We use the String-Along Lacing Kit in our occupational therapy clinic and often recommend it to parents for home use. A colored string is loaded into the punch needle and then pushed into a hole on the board. The inset foam holds the string in place as the needle is moved to a new hole. As the string is connected from hole to hole, a picture is created. Holding the 'needle' is a great way to reinforce the correct way to hold a pencil, while doing a fun and engaging activity. While the basic kit can be used by children as young as three, the pattern cards provide extra visual perceptual challenge for older children. The String-Along kit is fun, quiet, and portable, making it a great travel activity. The board stands up well to being used multiple times. Designs are removed quickly and easily just by pulling one end of the string.

I purchased this one month ago for my classroom. The kids love it!! It is a little difficult for them to load the tool, but they figure it out.

The biggest problem is the tool. It is not strong enough to last ( ours broke abter two weeks and is now taped. I had a string along a few years ago and the tip of the tool split.

I requested a replacement tool from the company and was told they will not sell the tools separately.

Then they need to redesign the tools so they do not break.

There is a beautiful fiber art called "punch-needle" or "needle-punch". This children's activity teaches the method and format used in the adult fiber art. Great purchase if you want to teach a child punch-needle, or just for a fun activity. It's a little more difficult and sophisticated than lacing cards because you used a pen-like tool. It's a little difficult for a 3 and 4 year old, but my 6 year old granddaughter loves it!

Design Flaw! Other people have had success with this toy. I can't imagine how! The strings do not fit into the pen-like threader. I even tried to reverse the operation to see if the end of the thread would fit into the pen. It does not!
If you want to have a broken-hearted 7 year old on your hands, go ahead and try this item. The concept is fine, but IT DOESN'T WORK! I'm returning it with only the cellophane missing. Lucky for me AMAZON stands behind everything they sell.
