They are little wax sticks. As per the commercial, you can bend them, twist them, build them... and pick them out of your carpet for a billion years. The kids did like them, absolutely... but if even ONE of them didn't get picked up, you're on your hands and knees with an exacto knife scraping it out of your carpet fibers. And not for nothing, but I got better stuff to do. For realsies.
My son had a baggie of them on his lap the other day, and he was swirling them up into these little... well... swirls. I didn't get a degree in journalism, folks, and we're all paying the price for my lack of descriptive skills. I was looking at those little swirls and thinking, "I can make something with those things... and then they'll be used up... and I won't have to pick them out of the carpet... and I could really go for a milkshake right about now."
So I did it. Made something with the waxy swirls that is, not get a milkshake. I rounded up some waxy strips and an old picture frame that had been disassembled by tiny hands.
Now, how about that milkshake?
