Zip Stix Challenge

zip-stix-review


Zip Stix have challenged bloggers to show off their stunts using Zip Stix. These pocket money toys are a bit like small slap bands and the idea is that you can use a launcher to perform stunts with and knock over objects. Unfortunately, I seem to have got old and lost the ability to operate such simple things. Luckily big man found it much easier than me with a little practice. Here he is showing how to use them.


They are a simple toy that my boys seem to like. There are 72 zip stix in total to collect. Just set up your stunt, place your zip stix in the launcher and press down on it to get it to roll up and fire.

I think these would make a great stocking filler with Christmas coming up. Big man recommends getting a pack which has cones in as he likes knocking these down.



We're going on an adventure




We were given the Zip Stix pack for the purpose of this review but the opinions here are my own.

These look like fun. My lg is too young for them but she loves little bits and bobs so she'd probably grab them and stick them in a handbag with a bunch or marbles and god knows what lol. Glad your boy enjoyed them :)
