Comments about Ruff's House Teaching Tactile Set:

This is a great toy set! My son is 2 and we received it for a review. He loves playing with the little doggie and is fascinated by all the different bones. It's perfect for practicing counting and colors, and great for keeping young children entertained.

    Comments about Ruff's House Teaching Tactile Set:

    Imagine you are four years old. Ruff's House is full of secrets from the minute you open the box. The ten rubber bones are perched on the doghouse roof. Remove the plastic from the ten bones and you discover that the bumps are different on each pair of matched colors. Remove the plastic wrap from the doghouse and you find a doggie door made of black flexible rubber. You must reach inside - it simply calls to you. Your hand touches softness and you pull out Ruff, the puppy you always wanted (that doesn't tear up shoes), plus ten more bones! As the teacher, I'm looking at this toy thinking of all the different educational games I can play with the kids - sorting and counting and matching. Sorting by colors, counting by ones and two, and matching by texture. A wonderful toy!! I received this toy at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

      Comments about Ruff's House Teaching Tactile Set:

      My oldest son loves playing with their new game. He caught up to it pretty fast too! The way we play it is we put 5 of the rubber bones inside the house while we hold the other 5 in our hands. We randomly choose a bone and we let him see it, hold it and touch it. Once he is ready he'll stick his hand inside the house and let him find the bone he has in his hand. He finds it quite rewarding to find the right bone!

      We also use the soft bones the same way. And just once have we had both rubber and fabric bones in the house. It went OK. Boy decided to be sneaky and peak inside the house!!

      The boys also play together….throwing the rubber bones down the hall!! And they take turns!!
