Throwback toy: Wooden Pick–Up Sticks resurface


I've never liked the shiny plastic version that's been the de facto standard for many years now.

They don't look right and they don't feel right and they just don't work right when you're trying an especially delicate lifting maneuver using them as levers.

That's why this return to the classic of days gone by is most welcome.

These are longer than the ones from way back in the day, though: they measure 9.75" each, supposedly to make things easier for the little ones.

30 assorted colored sticks for $6.95 here.

I was so intriqued by this in the print catalog but, alas, "stock for this new product arrived in unsatisfactory condition. As a result, it is no longer available for purchase."
