Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks

Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks  is more than welcome for a special feature in my 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. Until recently I didn’t know this product existed, and then once we knew about them and played with them ourselves – my family was hooked. They are blocks made from sustainably sourced, FSC-certified, eco-friendly Honduran wood. Side note: they are named after the place they are made, Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The production of Tegu blocks helps the Hondurans get education, money and food. This company has one amazing give-back program, they also re-plant way more trees than the ones they use to make Tegu blocks.

Tegu Magnetic Wooden Blocks What makes Tegu blocks stand out beyond any other block I have seen, is the magnets placed inside each block. This allows them to defy gravity and provide dimensional creations in all directions, not just upwards. Not only do kids learn how to build, but they start to understand positive and negative polarity and how to make 3D creations. Tegu really does take the much loved block and explodes the possible creativity.

In my previous post on What do I build With Tegu blocks? {Tegu Live}, I introduced you to Tegu and their awesome Tegu Live promotion right now. Not only for product promotion, Tegu Live allows you to see how Tegu works and gives you ideas on what to build with these blocks. And remember, through Twitter and Facebook, you can request the block builder to create anything you’d like. It’s fun to watch but warning, it’s addicting too!

Tegu blocks seem like a simple invention, yet the educational and creative benefits make this one top block in my eyes. Plus, the size makes them pretty much impossible to choke on, for younger kids. Tegu blocks are made with such pristine care and quality, these blocks could easily become a heirloom and keepsake. My family got the The Original 52 pc. set of Tegu blocks {$100}, yet there is also the ‘Discovery Set’ which includes 26 Tegu blocks {$50}. That may seem a little pricey, yet once you see the features, the quality and the fact that all ages can play with them, I feel it’s worth it. And, for every purchase, Tegu will plant 12 trees in Honduras or fund one day of school for a child. Doesn’t that just make these blocks that much cooler?

Disclosure: I was provided with product to facilitate this post, opinions are my own.

  23. He’s building a baby dino in its egg. Some of those past creations are pretty awesome! Thanks for the chance to win!

  24. They were not building when I checked and it said they would be back on Monday. I did chuckle at the Welcome back ashore Carnival Cruise ship they built. Probably the people on that cruise would not be quite as amused.

  25. When I first got there he was building a platypus. My favorite was the Christmas Tree. These are really interesting. I think my kids would love ’em!

  32. Today they are building with Tegu tints, they’re building a Painter’s Palette right now.

  33. He’s currently building a pirate ship from the new Tegu Tints. My favorite has to be the Delorean he built for me a few days ago. I loved it!

  34. Our favorite creations are the two built live at our request–a convertible on Friday, and a train locomotive today.

  37. I really like the duck best. It appears others do as well. Very cool

  38. Lysol Mission for Health –
    Funny I just bought all Lysol products since the “flu” season has started.
    It’s hard to get a 4 and a 2 year old to not touch when we go out.
    Wash wash wash and wash is my mantra all the time.

    We especially love the “top and bottom” song from NicJr.
    (sing to the tune of Fare Jacques)
    Top and bottom, top and bottom,
    in between, in between,
    rub them all together, rub them all together,
    now you’re clean, squeaky clean.

    I also like Tegu and my organized chaos on FB and follow you via google connect and email.
