Disclaimer:  This is a sponsored post, and all opinions are mine.  I received a 12-pk of Thin Stix to try in exchange for my honest review.

You may remember that we had the pleasure of reviewing the original Kwik Stix last year.  First, we tried out the basic colors.  Then near the holidays, we tried out the Metalix and Neon colors.

Since then, though, The Pencil Grip released the awesome new Thin Stix!  They sent us the super cool Thin Stix 12 Pk., which comes in 12 basic colors.  It’s available for just $11.99!

Look at all of these beautiful, bright colors!

In case you’re not familiar with them already or perhaps you missed my previous reviews of them, they are unique tempera paints that come in a solid form that kids can draw and “paint” with like soft crayons, only no brushes or water are required, and therefore, there’s no mess!  Your kids’ creations will dry completely in just 90 seconds!

My 12-year old daughter, Haylee, has thoroughly enjoyed her Kwik Stix and draws with the all the time.  Since she’s older, though, she was really hoping they’d come up with some that had a narrower tip to allow for finer detail in her designs.  That’s where Thin Stix come in!  I can’t tell you how excited she was when she saw they’d released this wonderful new version.  She jumped at the chance to try them out, and she’s had fun creating with them ever since! 


First, she drew lines with all of the colors just to show you how narrow of a line you can draw with the Thin Stix.  It also shows off how vibrant the colors are!

Then she drew some pictures with smaller details.


Here, she wanted to demonstrate that you can still use Thin Stix to fill in larger designs as you would with the regular Kwik Stix, but in doing so, you can use a series of smaller lines to add texture to a large surface area.


And here, she demonstrated how you can make a more advanced drawing, taking advantage of the smaller tips.

Clearly, you can see that these new Thin Stix are very versatile and provide a fun and creative tool that even older kids can appreciate and enjoy!  We highly recommend you try them out, and Haylee looks forward to collecting more Thin Stix in the coming months, which are available in Metalix and Neons, as well as in an all-encompassing Creativity Pack that combines all 3 sets into one box!

Even if you already have the regular Kwik Stix, you’ll definitely want to add Thin Stix to your collection.  They take creativity to a whole new level!
