The Wikki Stix Co.

Trying to Make a Difference.

In an upside down, totally insane world...what can each of us do that will help?  What can any of us offer that might make a difference?  What are the strengths we can bring to the table?

For us, after lots and lots of consideration, it was to reach out to beleaguered parents who have just spent months attempting to homeschool. We know how hard it’s been as we have heard from so many!

Knowing their next challenge was a summer without summer camp, we set about brainstorming ideas we could offer that might be helpful. Our idea became...Wikki Stix Online Summer Camp...a new experience not only for the parents and kids...
but for us as well!!

So, Online Summer Camp with Wikki Stix...came into being...offering weekly activities emailed directly to the family each week, for five weeks...on Wednesday...cleverly (or so we thought) called Wikki Wednesdays. Sign-up was free. We hoped we might have a good response...250 signups or so...and were overwhelmed when that number topped 2,000!

The number of moving parts to the program was astonishing. We were massaging ideas and rewriting copy daily...right up to eblast time! Most activities were indoor ones, as you might imagine, but we also offered several for outdoor Wikki fun as well.

By the time you read this, our idea has gone out into the universe and we hope it has provided lots of fun for lots and lots of families...AND maybe given you some new and innovative ways to present our product.  I also hope all of us in Wikkiland have recovered!

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.

Odyssey Toys' New Lineup!

As always, Odyssey Toys delights with a wide variety of toys and games that will entertain the whole clan and 2020 is no different.

Introducing a 3-piece package from our Lit Sports line, which focuses on light up sport balls. It is not always easy to pry your little ones away from their tablets and phones and force them to go outside and get into sports.  This set includes an LED basketball, LED football and LED soccer ball, all of which shine brightly to keep you and/or your kids entertained for hours on end, in the day and night!

Next up are two additions to our exceedingly popular Creepy Critter Collection. You might be startled at first by how real they look, but once you realize they are just more brilliant critters made by Odyssey Toys, you will breathe a sigh of relief!

Check out the Angry Anaconda, which is twice the size of the popular Slithering Snake. This specimen contorts it’s body and flicks it’s tongue as you control it via remote control. Witness it slither over various surfaces, from carpet and tile to pavement. The Meddling Mouse resemble and mimics its real-lifelike counterpart! It might even catch the attention of any cats that happen to be lurking nearby! These large and furry critters will keep you mesmerized and entertained for hours on end.

Finally, Odyssey Toys brings a new line of fun and easy to use Stunt Cars.  Featured here is the Tank Twister, a remote-controlled monster tank that methodically plods and twists all over any surface. Its ability to take on just about anything in its way, rotate 180 degrees and flip over and crawl on walls will keep anyone who controls it entertained for hours! You’ll be amazed at how smoothly this toy moves for being such a burly, intimidating machine.

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.
