We offer a complete range of quality wooden puzzles and complex brain-teasers which offer children the opportunity to apply their talents and develop mathematical awareness as well as logical reasoning and analytical thinking skills.
Monkey Pod Games is named after the Monkey Pod tree, which is the wood from which the puzzles are made. The Monkey Pod tree is found in northern Thailand and around the Pacific. It is ideal for wooden puzzles because it can be cut to very precise dimensions.
For my review I had the chance to review a really cool Monkey Pod Game that really has made my mind work and I am having a blast with it as well is my daughter whom is 7 and when my hubby gets home he will have a blast too.
Monkey Pod Games Wooden Tangram Set - Large Shape Cards is such a great game and really gets your mind working. It comes in this great wooden box that is actually really pretty too. On the inside it has a divider one side of the cards and the other for the pieces. Don't worry because the top card of the deck shows how to get all the pieces in there for storage. I am very glad for that card because I tried for like over 5 minutes and still couldn't get the pieces back in there. My daughter got a good laugh from me.
I really like how the cards have 2 sides to them. One side has the shape that you are trying to make with the pieces with no indication on how to make it but the shape it self. If you start having trouble or have been trying to figure it out for a while then just flip the card over and it will show you what pieces to use how. It is really nice because it really gets me thinking and I mean thinking.
Here are a few other games that I would love to try out.
