A Good Egg

It's hard taking a peck at a new project as the day drags on. Step back and take a bird's-eye view of even your most challenging assignment when you send your thoughts aflutter with this set of bird-themed brainteasers. The object of this puzzle is to form a specific bird shape, given only in silhouette, using all 9 puzzle pieces without overlapping any of them. Each set includes 40 glossy silhouette cards printed in vibrant, easy to discern colors. The cards contain puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty to challenge tangramists of all skill levels, with solutions to each puzzle printed on the back of the card. Attractive enough to perch permanently on your desk, this tangram set is constructed of beautifully handcrafted monkey-pod wood, making it the perfect piece of "playable art". The wooden puzzle pieces, known as tans, are cut thickly and precisely to ensure success - all you need to do is take a crack at it. Wooden parts are handmade in Thailand, item is packaged in the USA.

    Comments about Egg Tangram Set:

    I came across this product most unexpectedly and the reviews clearly showed it was a winner! Boyfriend was pleased as punch...and I cant say enough about just how beautifully-crafted it is. Still haven't actually been able to use it yet so can only speak on the giftee's recommendation that it is addictive, great fun, and some of the puzzles are actually head-scratchers! :)

            It's a great product, well design and lots of fun for any age. We already had a similar toy, but this one is all wood and the box can be left out on a coffee table because it is quite nice.

                Purchase was for to increase brain activity as I am aging and have limited people interaction due to illness. This product does this by engaging the mind to focus on shapes and positioning to achieve the form required.

                          I bought this product as a gift for my neighbors- a family with two midschool-aged children. Because it was really unique, I could be pretty sure they wouldn't already have it. I appreciated being able to give an inexpensive yet well-made gift. The kids said they had played with it several times already and loved it.

                          This fun game gives new meaning to the term egghead! Do you know a puzzle fan who would love to test their smarts with this fun set?

                          Love these kind of games. Like that the blurb ties it in with stirring some creativity at work, although I am sure it would be just as good at home

                          It's a neat piece, but it's really just a useless desk gift. I can see others going, wow, that's neat, but then just storing it someplace and never using it.

                          This is really cool and a great way to entertain yourself. It reminds me of a test that psychiatrists use and would be really neat to play with a timer. :)
