    As if Tangrams weren't challenging enough, now you can try your hand at Double Tangrams. This set offers a super challenge using two sets of foam Tangrams along with a thick book of 100 puzzles. Two things to remember when doing the puzzles – all of the puzzles require the use of all of the pieces, and the puzzles may have more than one solution. The puzzle challenges are represented in black on the front side of the page and a solution is printed in the color of the tangrams on the reverse. The puzzles aren't presented to scale, so instead of working directly on the book you just lay out the pieces on any flat surface. These puzzles are quite challenging!

    Challenge your problem-solving and shape recognition skills with this collection of 150 tangram puzzles. It includes tangrams in two sizes. The larger set is standard-sized and can be used on any flat magnetic surface like the included play board, refrigerator, or file cabinet. The four smaller sets can also be used on any magnetic surface but are particularly ideal with the playing board (which measures 6 ½" x 6 ½") to keep kids entertained and engaged during times of travel. Puzzles are of all difficulty levels, and some of the more challenging ones may require more than one set of tangrams to complete. The only problem I see with this product is that there is only one board included; kids may just have to wait their turn to enjoy the fun of tangrams! Solutions provided. Hc, 48 pgs. -Enh

    This excellent tangram puzzle book contains 120 puzzles in 60 different animal and nature designs. The puzzles are given in two formats - one with lines showing the proper placement of the tangrams within the puzzle outline for young children, and a puzzle with a blank interior for the more advanced student to try to fit all the pieces into. There's plenty of puzzles here to entertain everyone, and just in case you don't have a set of tangrams in the house (we won't tell), they've also included two copy masters to make your own tangrams, one on sturdy cardstock if you would just like to cut them out. Suggestions for use with different levels of children also included. - Jess

    It's a puzzle! It's a card game! It's family fun! A tangram is a square cut into 7 geometric shapes. Each player gets their own set of tangrams. The cards have designs on them that you recreate with your tangram set. There are 3 levels of difficulty. Spread the cards out in the middle of your group; one player turns over a card and that is the design you all race to make! It is fun and fast and sometimes frustrating! Tangrams definitely require spatial skills. The first person to get the design right (you check the back of the card) keeps the card & the first player to earn 5 cards is the winner of the game. Includes 4 sets of tangrams (red, blue, yellow, green, 4"squares, 1cm thick wood) and 200 puzzle cards. 2-4 players ~ Sara

    This classic tangram game offers a fun challenge for one or two players. There are 30 cards with a beginning level on one side and an advanced level on the other side. The beginner level will have color-coded designs while the advanced level will only include the outline of the design. In the two-player game, each player will take 1 tangram set consisting of 7 pieces (2 large triangles, 1 medium sized triangle, 2 small triangles, 1 square, and 1 parallelogram). The first player to complete the design wins the card and the first player collecting 10 cards wins the game. Solutions to the advanced level are on the back of the cards (beginner level). For individual play, choose a level of difficulty and try to master all the designs as fast as you can! Game includes 14 color-coded pieces printed with non-toxic inks and made of 90% recycled paper. ~ Gina

    Tangoes is a fun puzzle game in which players must use tangram pieces (various random shapes) to make specific objects and shapes shown on puzzle cards. It's a fun game that develops creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Usually (like in the original Tangoes), players use only 7 tangram pieces to solve the puzzles, but in this double edition, there are 14 pieces that must be used! This makes the challenges even more fun as there are more pieces and puzzle options. This great set includes 112 puzzle cards which show the final shape that must be made (the solutions are on the back of the cards). There are also two sets of 14 puzzle pieces so two people can play at once! All this is stored in a durable case, which is perfect for on-the-go use. Double the fun of Tangoes!
