Comments about Educational Insights String-Along Lacing Kit and Pattern Cards:
Gave this to my daughter 2 days ago, and she absolutely loves playing with it. She is excited to test what new patterns she can replicate. But I noticed that the pen now has a crack in the middle and I'm afraid it might break soon. Toy will be useless then. Is there any way to get buy replacement before the tears start flowing?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Hi MonaEmail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I think we may have an extra pen to send to you, to keep the tears at bay.

About Me Parent
My very, very active four year old son who does not like to play much on his own, loves doing these cards.Once I showed him how to do it , he sat for 30-40 mins doing the cards. Both with my help when he wanted to do the exact pattern. But he enjoyed making his own pictures as well. I would highly recommend this, even my 15 year old daughter picked it up and started doing it when she was watching a movie.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My daughter loved this! It has plenty of designs to keep your child busy.
Where are the instruction?????
from Houston TX
I consider myself to be an intelligent person. The 16 word instructions (of that, 3 words were "the") is just wrong. It may be "Easy to Use" if your instructions were a little more in depth. I would love to rate this product but I haven't been able to figure out how to use it. Did you get feedback from the public before your packaging was completed? They probably would have told you to be more specific.
Merchant response: Liz, we wish you'd left your email address so we could contact you! There should have been a 4 page instruction booklet included with this product - 7 detailed steps and lots of other information about how to use the kit. Please email email@example.com if you see this reply so I can send it to you!

Creative lacing and art practice

About Me Education Oriented, Parent, Thrifty
The product permits any pattern, but comes with several durable cardboard sample patterns. The colorful, thick laces are very durable, too. There are many colors, and there are 2 of each color to permit longer patterns.The "punch pen" isn't intuitive to use. [...] I can't remember how it is supposed to work. I keep getting the pen caught on the thread and not knowing how to pull the thread out without undoing the stitch. But it's still possible to punch the thread through without stringing the punch pen.I would like to use this product for teaching strokes for writing Chinese characters (like ABC sampler cross stitch of old), but I'm still working on developing patterns.
Merchant response: WOW! Chinese characters would be amazing! If you'd like to share the end result, please send an image to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, we'll review your feedback about the punch pen...
