    Hi - just wondering if anyone has any experience with Bendaroos. I picked some up at Walgreens yesterday for $20 for Christmas since my DS had been begging for them. I'm trying to decide if I want to keep them or not. TIA!

    I am interested to hear about them. DS5 asked for them. We have wiki stix and he likes those, I assume they are more or less the same.

    My DD asked for these. I just never got around to ordering them. I'll have to go to Walgreens and see if they have them. I didn't know they sold them.

    I work at Acme (Albertson's) and we carry them also. They were in with the gifts in the Holiday section. Good luck! I paid a fortune for two packs for my two daughters (shipping was CRAZY) before I found out that my workplace sold them. I have also seen them at Walgreens in the section where items that were AS SEEN ON TV located. NOT in the toy section!

    My dd6 also asked for these. I bought them on Ebay to make sure they were here in time for Christmas and then my SIL said she saw them at Walgreens...ugh! They appear to be a little longer than the Wikki Stix and maybe a little "waxier."

    My DS7 has been asking for these, I can't believe they sell them at Walgreens! I looked around at a couple of stores but not there, figured they were not in stores yet. Anyway, I ordered them online on Dec 6th. I was kind of annoyed because it said "allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery" but I refused to spend even more for express shipping. Figured it would be a very late Christmas present! Anyway, they came today, not even 2 weeks since I ordered. I never got any shipping confirmation.

    Thank you for this, I was also looking online for them but didn't want to pay shipping, read they had them at Boscov's but ours closed and even that one wasn't real close. We have Walgreens in the next town. Hope ours has them.

    hmmm... are the Wikki Stix the same thing? My dd wants these & I ordered the Wikki Stix from Amazon - maybe I will wander up to Walgreens & see - it just opened up down the street. Even though she can't read, her sisters can!

    Thanks for this info, all my DD wants are these and Pixos. I thought it was too late to order them, glad to pick them up and not pay shipping.

    My dd (9) asked for them last year and I ordered them online, for a whole lot more then $20, btw...anyway...she LOVED them! Played with the a lot, before they started loosing their "waxiness" (my new made up word)....The only caution I would say is be careful your kids don'e accidentally leave one on a floor that has carpet...dd did this and after she, her sister & the 2 100+ pound dogs walked on it I had a heck of a time getting it out....I might head to Walgreens to get some more...
