Furbles | ptolemy.co.uk “Furbles are the shape of things to come: this software is technology at its best and well worth the money.” John Dabell, TES Magazine Furbles started life as an idea for teaching statistics in an interesting way with children from KS1 to KS3. The original version was published in 2003 online, and its popularity spread. It has been downloaded and used over 20,000 times in the last five years.

If you are interested in purchasing the 2008 commercial version, then please visit the Sherston Software website.
