WFMW (Crayola Twistables Slick Stix)
It's time to post yet another WFMW tip. This week I'm posting about our new favorite coloring product, Crayola Twistables Slick Stix! The endorsement I'm about to give was not solicited. I just love this product enough to want to spread the word on my own.

We first saw this brand of Crayola Twistables at the craft area of a street fair in our city. Snuggle Bug and I tried them and had a lot of fun creating vibrant colored pictures! So, the Easter bunny decided to leave Snuggle Bug a set in his Easter basket this past Sunday.

What I like about these Twistables is that they require no peeling or sharpening when the tips get worn down—just twist them up and you're ready to keep on coloring. The clear plastic barrels keep them from breaking and make it easy to see how much color is left. Child safe snap on cap prevents drying out.

The Crayola Twistables Slick Stix remind me a bit of using a tube of lipstick for coloring. These rich, brilliant colors glide across the page, making coloring lots of fun! Take a look at Snuggle Bug’s latest masterpiece! He had a blast creating it this afternoon. I practically had to pry the colors out of his hand when it was time to go.

Word of caution: these are not entirely washable. The twistables can make a mess because the colors can smear at first. I would advise you to keep these set up out of reach and only allow them to be used under the careful eye of a parent. I’d hate to see what would happen if a toddler were on the loose in the house with a set of these!

Crayola Twistables Slick Stix works for me! To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

How fun! My little girl would absolutely love these. I'm going to check our stores locally for these. Thanks!

Those look super neat! Evan likes to color on himself too much so we have to stick with the washable stuff for now.

You know how I am about colors. LOL.

Cute pictures. The twistables sound neat. I didn't even know they had them.

We have the original twistable and they are fun. I will definitely have to pick up a pack of these. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for the review! I saw these in the store, and wondered what "slick" meant. Appreciate you clearing that up. We'll have to give 'em a try.

Thanks! I saw these and wondered. Now I know!

Very cool!!! I've seen the twistable crayons but not the slick ones, and it looks like the color would show on paper easier and better than a normal crayon. Great review!

Looks like mom and child both love these!


At 12:12 PM, Blogger Tammy said...

I've been wondering about these, so it was good to hear how you liked them! :) I think my two girls would really enjoy them...I'll make sure my almost 5 yr old is wearing play clothes at the time! :)

Now those are some neat looking crayons; I'll have to see if the BX carries any.
