Monkey Pod Games Tangrams Set, a modern version of the ancient tangram,  is constructed of beautifully handcrafted monkey-pod wood, making it the perfect piece of "playable art". The 7 wooden puzzle pieces, known as tans, are cut thickly and precisely to ensure success whether puzzles are being solved by the hands of a small child or a grown adult. 

The object of the puzzle is to form a specific shape, given only in silhouette, using all seven pieces without overlapping any of them. Each set includes 50 glossy silhouette cards printed in vibrant, easy to discern colors. Each of the three categories of silhouettes - animals, people, and abstract shapes - contain puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty to challenge tangramists of all skill levels. (Don't worry, solutions to each puzzle printed on the back of the card). The Tangram Set comes in a beautiful wooden box with storage space for both the puzzle pieces and challenge cards, making for easy clean-up and attractive display. 

Great for adults to keep the mind sharp, or as a new source of endless hours of fun for children of all ages. Research has proven that puzzles such as tangrams can increase children's memory, spatial reasoning, problem-solving abilities, focus, speed, and language skills. In adults, they have been shown to boost long-term mental performance, improve memory retrieval and the ability to process new information, making this the perfect piece of exercise equipment for strengthening young minds and older ones too. 

Monkey Pod Games are eco-friendly and sustainably made from rubber or monkey pod wood and finished with a mix of natural oils. Rubber wood is harvested only from rubber trees that can no longer be used to produce rubber. Monkey pod trees (also known as Saman, the Rain Tree or, Albizia Saman) are large, fast growing trees, found in many regions of the world. Because they grow so easily, they require little maintenance, making little impact on the environment.  Trees are replanted each year to replace those that were cut.
