The NEW Touch Game is available in Canadian specialty toy stores in time for Christmas. Winner of 11 Major Toy industry Awards this game is recognized as an innnovation in children's games.
Linda Stortz of Stortz & Associates Inc., the Canadian distributor for The NEW Touch Game, explains the game this way "The Touch, with its "spaceship" design, is an eye-catching, unique sensory game." Play is based on a child's sense of touch. The sense of touch is used to ÂrecognizeÂ one of 49 pieces inside a spaceship and match them to pictures on playing cards. A built in timer signals the end of a turn.
Linda Stortz explained ÂThe 20 theme cards have educational facts about each item on the reverse side. The concept is a simple one - to find, by touch, the items displayed on the card. Normal play for a child combines many senses and the game is unique because of the emphasis on the sense of touch.Â
The game can be played cooperatively when other players look through the observation window and help guide the player to the correct piece. It is recommended for 5 and up and has appeal for game players of all ages.
Linda Stortz stated that "Expansion packs are available for the game. With themes of African Wildlife and Farm Animals, these expansion packs appeal to home schooled families and educators for their specialized themes."
