A gorgeous game handcrafted out of monkeypod wood makes a precious piece of playable art. This modern version of an ancient tangram includes seven puzzle pieces, called tans, and 45 glossy silhouette cards. The object of the game is to form the pieces into shapes that match the silhouettes on the cards without overlapping any of them. Silhouettes in varying degrees of difficulty mean there's a challenge for every skill level. Tangrams help children improve memory, spatial reasoning and problem-solving abilities. They also boost long-term mental performance and memory retrieval in adults. That means educational fun for the whole family!
