Tangle, Jr. may look like regular toys but they are learning tools. Many children will focus better and absorb things more quickly if they have something to do with their hands. Tangles are a wonderful toy for children (and adults) to play with on trips in the car, on a plane or anytime. Tangle Jr. is a perfect way to relax. As it slips through your fingers and knots up in your hand, you can feel your body's tension release. You can play with Tangle wherever you are. Children (and adults) of all ages love to Tangle. It provides something to do during travel or quiet times. It stimulates your brain as it helps increase finger dexterity.
