You’d be hard pressed to have missed a Bendaroos commercial in the last few months. In fact, their branding has been so great, my 5 year old spent weeks walking around quoting the ad verbatim. (That’s some powerful marketing, folks!)
He was on us to get him a pack, so we finally broke down and got him one when I found them on sale locally. So what are they? They are “flexible bending sticks.” Basically it’s a no mess toy. (woohoo) Waxy, pliable and colorful sticks, they can be bent and molded into various shapes. You’ll find all sorts of cool suggestions on the website. Each “box” come with 500 colorful sticks for your kids to build with.
But here’s the bonus usage we recently discovered: Bendaroos as wine charms! On a recent trip with friends, the kids had left their Bendaroos out on the kitchen table. After they went to bed, the Moms and Dads found we were confusing our drinks. One savvy Mommy used a Bendaroo to identify her glass and we all followed suit. Even funnier were the questions the next day, “Mommy, why is there a Bendaroo on your wine glass?”
Seriously though, this is a great, reusable craft and toy that keeps kids entertained for hours. They sell for $19.99. Visit the YouBendaroo.com website to purchase and get inspired with design ideas.
GIVEAWAY: We also have 5 packs of Bendaroos to giveaway to 5 lucky Mommies with Style winners. To enter, leave a comment in this posting letting us know what you think your kids would build with their Bendaroos if you won.
5 winners will be selected at random after April 19th.

  3. Honey Becker says

    These things look like so much fun~! My 2 and 4 year olds would have a blast with them 🙂 Thanks for the chance~!

  4. My sons would make silly faces with them and would also wrap them around their cars.

  5. I see the commercials for these all the time. They look really neat and I know my 5 year old would love them!

  6. I was first introduced to bendaroos at a restaurant! Simply magical at keeping hands busy. They also stick to glass/windows so they double as those window gel things! Nice!

  7. My kid would probably try to eat it 🙂

  8. These look like so much fun! Ever since we saw the commercials, my kid has begged me to get some, it’s on my list!

  9. Some sort of animal or monster-that would probably be what my 5-year old would make. He’s really into creating things.

  10. My son drags me to the tv every time the commercial comes on. He has already told me that he wants to make a mask with a paper plate and Bendaroos – just like they do on tv 🙂

  11. My kids played with these at a friends house and made bracelets, checkers, cups, a rainbow (with all those great colors!) and countless other things! Amazing toy and since it’s no mess it can be played with anywhere.

  12. My girls love the commercial, too, and would decorate everything. It will probably end up looking like some funky nonsensical modern artwork!

  13. My son has been asking for these non-stop. Yesterday he tried to convince me by telling me that “they aren’t messy, Mommy”. He would build aliens, dinosaurs, flowers, cars, robots, you name it, he’ll build it.

  14. Heather Langer says

    My 5 year old is obsessed with the commercial. When I asked him what he’d build first, he already knew exactly what he’d build for everyone in our family. “A watch for dad, a cute picture for mom, a hippopotamus for brother, a baby doll stroller for sister, and a
    Pokemon battle field for me. He’s full of ideas.

  15. They would probably build a fairy forest or something to do with fairies.

  16. Tamara Christians says

    My daughter would make different pieces of jewelry. She loves to look pretty!

  17. Jessica T says

    Princesses or Transformers would be shaped in our house!

  18. Castles, and snakes would be what they’d make.

  19. My girls would build animals, crowns, jewelry, powerpuff girls glasses, everything uner the sun.

  20. Arlene Assalone says

    My daughter loves to make flowers and that is what she would make with the bendaroos.

  21. jennyriver says

    my DD would use these as window stickers – she LOVES that commercial!!!

  22. my son would try to make a duck, dog, car, meow (aka cat), choo choo (aka train) – all his favorites right now!

  23. I think my daughter would make a basket!

  24. I think my daughter would make a basket!

  25. Cathy Lee says

    My son would probably create a weapon and my daughter some type of animal.

  26. No idea what she’d build. She’s been asking for these for awhile. I bet she’d make some lovely jewelry, bracelets, rings and necklaces.

  27. My daughter would make jewelry out of them and teach me how to wear all of it at once. She prides herself on being fancy and would like me to be more fancy, too.

  28. my daughter has been asking for these ever since she saw the commercial! she would probably put them on everything she could find and make jewelry! 🙂

  29. My daughter would have SO much fun with these! Thank you for the offer!

  30. Having three girls, I can only imagine having lots of tiaras & rings made out of the Bendaroos. Thanks for the review, my kids have been asking for some, & I have been reluctant, ever since we tried Pixos.

  31. Kagome6603 says

  32. Kagome6603 says
