Remember playing Cat's Cradle when you were little? I do! With my Grandma!

String games are one of the oldest games in human history, involving creating various string figures, either individually or by passing a loop of string back and forth between two or more players. Games can range from simple to complex, so practice and patience are required! Many parents carry string games along on trips, to restaurants, and visits with relatives as a way to pass the time and share tricks with their children.

So much fun!

My six year old son is in love with his strong game. I had no idea what a huge hit it would be. Such a wonderful, simple toy. Thank you!

String Games

My daughter loves the string games. It has been so fun to play and she even took it for show and tell at preschool. We accidentally washed ours in with a load of laundry and it came out pastel. Oh well still fun!

A lovely string for classic finger/ hand games

I stashed this little string in my purse when visiting my granddaughter. She was thrilled to find it and played quietly while the grownups talked.

I've been shopping from Sarah's

I've been shopping from Sarah's Silks since my daughter was born. Now I get to shop for my grandchildren and watch them play and have fun while developing their imaginations. I have always been thrilled with the quality of their products and service.
