Perhaps the world's oldest toy, the stick appears in countless adult, children, and animal games. Sticks come in handy during arts and crafts, roasting marshmallows, or writing your name in the sand. Using their imagination, children can turn sticks into magic wands, brooms, swords, or sabers. And sticks are ideal for a game of fetch. "Sticks are not only possibly the oldest toy, they're possibly the best!" wrote the National Toy Hall of Fame.
