Description

Great fidget. Great price.

It’s a toy. It’s a puzzle. It’s a stress reliever. It’s a knot. And it’s just the right size for the palm of your hand. Twist it, turn it, shape it, and swivel it to quiet the brain, achieve tranquility, and relax. Sections can be pulled apart, separated, made into smaller “rings” or joined together with other Tangles for even more tangled fun and to increase finger dexterity. Assorted colors.

“I work with children with Autism, and it is difficult at times to motivate them to learn. While working with one child who had a particularly difficult time finding any reinforcement in anything, I tried some pieces of a Tangle Toy. The child was hooked. I thought, ‘Finally something that this child likes!’ However, what I found next was even more impressive. As I looked back on the data that I had, I noticed that there was a steady increase in skill acquisition starting the same week I started using the Tangle. I began using some with other children who had various issues (not as a treatment but as a reward). Many of them immediately took to them and I noticed a dramatic improvement in the children’s behavior over time. They were calmer and better able to deal with stressors that usually sent them over the edge. I soon found that the older and more advanced kids also loved them and were highly motivated by them. It held their attention and therefore helped them with their concentration, spatial relations and problem solving skills. I cannot praise this toy enough. It is simple, effective, safe and affordable.” – author unknown
