Ten rods and strings novelty

As you slide the rods up and down along the strings, you see the number of strings varying. The puzzle expert James Dalgety has made the point that, when the strings become tangled up, it is quite a puzzle to sort them out again. Item N2732 has a different colour scheme but is the same novelty.
