Sew n Sew
This frustration-free lacing tool has been used for two decades to teach very young children basic lacing skills. Sew n Sews smooth-to-the-touch wooden block with slanted holes and its oversized wooden needle make it super-easy for tiny ones to develop the hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills needed not only for lacing but also as a pre-writing skill. Compact in size, the Sew n Sew makes an ideal traveling companion and inspires discovery while fostering valuable developmental skills your child will use for a lifetime.

    Easy to transport, great at keeping them July 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Phobo  
    I carry this in my backpack with me since it takes up so little space. All of my kids enjoy taking turns with this when we're out somewhere and we need to entertain ourselves quietly.

    Hours of fun! January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Emily, mom of 3  
    We got this for our two year old, but our four year old really enjoys it as well, and my 8 and 10 year old nieces have been seen playing with it, too! It is a fun sewing toy, fine motor skills activity for little ones, but also a great problem solving activity for slightly bigger kids. Our four year old enjoys the puzzle of getting the whole thing "unsewn" and has learned some good patience as well.

    Durable June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Coffee Sipper  
    I got this for my 1-year-old, but both of my toddlers play with this. It is durable, well made, and easy to use, but presents enough of a challenge that a child can play with it over and over again and get better at it. At first, it is good just for the child to hold and try to manipulate the "needle." Eventually, it will become easier for the child to thread the "needle" through the holes. This is how my 1-year-old plays with it. My 2-year-old can thread the "needle" through the holes and make simple patterns. A child who is a little more advanced can make patterns that are a little more complex. (I even enjoy playing with it occasionally!) The string is well-attached and can be tugged at without breaking. The "needle" is safe (not sharp) and meant for small children. This toy is great for taking places, and can be played with quietly.

    Sew 'N' Sew Review by Homeschool Circus January 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Lisa from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    Sew 'N' Sew is an intriguing toy that holds up even under the most rigorous chewing and dropping.  I love that there's no painted surfaces that can chip or "needle" to get lost.  My 20 month old needed some help getting started.  But after watching his siblings "sew", he had it down in no time.  This is one very durable learning toy that will be used for many hours!!!

    Timeless Toddler Toy October 24, 2011
    Reviewer: Bevin Wilder from Corinth, MS United States  
    My youngest had gotten into his sisters' lacing cards and was trying to put the lace through the hole, but it was just too small for him.  I remembered that I had a Sew N Sew put up for Christmas, but decided to get it out and see if he was interested yet.  I showed him the basic idea, and he was successful almost immediately and so proud of his work.  All morning he would come back to it and then come and show me what he had done.  The size is just right for little hands, the quality is excellent (no concerns over splinters or coming apart), and the chance to start working on fine motor skills at such a young age is priceless!
