We have yet to meet a child who doesn't love tangram puzzles, and this travel toy version is ideal for on-the-go fun! How it works: kids use the seven magnetic pieces to recreate the patterns provided, as well as designing their own creations. Tangrams are totally absorbing, and best of all, inspire creativity and problem-solving skills. This self-contained portfolio holds the puzzle pieces, a magnetized work surface, and 24 puzzles with solutions. Fits in a backpack. For ages 5 and up (but you'll want a turn, too). Based on ancient Chinese puzzles, tangrams build spatial skills and concentration as well as creative problem-solving skills Travel Tangoes book is 6 1/2"L x 6 1/2"W x 1/2"H Foam-covered puzzle pieces range from 1 1/4" x 1/2" to 2 1/2" x 1 1/4"

The tangos that we already owned have large cards that you fit the tiles onto. The travel version has two little books of cards bound into it (so you won't lose them) and on the front is a picture of the shape you are trying to make. on the back when you flip the little page is the picture broken up into the shapes, but there isn't one that is the same size as the tiles. Just so you know - that is more difficult. My four year old is really good at this stuff and he's just figuring it out a little bit. I told him to use the back pictures for now and that's ok but he needs more help than with the big version. We still love it and when he's older may get the other sets. but for now, it is just good to know that it is more difficult - for a little bit older kids than mine. Other info: good size, good feel. seems durable. Easy to pack up by the kid. Very slim little book that fits into diaper bag pockets, travel bags, purse...
We bought this for our 5-year-old son and he has enjoyed putting together the different animal puzzles. It kept him occupied for about 30 minutes at a time during a car trip. He sometimes needs help with the puzzles but has been able to follow the diagrams and put together many of the puzzles by himself. The puzzle book is a handy size and has over 20 different puzzles to make - the magnets and book fold together keeping everything neatly stored and ready to use again and again. We will likely buy some of the other tangoes puzzles for future trips.
I bought this and the animal and people travel packs. I love them. Yes I am all grown up but these puzzls are a great travel toy and not just for kids. Tangoes are also enjoyed by many adults as well. The pack is great because of the magnetic pieces that stick in place. It is hard sometimes with the other tangoes and tangram games to play because they are not magnetic and the tend to pieces move around easily. Not so with these because of the magnets.
My 2 year old enjoys playing as well even though she does not know yet how to constuct the puzzles. She enjoys putting th epieces to fit together.
