The quality of the pieces and the board is exceptional. It's a great quality material set that folds up into a compact set. Similar in quality to folding wooden chess sets sold at similar prices.
Their claim that this teaches kids chess is deceptive! There are no instructions on how to play - just a dice that says “move this piece” and cards that tell the kids exactly what to do.
