Great for all ages

I bought this for my youngest neice + everyone loved them so I bought a set for my older neice. All the adults love them, too. They'll last forever.

Blocks are great!

by

The almost three-year-old who has these magnets is just fascinated. They keep him happy for long periods of time, for a toddler, and he hasn't tired of them, either. His mom is pleased with the quality of the pieces, too.More > < Less

Great blocks for a young toddler

by

These colorful magnetic shapes help the child's developing dexterity by relying more on creativity than on balancing objects. Frustration with blocks falling over is commonly seen in infants and toddlers because they must be balanced precisely; this toy overcomes that by the use of magnets. Colors are wonderful and a good teaching tool, wood is smooth and the shapes enable multiple configurations that fascinate youngsters. Certainly should be included for budding builders, girls or boys!More > < Less

About Tegu

Reinvented Play

Sometimes you shouldn’t mess with a classic. But in the case of Tegu, they took a classic toy to a far greater place. These sustainable wooden blocks have an ingenious magnetic design and a social mission that has transformed a Honduran community.

The smooth beechwood shapes let kids experiment with the magnetic push and pull. There are endless, wobble-free building possibilities.

Brothers Chris and Will Haughey started their business to better the impoverished Tegucigalpa community—and named their company after it. Workers earn a living wage, but more importantly they get help with long-term career growth and development.

Tegu’s commitment extends to the community—including a partnership with a local school to aid at-risk kids. And, to the environment—Tegu plants 100 trees for each one used to build their blocks.

The Grommet became Tegu's first online partner back in 2009, when Chris and Will’s office was crowded inside a house. It’s wonderful for us to see their continued growth.

These innovative toys are changing the world, one block at a time.
