Cuddle Bug has an insatiable appetite for all things creative. She doesn’t like following prescribed art lessons where she has to imitate someone else’s art. Instead, she loves to create her own art, and create she does from illustrating books her sister writes to creating paper people for the paper village she’s created. . .the list goes on and on. So, she was thrilled, THRILLED, when we receive Thin Stix Creativity Pack from The Pencil Grip, Inc.
This is a big pack with 24 colors, and it retails for $19.99. They are nut, gluten, and egg free for those with allergies.
About The Pencil Grip, Inc.
The Pencil Grip, Inc. was created by an educational therapist, Dr. Lois Provda. The company has now been in business for over 20 years, and they offer a variety of products, both for therapeutic uses and for fun. We’ve had the pleasure to review Kwik Stix and Thin Stix before, and they’re always a hit with my kids.
In addition to Kwik Stix and Thin Stix, they sell items like gripable silverware, heavy weight pens and pencils, fidget toys, and The Writing CLAW.
How We Used Thin Stix
I’m not kidding when I tell you that Cuddle Bug used these all.the.time. She brought them into bed with her so she could color for a little bit before she went to sleep. When we took a long weekend trip to Flagstaff, she took them with her in the car. They are always within arms reach.
She used them to color pictures and paper dolls, but they can be used for a variety of other purposes such as paper, wood, pumpkins, poster board and more.
What We Think of Thin Stix
Cuddle Bug (7) says about Thin Stix, “They are very good because they’re paint, and they’re very colorful. I like the pink ones best, and I like that they’re glittery. It’s nice that they’re paint, but they’re not all watery like water color paint and they don’t stain my clothes.”
I liked the wide variety of colors and that there were also glittery colors and metallic colors. In addition, I love that they don’t stain clothes. Cuddle Bug routinely gets paint and other art products on her clothes (and often herself), so it’s nice that the paint easily comes out. Unlike some products that market themselves as washable but still leave a stain, Thin Stix coloring comes out completely.
I also appreciate that the paint dries within 90 seconds. There is no mess nor waiting for the painting to dry. It’s very easy to just pull these out and let the girls be creative. Plus, since no water is required, it’s easy to take Thin Stix into the car with us so Cuddle Bug can create a picture while we’re driving.
If you’d like a creative, no mess toy for your kids this Christmas, you can’t go wrong with Thin Stix. Cuddle Bug loves them!
