Thin Stix Review


The Pencil Grip, Inc

Hey neighbors!!

Here is our most recent TOS review, the Thin Stix 6pk of Classic Colors.  These are a set of solid tempera paint stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc.  This amazing design, allows for mess free creativity.  It is basically a soft, solid paint pen that allows your child to paint with much less mess and fuss than using a jar of paint with a paint brush.

Thin Stix by KwikStix

The Thin Stix, Kwik Stix set I received for review is a set of six, that actually look like markers.  They do not color like markers though, they actually paint.  They have caps, like markers, and are a convenient size for children.  They are not fine point, as the idea is to paint, not write, yet they are not so wide a child could not do slightly detailed work.  They will not work for fine drawing or coloring.  As they use the Paint Stix, they simply twist the bottom to move the paint up.  This set of six, comes with black, brown, blue, green, red and yellow.  When applied to paper it almost looks like soft crayon, but it is paint, and dries fairly quickly.  It dries within 90 seconds.  This means less smearing, and less clean-up.  The Kwik Stix are non-toxic, so are safe for your children to use. The paint does not crack or peel.

The Thin Stix make it so easy for your child to create art work, and they give you a lot less to clean up.    You wont't need paint, brushes, bowls, water and a cover-up of some type for your child, they can just use the Kwik Stix like markers or crayons, yet they have a paint texture and finish when they are done.  It is said to work on paper, cardboard, canvas and wood.  The caps must be put back on after use so the paint does not dry out.

The Thin Stix, Kwik Stix are available in other colors and different packages.  They have neon, metallic, or classic, and a few different kits.  One kit comes with glitter and another includes a 20 ft. roll of paper.  One pack comes with 24 different colors.  On a side note, these are perfect for trips.  Your child can still do artwork, and all you need to pack is this set of Thin Stix, as well as something to paint on.  You do not need to pack a whole paint set and all the accessories.


My daughter said this was a nice way to experiment with paint.  The only drawback she brought up was you don't have different size tips to work with like you would with paint brushes.

You can find Thin Stix online at Amazon, just click the link above.  If you prefer to see them first, you can find them at Toys-R-Us.  This is one of those products that are worth the investment, due to the less mess and less clean-up time.  Add a pack to your homeschool art kit.
