What is it

Six large two-piece animal puzzles that have tactile elements.  Children will need to use touch to identify the correct pieces in the bag… a game and a puzzle combined!

What our team of testers said

"This is soft for the sheep." - Boy aged 3

"That was fun, can I play again?" - Girl aged 2.5

Skills Developed

  • Provides opportunities to compare different textures
  • Practices logic and problem solving skills
  • 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.
