What’s in a Stik-a-mals 9-pack? Super cute, silicon, fantasy animals that stick to each other as well as to smooth surfaces. That includes mirrors and windows. Imagine the possibilities. Likely you’re wondering how that’s possible. It’s simple really. They have suction cups for feet. So push down to stick. Then pull to unstick. That’s easier and more fun than you might think. Because suction cups pop. Softly when being stuck. Louder when being unstuck. All that pop, pop, popping develops Ideal as rewards and surprises, eye-hand coordination and muscle strength in the fingers and hand.
Although these are fantasy animals, children will likely notice how closely some resemble actual animals. That’s an opportunity to talk about similarities and differences. Such comparisons not only sharpen observation skills but also build vocabulary. Children adore small figures, readily using them in imaginative play. During such play, children create scenarios that allow them to recreate experiences and explore feelings. Language and storytelling skills improve as a result.
Stik-a-mals 9-pack includes one each of nine unique figures, in assorted bright colors. That’s an opportunity to sort by color or shape and to count. Figures measure from 1 1/8″ to 2 3/8″L. Small, lightweight, and easy to sanitize. Perfect for on-the-go play. Stik-a-mals work well both as distraction toys and fidgets, when the child does not need to be quiet. Keep a canister on hand for rewards and surprises. Want more than one of each? Stik-a-mals by the Herd makes sharing more affordable.
