An inviting tactile material that challenges children's sense of touch on both hands and feet. At the same time, it develops the ability to describe sense impressions verbally. The tactile discs, made of nice-to-touch rubber, contain five different tactile structures, each with its own color. Each of the five tactile structures can be found on a large disc for positioning on the floor, as well as on a small disc that the child will be able to hold in his/her hands.
In terms of playing, the discs offer innumerable possibilities ranging from a fundamental sensing of the tactile structures to blindfold games based on memory and recognition. The games can be adjusted, so that they fit the child's age.

- Small Discs dimensions are approx. 4.25 inches

- While these are stepping stones, they can easily be used as 'plate'-like items randomly placed around the home where a child can feel the different textures. I like to line them up, and watch my son ooh and ahh as he feels the softness of one, the grittiness of another, and yet still the ridged rubber of another! His father calls them 'coasters for giants' ha ha~ Love them! Great stimulation! Great fun! Indoors and out!
