ThinkFun Shape By Shape
Based on the ancient game of tangrams, Shape by Shape is the quietly absorbing game of fitting 14 pieces inside a puzzle frame. Not as simple as it sounds, players are challenged to match the image on each of 60 cards using six red pieces to form the card's subject and eight yellow pieces to form its background. If needed, hints on the back of each card will aid the player. In addition to the 60 puzzles provided there are 27,268 ways to arrange the pieces inside the puzzle frame. Children who can draw up a master list will be well on their way to brilliant careers in math or engineering. This compact, nicely designed game includes a plastic drawer below the puzzle frame to hold the cards. --Wendy SlotboomSee all Product description

The pieces are really substantial/sturdy, and it's so clever how the card deck of designs fits in a drawer underneath. I toss the game box and store it in the drawstring bag that comes with it.
I chose Shape by Shape instead of ThinkFun's Square by Square because I was worried Square x Square would prove too easy. Shape by Shape is a challenge! Card 1, the Rooster, almost had me returning the game, I found it so hard! But the kids and I skipped ahead to other designs and had some success so we are pleased!
If you like this type of spatial puzzle game, my other favorite ThinkFun game is Cover Your Tracks.
It is also great for a take along game-I wouldn't suggest playing it in the car, but it comes with a handy drawstring bag and the cards fit in a drawer underneath the main playing 'table'.
Our family and friends have had hours of fun playing with this puzzle.
As a homeschooler-I look for fun ways to bring learning into our home and this puzzle fits the bill perfectly! This game helps my boys to: identify shapes, to develop their spatial memory, spatial relationship & spatial visualization skills, to recognize and apply transformations, and problem solving skills. They think they are just having fun!
This product is worth every penny-a classic and a must have for every home.
1. It comes with a travel pouch
2. It's small enough for easy storage in the car and for traveling with.
3. It keeps the mind active and sharp
4. The puzzle peices are a nice size. Not too small (so they won't get lost).
5. There is a secret compartment in the box to keep the cards. Very nifty!
All in all, this is a wonderful toy for kids. Great for the mind and something that kids and parents alike can both feel good about!
