The Tangram is no ordinary puzzle. Tangrams are a mentally challenging exercise where art and mathematics meet. Seven simple shapes nestled together form a simple square. But you'll soon discover that these geometric shapes can be arranged and rearranged to form people, animals, birds, boats & buildings. With a bit of analytical thinking and visualization, you will be hooked creating your own unique fun designs! The Tangram consists of only seven pieces known as "tans". The tans can be arranged to form well over 2000 shapes and that number will continue to increase as more people discover the Tangram and create their own shapes.The Chinese call Tangram the "Board of Wisdom".

The Tangram has been used for years in schools and classrooms to teach critical and mathematical thinking. Medical practitioners recommend the Tangram for seniors to stay mentally agile. See how many shapes you can create.

A perfect gift for children of all ages. Once you start you can't stop. Come with wood cover and solution.

The tangram is a dissection puzzle consisting of several flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap.

 

It is reputed to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty, and then carried over to Europe by trading ships in the early 19th century. It became very popular in Europe for a time then, and then again during World War I. It is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. A Chinese psychologist has termed the tangram "the earliest psychological test in the world", albeit one made for entertainment rather than for analysis.
