I have seen the famous Tegu blocks online many times. I knew that without a shadow of a doubt my children would love them. Wooden blocks with magnets placed inside, what child would love them? These are no ordinary blocks and Tegu is not just another company.
The name “Tegu” is taken from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where they create and source the materials for their wooden blocks.
Tegu offers no instruction manuals or electronics, just toys that demand imagination and inspire limitless creativity for children of all ages, including the big ones! Our society is sorely lacking in this department in the electronic era we now live in. It is amazing how little it really takes to entertain little ones! Check out Austin playing with his Tegu blocks.
We love them. We have had hours of creative play with our Tegu blocks. I actually feel good about letting my little ones enjoy themselves with Tegu magnetic wooden blocks.
Tegu has taken great strides in building a product portfolio and their brand around natural and non-toxic materials. Using hardwoods from Honduras that are sustainably harvested. They create their toys from wood that is obviously natural, the magnets are safely enclosed inside the wood and the coatings used are water-based and non-toxic.
You are not only providing your child with a sustainable heirloom toy, but you are also contributing to the community that Tegu has provided in Honduras where their blocks are manufactured. I would so encourage you to watch this 3 minute video and be prepared to be touched. As a society, we don’t always think about how the products we are purchasing effect the environment, but even more so, is the lack of connection to the ones that actually make the products. This Tegu video shows just how much impact these blocks can have, not just on your children, but also to those that are making them and their families as well.
