Tangoes Jr. Review (Smart Toys and Games)

What It Is

Tangoes Jr. is a fun and creative problem-solving game. Based on the original Tangoes game, Tangoes Jr. offers a unique version designed specifically for kids. This all-in-one case has 12 large challenge cards, seven magnetic puzzle pieces, and a large playing surface. All the cards and magnetic pieces store neatly inside the case.

The 12 cards include three levels of difficulty: starter, junior, and expert. The starter level cards have the outline of the piece that should fit the space. The junior level cards have one big silhouette of the image. The expert level cards have harder designs without the outlines of the pieces. The object is to find the correct magnetic puzzle pieces to create the picture shown on the card.

Is It Fun?

This brain teaser game is great for getting kids to use problem-solving skills while also thinking creatively and building motor skills. It may take some time for kids to catch on how to play, but that's part of the fun and play of Tangoes Jr. As kids solve the easy challenges, they can progress to the challenges in the next difficulty levels.
