About TeguInspired by the classic wooden toys of Europe, brothers Chris and Will Haughey founded Tegu to pursue the notion of breathing new life into a classic - reinventing the wooden block with embedded magnets. After a meaningful trip to Honduras, they also wanted to address unemployment, neglected natural and human resources, and the need for entrepreneurship there. Today, they run a shop in Honduras that produces the durable, safe, and all-natural building blocks made from sustainably harvested tropical hardwoods. In addition, they offer stable, living wage jobs, help to give children the opportunity to attend school, and work to reforest Honduras by planting more than 34,500 trees to date. Tegu creates classic toys that serve as a foundation for exploration while stimulating mental growth, imaginative capacity, and physical dexterity.

From the Manufacturer

“Click-Clack”. It’s the iconic sound of two Tegu Blocks coming together. Tegu has reinvented the wooden block in a way that brings new life to a favored classic. By safely embedding magnets into each piece, Tegu Blocks become curiously attractive for both kids and kids at heart. Defy gravity and push your imagination in ways never before possible. No instruction manuals or electronics, just toys that demand imagination and inspire limitless creativity across all ages. Open-ended play is endangered, but we’re bringing it back. Created with beautiful Honduran hardwoods and safe water-based finishes, these blocks have proven wildly addictive for kids (and kids at heart) and will encourage the simple joy of creating for generations. This set includes 22 blocks in four shapes: 8 Medium Columns, 6 Mega Planks, 4 Long Planks, and 4 Short Planks. Tegu blocks come packaged in a beautifully designed box large and rigid enough to store the blocks for many years to come. Also, don't miss out on some really fun factoids about the blocks and their origin on the inside of each package. Each set also includes The Tegu Story -- a booklet containing various building ideas and information about Tegu's social and environmental initiatives. There is something magical about watching a child's imagination unfold. The curiosity. The ingenuity. The creativity. Even more exciting is creating a product that unlocks a child's mind. We exist to create experiences that captivate children in safe, natural and innovative ways. At Tegu, this creativity also meets responsibility. Through socially responsible business practices and humanitarian efforts, we are dedicated to helping the Honduran community with reforestation, education and social outreach initiatives.

I have been looking at these blocks for a long time and held off because of the cost. Obviously, they are pricey and I felt like I wasn't getting a lot of pieces for the cost. However, I am very happy to say that they are definitely worth the cost. I was extremely impressed by the number of things my children were able to build with this 22 block set. This has given them hours of play time and they argue over who gets to play with them next. Even my husband has been entertained by them, explaining the polarities to the girls. My plan is to invest in the set of wheels ($14 for 4) to get even more mileage out of these blocks. I may also add another smaller set in the pastel or bright colors in another 6 months or so. I wish that I hadn't held off so long, these were definitely worth the money and with the outstanding quality they will last a very long time.

I really like these as a neat twist on what was my favorite toy growing up. There was nothing like stacking blocks into castles and incorporating them into play with other toys. The magnets allow for more "action" to be involved in what has traditionally been a been perceived as boring toy. If this addition of magnets convinces more parents to buy these for they children then this is really a toy I can get behind. I purchased these at a specialty shop for a nephew of mine. He loves them, and normally he goes for running around and getting muddy, but this keeps him focused enough to sit and build things. I think that is a positive thing. The only thing keeping these blocks from a 5 star review is that they are generally fairly pricey.

I purchased the 22-piece set and a supplemental set that included four magnetic wheels and some more blocks for my nephews for Christmas (ages 5 and 4). Kids and adults alike played with them. Really fascinating, encourages creativity, and well made but be prepared to dig deep into your wallet as they are a bit expensive.

My kids and nephews and nieces all enjoy playing with these blocks. Their creativity really shines and they stay interested for quite a while. They are young kids so I make sure and collect the blocks and return them to the nice box in which they came when the kids are done.

I bought these for my niece and nephew to play with when their in town. All my friends come over and the first thing they play with on the coffee table is usually these blocks. I have also found them to be very useful as fridge magnets. I have also since bought a set for work to put color proofs on a viewing wall for my photography studio.

The price is a bit high for the products. But from what I gather Tegu is a environmentally conscious organization. And if you buy directly from them they also donate a set to a child in need similar to Toms shoes.
