Product Description

Product Description

Tegu Blocks are built to foster curiosity. The mystery of magnets offers an experience that starts with marvel and joy. The very first "click-clack" of two blocks coming together sparks an instant magical discovery. Simple magnets and blocks become so much more, and Boundless Play is off and running. 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.

From the Manufacturer

With seven magnetic wooden sculpture pieces and a brushed steel base, this curiously attractive desk toy will help satisfy your creativity with its sleek appearance and addictive magnets. From the cubicle to the home office to the classroom, these wooden blocks can be combined in endless ways to create elegant and inspiring designs. Like our award-winning Tegu Blocks, the Asterisk is purposefully made in Honduras from sustainably harvested hardwoods. When you purchase our products, you help us bring lasting change to Honduras. Warning: This product is not intended for children. Do not put in mouth. 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.

The Tegu Asterisk Desk Toy gets rave reviews from everyone who comes into my office at work. In fact it may be a little too distracting as I often catch people playing with it instead of paying attention to the meeting we are having. But it is a lot of fun and it looks nice on my desk. My only complaint is that not every side of every block is magnetized and you also need to consider magnet polarity. Those factors somewhat limit what you can build, but still very fun with those constraints. I bought this on a black friday sale for around $25. not sure I would pay more than that. $44 seems like a lot for what it is.

I bought this for my desk and I love it so far. It's a bit pricey, but you can tell it's made with high quality materials so I don't mind paying a little extra. It's small enough that it doesn't get in the way but big enough to get noticed. Rearranging the pieces is a nice little break without requiring more than 30 seconds. The best part is, no matter what you do with the pieces, it still looks like expensive modern art.

I am a big fan of tegu blocks, we own several sets and the kids play with them often. I purchased this set for my desk and was disappointed. There are not enough magnets in the blocks . This does not allow for the blocks to be set up in very many ways. I was disappointed.

I ordered this for my husband for Christmas. I opened it and played with it a little. As another reviewer said, all sides are not magnetized, some are polarized. So there are only so many combinations you can make. It stifles the imagination.

They seem to be well made and nicely packaged. I would say these are worth $20, not $35+.

Somewhat disappointed.

We have a number of Tegu block sets, including the giant classroom set, and really love them. It is with regret, then, that I have to say the Asterisk is a terrible Tegu product. It is nothing like their other blocks. The edges are sharp and unfinished to the point they can cut your fingers, and the quality control seems to be poor.

The first unit I received was defective and had portions of multiple blocks without stain on them, as well as the magnets not being aligned toward the center of the block so the blocks wouldn't connect properly. The company replaced the product free of charge, but the replacement I received had its own issues. The second one had a base where the metal part that's supposed to be brushed aluminum was plain raw aluminum with a few scratches and dents in it. The brushed version looked really fantastic, this raw, shiny, dented version not so much.

I really wanted to like it, but overall this is a poor quality product from a company that seems to be otherwise very reliable. I'd stay far, far away from this.
