Develops Tactile Discrimination in Children

Great For Visually Impaired And Elderly


There are certain toys which are considered niche toys. Toys which are geared for a small segment of the populous. Although many people think this falls into that category, textured dominoes are not just for visually impaired people!

You can use Guidecraft's Texture Dominoes to play a regular game of dominoes; but instead of matching numbers you're matching colored circles which happen to have their own unique texture. And you can also use texture dominoes to help children develop tactile discrimination and visual perception.

To develop tactile skills there are many games that can be played with this wonderful set, including playing a game of dominoes solely by the sense of the dominoes in a bag or box, have the child remove one domino to start. Have them feel the domino. Each color has a different texture. Then ask them to place their hand back in the bag or box and find another domino which feels the same as one end of the one they selected. If they pick the right one by touch, they will know it right away when the color matches too. Lay the domino at the end of the first one just like a regular dominoes game. Then they need to find a domino that feels the same as one of the ends, and so on.

Of course this game is also suitable for sighted and visually impaired children to play together without any modifications.

The set includes 28 wood dominoes and a wood storage tray.

For ages 3 and up.
