HugMatch is an interactive toy for 2-5 year old visually impaired and non visually impaired children. It stimulates the senses that develop at this age. Children are entertained by toys made with different fabrics and toys that can make sound. They will learn how to communicate by touching and hugging HugMatch, which provides a variety of textures for the children to feel.
With this toy, children will learn how to socially interact, communicate their opinion, compromise and cooperate with each other. Providing an interactive environment will give them a chance to create their own rules, which is a better way to nurture their use of imagination.
