Timberdoodle's review
Amazing Tool for Teaching the Alphabet
Because younger children learn best through hands-on activities, the more they can do, the faster they will learn. The Purpllinker is our most portable tool for teaching your children the alphabet.

Builds Small Muscle Memory and Fine motor Skills
Looking much like great-grandpa's old-fashioned carpenter's ruler, but smaller, softer, safer, and easier to maneuver, the child-friendly Purpllinker, with its seven arms, will hold its shape, allowing your child to create the entire alphabet. By forming letters with the Purpllinker, your child will be building small-muscle memory and fine motor skills.

Anything Your Child Can Imagine
Made of lightweight ABS plastic arms and aluminum rivets, the Purpllinker can also be used to make numbers, geometric forms, swords, snakes, and just about anything your child can imagine. Complete directions for forming letters and numbers are included with every Purpllinker. For ages three and older.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 PreK Curriculum Kit!

    Purpllinker: A Timberdoodle Review
    "...What I think about the Purpllinkers: I really like them! I think they are a wonderful educational and theraputic tool for young children. It is so important for young children to work on strengthening their small muscles in their hands. This helps tremendously when it is time for them to work on scissor skills and handwriting. I recommend the first few times your child plays with it, that you assist them. After a few times of playing with them, they should have no problem doing it on their own...Overall, this is a very fun tool! One that can have many positive impacts on childhood physical and cognitive development..."

    So cool! September 27, 2015
    Reviewer: Bianca  
    Both of my children love all the shapes and letters you can make with this. If your child is hands on this is definitely for you!

    great product September 7, 2014
    Reviewer: eileenc  
    this is a great product. a little challenging for a 4 year old to make letters and shapes as the patterns recommend. it is a little hard to make the shapes because it is a little tight around the hinges, but i am hoping that may ease with more usage. otherwise, my girls love using it and it is a great tool for counting as well.

    A consistently favorite toy August 5, 2014
    Reviewer: Kate S.  
    I can't say enough good things about the Purplinker. We bought one for our son a couple years ago and after our daughter turned 2, we realized how much she enjoyed his. They both have one and they use them for everything--swords, letters, silly play. And they are fantastic in the car. And made in the USA to boot. Get one!

    Perfect for Car Trips August 1, 2013
    Reviewer: Richly Blessed  
    This is similar to a tool used in drafting. My children were always drawn to their grandfather's drafting tools. When I saw this I knew it would be a perfect substitute and I was right. The kids make all kinds of shapes with it. I have to guess what they've made which isn't always easy, but they love it. They also make letters with it if they want to.

    Not as great as anticipated January 16, 2013
    Reviewer: Haley  
    I was super excited about the purplinker. My son has sensory issues and is very hands on. Unfortunately, he gets frustrated with trying to make letters with it. Additionally, the shapes code is printed on the box. I didn't notice this until it was too late, and I haven't been able to find the guide online. My son still plays with it a lot, but as a teaching tool I was rather disappointed.
