Tegu Blocks - Wooden Block Toys with Embedded Magnets!

Updated on December 2, 2011

Tegu Blocks

Tegu blocks are gorgeous wooden building block toys; only it's much better. They've got magnets embedded in them.

Tegu has a truly unique product. You've got a lot of companies offering wooden stacking blocks - but Tegu's wooden blocks seemingly defy gravity, due to tiny magnets that are safely hidden in them. Because of these magnets, your kids can fully indulge in their creative passions giving shape to complex designs that are truly awe-inspiring.

Curiously attractive but brilliantly simple, Tegu has brought wooden blocks to the 21st century. These wooden blocks provide hours of open-ended and unscripted play for your kids, thereby unleashing their creative energy.

Tegu blocks are highly recommended. I give it my highest approval rating (been wanting to create a system one of these days ;) ).

Tegu Blocks - Great, unique toy

Tegu Blocks Review

"I bought these toys for my son when he was 4 and he loves playing with them. He liked seeing how tall of a tower he could build and would pretend the different parts were 'diving boards' or 'platforms' - he really used his imagination.

The toys are very durable (he left them outside overnight and they are a little weathered but still very solid and functional) and the magnets are stronger than you'd think.

We often take them along when we travel and our family or friends (adults and kids alike) always enjoy playing with them!

If I still worked in an office, this would make a great 'toy' for my desk! Its just an extra bonus that its a made with sustainable wood and helps educate children in Honduras!"

Are Tegu Blocks Expensive?

Hint: Consider Tegu as part of your heirloom

The blocks are fairly expensive - since these are handcrafted wooden toys and not injection-moulded plastic.

But think of it this way - Buy Tegu toys today, and it's not just your kids who are going to play with them - it's also your grand-kids and great-grand-kids. How's that for an return on investment?

You get what you pay for in toys and Tegu toys are built to last for generations.

A Customer Reviews Tegu Blocks

We were fortunate enough to find four sets of these in our stockings this year (one for each family member) and we love them! My husband and youngest daughter have combined three of the sets (they ran off with mine!) to make various figures, shapes and toys out of them.

My daughter has made a mommy and baby figure, bunny figures, funny angled buildings and something that looked like a train. Both her and my husband take turns rearranging the blocks to make something when the other isn't around as a surprise on each other. My husband and oldest daughter also like playing with the magnetic aspects of the wood by sliding them around or clinking them together as a sort of chain.

Our four sets were all the pocket pouches. One was colored Tegu Pocket Pouch - Tints - Magnetic Wooden Building Blocks, one natural Tegu Pocket Pouch - Natural - Magnetic Wooden Building Blocks and two Tegu Pocket Pouch - Mahogany - Magnetic Wooden Building Blocks. I wish we had one of the complete sets as well because I think there would be amazing creations to come out of it!

I also like that the product is sustainably created, lead-free and provides support for a third-world country. It is also just a really great, basic toy. The pieces are simple, but the options to create are so varied. Anything that offers creative play is going to be a winner in my book and add to that the ecological benefits and you can bet it is something I will recommend to anyone that will listen.
