Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of modeling clay for kids 9 years revenue from your purchase. But to anyone with kids who expect a Christmas stocking filled with treats and trinkets, there always seems to be one common factor: We parents almost always forget about stuffing that stocking until the very last few days before Christmas.
Thanks to the magic of Amazon Prime, you still have a few days left to order all sorts of superlative stocking stuffers. But don’t wait any longer, OK? Buying gifts is hard — let us help. Check out all our 2017 gift guides on Insider Picks. A pile of Wikki Stix can be made into just about anything, from a simple, 2D stick figure to a multi-colored, three-dimensional dinosaur, train, animal, or anything else. The only limit is the imagination and maybe the fine motor skills.
Wikki Stix are a great toy for a few reasons, the first of which is that these unique “molding and sculpting” sticks really are fun for most ages. My son enjoyed them when he was three, and I liked playing with them even though I was um in my 30s. They easily stick to one another and can be attached to most smooth surfaces, like a tabletop or a plane’s tray table, yet they can be easily pulled apart or removed from a surface without leaving a residue. If you’re under the age of 40, you probably got one of these little gliders in your own holiday stocking when you were a kid.
