From the manufacturer
A must have for beginners. A wonderful way to introduce the game of chess to the novice in your life. The generously sized chessmen and board make learning a snap. You're never too young (or old) to learn how to play the beloved game of chess. In an age that seems convinced high Tech is always better, it's nice to see such an intelligently low-tech approach to teaching the world's greatest board game. This is simply a standard plastic Staunton-style chess set-with one big difference. Each piece is marked with its name, its value, and the directions in which it can Legally move when moving or taking. The large (2-inch), hollow pieces are lightweight and feel pretty flimsy, but in fact they're sturdy and their extra-wide bases give them the stability that small, clumsy fingers need. A folding board and instructions are included with the set. The instructions, unfortunately, are weak; they're best used as an aid to memory by someone who has already had the game explained

Have you ever seen other people talk about chess and they say random things like e4, e5, Nf3, and you ask yourself what are they saying? It is CHESS! You should play chess it is a fun sport. It also has history, better ratings, and problem solving.
For example chess is a logical sport it has problem solving. It could help you in math. One time when I started to play chess soon I became really good at math. It is very satisfying when you get prizes like in some tournaments they give out money and scholastic tournaments give out trophies! One time I went to West Field and I almost got 60 dollars! But I lost the last match.
Also when you play chess in your first tournament you will be unrated and as you go to more tournaments your rating will get higher and higher and higher! Making mistakes in chess is normal and you can learn from your mistakes and become a better chess player. Chess also uses memory and remembering a lot of things is hard. Like variations they could be games too. Like right now I am trying to remember 100 games!
And finally you should play chess is that you also can read history since chess is about 2,000 years old. Like right now I am learning about Bobby Fischer's King's gambit. Some people start and end in one day. Why would they do that? They think that chess is to hard. And if that happens to you don’t do it! Once you get that it is hard like I know it is coming on the hard part. Like my sister, she started to play chess 3 years ago and she thought chess is boring so she quit same as me, I thought chess was boring. But I did not quit and now I think chess is cool!
You should play chess. It is a great sport. Try it, you will see.
I've got a missing piece box at first and asked to replace it.
They sent me immediately and my 3.5yr+5yr sons are playing with this without my help.
very useful and easy to understand to play.

I would add the following observations: First, the photograph of the set shows an illegal position. It is not very helpful for the beginner player to be misled in this way.
Second, Mr. Farr's review indicates that the pieces are labelled with their "value". Actually, it appears that they are marked with the number of squares that they may move. The piece value or strength would actually be much more valuable information for the beginner. It would be more helpful to know that you were about to make a bad trade of a Queen (Val:9) for a Rook (Val:5) instead of an apparently equal trade of a Queen (Moves:7) for a Rook (Moves:7).
Nonetheless, this set may be helpful for the player who insists that they cannot remember how the pieces move. But only for a short time.
