Hello Funnybone Toys!! We wanted to give you an update on our daughter (who is seven and has autism, and loves your games!) She just at her new school in Florida (The Victory Center in Miami) and when she gets a bit more settled, I will be taking all three games to the school to share them, as they always like to know which materials (meaning: games, books, etc.) we use at home with any success. Melina LOVES Array and is certainly interested in Spectrix. Cubu is a bit over her head for now, but she’ll get there, in time! I am so happy to see that others are finding these amazing games to be helpful in the same ways our family (and home therapist) does. You know how a lot of games say “fun for the whole family”?? When you have a special needs child, that really isn’t always true. With your games… it IS!! Love them! Can’t wait to see what you think up next!! 🙂

Many thanks!
The Corbijn Family
