Rated 5 out of 5Â by MegEBK Love these Lacing Cards!
I used these in the Montessori classroom I worked in, as well as with my daughter at home. Great quality and lovely assortment of animals!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by somethingnoonehaschosen I would recommend with a warning
This is a fun game for children and they really enjoy the creative way the can lace. The laces are long enough that there is more than enough to make your own patterns with the stitching. My warning with the activity is that the boards are not sanded smooth enough so when the laces go through the holes, they become snagged. It didn't take long for the laces to look quite ragged. With that said, if you don't mind replacing the laces, the boards will last a long time and bring lots of hours of entertainment to even the smallest child.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by WrestlingWife06 Excellent for fine motor development
These lace-up animals are a fantastic way for toddlers to practice their fine motor skills. I don't plan on using the "trace" feature, as the shapes are so rounded that I don't think it would make much of an animal on paper. But I purchased this set for lacing, not tracing, so I'm very happy with the product. Even if your little one doesn't "get" the idea of threading the string around the perimeter, one hole after the next, any kind of threading will be beneficial for little fingers. Recommend!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Stay at home mom of three Awesome concept, super cheap materials
I was as excited as my four year old when he received this as a gift on Christmas. He loves doing things with his hand and I love him playing with actual toys instead of sitting in front of the tv all day. The box says that they are wooden and sturdy. They are "wood", like super thin pieces of wood pressed together and the holes that you lace through splinter and tear up the yarn as you pull them through. I tried sanding the holes with a dremel and the pieces still splinter because they are just pressed together, barely held together. My son gets frustrated when he tries to pull the yarn through but it keeps getting caught by the splinters. Needless to say, this toy is trash and he will continue playing with my cardboard lacing cards that have held up longer than these "wooden panels" even after 20 years and my siblings and cousins and daughter and son has played with them.
