Wikki Stix Alphabet
Your hands-on preschooler needs a lot of repetition in letter formation before he can recognize and write actual letters. Wikki Stix Alphabet will not only help your child study the mechanics of letter making but will also introduce him to some rudimentary letter/object correlations. On this set of colorful and uncluttered letter cards, your child will just follow the arrows to bend and stick the Wikki Stix, slightly tacky reusable yarn, to trace each upper and lower case letter. Soft and pliable Wikki Stix is a proven tool for tactile, hands-on learning and requires just fingertip pressure to stick. And it is just as easy to peel up and reposition Wikki Stix as needed.

Each Wikki Stix Alphabet card also includes an item that is spelled beginning with the letter being studied (Ant for “A”; Dinosaur for “D”, etc.) that can also be traced with Wikki Stix. Reusable and unbreakable, made simply of yarn and food-grade nontoxic wax, Wikki Stix have been manufactured in the USA for over twenty years. No glue, no preparation, no cleanup, no mess Wikki Stix Alphabet is ideal for quiet times and travel. Wikki Stix Alphabet includes 26 individual cards plus 36 tactile Wikki Stix® to create hands-on educational fun.

Independent work

My daughter loves completing these. I was hesitant to buy them based on some reviews but I’m glad that I did! She works independently and likes to cut the sticks into perfect lengths. She does like to roll the sticks together but they’re easy enough to pull apart.

Not my favorite

I don’t get the craze over these. My kids didn’t like that we needed to prep different lengths, and then they got smushed together and were hard to separate back out. I wanted to love them, but I didn’t.

Cary, thank you for your feedback! When using Wikki Stix with our kids, we like to fold the Wikki Stix in half to create the half-length lines, or we have the child wrap the Wikki Stix back to double-trace those parts. Thus, no prep is needed! Thank you for sharing your frustration, we'll plan to add a note to our next year's PreK Handbook, so future families can implement this idea to use Wikki Stix with ease. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! - the Timberdoodle Team

As good as it sounds

These are described as endlessly reusable. I was doubtful of that, thinking the wikkistix would get dirty and not stick anymore. I am pleased to discover that this is not the case andthat they do seem to actually be endlessly reusable!

Great independent activity

My kids both loved this. I loved it because it is independent at a level where most of the work is not. It does require some fine motor skills that may not have developed right away. I do 2 letters a week and the first time through, it’s usually a mess and Thats ok. By the time we get to the second round through, the kids are much better at it. So, if your kids can’t do it right away, just let them play and they will be able to do it later!

Good for the price but should have more wikki stiks in my opinion.

We like this, and the kids always enjoy when we pull it out. But what I don't like is that the wikki sticks require being cut to really be functional. Also the wikky sticks are tacky so they start to collect dust and such over time. Considering how absolutely cheap I'm sure the wikki sticks are to make, I would have liked to see this kit come with far more of them, to really extend the life of this product. I went to buy replacements and just couldn't bring myself to pay $8 for a handful of tacky string. So it's fun, but not a favorite.
