Kids love string games. And it’s so good for finger dexterity and cognitive factors like patterns and problem solving. Though we don't know which culture began playing string games -- or when -- we do know that the Cat's Cradle was first acknowledged in the 1700s and, since 1888, over 2,000 patterns have been recorded!

- One extra-long continuous cat's cradle string, perfect for up to four players.
- Eight classic string games like Cat's Cradle and Hand Catch, as well as string figures such as Witch's Broom, Parachute, and more.
- Easy-to-follow instructions and pictures for every trick, twist, and tie, you'll be a string wizard in no time
