Magnetic Block Sets + Tote
Tegu blocks are about more than child's play. Whether you're 3 or 103, these sustainably sourced, eco-friendly magnetic wood blocks foster creativity, problem-solving and a connection with worlds both in the imagination and nations away.
New England-based brothers Chris and Will Haughey launched Tegu Toyworks in 2009 to not only create environmentally sound toys that inspire unscripted play. They also wanted to address unemployment, education, the neglected natural and human resources and urgency for entrepreneurship in a faraway country they were in love with, Honduras. You geography buffs might spot where the company name draws from: the Honduran capitol of Tegucigalpa, commonly known as Tegus. In an effort to preserve rain forests in that country, each tree used in Tegu products is selected by local Honduran tree cooperatives and for every one tree used, the company replants 100 saplings.
Magnets are safely embedded in each block, and every block is finished in a water-based lacquer that is non-toxic, non-lead and non-plastic.
The critically acclaimed line has won Parents Magazine Choice Silver Honor, Dr. Toy Winner - Best Green Product and Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal - Best Toy Award, among other accolades. Talk about building a better world, one block at a time!
