From the brand
How we got our startWhen Chris and Will Haughey started Tegu, they asked: “Could we create a for-profit company that would foster a positive social impact in Honduras through its business?” That was where it all began, and today, we’ve established our fully independent toy factory outside Tegucigalpa.
What makes our product uniqueWe like to say it’s a new twist on an old classic. We’ve carefully hidden magnets inside traditional wooden building blocks all while creating a visually beautiful toy—one that would fit well in your playroom, coffee table, or office desk.
Why we love what we doHonduras is the 3rd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has one of the highest unemployment rates. We are in Honduras to change this story; we believe the power of job creation and awakening the joy of service will one day allow us to be the ‘employer of choice’ in the country and region.

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.

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.

Anyway, their toys cost a little more than you would otherwise expect as a result, but it doesn't matter. I purchased the largest set for my nephews about a month ago, and my sister out of nowhere mentioned they're still playing with the blocks constantly, seeing what odd arrangements they can make - or funny enough - using like sides of the magnets to repel each other. I can't wait to add to their collection, and I have to admit that after playing with my nephews I sort of want a small set for myself as well.
This really is a great building set for children who are still developing fine motor control.
Took 2 stars- Why only one yellow block? Yes the picture only has one but isn't that a little weird?
Nothing wrong with the item but didn't wow me... For the price I shouldn't feel like this... Also ordered the carry case so hopefully that's not a disappointment. Kid is obsessed so I won't return... But it's Not worth the price
UPDATE**** Within an hour of writing this review my son comes to me with the Mother of all SPLINTERS. I wish I could give this zero stars. Getting my almost 200 back (bought the travel case also).
