Early American loom that can easily make a woven, knitted cord. These cords can be made with a hundred different fibers into bracelets and matching necklaces, headbands, hair ties, belts, coasters, placemats, doll rugs, kitty rugs, dog collars, ropes, and decorative pieces with beads. Great for homeschooling!

Mine are lathe turned from Ozark Mountain Cherry and Walnut. The mushroom shape fits the hand and the embedded loops make it easier to do. Includes a crochet hook to manipulate yarn and instructions. For additional instructions and ideas Google "french knitter".

A toy like this is easy to learn and builds eye/hand coordination, creative skills, and patience. Weavers achieve positive feedback and pride in their accomplishments. They can also experience the joy of making and giving gifts to others and perhaps sharing their skill with friends.

Easy to learn for 5 years and older. Grandparents and adults love to play too.

Not recommended for children under 3 years of age.

Beautiful, beautiful wood, very smooth. For my little one, string is short enough that getting the ball in the cup is in the realm of possibility -- which means excitement, instead of frustration. Really happy.
