    Great supplement to kids in OT June 2, 2012
    Reviewer: Rhonda  
    My kids have autism and this involves small motor delays and an inability to follow directions. This game addresses both of these deficiencies in a fun way. The kids find it challenging but enjoyable and we use it as a casual game at the coffee table, not a part of their regular curriculum, so they feel it's just a family fun activity and don't get too stressed over it. I would recommend it to other parents.

    Knot So Fast! Review by Spell Outloud January 9, 2012
    Reviewer: Maureen from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    There are several ways to play this game--which is a big plus. You can pick what works best for your group of players.

    Several times over the week I caught all three of my older kids sitting at the kitchen table practicing making these knots.

    Our family enjoyed playing this game. It was challenging and a little nerve-wrecking to try to complete the knot before the timer runs out. I like that there were different levels of knots, which made it an even playing field for the whole family to play. As a bonus, we learned a practical skill. Besides playing this game at home, I can see Scout groups, Keepers/Contenders of the Faith etc. using it to practice for a knot badge. I know we'll be pulling this out to play again and again.

    Knot So Fast December 27, 2011
    Reviewer: Penny from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    When Timberdoodle contacted me about reviewing Knot So Fast, I was intrigued. A game of knot making??? The autism-therapy-mom in me became excited with the possibiities.

    A game like this one could be the background activity for a list of developmental and relationship objectives, for speech and communication, for fine motor work, for motor planning, for plain 'ol fun.

    I like the texture of the ropes. They shape easily and unknot just as easily.

    One of our developmental objectives has been to give our girl opportunities to copy our meaningful actions, where she is responsible for focusing her attention on the right things to create a positive outcome - showing her how to tie a knot is one way to do that. She gets developmental practice and learns to tie different knots at the same time.

    In addition to being a family game, I think that Knot So Fast would be a workbox activity (one new knot with one rope in a box); a great travel game (I'd leave the little hourglass timer at home). Speech therapists, occupational therapists, professionals who work with students on the autism spectrum would have fun with clients while working on therapy goals within the context of a game. Knot So Fast could be a neat gift for your favorite OT or autism therapist.

    Knot So Fast! Review by Bacon Tidbits December 13, 2011
    Reviewer: Amanda from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    Knot So Fast is a clever game packaged in a cylinder, which I love!  No more stacking board game boxes that get crunched flat in no time.  It's easy to store, and easy for the kids to pack back up.  I love how portable and small the game package is as well.

    For the first couple days, our boys ages 8 and 9 just practiced the knots using the demo cards.  When they felt confident enough, they began to play it as a game using the directions.  How ingenius!  This game is pulled out usually twice a day, and is a big hit with our oldest kids, and will be for our girls in the years to come as well.

    There are several variations to the game, which is nice too.  Also, one might fear that the ropes might end up a tangle of knots... not so with these ropes.  They are just the right size for young hands (and old hands) and are easily untied over and over again.

    Parents enjoyed it more October 3, 2011
    Reviewer: Jennifer D. from Colorado  
    It think the overall concept of this game is really great but it did not interest our 2 boys. We (the parents) pulled it out as we were getting ready to learn to sail and needed to learn some knots. But as one other reviewer mentioned there are only pictures of the knots but no instruction on how to tie them. So my husband found "and app for that" and we were still able to use the ropes and learn.  I will say that having 3 boys requires all toys/games to be really well made. This game is not well made. The ropes frayed and the main piece that you tie the ropes onto broke. And this was the parents playing with this NOT the kids.
