From the manufacturer
The 14-piece set comes in a beautiful box and makes a great gift for kids of all ages.
Tegu Building System
One thing most people don't realize is that all our blocks are designed to work together. This was a unique challenge that was solved by crafting each block around a core module of 30mm. (By the way, the 30mm cube was the first piece we made!)
By creating a building system rather than a kit of parts, the possibilities with Tegu blocks are limited only by the builder’s imagination.

The Tegu Story
Tegu- 'TAY goo'
Our name is derived from Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras, where we manufacture Tegu blocks in our factory. Helping the nation of Honduras is a foundational priority of our company; you’ll find this in everything we do, starting with our name. We established our fully independent toy factory outside Tegucigalpa to make a statement: we’re in Honduras by choice and we’re here to stay.
Co- founders Chris and Will Haughey
Returning from a business trip to Honduras in 2006, Chris Haughey, Tegu’s co-founder, left with more than a souvenir; he took home a vision to create a business to help transform a country. With a background in woodworking and an appreciation for the beautiful hardwoods of Honduras, Chris quickly found himself pursuing the startup of a wooden toy company. As he involved his brother Will and other talented friends in the venture, Tegu and its signature products were born, lighting a path for profit-driven business to have a transforming effect on the lives of Hondurans. Today, Tegu creates meaningful social impact in Honduras through employment and responsible business practices.
The Tegu Team
Every time a Tegu toy is sold, a positive chain of events is set in motion; it doesn't just end with a happy child flexing his or her imagination. As Tegu grows, we continue to add jobs at our factory in Honduras where we aspire to one day be the employer of choice by prioritizing long-term employee growth and development. Tegu is working to bring world-class employment standards to Central America.

The largest blocks only have a single magnet in each end for example, so there's no way to connect something along the length.
The magnetic strength is good, but often won't keep pieces from rotating under their own weight, which again slightly limits what you can build with them.
Otherwise they're great, feel and look good, and make a great toy for kids or even ans an "executive desk toy" to give you something to occupy your hands when on the phone or thinking.
The 14 piece set is the best starter set in my opinion. It has enough pieces to do non-trivial things, and it's still a very reasonable price. The slightly cheaper "pocket" sets are cute, and come with a case, but really don't give you enough block combinations. For a bit more you can get this set instead.
This 14 piece set is a great starter-set. I bought these for my nephews to see if they would play with them. My nephews need some encouragement to be creative and with the aid of the Tegu wheel set my oldest nephew (who's 4) absolutely loved them! The adults played with them just as much as the kids did.
The one thing to note is that the long, rectangular blocks do not have any magnets on the long sides, only on square end. This makes some construction ideas void.
The magnets themselves are great. They are just strong enough to stay firmly in place, but not too weak as to fall apart. They don't snap in place with force which is a great feature to avoid pinched fingers!
If you're looking for some educational, fun and beautiful toys for kids (or adults) then consider these!
If you aren't familiar with these blocks, they are magnetic. Great fun.
