Who would love this: Collectors of classic, wooden games
Sleek, classic, and with a quiet vintage feel - this “Logic Egg Tangram Set” from Funyards Australia is probably one of the most beautiful Tangram puzzles I have ever seen.
Why I love ❤️ this set:
(1) A Box With 2 Egg-Shaped Tangrams
Comfortably snuggling within a handcrafted wooden box - you will find two layers of egg-shaped Tangram, each made up of 9 geometrical pieces of different sizes and forms (2 right triangles of equal size, 1 acute triangle, 6 other pieces with a combination of curvy and straight edges). Like other usual Tangram, the elegant models can be “taken apart” and re-arrange into different shapes, patterns, images. What you need is a little constructive imagination, an ability to visualise, and a good sense of matching skill. I love that the dissection puzzle comes in double - we can play with it solitarily, collaboratively, or competitively. It’s a game for all ages and skill levels, a screen-free activity that would keep us engaged for many hours.
(2) Tangram With 54 Challenge Cards
The Tangram set comes with 54 double-sided cards with pictures that can be replicated using the 9 individual pieces. On one side of the cards are silhouette of the images, filled with a single dark colour. On the reverse side of each card is the same image but with white outline separating the pieces (ie the solutions). The 9 Tangram pieces make fascinating bird images (rooster, stork, pelican, goose, woodpecker?) - some are easier to tell, some are purely abstract (especially in the eyes of someone who is not much of a bird-watcher like myself). The goal? Choose a card from the deck and recreate the silhouette as printed using the 9 individual pieces. The challenges are tantalising, addictive, tough and frustrating, but SO satisfying to watch the pieces finally matching the prescribed forms!
(3) Most Beautiful Wooden Tangram I Have Ever Seen
I love the wooden box with compartments for the double eggs and the image cards. I love that everything can be snugly contained within the box, and securely stored with a lid for safe keeping. The components are solid, done with beautiful craftsmanship, and complete with smooth finishes. This is one game that would get any avid Tangram players and collectors excited!
