Product Description

Color: Tints

The Pocket Pouch is a great way to get to know the awesome world of Tegu blocks. The set includes 8 blocks in two shapes: 4 short planks and 4 cubes. The blocks come in a colorful finish we call Tegu Tints, and magnetic connections between the blocks make for surprising play that defies gravity and flexes a child's creative freedom. These blocks are made of a beautiful blonde hardwood native to Honduras, and we are proud to be tinting it with our safe, water-based colors. Tegu is a pioneering wooden toy company designing products that unleash the power of little imaginations. Introducing eco-friendly building blocks magically attracted by magnets, Tegu has unveiled the first wooden toys ever created to defy gravity. But, it gets better: building their own manufacturing plant in Honduras, Tegu is realizing a dual goal of creating dozens of jobs for men and women while working to replenish a sadly abused rainforest. Ages 3+ | Warning: This product contains small magnets. Swallowed magnets can cause complications leading to serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or inhaled.

Color: Tints
My children have never been so disappointed to get something from Santa before! I totally wish I was exaggerating. My 8 year old just sadly said, "I wish Santa had sent us Legos" and my 6 year old said "this is so boring, it breaks all the time". My 3 year old happily enjoyed playing with about 4 pieces together, not making anything in particular for about 2-3 minutes and on to not caring for them.

Quality vs price, etc in the eyes of a mom-- I have purchased hundreds of different toy brands over the years. We like quality and educational toy brands overall. Specially since we deal with special needs in our family. Tegu are great little wood blocks. The magnet part is fun, but the strength of the magnets just make you wish Tegu had invested more in stronger/larger magnets to match the premium price at which they are advertised. Also, most of the blocks don't have magnets on the middle surface section so it doesn't allow for more creative/versatile building. The triangle pieces can only be connected on two different spots (out of 5 possible). Because the magnets are so weak, children can't play with what is built, as you have to be extremely gentle with the model once its complete. The product just isn't intuitive because there are too many limitations on how you can build and how big.

Here is what I think Tegu could improve and maybe save other families from the same fate:

-This product is definitively overpriced! Hey, $150 for the classroom set would have been plenty. $10-$20 per smaller set would have been a decent price.

-Stronger magnets, a must!

-Magnets on all sides and middle sections is a must! This severely limits intuitive play and versatility. With only 6 lego bricks, there are over 100,000 possible combinations.

This is a great product. Our two-year-old LOVES them and keeps going back to play with them - but the drawback is - she never plays for long because in the end, it's just 8 pieces and she gets tired of it pretty quickly. However, she does come back later to play with them a little more. The product just seems really expensive! $28 for 8 pieces? Wow. The funny thing is - the baby looked at them when we gave them to her and she looked around like 'where is the rest of it?!' Even she was expecting MORE!! And so were the adults. Made me feel so cheap! Oh by the way, speaking of adults - the adults loved them too. They're fun to hold and play with for every age.

But at these prices - it's really hard to spend more. The 52-piece set looks wonderful - but it's over $100. I just can't fathom paying $100 for some wood blocks & magnets!! I know they're very well done wood blocks with magnets (they're quite beautiful really)... but in the end - it's still wood & magnets! I'm having my own personal recession over here and those prices look really high right now.

I would give this a 4 or 5 overall rating if there were more blocks included. This is a case where more really is better and less really takes away from the overall play value for the baby.

I was hesitant to buy these, since they seemed so pricey for such small toys. I finally bought it to help entertain my 2 year old in restaurants on vacation, and I'm so glad that I did. They are really fun little magnet toys, and they are the perfect size to travel with and to keep in a backpack or diaper bag. I did some research on the company, and the highish price is due to the fact that they actually pay a fair wage and do community building. That's the kind of company I don't mind supporting. This toy will be a big help on our upcoming plane flight. (It's also been an addictive game for the grown ups to fiddle with. We might need to buy another set.)

Absolutely perfect airplane/restaurant toy for my 16 month old. She played with these for at least 20-30 minutes on the plane and didn't want to stop when we landed! Not sure they would have held her interest just a few months ago or not, or for how long they will continue to fascinate her, but perfect toy right now!

I carry these in my purse for my 18 month old and 3 yr old. They are always a hit, and people frequently come up and ask us questions about where to buy these blocks. Tegu is a great company. Great quality toy. I definitely recommend this as an alternative to sticking an iPhone in front of your kiddo :)

I purchased this to keep in my purse for when my 3 year old needs entertainment. We were a little weary of the price, but I found the quality to be worth it.

PROS:
-excellent quality, they have been thrown around and look brand new.
-fun for adults too! My husband and I find ourselves playing with them while waiting at restaurants.
-fits perfectly in the pouch which is also great quality.

CONS:
-not really for toddlers. My little one has a hard time trying to figure out how to get these to stick together as he doesn't understand positive/negative sides of magnets. Our 10 year old really enjoys these and is able to create all kinds of things.

Bought these for the toddler in my life to fill wait times at restaurants, etc. The magnets are very strong and pull the blocks together with a very loud snap. It's also hard -- for a child -- to make configurations with spaces between the blocks. It's a better toy for older children (and maybe adults) who can appreciate the push and pull of magnets and the beautiful wood.
