"Click-Clack." It's the iconic sound of two Tegu Blocks coming together.
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.
Tegu blocks come packaged in a beautifully designed box large and rigid enough to store the blocks for many years to come. Also, don't miss out on some really fun factoids about the blocks and their origin on the inside of each package. Each set also includes The Tegu Story -- a booklet containing various building ideas and information about Tegu's social and environmental initiatives. 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.
How are Tegu wooden blocks different from other toy blocks?
Anyone who’s played with our magnetic blocks can answer this question. It’s not just that our wooden toys are magnetic, it’s the play value the magnets add. The ability to build beyond the traditional constraints of gravity is incredibly liberating; now you can build out, not just up! Also, working with the polarity of the magnets on the fly is a fun challenge; it generates more critical thinking and educational opportunities than you might expect, and critical thinking is good!
I can't see the magnets on the wooden blocks. Where are they?
The magnets are hidden inside the wooden toys and are therefore not visible or accessible. This is thanks to the thoughtful toy design and quality toy manufacturing behind the Tegu concept. Safety, quality, and durability are of the utmost importance to Tegu. Our toys boast a patent-pending solid hardwood construction which keeps the magnets inside. We are a premium product, and, deeply knowing our own supply chain and owning our manufacturing plant, we control the process from start to finish (a true rarity in toys).
Warning: This product contains small magnets. Swallowed magnets can cause complications leading to serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnet are swallowed or inhaled.
