Its a great way to GET a kid into the shop I've found. My grandson really enjoys making all sorts of puzzles. Alot of skills can be learned and developed making them. Kinda like cutting boards, do a couple and you're hooked.

Tangrams are used is vision therapy by pediatric optometrists. Many of them would love to have a set this nice. They are very effective in developing visualization skills, for example. They're also used to teach kids how to translate written or spoken instructions into ation, a skill you don't learn by fiddling with a spart phone or video game.

Huh, never heard of that before. Makes me glad I posted it. Dunno, but it looks like it would be possible to shape long pieces of lumber, then just slice off parts. May just try it that way. If I did, what would the best way to track down pediatric optometrists (didn't even know there was such an animal - learn something new all the time)?
