Before a product wins a Tillywig award it must be easy to use, have a high replay value, be built to last, promote playful interaction, inspire creativity, and encourage new ways of thinking. The unique and versatile construction set Junior GeoStix does all that with its colorful super-bendable, snap-together sticks. What an intriguing way to introduce younger children to early geometry concepts!
The Junior GeoStix set has both straight sticks and curved sticks, but all of them are flexible, and they snap together easily. The included 30 two-sided activity cards will encourage lots of convergent thinking. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Since the 200 flexible plastic sticks connect at lots of different points, your child is bound to think up dozens of creations on his own.
Junior GeoStix includes a pack of 30 double-sided activity cards that extend from simple to complex designs; 200 flexible plastic sticks in 8 colors and 10 different sizes, ranging from about 1 to 6 inches and a convenient plastic storage box. Junior GeoStix encourages visual perception, motor planning, fine motor skills, color and size recognition, and more.

”This is a fun, affordable STEAM activity for preshcoolers, or really any age! It’s been a really fun thing to add to our Pre-k homeschool curriculum...”Watch the Video
We purchased this as a Christmas present for our 4 year old son, but the first time (and only time so far) we opened Junior GeoStix was immediate fun for the whole family. It was fun to see the creativity and problem solving at work in my 4 and 7 year old in the relatively brief time we spent playing. Looking forward to more family adventures with these!
We enjoy being creative with these geosticks! My one critique is that they can be a little flimsy. That being said they are still used often in our house!
My son loves to build and design. This gives him the ability to do that with a guide. Helps him learn geometry
This might be one of our favorite purchases. The kiddos enjoy the creativity of all the different sizes and colors. They are flexible and easy enough for my 2yr old to join the fun! These are a great purchase.
