Cut & Create Station

Cutie Stix: Continuous Cuts, Countless Designs!
Cut it, create it and show it. The Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station is the all-in-one activity empowering you to design a variety of visual goodies… your way! You can craft customizable bracelets, necklaces, nail art, fun animal figures and more with colorful, two-sided beads that you cut. And the Cut & Create station makes it so easy and fun to express yourself. Simply choose your Cutie Stix design, cut it and core out the center to make and show off your fashion-forward creations. With continuous cuts, the design combinations are endless!
The Cutie Stix products are really interesting jewelry making kits designed specifically for girls aged 6-10, but I don’t believe in catering to typical gender stereotypes. In my 22+ years as a boy-mom, I have learned that there really is no gender when it comes to toys or craft sets. When I was offered the opportunity to have the boys test out the new Cutie Stix Cut & Create Station, I knew that it was something that they would enjoy.
The Cutie Stix themselves are like little eraser sticks that you cut to size to create your jewelry. Kristopher didn’t want to make a bracelet so he took his share of the pieces to use as erasers (and they work really well as an eraser too).
Thomas and Hayden, however, were all into making bracelets and with the help of my 19 year old, they spent an afternoon over the May long weekend cutting, designing and creating. It was pretty easy to use, but Hayden (7) definitely needed help. Thomas (9) was good to work on his own.

What makes Cutie Stix such a fun toy (and craft)?
- Endless design combinations
- Adorable themes
- Fashionable and creative play
- Colourful designs with matte finish
- Simple to use
- Tactile (fun to touch)
Hayden’s favourite pieces were the pee and poo emojis (I can’t say I was surprised by this), but he also really loved the dog (and paws).
All 3 of the boys enjoyed playing with the Cutie Stix and so did my 19 year old (but don’t tell him I’m telling you because he’ll deny it! That fox figure pictured above just might be his but you didn’t hear it from me)! This was a really fun and unique craft kit!
