Tangoes Jr. makes the tangram puzzle concept appealing and accessible to preschoolers with developing fine motor and spatial skills. The new game features a unique "playing case" and large, double-sided puzzle cards that offer two levels of play and enable children to solve each puzzle directly on the card. The puzzle pieces are thicker and larger than the original game's and each piece has an easy-grip lip, making it simple for kids age four and up to move pieces around. Tangoes Jr. puzzle cards feature recognizable images in three categories: animals, people and objects, for plenty of variety and widespread appeal. Guaranteeing years of fun and fresh challenges, each double-sided card incorporates two levels of play. On one side, individual geometric shapes are clearly pictured. The player is challenged to match the shapes to create the tangram image shown. On the other, more advanced side, the same image appears, but only in silhouette, offering a greater challenge for more advanced players and adding a memory game element.
— “Tangoes Jr. is the first toy to make the ancient tangram puzzle accessible to preschoolers. (It) builds fine motor skills, visual discrimination, cognitive abilities and pre-math and artistic skills,” president Ellen Roth of Rex Games told TDmonthly.

Day & Night is a game that evolves in step with children's growing skills: Hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Ages 3 and up: Visual perception of colors and shapes. In the day everything is bright and clear so the day side of each challenge shows kids all the details of their playing pieces and the shapes needed to create the scene. Ages 4 and up: Visual perception and logical reasoning. At night, when it's dark, kids can only see silhouettes so the night side of each challenge only gives kids the outline of what they have to create.
