The 8 games were developed by Randi Bienniek, a child psychologist, self taught artist as well as the mother of triplets! Randi spent 20 years working as a school psychologist for elementary, middle and high school children. With these novel games, she brings her remarkable insights into child development and creativity, making each of the activities fun and challenging for kids.
The games are designed to develop visual memory, matching skills, reading skills and fine motor skills for young children, but are fun for all ages to play. Speech pathologists and early literacy educators have been using the toys in their therapy sessions to promote discussion of the dog characters and to develop reading skills. The cards that many of the games revolve around are based on real life dogs, and include their unusual canine stories and careers.

Each of the games is based on classic play patterns and is designed to last approximately 15 minutes, providing hours of quiet as well as some high action entertainment.

The cards are durable and come in their own plastic carrying case that is easy for little hands to open and close. The lid to the package is attached by the handle, a heavy duty grosgrain ribbon, so pieces are more likely to stay together.
