A new kind of publisher, for a new kind of reader

Reading is changing.

We live in an age of distractions, with entire industries built around the goal of getting our attention. At the same time, the popularity of short-form entertainment has exploded. Given these trends, it’s only natural for our attention spans to be decreasing, and our patterns of consuming information to be changing.

Where does Second Story Up fit in?
Long-form fiction is our passion, exciting stories of adventure and mystery that also speak in terms of metaphor and analogy. The best story, for us, is one that’s fast and easy to read. It takes us away from the world, but stays with us long after we’re done reading. It leaves us asking questions and looking around with new eyes.

The mission of Second Story Up is to bring those kinds of experiences to today’s readers.

Our first two books, Bradley's Dragons and The Boy With The Sword, are award-winning books for kids aged 8 - 16. They're available in hardback, paperback, and e-book.

Those are just the beginning. While we continue to work on more books, we’re also building new ways to share our stories, and by "our" we don’t mean just the ones we are writing.

Those are only the beginning.

Think Wikki...Do Wikki!

It’s Game Time! At least in Wikkiland. Introducing the brand new Do-Wikki family fun game. It’s about time Wikki Stix had a game!

Not just for the kids, but something Mom and Dad can enjoy, too. Plus, zany fun for those hard-to-entertain ‘tweens!

While a lot of what’s happened in Wikkiland the past few months has revolved around homeschooling and the educational applications of Wikki Stix...we are happy to be looking forward now to Christmas! And a new family game tops our Christmas list!

Do-Wikki offers instructions which provide multiple ways to play...making it an easily adaptable game everyone can enjoy.  

Do-Wikki packaging is a bit of a departure from our norm. Instead of a slick, fancy folding carton, the box is a sturdy standard utility box, with a fun, colorful wrapper, which combine to help keep costs down. And, the sturdy box will be useful to hold all the game components securely at hand.

While we typically introduce only one new item at a time, somehow our line has grown to offer 58 Wikki Stix products! Most are truly intended for kids, but we do have a few for grown-ups that make great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers.  

How about Fixables...the amazing quick-fix repair kit...in Dad’s stocking this year? Or Armchair Fun for Seniors, the hands-on doodle product for elderly family members...something entertaining to do in the comfort of any easy chair...or wheelchair. Winner of the Mom’s Choice Gold Award.

All are in-stock and available to ship asap...from the dedicated elves in Wikkiland! As we say this holiday season...Think Wikki...Do Wikki!

Rip-ROARing Good Time!

What has Aeromax been up to lately?

It has been 23 years and counting since Aeromax set out to create dress up to inspire and spark the imaginations of children. From its start with a tangle-free toy parachute to its “Get Real Gear” career-oriented costumes, toys, hats, and accessories, Aeromax continues to lead the pack with fun innovative ideas.  

Here at Aeromax, we have answered the call to add Mesozoic Era fun to our ever-expansive selection of goodies.

By using the equation of fun + dinosaurs, the answer started to become very clear. Aeromax is very proud to introduce “Dino-Faurs”. Four-Wheeled rip-ROARing Dinosaur fun for ages 3 and up. As kid powered toys go, no batteries required for endless hours of four-wheel tricks, all to be had with a simple pull back and let them go excitement. Available in Green, Blue, or Red. All are highlighted with a crackle finish which gives them the Dinosaur look. The mouth opens wide and the tail can be repositioned to allow for wheelie tricks and more. Product size is approximately 7” x 4” x 4.5”.  

By digging deeper into our creative minds, Aeromax has designed the ultimate high-quality, everyday jacket that our Jr. Dino-enthusiast friends will be proud to show off. Introducing to our esteemed “Get Real Gear” line of dress-up is our all new Jr. Paleontologist Jacket. This cool jacket is adorned with an abundance of unique and original paleontology related patches on the chest and sleeves. Spanning the rear of the jacket is a colorful and ever so popular T-Rex fossil skull. Available in two sizes, Youth Small and Youth Extra Small, fitting a general age range of 2-4 & 4-8 respectively.

What better way to top the adorable jackets off than with your choice of either a Bucket style or Baseball style Dino-Hat. The 50cm Jr. Dinosaur Bucket Hat is adorned with “T-REX” displayed on the front along with a screened T-Rex fossil skull sitting atop the dome. The 54cm adjustable Jr. Dinosaur Baseball Cap is decked out with a high-quality Dinosaur Expedition patch and the two-tone color pallet smartly matches the Jr. Paleontologist Jacket.

Armchair Fun... For Seniors!

You’ve heard us say it for years...ages 3 to 103! And, we now have a product speci cally designed for that second age group.

Armchair Fun for Seniors came out of our work with Occupational Therapists as well as with the Life Enrichment Directors at Senior Living Facilities. The need: something easy to see, easy to use, reusable, and forgiving.

Just as Wikki Stix Creatables work well for preschoolers, those same characteristics make them an ideal medium for the senior crowd. Bright and colorful...easy for older eyes to see; soft and pliable... easy for arthritic ngers to work with. Endlessly reusable and totally forgiving...makes them ideal for all ages! Plus, Wikki Stix help with concentration and focus.

Working with three Senior Living Facilities in the Phoenix area, we learned what kinds of activities are most popular in the arts and crafts programs...and what kinds of materials the Activity Director looks for.

And...Armchair Fun for Seniors was created! Fun and entertaining, it is well suited for use as a solitary pastime...as well as for interaction with family and friends. Armchair Fun for Seniors comes with a sturdy lapboard, so Wikki Stix doodling and creativity can be enjoyed in the comfort of a favorite chair.

You’ve had the question, “what can you suggest for my grandfather to do, now that he’s moved in with us?” With 96 Wikki Stix and lots of activities, Armchair Fun for Seniors is the perfect answer.

We have also created a large, commercial size kit, designed for use in senior living facilities. Both the Armchair Fun for at-home use and the larger package are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
