What our team of testers said

- Encourages multi-sensory exploration and perception
What our experts think
A fun, tactile puzzle toy that enhances the traditional puzzle with an engaging texture matching game. It promotes multi-sensory exploration – the children enjoying using these skills to find the different animals. Games like this also encourage discussion and vocabulary building when children are asked to describe different animals and textures.
We liked that the puzzle offered a different element, but felt that it was too simple for the suggested age range of 2-4 years; it is more suited to younger children due to the simplicity of the actual puzzle. We also felt that this puzzle would be particularly good and accessible for children with a sensory impairment.
