Squirrel King: Build with stickers!

Make kids nuts for knowledge and engineering with imaginative squirrel kits that are sure to ignite their own genius through fun
With knowledge comes power. To help children stay ahead in today’s knowledge-driven world, we need to stimulate and engage their brains beyond the classroom.  Now parents can make learning outside of the classroom fun and exciting - without their kids even realizing how much they are learning!

The fun, unique and ingenious Squirrel King kits ( are a swirl of intellect, engineering and creativity delivered with a hands-on approach that inspires a thirst for knowledge.  Kids build something really cool to play with that also stimulates their minds!

Designed for ages 8 and up, the brand new Build with Stickers kits ( combine two things kids love — stickers and building.  Each colorful kit includes novel stickering techniques — no glue involved — and all the materials for children to build, create and explore, making awesome toys in the process.  Bonus stickers are included to encourage adding personal touches of fun.  

With Build with Stickers kits, STEM (science, technology, education and math) principles are explored in an age-appropriate manner.   Build our race car and learn about axels with Project: Speed Racer.  The physics of stability is explored in Project: Sun Lounge.  And while constructing  garden tools with Project: Green Thumb, kids see leverage in action. All this fun comes with an educational bonus box that spotlights the engineering, physics and math concepts encountered while building with stickers!

Create an avatar for your Build With Sticker projects with the original Squirrel King Craft kits.  Crack open the ever-popular and award-winning Squirrel King Craft kit, which comes in a 100% recycled molded-pulp acorn with all the materials needed to construct three colorful and cheeky squirrels.  This kit encourages both creativity and the values of reusing (the instructions turn into a fast-paced, squirrel match game) and recycling (plant the envelope holding the googly eyes, paper ears, arms and legs and grow wildflowers)!
Squirrel King Craft and Build with Stickers kits are great for a fun afternoon of kids building with their brains and your hands! Plus the festive packaging makes for excellent stocking stuffers and birthday gifts. The new Build with Stickers kits are available on the Squirrel King Craft website and at select retail stores, priced from $5.99 to $7.99. The original Squirrel King Craft kit is also available on the website and in over 200 stores across the country, and in a range of choices for $9.99 to $69.99.

Finally, in honor of one of the most treasured kid holidays, check out the Squirrel King’s take on Halloween!

My Thoughts
This was a really neat concept. I loved the nut that the project came in, and best of all, it was biodegradable and gave ideas on how to use the nut for other things besides an art project. Such as, you could plant it into the ground with a plant.

As for the crafts themselves that came with it. I found them to be simple and easy for my daughter to understand. I liked that there was no right way to build the craft and she could put her own unique spin on it. It easily came apart and she could remake it again.

I liked the stickers which took away the need for glue. All she needed were the contents in the box or nut, and her imagination. After she build what she wanted, it stayed together well, allowing her to be able to play with the creation.

As a mom, I give this craft two thumbs up for the concept, creativity, and a child being able to do it without a lot of help from parent, so they could really build their self esteem in completing something.
