I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and work with children of varying ages and skill sets. I bought this game in hopes of using it while working with my younger students and my students with Autism; this game has been a huge hit! I love how it provides the opportunity for communication and new language such as "smooth," "bumpy," "soft," and "hard."
My son uses this toy in his occupation therapy at least once a week. I figured that if a professional chose this toy as a tool to provide therapy to my son then it must be worth while and i bought it myself. My son loves all the textures and it keeps his attention pretty well. His additional time using this toy is increasing his proficiency using it even at therapy, and i am happy that i made this purchase.
The textures are fluffy, furry, rough, bumpy, smooth, ridged, grooved, woven, silky, and spiky. I like spiky, bumpy, smooth, fluffy, and silky, but don't think the other ones are very useful adjectives. I like that the house is made of plastic and the opening flaps are rubber and not too flimsy. The bones in the middle are supposed to be furry but they are actually a different color and the same material as the mini dog itself. I think "furry" should have longer hair (if that makes sense). It's a cute toy but a little disappointed with variety.
