Fun and educational for children with visual impairments who are haptic (touch) learners.

Spangle Tangle provides opportunities for learners to improve visual and tactile attention, communication, and creativity. Through specially designed activities, the learner develops motor, problem-solving, cognitive, self-care, social, and pre-braille skills. Plus, they get to have FUN!

Anyone can learn and have fun with the Spangle Tangle, but it is designed specifically for children who are blind and experience difficulty grasping and holding objects. The product includes the Tangle Stand, which is a support stand that allows learners to explore and play with the toy without it falling off a wheelchair tray, and three Tube Stands to use to play games and create sculptures. The Spangle Tangle is especially designed for children for whom haptic exploration may be their best — and perhaps only—way to gain information about their world.

Spangle Tangle Kit Includes
● 36 Spangle Tangle segments (4 bumps, 4 spirals, 4 tire treads, 4 alligator, and 20 smooth)
● 3 Plastic Tubes – short, medium, and tall
● 3 Tube Stands
● 1 Tangle Stand
● Spangle Tangle Guidebook, Large Print with CD-ROM (HTML, BRF, TXT, DTB)

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD Small parts. Not intended for children ages 5 and under without adult supervision.
