Twenty interconnected pieces pivot and rotate when squeezed or twisted. With its soft, pliable coating and distinctive raised tactile nodes, Tangle Brain Tools Think is easy to grip and manipulate. Its low impact motion relieves stress. Strengthens finger muscles. And restores motion to joints.
Consider stress relief. Who doesn’t need ways to unwind? Strengthening finger muscles is another benefit. Stronger muscles make everyday activities easier. Think coloring with crayons. Cutting with scissors. Or opening stubborn jars. Yet another benefit, improved joint motion makes everything we do with our fingers and hands easier. Signing requires both finger strength and mobility. Tangle is one way for students of sign language to gain both.
Not that’s not all, both Brain Tools Think and Tangle Therapy make ideal quiet fidget toys. Studies show that fidget toys not only relieve tension but also improve concentration and focus. Think and Therapy are different color combinations of the same Tangle. Latex-free.
A word about Tangles from teachers…
Teachers who use Tangles as a reward for children with autism report improved behavior: increased calm and the ability to cope with stressors that usually send them “over the edge” as well as an increase in skill acquisition. Tangles invite manipulation and reward play with improved concentration, spatial relations, and problem solving skills.
