JIX is a drinking straw construction game created by New York based visual artist and product designer Patrick Martinez. It is comprised of small modular elements that are specifically designed to allow standard drinking straws to be connected together. The JIX connectors have 2 different angles, obtuse and acute, which permit you to make basic two and three dimensional geometric shapes. You can get even more options by snapping two JIX connectors together and just letting your imagination run wild.
With JIX you can build everything from ambitious room-sized structures to intricate table-top sculptures, all using JIX connectors and drinking straws.
Children will find JIX to be a fun and educational toy.
The connectors come in flat grids which easily snap apart, intersect, and lock into place.
JIX comes with 125 connectors plus 250 transparent straws. (You can also use your own flexible 5.5mm to 6mm diameter drinking straws.)
