    Childhood Pasttime

    This was my favorite game when I was a young girl (15 years ago!!) and now my niece loves the game as much I do! Cat's Cradle is a definite timeless classic for young girls and the perfect opportunity for mother-daughter bonding!

    Great birthday gift!

    I bought this for my 9 year old niece's birthday and she loved it! She really enjoyed learning how to make all the string figures but most of all she loves being able to show off to her friends lol. I definitely recommend this for younger girls!

    Timeless

    I loved this book when I was younger and so I bought it for a friend's daughter who just turned 9, and out of all the presents she got this was the one she "played" with first. It's fun for kids and adults alike. It's a great way to keep little hands busy.

    un très bon livre

    Ce livre est très bien illustré. C´est un livre pour débutant qui m´a donné confiance en moi. Il a très peu de figures: l´échelle de Jacobs, la Tour Eiffel, la tasse et sa soucoupe et le balai de la sorcière. Les explications sont claires.
