Who is this game good for?

- Primary school children of all ages seeking to have fun whilst developing their tripod grip strength for handwriting
- Fun for families from age 3 to 103!
- Children with dyspraxia and dysgraphia will find this game enormously helpful to improve their grip strength
- Any child currently using a pencil grip in school to aid their handwriting
