Forget about Java, web, and other technological applets; stay entertained with Stick-lets! Christina Kazakia, owner of Kazakia Design, conceived of Stick-lets after recognizing the diminishing role that nature had in children’s play. Stick-lets, each piece a colorful silicone plate with multiple holes of varying sizes, make easy interaction with the outdoor environment. The silicone acts as a multifunctional rubber band that can bind together branches (and more!) as children build forts and tents with nature’s gifts. The neon colors of Stick-lets glow against the earthy greens and browns that normally color the backyard. And, for the more timid, starter sticks of untreated birch wood are also available.
