1/16/2012 - For Immediate Release
Middlebury, VT—Maple Landmark Woodcraft's Deluxe Chess Set was included on Education.com's 2011 Gift Guide for the Holidays and beyond. Teachers, parents, curriculum specialists and members of the Education.com staff have been pulling together the best products for children since 2008. The Education.com evaluation team selects only the most fun, unique, high value and educational products to be included on the list—15 products per grade.
"For years we have been asked to make chess sets, but we don't have the equipment to make the fancy pieces, so the designs and details had to be something special for Maple Landmark," stated Jill Stackhouse, Sales Manager. Unlike any other chess sets on the market, the Maple Landmark pieces are engraved on the bottom with a small diagram of how each piece moves.
Great for beginners or those folks that just need a refresher. The deluxe chess board is a 16" square board with black side rails. The board is black and natural and is finished with a brown stain. The chess pieces are shaped from cherry and maple wood. Aside from the deluxe set, the chess pieces are available with a basic board or no board at all. Suggested retail for the chess pieces, without the board is $38.00; for the complete deluxe chess set, pieces and board, the suggested retail is $67.00.
"Today more than ever, people want the biggest bang for their buck when they're shopping for the children in their lives," said Education.com Editor-in-Chief Danielle Wood. "Parents want products that support kids' development as well as their imaginations. Kids want products that are fun the first day they get them, and stay fun as they use them over time. The things on our gift guide encompass all of this—they inspire imagination and creativity, but they have learning value underneath all the fun."
