    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Aspergers
    "One of my daughter's behavioral issues is OCD which manifests as Trichotillomania (she twirls and pulls out her hair, to the point of baldness). This kind of toy gives her something else to do with her hands when stressed or bored :)"

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Learning Disabilities, Traumatic Brain Injury
    "The Tangle Toy will help my son utilize both hands during play, which right now he only really uses his left hand. We also use the Bilibo toy to help my son with his spatial recognition and play. The Bilibo is good to let him sit in, and then drag him around the room this way he uses his core muscles to keep from falling out of the seat. We are using it as a way for him to stand on it and work on his balance, and I see us using it interactively with other toys as he gets bigger to run them underneath and around his Bilibo to incorporate it into his play. He is (actual age) 29 months old, but was born at 25 weeks, so he should be 26 months old. He is doing great for the most part, but has some developmental delays and it appears he may have some minor CP. "

    "Used to assist an adult with Dementia."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Mental Retardation, Sensory Integration Disorder, Speech & Language Delay
    "This individual does not like to be touched but seeks out items that are visually and tactile inviting to him. He has to have something in his hands at all time. By giving this to him, he is less likely to play with the seatbelt on his wheelchair. He has broken his nose several times by rocking in the wheelchair and unlocking his seatbelt. We are therefore encouraging him to use his hands in a more beneficial way."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Aspergers, Sensory Integration Disorder
    "Entertains while waiting in line. Great for sensory intergration disorder--has a comfortable feel. My sitter felt it was good for her wrists, as she has carpel tunnel-- It helps strengthen them and losen them up. "

    Good for attention?

    I'm a college professor who bought Tangle Therapy to try out on my students--actually, to show to my colleagues so THEY could consider offering it to their students. It's great for manipulating and requires no skill...unlike knitting or other relaxing hand work. I recommend it for a student who is fidgety. It's quiet and portable, and the rubberized texture is nice. I wish it were a little thicker. I expected it to be on a larger scale.

    Review of Tangle Therapy
    Posted 9/23/2014 by STEFANIE FOERSTER

    I got this for my mom while she was sick in the hospital. She loves it. It is a stress reliving tool and something to fight boredom. She was showing all the nurses and the grandkids her cool toy.

    Fun fiddle
    Posted 6/10/2014 by Laura J

    My daughter has a tendency to twiddle with and pull out her hair. I get "fiddles" and "tangles" like this to help her keep her hands out of her hair. So far it seems to be helping, as long as she has it near her.

    Good fidget toy
    Posted 5/21/2014 by Kay McC

    Good product as a fidget for a primary child to adult. It feels good to the touch and moves easily. I like the fact that it does not make any noise as you move it. It is good for finger, wrist and forearm range of motion because there is no resistance when you move it. If you are a fidgeter it's kind of fun to play with.
