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.

Tavern Puzzles evolved from reproductions of hand-forged artifacts that run from basic all the way to Complex (with intermediate and difficult between). Basic designs are often traditional and familiar and have fewer steps. They can look easy, but looking easy is not the same as being easy. The complex designs are characterized by a large number of moves in the solution. Additionally, these designs can also have many "false" moves that do not have anything to do with the solution. False moves must be undone before the correct solution can be followed. Concepts learned at other levels are combined in the complex level.
