (Psst…it’s that touch of wax that allows them to stick)

A few more details:

Wikki Stix do not break or tear apart but cut easily with scissors. They do not contain latex, gluten, nor peanut or other nut oils or byproducts, which makes them an ideal creative activity toy for children with allergies.

They’re also a fun and colorful fidget toy and easy to have on hand when needed.

And still more details:

Wikki Stix conforms to all US Consumer Safety Standards including ASTM D-4236, CA-Prop 65 and F-963, as well as the European Standard BS5665/EN71.

  • They appeal equally to boys and girls and span a wide range of ages (from 3 to 103!)

  • They help enhance learning through hands-on kinesthetic involvement.
  • They stimulate the imagination and creativity in everyone!
