Product Description:

My dad always says, "Busy hands are happy hands." Now I know why! When I discovered Cat's Cradle at my cousins' house, I couldn't put it down! Five string manipulation games are presented. It was so much fun I just had to play it until I could do all five by memory. It includes a sturdy, tie-dyed loop of colorful string that's just the right size! Enjoy!

Publisher Description:

This classic activity book includes traditional Cat's Cradle techniques and bonus instructions to show you how to make string figures like Jacob's Ladder, The Eiffel Tower, and Witch's Broom. With the clearest directions around and a tie-dyed loop of string to go with them, all you need is your fingers. We were the original Cat's Cradle book with string, and, with more than 4 million copies in print, we've still got it all tied up. Comes with:36 page book, loop of multicolored string.

Classic game that I want my kids to have a knowledge of. Tactical to play with at a family holiday party. A good tool to teach kids to read instructions and practice something. Also something that they can perform and be proud of.

Great stocking stuffer
This brought me back to my childhood. I have it to my 8 year old son for Christmas. He caught on really quick and mastered all the challenges within a week. He and I have had fun doing the game together. Great stocking stuffer.

The string on this is perfect size and "locks" in the string figures well. If you remember any of this from your youth...you wouldn't need this book. This book is for people who don't know how to do the basic items listed on the front...they give it to you in a step-by-step pattern which is easy to understand. I knew these already, and was hoping they had other "string" tricks than listed on the front...I should of read the information better. But, the string alone is awesome!

My daughter (now 11) has enjoyed the Cat's Cradle book and string for the last 4 years I feel that following the steps in the right order and having the shape come out correctly really improves a child's self-confidence and memory skills My daughter easily memorized all of the cat's cradle manipulations in a short period of time and "wowed" our relatives This is a fun interesting way to use your hands and your mind We highly recommend it
