A traditional string game where brightly coloured cord is used to create a range of amzing shapes. Buy 2 and Save £1.00!
Cat's Cradle is a traditional string game that has been played around the world for thousands of years. It does not appear that this game has a particular origin but was developed independently by many cultures around the same time. This string game allows the player to form lots of different shapes, dictated by how you position your fingers and where the string eventually goes when you are positioning your fingers!
It is a great game for children to learn as it requires dexterity, concentration and patience but is lots of fun to play! The cat's cradle toy can be played by oneself or with friends and whilst you commonly use your hands to form the shapes, it can be lots of fun to use toes, knees and elbows as well!
A booklet containing instructions for a wide range of shapes is included.
A lovely traditional game that will provide lots of fun for children of all ages and is also educational as it is a great means of developing childrens dexterity skills. This traditional toy makes a great stocking filler or Christmas tree gift, and is also the perfect little additional present to accompany a larger gift.
