Stick ManMeet Stick Man

Super power: Stick Man is a stick of many disguises and can transform himself in to lots of handy objects, from bows and swords to boomerangs! He’s the leader of The League of Super Sticks and he takes his role very seriously. He's always ready to help anyone who's in need (especially Santa!).

Stick man activity packMeet Super Stick Woman

Super power: Super Stick Woman can fly and carries an ivy lasso with her at all times. She's the brains behind the operation and often bosses the other team members about! She uses her lasso to capture the leagues opponents. (Top secret fact: she dyes her feathers.)

Stick man activity packMeet John Tree-volta

Super power: John Tree-volta distracts his opponents with his hypnotising dance moves – that way they can be captured by Super Stick Woman’s lasso or Stretchy Stick’s super stretchy limbs. He is the second in command of The League. He is also great at jumping thanks to the ‘spring’ in his hips!

Stick man activity packMeet Robin Wood

Super power: Robin Wood can turn himself into a giant tree to stop his opponents getting past him. He's also resistant to fire – a handy stick to have around in heated situations! His green outfit helps him to stay hidden amongst the many trees and leaves in the forest.

Stick man activity packMeet The Pink Ninja

Super power: Now you see her, now you don't! The Pink Ninja has the power to become invisible, so that she can sneak up on her opponents! She is also great at setting up traps. She once stopped a group of baddies by setting a trap of sticky tree sap.

Stick man activity packMeet Stretchy Stick

Super power: Stretchy Stick stretches his twiggy limbs to ensnare his opponents – and he’s a great climber too! He can make it up the tallest trees in a matter of seconds. When he's not on the job he likes taking naps high up amongst the leaves! (Top secret fact: he has a crush on The Pink Ninja.)
