One thing I hate about traveling is that there are long periods of waiting...to actually travel. This means you have to be very sneaky about getting ways to keep yourself occupied, without having a ton of items that you also need to carry around. In steps tegu! Their Pocket Pouch is perfect for those of us who want to be entertained and educated.
The Prism Pocket Pouch is a little, unassuming set of six triangular/rhomboid pieces that comes in a little pouch, hence the name! This little set can also fit in the pocket of any travel bag or backpack, or large pocket (again, the name is just too appropriate). The name is just the start, the prism comes with a 'cheat sheet' of building ideas. If you have no idea where to start, these are cute figures that can be easily made and disassembled and made again.
Tubby was not as impressed with the Pocket Pouch as I was. I think older children and adults would be better occupied with this travel set. He wanted to know where the rest of the pieces were, since our other set has 22 pieces. He did ask me to build first a circle (I don't know why), then a church (since he loves hearing the bell ring the hours) and then I had to make an airplane, since we were flying. He did give it a try, though, concentrating hard.
This mini set takes a bit more concentration to build than the larger sets because you are much more restricted in putting the pieces together. But, this makes it more challenging, which is a great attribute of a travel game. You will will aways minute after minute until you realize it is time to land and you have made innumerable shapes and figures with the help of tegu.
Be sure to follow tegu on twitter as well as facebook since they run a lot of contests! Which item is your favorite in the store? Or do you already have a set and love it to pieces? ...pun intended...
Huge thanks to tegu for sponsoring an Endeavour set in the Christmas in July hop!
