Does anyone know where I can buy the children's chopsticks they have in Wagamama?

I've had enough of grovelling at our local one for some spares to take home and wondering where I can buy some? Googled but getting nowhere. I will try local oriental supermarket but just wondered if anyone knows anywhere specific - online or Central London if possible. Thanks.

They're the ones that slot together at the top.

big chinese supermarkets in China town in Soho might or a Japanese shop in Oriental City in Colindale ( if that hasn't closed yet) - might do a mail order..or even Muji

Not sure of what you mean (never been to wagamama), but would something like these help?

Thanks MAS, I tried Oriental City but the place was practically empty and very run down, looks like it's closing down very soon. I suppose it's a trawl of Chinatown then.

Or these?

Thanks JackieNo, I saw those and might get them but the Wagamama ones are disposable wooden ones and they're flatter so a bit easier to use. Both school and nursery specifically recommend these as good for pincer grip pratice.

We got Rookie Stix at Sainsbury's. Also Kitch N Sync do them with animals on the top.

Thanks BibiThree but I particularly want the wooden ones that slot together. The plastic ones are narrower and more slippery. [fussy bitch/pedant emoticon]

That's fine, dd loves her animal ones, can't eat with them for toffee, (she's only 3) but bless her, she tries hard. If you get any luck post again so I can get her some wooden one too?

Thanks and good luck!

Ooh - Wooden ones?

have looked on Wagamama website in their shop and no chopsticks - you'd think they'd sell them !

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 12-Jul-08 13:53:40

They are called Klik Snacksticks and are supplied by a co called W K Thomas & Company. email sales@wkthomas.com

I think you might have to buy 1000 as they are catering suppliers www.wkthomas.com/

Guess who had lunch at Wagamams?

Sorry, been out all day. Thank you very much everyone for all the replies but bloody hell most of all palava for going well beyond the call of duty - I think I owe you lunch grin! Never would have worked out that they were called snacksticks - not sure about getting through a 1,000 in a lifetime though.......

not wagamama, but bamboo and similar principle - should work?

I happen to have found a supplier but it's in China. If anyone courageous enough to try...
