Before a product wins a Tillywig award it must be easy to use, have a high replay value, be built to last, promote playful interaction, inspire creativity, and encourage new ways of thinking. The unique and versatile construction set Junior GeoStix does all that with its colorful super-bendable, snap-together sticks. What an intriguing way to introduce younger children to early geometry concepts!
The Junior GeoStix set has both straight sticks and curved sticks, but all of them are flexible, and they snap together easily. The included 30 two-sided activity cards will encourage lots of convergent thinking. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Since the 200 flexible plastic sticks connect at lots of different points, your child is bound to think up dozens of creations on his own.
Junior GeoStix includes a pack of 30 double-sided activity cards that extend from simple to complex designs; 200 flexible plastic sticks in 8 colors and 10 different sizes, ranging from about 1 to 6 inches and a convenient plastic storage box.
