It is super fun to create beautiful multi-colour designs and then undo them to start all over again! All you need to do is slide a lace into the special lacing-pen, press it into the self-locking slots on the board, and start tracing the designs you like to create some very special string art. This is a highly educational toy that develops artistic skills, dexterity and coordination while encouraging creative thinking. A great gifting idea. Suitable for ages 4+.
