These are not your average wooden blocks. Imagine being able to not only stack wooden blocks but also to stick them together in weird, gravity-defying formations. That’s the brilliance of these small blocks. The makers of Tegu Wooden Blocks inserted magnets so these blocks can do all sorts of interesting things.
Just think about all the possibilities your creative kid can come up with like making animals, robots, boats…the sky is the limit.
In fact, that creativity was the inspiration behind Tegu blocks. The founders, brothers Chris and Will Haughey, watched kindergarteners at play and realized that young children loved to make up stories, so they built blocks that could go where a child’s imagination could go.
The company uses sustainable hardwood from Honduras to make the blocks. And, if that wasn’t enough, they actively plant more trees Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which you can track right on their website. In fact, if you visit their site you can learn all about how Tegu was started to give Honduras and their citizens a helping hand.
Also on their website is a show and tell page where you can share your best Tegu design. LIke a virtual refrigerator if you will. You can submit your creations and share them with other Tegu owners. Nothing like a little competition to get the creative juices flowing.
Lastly, when you order, you are given the option of planting a dozen trees or funding a day of school in Honduras. Way to put your money where you mouth is.
The Tegu wooden toys come in a 26 piece starter set which costs $50 and the 52 piece original set which costs $90. There’s also a mahogany set if you prefer your blocks in a darker hue. The blocks are available directly from the Tegu store.
