Rating: 3 by Nancy, IL The textures were not obvious enough. I teach 2nd grade and am an educated adult and I had to look to see what the texture was supposed to be.I know you stated the size but I think they need to be bigger.
Rating: 5 by Elly, NJ Originally we got this one for the baby, who is almost a year old. But nobody could keep their hands off it! The box contained a booklet with games and it turned out to be a perfect (and educational) family game that could be enjoyed by all family members, including the baby. The baby, Smiles, loved touching, taking it in and out of the bag, mouthing and giving to us. The four year old was enjoying the competitive aspect of the games – let’s collect pairs, let’s match them by design, etc. What’s included? Pairs of different squares (felt, fur, silk, rubbery net, shiny reflective one, cotton, fleece, leather, a few others) that can be matched as a pair, or as a set of different materials, or even by the look: dots, stripes. And a storage bag. I wish the bag was a little roomier, but this is insignificant. Well worth it.
