Prime Line's Tangle Toys Have Educational Value as Brain Tools in Classrooms
Inspired by educators' search to locate fidget-friendly toys that engage students' brains and imaginations, Tangle toys from Prime Line, based in Bridgeport, Conn., have become Tangle Brain Tools for the classroom.
Contrary to the notion that children learn best by sitting still and listening, current brain research on how kids learn and remember clearly shows the human brain learns best when the body is allowed to move as it assimilates information. By allowing children to hold and manipulate a Tangle during listening times and lessons, their ability to understand, process, retain and use information will soar.
Children and adults challenged by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) gain the greatest benefit from the fidget to focus principle achieved with Tangle. Fidgety students who are allowed to play with Tangles or doodle while listening to an instructor are better able to listen and retain information than if expected to keep still.
A Tangle is a series of 90-degree curved sections, jointed together and able to pivot at each joint. It can be twisted and snapped into different shapes and forms. They appeal to children of all ages and are easily incorporated into games and activities in the classroom.
"The Tangle Junior Puzzle is extremely popular with educators and we are proud to be the exclusive supplier of this and other Tangle items to the promotional products industry," said Jeff Lederer, president of Prime Line. The Tangle Junior Puzzle is available in a variety of colors and with imprinting on each ring at no additional charge.
In addition to the Tangle Junior Puzzle, Prime's Tangle line includes a Jumbo Tangle, stress relievers, and a USB hub. These items may be viewed at www.primeline.com/tangle.
