Reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen introduces his educational chess set for children aged 5 and up, with a unique, contemporary design to appeal to chess players of all ages.
The Design - Traditional yet modern
With a respectful nod to tradition, the height and base of the pieces are defined by the classic Staunton set, but the sleek, modern design lines with stylish matt finish have the same cool, contemporary finesse that Magnus Carlsen has brought to the game. The set has been specifically designed with kids in mind too. Solid, weighted, durable plastic pieces that are comfortable to hold and easy to move.
Piece by Piece
The Victorian green baize traditionally found on the base of chess pieces has been replaced by simple, yet defining, black and white.
Stylishly branded, co-ordinated cotton bags keep all the pieces neatly together in one secure place.
The "Wow" Factor
The unique carry-case gives the Play Magnus Educational Chess Set an instant, show-stopping "Wow!" factor. The sleek black tube with Play Magnus App images has an adjustable, detachable strap that is practical and versatile for children of all ages to use. With celebrity A-list fans such as Jay-Z, Magnus Carlsen has already become the icon for "smart is cool" - and kids carrying this chess set over their shoulder can celebrate their own cool factor!
