Mostly Good Construction, But Flawed Gameplay

Rating: 3

The product is well constructed and generally very kid-friendly, though my 4 year old son has a little trouble opening the side drawer. My real objection stems from the fact that the shapes have a right side up (magnet down) and a wrong side up. That in itself is merely a nuisance for the triangles and squares. However, for the parallelogram piece, having only one right side up rules out a whole class of puzzles. One consequence is that compatibility with the "grown up" tangoes puzzle cards is 50:50 chance of being unsolvable. Another consequence is that all the Junior puzzle cards remove the fun and challenge of figuring out which way up the parallelogram should go for solving the puzzle. I am surprised that the shapes were not manufactured to embed the magnet in the center of the shape so that both sides can be "right side up". I'm sure they will fix it in version 2.0, but by then my son will be using grown up version.

My son likes to play with Tanagrams, and so liked getting this for Christmas. However, I think that the magnets are a little weak, and the drawer is hard to open. He needs to ask me to open it every time he wants to play with it.
