Stikits(R) From Poof(R)-Slinky(R) Receives Industry Honors

June 9, 2011 - Plymouth, MI

Stikits, a newly acquired product by Poof-Slinky, Inc., is a tried and true product line that is receiving industry recognition for its eco-friendly characteristics and ability to engage children through imaginative play. Stikits is an activity line featuring colorful, biodegradable "blocks" that, when dampened with water, stick together to create an endless variety of sculptures and creative images.

Dr. Toy recognized Stikits because they are completely biodegradable and they dissolve entirely in water. The National Parenting Center testers appreciated Stikits for the unique tactile experience it provides as well as the imaginative play it offers children. In addition, the biodegradable feature of the product scored high particularly among the parents of its testers.

"The Stikits product line provides an opportunity for children to create unique works of art using just Stikits and a little water," said Ray Dallavecchia, Chief Executive Officer of Poof-Slinky, Inc. "It is great to see that the testers with Dr. Toy and The National Parenting Center recognize the value of this imaginative play and also appreciate the fact that our 'blocks' are fully biodegradable and completely recyclable."

Stikits "blocks" can be twisted and shaped to create both simple and complicated projects. Each kit comes with tools that can be used to make different patterns and shapes as well as a sponge applicator. Perfect for the budding artist or the advanced arts and crafts aficionado, Stikits are easy to use! Parents appreciate that there is no set up; no mess and fast clean up. Stikits are available in a variety of assortments including 180, 400 and 1,000-piece sets each with complete instructions to create a huge variety of sculptures. In addition, a Castle Play Set and a Pirate Ship Play Set are available. The line will be expanding in 2012.
