Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a "standard" set of tangrams, the same set of shapes that have been around since at least the 80's when I was a kid--I say this because there are a few different standards out there now, with different shapes that won't likely work with the standard silhouette-style puzzles out there. They're nice quality and definitely a step up from plastic or some of the multi-colored painted sets. The box is about 6 inches wide, a good size (not too small).
These look a little better than some of the pictures suggest, with an attractive, uniform wood stain (some of the pictures make the parts appear slightly different colored). We specifically wanted a set of Tangrams that were all the same color because I feel that's part of the fun, not having wild colors distract from trying to fit the pieces into a sillhouette.
They're for our 5 year old, but immediately my wife and I got sucked into trying to build a cat from a silhouette we found on the Internet...
QUALITY of the make and the amount of fun is 100%
made beautifully, arrived in a timely manner; thanks!!
