Artline Stix Review - Draw, Build, Play! A Back to School Special #SLHFeaturedThursdays


Kids adore making art. My own are forever drawing, crafting, building and creating. It just makes complete sense to combine the joys of all of these great kids' past times into one great product.

We've been introduced to the amazing Artline Stix very recently and I promise you, this is one pack of vibrant pens that are making huge waves around here! My kids have been reaching for the Stix at every arty-moment. These are not your average markers!

It hardly seems possible to build on the fun of the drawing experience in general, but these great little educational tools have managed to do just that.

Artline Stix are a new product that have been specifically developed for the 3-9 year age group. A recent study revealed the average 6 year old will sit down to draw for around 14 minutes. Add some spiffy tweaks to the average marker, like those embodied in the Artline Stix range, and watch this concentration span increase to a whopping 26 minutes! Now that's something worth writing about!



Artline Stix are break-through markers with some fab features to grab the attention of kids regardless of age. In an effort to build on the beneficial fine motor skills engaged during the process of writing and drawing, the Stix have so much going for them. They've a unique triangular barrel for easy gripping and manoeuvrability. They're just the right thickness for younger hands to grip and control. They're collectable, colourful and best of all - they connect!

Available on three tip sizes. Paintbrush, thick and fine points all help to make the drawing and writing efforts of kids, easy and effortless plus rewarding and fun.
By using the simple idea behind all basic building brick toys, each Artline Stix pen has the ability to connect and grow. Kids can build with no limits and the pens come with add-ons such as connector pieces which aid their unique creations to bend, spin and snap together. There are so many ideas kids can source on the Artline Stix website as well as downloadable colouring-in sheets. Make sure you check it out.


Engineer while you draw.
Artline Stix come with a collection of cute toy characters which can be applied directly to the pens themselves for decoration or star in some of your child's spectacular builds.


Despite being engineered with 3-9 year olds in mind, the kids in this household of all ages have embraced the challenge and fun of the Artline Stix. My teenagers are choosing these markers over their school-appointed ones, simply because they are a great marker for projects and assignments.

Equally, my toddler has developed a deep love of the strong pigments in these pens. Another benefit of the Artline Stix is the non-toxic and washable ink. These are such great pens and I have noticed that younger kids want to stick to paper instead of other surfaces!




Artline Stix colouring markers, drawing pens and brush markers are available in packs of 6, 10 and 20 with a RRP of $6, $10 and $18. Connectors are available as a bonus in all packs of markers and can also be purchased separately in an assorted pack of 18 for RRP $6. Artline's range of collectable toy characters are sold in three-pack combos for RRP $5. There are 18 characters to collect.

Find Artline Stix at all major Australian retailers and Woolworths, Toys R Us, Officeworks and Staples. Visit the Artline Stix website to find out more. Fab product!

  4. I've seen these in Woolies! I AM most definitely going to buy some as I have not checked them out yet. Thanks for your review, they sound pretty good. I went through the kids textas the other day and lots of them are no good, so chucked a heap out. The strong colours sound just like what we need :)
