"I got this for my son who loves puzzles ...but the whole family has enjoyed playing with this and creating different patterns and shapes! We leave it on the kitchen table for everyone to take turns creating with it. I am ordering another one for my desk!"

"This is a fun gift that we got my 7 year old for Christmas. It really does stretch the brain! The quality is excellent and it sure keeps him engaged. I like it for the 5-10 minute exploration, transitions etc. As a teacher, I think it would be a good station in a classroom for the wiggly worm."
