Wikki Stix Alphabet
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.

My 4 year old really enjoys playing with these, they are a great tool for practicing his letters.
awesome sensory learning, my 4 year old loved it
Fun, tactile way for kids to work on learning the alphabet! My 3yo LOVES these! My only "complaint" is that the stiks are not always the right length to use one or two on each letter without bending them back on each other, etc. I guess that's fine though because my kids are working on their fine motor and spatial awareness skills when working with the stiks to get them in the right shapes to make the letters. Just something to be aware of. Otherwise, my kids love these, they're engaging, and think they are really fun!
I love that this is a tactile learning tool, but I'm not a fan of the stickiness.... my kids don't mind at all.
My 3-4-year-old son just preferred to twist these until they were practically unusable rather than make letters with them. This is probably because I brought a small pack with us on an airplane before introducing them as a medium for letter making. He was also a bit young when we started the AAR Pre-Reading curriculum (3-years-old) and found it easier to make the straight letters with toothpicks or straws or the curvy letters with big pieces of play dough. I found the Deluxe kit was definitely needed for the Alphabet, because you have to cut the pieces to make the letters and there is no way you'd have enough pieces with a smaller set.
