Reviews - What do our customers think?
complicated  Jan 1, 2008
I love the cultural variety, photos and stories of these string games. If your child has already done string games, or is older, this would be terrific! I bought this for my 6 year old, who is both very bright and very well-coordinated with her hands, but these require so many steps and are complicated enough to be quite overwhelming for her. Don't buy this for a young child!
Fun String Figures  Jun 10, 2007
This book in right in line with the Klutz tradition. Makes things simple and fun. It is clear and gives you good directions and a little background on each figure. They are pretty simple figures. I think it is relatively expensive if you compute the price per figure. The binding is particularly durable and the pages are heavy duty. The type of binding lets the pages lie flat which is very nice when your fingers are entwined in a figure. Other books in my collection have the regular glue binding and keeping them open can be a challenge.
Great little book  Oct 28, 2004
My daughter loves this along with the first one that was published. Hours of fun!
Great pictures, fun string figures--a good sequel  Sep 19, 2000
This book is a sequel to Johnson's "Cat's Cradle", which contained five string figures. This book has seven more, from around the world--Paraguay, Australia, Ghana, the U.S. (a Navajo string figure), New Guinea, Alaska, and Ireland. Each is accompanied by photographs of the children who taught Johnson the figures, and good detailed diagrams of how to make the figures.

The presentation is more spectacular than in "Cat's Cradle", but when you get down to it the figures are what counts, and these are no more fun than the first book. In fact, they're a little more difficult to learn. We bought this for our five year old daughter, who'd enjoyed the first book (despite one of the patterns being too difficult for her); she found this one much less interesting. I think an older child would like the extra details about the children in the different countries, however.

I'd recommend that you buy "Cat's Cradle" first. If you or the child you buy it for enjoys it, this is a good follow up gift, but it doesn't have anything as easy to learn and fun as Cup and Saucer or Witch's Broom, from the first book.

Cat's Cradle  Sep 3, 2000
I think the book had good instructions and it helped me understand how to make 4 or 5 new string figures. It was easy to read, and the pictures were very good. I would recommend this book for beginners who are learning to make string figures.
