I received a pack of Thin Stix in exchange for my honest opinion for this review.
Awhile back, I posted a couple reviews about Kwik Stix. We absolutely love this product, because it provides a way for your child to paint without the messy clean up.
These paint Stix are much like a glue stick, only they each have a separate paint color that is made up of tempera paint that dries in no time! This means that paint time, arts and crafts, is now more enjoyable for mom or teacher because there is no need to drag out messy cups of water, paint brushes, and colors that stain tables and clothing if you don't get to it in time. Kwik Stix remedies this by providing paint inside the twist tube that goes on like glue, can be applied to many surfaces or papers, and dries in no time. Almost as soon as your child is done creating, that painting is ready to hang on the fridge.
As much as we loved the idea of paint stix your child can hold in their hand and dries quickly leaving more time for creativity and less time cleaning up, the only thing missing was the ability to draw fine, detailed lines.
Well, the people at The Pencil Grip Co. and Kwik Stix are pleased to announce their new Kwik Stix THIN STIX:
The package I received for review contained 12 classic colors.
They are the same solid tempera paint stix only thinner, making drawing more detailed lines possible. Here are some ways my child used them:
In the words of my 10 year old:
My only complaint with the Kwik Stix was that I couldn't draw details, but they fixed that! I really like the Thin Stix, because they allow me to draw thinner lines!"
