Last week, I received a wooden tangram set from Monkey Pod Games. The tangram set and a set of puzzle cards come in a hinged, wooden box, approx. 8.5"x5"x1". My husband happened to be there when I opened the package. He took the game from me, ran his hand over the wooden box, opened and closed the lid, and exclaimed, "That's a NICE box." While this may mean nothing to you, I'm here to say that my husband is
This is a really nice set!
The box contains a set of wooden tangrams, cut 1/2" thick so as to make them easy to manipulate. The 50 puzzle cards feel really durable (perhaps they have a light plastic coating?) A silhouette of each shape--animal, people, or abstract--is shown on the front, with the puzzle answer revealed on the back.
While it makes a durable set for homeschool (my 4yo and 8yo have been playing with it!), I wouldn't hesitate to leave it available on the coffee table for guests to play. Such a high quality set would also make a great gift for a wide variety of ages.
Later today I'll be back to post a Giveaway for one of these beautiful sets!
Disclaimer: I received a review set. I tend to avoid reviewing items that I don't like. I really like this one. I get no monetary compensation from the company. If you order from Amazon, all commissions go toward foster care through Grace and Hope at no additional cost to you. THANK YOU!
