Check Mate!

Did you know the history of chess spans 1500 years? Chess originated in India, then spread to Persia and beyond. The game has changed over time and continues to evolve even today. One of our beloved toy makers, Lupe Toys, has combined the classic game of chess with the modern DIY project. Their Prisma DIY Foldable allows you to make your own chess pieces which are influenced by minerals and rock formations. These abstract puzzle pieces come alive as you put them together and then the game begins. It’s easy to get distracted by these fun formations, but don’t forget to protect your customized queen.
