Jackson’s Review of StikBot: The Social Media Sharing Toy!

Hi everyone! Jackson here.

I thought it would fit to post a toy review on Black Friday…even though this was written on Wednesday…and I also got him on that day…never mind that, I am here to review Zing’s StikBot, aka the Social Media Sharing Toy!

First off, he has great posing ability, as he can have his (or her) arms, legs and head turned and positioned to your liking!

StikBot comes in many colors, but the one I got was the azure/turquoise blue version.

Of course, StikBot is intended for stop-motion, and works very well for it! In fact, I already made a stop-mo with him and he can be used very well! However, he fell over a lot, but maybe it was just the surface I had him on.

Next up is the fact that his hands and feet are suction cups, meaning many possibilities for places you can put him on in your videos/pictures.

There are pretty much infinite possibilities for this little fella, including that you can get him for a good price. He is only about $5 and some tax at my local Wal-Mart, meaning you can buy several of them for a reasonable price, or get the StikBot Studio ($10), which I will be reviewing in the future.

Size-wise, they are very-well sized for their price, as I just measured him, and he is about 3” tall.

Overall, whoever came up with this idea deserves a big raise, because StikBot is very awesome for private or shared stop-motion videos or even maybe a StikBot Selfie!

Thanks for reading this review, everyone! Happy Black Friday!

God Bless!


5 Social Media pitfalls to avoid

The world of social media has enveloped us all in some form or another

and with it permeating the world as it does, you’ve probably noticed that things we once would never talk about in polite company are fair game for sharing with 100’s of “friends”. Oversharing has become the norm. So I put together a quick list of things to be careful of when posting on any type of social media.    

 #1 Your Facebook page is public (allowing anyone to view everything about you).

#2 Posting on anything that you are going out of town (hello break-in)

#3 “Friending” your employees (do you really want to know their private lives and vice-versa)?

#4 Posting excessive “selfie’s” (sends quite the narcisstic message, don’t you think!)

#5 Sharing minutia (does anyone care that you had a smoothie for lunch?)

 Share with your kids!
