Tangram – Handmade Classic Wooden Puzzle
Tangram – Handmade Classic Wooden Puzzle
This timeless toy mixes the beauty of shape with the cognitive function of puzzle. The seemingly simple task of putting all seven shapes back into the wooden, square tray is surprisingly challenging for problem-solvers both young and old. When you fit them in, just right, knowing that last piece will complete the square, is such a rewarding “I Did It!”, moment – every time. This hand-cut puzzle and tray make a unique handmade learning gift. Each set comes with 7 shapes, hand painted on one side (pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple); and natural wood on the back – making this learning toy a grow-with-me material for your little explorer as well as your older cryptologist. Each tray comes with a set of pattern cards so little ones can do big work. One side is a color-coded graphic so novice puzzle-builders can put together meaningful pictures using the Tangram shapes. The backside of each pattern card has black silhouettes to engage older, problem-solving pros.
Each Tangram puzzle tray measures approximately 11” square. The puzzle pieces are slightly raised in the tray making it easier to get in and out. Each of the 7 shape pieces has been handpainted with a soy based, watercolor wash and the whole puzzle has been lightly coated in beeswax and jojoba oil. Each set comes in a drawstring pouch for easy cleanup and portability but the wooden puzzle tray would be a beautiful addition to a work station, coffee table, or materials shelf. Each set comes with several pattern card challenges to expand learning through play opportunities.

Founder and principle designer, Jessica Perkins, has been creating for as long as she can remember, originally helping her mama with her handmade toy store over 20 years ago. With the birth of her children, and all the new little people in her life, Jessica found herself searching for toys that met her educational and design standards.
Inspired by these little explorers, and her understanding of Montessori and Waldorf methodologies, Jessica Perkins began making all of her creations with the belief that children make sense of their world through sensing their world. After years of making, creating, and gifting her creations to friends and family, Jessica decided to start selling her goodies. Since the launch of Mama May i in 2009, Jessica’s passion for artistic expression through toys has blossomed into a business supported by mama’s and papa’s all over the world.
With this learning through play philosophy in mind, Mama May i encourages kids, both big and small, to dive in, make a splash, a scribble, or an inquisitive fiddle on the memories we share together.
