Introduce your household to Echidna Shuffle

Introduce your household to Echidna Shuffle, a family-friendly game of picking up cute bugs and delivering them to their stumps. Roll a die and move the twelve adorable echidnas who carry the bugs on their backs. Keep to the paths and get your bugs home. But watch out, other players may derail you. Deliver all three of your bugs and win!

The game has big, beautifully crafted echidnas that kids love, and six different kinds of bugs in bright colors with matching stumps. There is also a unique two-sided board to keep things fresh and exciting. Echidna Shuffle is also designed with smaller hands in mind so the whole family can enjoy playing together!

With its addictively cute pieces, sturdy construction and intuitive game play, Echidna Shuffle has already won several awards, including the Origins Award: Fan Favorite Family Game of the Year (2019), Mom's Choice Awards Gold Award: Family-Friendly Game (2022) and the Creative Child Award: Game of the Year for Family Games (2022).

Echidna Shuffle is for two to six players, ages six and up, and an average game takes only ten to twenty-minutes to play. The game has been a huge hit with groups of all ages from around the world.  So, hop on an echidna and join the shuffle. Isn't it time to find out what you've been missing?



Made in the USA, the P-flector® solves a particularly annoying parenting problem of potty-training kids peeing through the gap between the toilet seat and bowl.  

Winner of Creative Child Magazine’s Product of the Year (2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019), Baby Maternity Magazine’s 2022 Top Choice Award, and 2021 Mom’s Choice Award, the P-flector® is a flexible urine shield that attaches to the underside of a toilet seat and blocks the gap between the seat and bowl, preventing seated potty-training kids from peeing through the gap.  It attaches with pressure sensitive double-sided tape to round and elongated toilet seats with flat or curved bottoms. Once attached, it can stay in place for extended periods of time; how long depends on individual use.  While the tape is not permanent, additional tape is available to reapply as needed.

The P-flector® keeps kids’ clothes and floors dry. Say goodbye to cleaning up urine puddles, yellow stains down the front of the toilet or yellow stained floors in front of the toilet.  The P-flector® can also be used by seniors and individuals with special needs.  It’s easy to attach, can be cleaned in place, saves parents and care-givers time and avoids the frustration of cleaning up the mess associated with this type of potty-training accident.  The P-flector® and additional tape are available on Amazon.

The Traveler makes traveling with kids easy and fun!

All Wikki Stix products can be described as clean, quiet and creative…but The Traveler has the added attraction of offering all of that in a fun bright red carry case!  

Wikki Stix quickly found their place as a travel toy, when they were handed out by several airlines just a few years ago. Introduced to address the travel benefits of Wikki Stix, The Traveler has long been one of the best sellers in the Wikki Stix line.

Included in the case are 144 Wikki Stix in a total of 22 colors for an amazing amount of creative play. Also included is a 12-page booklet of ideas, activities, illustrations and several step-by-step instructions to give kids a number of fun starting points after which their imaginations take hold…and they take off!

The Traveler is also a great little craft kit. With all those Wikki Stix in a handy carry case…it’s great to take along to spend crafting time with Grandma…or have handy at home for creating a special project.

Wikki Stix themselves are a fun and easy-to-use product for ages 3 and up, as they are soft, pliable, and easy to twist, shape, use and reuse. In fact, they are endlessly reusable. They adhere to most smooth surfaces with just fingertip pressure and are easy to peel up to change or reposition. They do not contain sharp parts and will not tear apart, but cut easily with scissors.  Wholly Made in the USA, Wikki Stix conform to all US safety standards for use by children age 3 and up.
