The Cleversticks construction Toy is a British Invention, currently manufactured in the UK at Mountain Ash in South Wales.
Cleversticks is an educational toy with great play value.
The Cleversticks construction system has been supplied to Schools through educational catalogues for over 30 years. It has been designed for all children over 3 years of age using standardised parts.
For younger children there is a simple wheel where the parts easily fit together using hubs that slide onto a round pin giving a friction grip.
For older children there is a complex wheel and tyre assembly. The wheel uses a stub axle, which is engaged in a bearing and held in place with a spring clip inserted into a keyway. The clip is a scaled down version of components actually used in industry (This may be the first time a circlip has been used in a construction toy) Younger children will need help to assemble this wheel. Cleversticks is supplied in a recyclable plastic bag to reduce unnecessary cost and packing. Sample artwork is supplied, but the most important models are the ones your children design themselves during play. The large number of components helps to give children maximum scope to express their creative ideas. The models shown are examples and may need components from more than one pack. As Cleversticks contains small parts creating a risk of choking it is unsuitable for children under 3 years of age.
