I'm 28 and bought this for sensory reasons (SPD) and it's also fun just to fidget with while reading or doing something where my hands aren't occupied. I always have it with me, either holding onto or in my pocket.

The texture is gummy-like, with nubs for extra sensory input. I can't stand light touch, so this toy is perfect for me.

I tried pulling the Tangle apart because I saw someone do it to their Tangle on Youtube. But instead of just easily popping apart like in the video, mine broke and it couldn't be put back together because the connector piece broke off inside the other piece. I was very disappointed that I managed to break it so soon after receiving it.

I contacted Tangle Creations and told them that it broke and they sent me a new one for free. Wow. I'm very impressed with their customer service. When I received the new one in the mail, I again tried pulling it apart and it did pull apart without breaking this time, but it only worked on one of the links, not all.

So the product itself is great. Customer service is great. Just don't try pulling it apart with too much pressure because it WILL break if you have to use excessive force. I wish Tangles would come apart more easily without breaking.

UPDATE:
I still like this Tangle Therapy, but I like the Tangle Relax Therapy version even better. It twists more easily and is smaller so it's easier to fit in your pocket.

The twistable hand therapy toy has been helpful for my son, who has autism. It gives him something to do with his hands so that he may be redirected from his stims or inappropriate behaviors.

When I received it, I can't stop playing with it!

Here's what I like about it:
- the material is really good. It has clear rubber texture covering the actual plastic tubes. This makes it non-slippery and very easy to play around even with one hand bec it wont easily fall off of your hand. Very good grip!
- the joints were strong enough to hold the pieces in place. pulling it apart won't be easy - which is a good thing because you dont really want it broken apart most of the time (unless for other purposes)
- the size is big enough for my hand (adult hand). when fully curled up, i can completely grasp it.
- I find this more interesting to play with when I am a bit busy and thinking or reading as compared to bucky balls (magnet balls). With this, you dont have to look at it and just let your hands play with it. you can be reading seriously and not notice that your hands are playing with it unconsciously. With magnet balls, it's not that comfortable to play around with your hand and you have to look at it bec the intention mainly of that is to form a specific shapes/forms so it needs your attention. But with Tangle, you can just let your hands do the playing while your mind is onto something else.
- I smelled it after playing with it for two days (after receiving it) and I was surprised - it smells good!! I haven't even washed it yet!
- I can feel the effect of it for my hands. I felt that my hands were exercised throughout the day! I even think this is better my hand grips that I crunch with my hands. When you play with it, your fingers will move to different directions and it will really have a good 'workout' - especially after holding your mouse for quite sometime. This will be more effective if you play with it with only one hand and try to roll the Tangle all over your hand in different directions.
- very useful when browsing internet - right hand on the mouse, left hand on your Tangle. The right hand will be jealous though..
- If you focus on it and try to think of a specific form that you want, it can be quite challenging as well and very stress relieving. My officemates are jealous when I brought it to my offfice. hahaha!

Things that I wish for it to improve:
- color - I hope the colors are more vibrant or there are different color options. The colors are quite pale especially with that clear rubber around it. But this is only my personal choice.

**i have submitted some photos of my Tangle.

I bought this product to help sooth my nerves when I was quitting smoking. I ended up with a whole collection of tangles because it is just so relaxing. I work in an office and before you know it my whole office was at their desk playing with a tangle (even the non smokers). It somehow releases any tension you might feel, it's hard to explain. You pick it up and can't put it down. You just have to try it for yourself. If you need help kicking the nicotine habit you really should give this a try! Keep on in you car, at you desk, on the coffee table!!!

I was somewhat doubtful when I ordered the Tangle. I had thumb reconstruction surgery three months ago and need to strengthen my hand and regain the use of my thumb. Well, it does work! The Tangle is fun to play with, easy to carry around, and improves finger dexterity.

I got this for my teenager who just has to have something to fiddle with. She was constantly popping remote covers on and off or randomly tormenting an innocent trinket, but the texture and motion of this little toy seems to give her figiting hands what they need. She's happy, I'm happy.

The Tangle Therapy is great for those with fidgety hands. Use while reading, watching TV, playing cards, etc. Has a calming effect and becomes addictive. Once you get one, everyone will want to play with it. Not for kids as it can be pulled apart if misused.

I am a 24 year old female with sensory integration disorder. This has caused my compulsive hair pulling so I need something else to provide me with stimulation. I really like this little toy since it feels "interesting" (other SID sufferers will know what I'm talking about!), keeps me occupied, and I can carry it with me in my bag everywhere I go. Love it!

I bought this for my grandfather who has advanced Alzheimer's. He enjoys fiddling with it. It is pleasant to handle and can be manipulated easily. It is not so obviously a child's toy as other items suitable to his mental level. He wants to fiddle with things, especially when agitated, and using the Tangle Therapy gives him an outlet to do that. This is a positive gadget requiring no learning and with no associated "right" or "wrong" outcomes. An even larger size Tangle Therapy would be helpful for this application, as small items easily disappear when lost or hidden by some sufferers. This may be useful in any stage of the disease; if not immediately, perhaps when introduced again in later phases.
