Tangoes Jr. is a preschoolerized version of the Tangram, an ancient Chinese puzzle requiring the player to assemble seven pieces into a specified form. The difference is that the seven puzzle pieces are magnets, and they stick to the large playing surface that includes a storage drawer.
Players try to recreate the shape presented on a challenge card.
As kids try to complete the puzzle, they are learning to problem solve and visualize solutions. Tangoes Jr. looks simple, but it is fun, absorbing puzzle toy for 3 – 5 year olds. Parents report that you can’t go wrong with this one!
The set includes 12 challenge cards with a different difficulty level on each side (side one is easier; side two more challenging). What we really like is that the puzzle pieces and challenge cards are stored inside the playing surface, which has a handle.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
This product contains magnets. Swallowed magnets can stick together across intestines causing serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or inhaled. Keep away from children under 3 years old.
