They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Well, in this case it was the mother and the father.

We are the proud parents of two very active young boys. Our oldest has always been exceptionally agile, with amazing gross motor skills. In fact, when he was only 18-months-old, he tried to “escape” from our home by climbing a shoe rack in our garage and pressing the “open door” button! That said, though, he also use to struggle when it came to focusing in school. It was hard for him to sit still and concentrate for long periods of time. We decided to experiment at home, and keep him moving during his homework and study times.

...after researching a lot, we had an A-HA MOMENT...we realized our son is a KINESTHETIC LEARNER!!  Next, we searched to find non-disruptive tools he could use while he was actually in class, but nothing was quite right. We decided to create something for our son and fidgety children like him. After almost two years, and lots of trial and error and testing, KINNEBAR™ was born. And with it, children, including ours, are obtaining fantastic results.
