Learning Resources: Ruff’s House- Review and Giveaway

Finding toys that are educational AND fun can seem like a daunting task, unless you know where to look. Learning Resources has some fantastic Educational Toys that are fun and inviting. I guarantee you your child is going to want to play with these toys, and they will be learning while they do. We received the Ruff’s House game. I knew it would be a hit with Mikey because anything to do with Puppies will draw him in like a moth to the flame. He has a one track mind and puppies are on it. Kaia is not necessarily exclusively into puppies like Mikey but they are of interest. What really got Kaia into this game was the game itself. A hands on game that is colorful, tactile, and fun was just what she needed. She instantly got the idea of the game and set to work finding all the matching bones. For her I let her game at a bit of a harder level. She had to pick a bone pull it out and then feel inside to find the matching texture some are easier then others trust me. For Mikey we let him pull them all out and match as he went. The entire time he held Ruff in one hand saying “Puppy” lovingly while trying to find the perfect Doggy Bone for Ruff. This is absolutely a phenomenal Game for at home or in the classroom either way your Kiddo is going to learn and have fun while doing so.
