Practice Hand Dexterity With Thinkfun's Knot So Fast From Brain Fitness


Knot tying is a valuable life skill and a great spacial reasoning workout, flexing mental muscles and fine motor skills.
I was a girl scout when I was in Grade 4 and then had a Girl Scout subject when I was in high school for P.E. We were taught hand signals, smoke signals and how to tie knots. When I received the Knot So Fast game, I reminisced back to my elementary and high school Girl Scout subjects but I realized that after more than a decade, I've forgotten the knots I've learned and memorized back then.
The Knot So Fast game by Brain Fitness is a very good way to practice my hand dexterity as well as learning all the knots over again. The game is very simple and the goal is to copy and tie the knot the way it's drawn in the booklet.

The Knot So Fast Game includes the following:
- 40 Challenges With Instructions & Fun Facts
- Rope
- Metal Tying Ring

I was quite excited to try tying the rope to see if I can do the knots properly. The challenge/instruction booklet didn't really tell me the step-by-step instructions on how to tie the knot. I had to figure them out myself which was very fun and challenging. There are fun facts at the bottom of the page on what the knot is about and each time I turn the page, the knots become more and more difficult than the previous one.

The rope included has a nice blue color and is durable and high-quality. The ring included is thick and a bit heavy. What I liked about the Knot So Fast game is that I was able to do the knots by myself. I loved how I had to figure out how to do the knot and then doing it over again to try tying it faster than my previous attempt.

I love this game and I love how simple it is. There are nor batteries required and with only 3 materials included in the game, I can take this along during long trips. :)
