Rated 5 out of 5 by Erika from Wonderful for Speech-Language practice My kids (ages 3 and 4) just received this game for Christmas. It is by far my daughter's (age 4) favorite gift. She has mixed expressive-receptive language disorder along with some other special issues including impulsiveness and difficulty with focusing on tasks. This game has so many benefits for her. So far we have only used one variation of play, being the "puppy hunt" which involves us hiding the puppy and clues around the house leading her to the puppy. It is good for her receptive language development (her speech pathologist works with her on following multi-step directions, so this is a great way to reinforce that at home), and it helps her work on impulse control, as she must come to us for help on reading the clues and she must pause before moving onto the next thing and think about her next step. I can't wait to tell her speech pathologist about this game! The game is also very enjoyable for my 3 year-old, typically developing son. Both kids LOVE the plush doggies, and have their names memorized. I can't thank Melissa and Doug enough for making this game especially for all the therapeutic and developmental benefits it has for my special needs daughter. I will for sure recommend it to others with special needs kids, as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexis from Love it! Despite Melissa & Doug products being relatively expensive, I would say they are worth every penny. The kids absolutely love them and they are great quality. I bought this game today at the request of a child in our daycare and I am very impressed. The kids not only love how cute the puppies are, but the games are great for teamwork. Their favourite game right now is the game where you hide the puppies/clues but there are lots of other ones we have yet to explore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Buel from My great niece's favorite I have bought Christmas and birthday presents for many children for years. This year I knew my great niece, who is in preschool would be the toughest of the 17. But I bumped into Puppy Pursuit and just knew it was perfect. It was the first and best gift I bought out of about 50. She carries those puppies around everywhere and loves them dearly. This is a can't miss for a preschooler who like animals at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama to Sweet Wyatt from Awesome GAME!! This is an amazing game. My son got quite a few games for Christmas this year, and this is the most fun! It allows them to think, be patient, and have a LOT of fun. My son always gets teary eyed when it's time to stop playing. I'm sure the other Melissa & Doug games are just as awesome! Will definitely be getting more of these games!
