Magnetic Block Sets + Tote
Tegu blocks are about more than child's play. Whether you're 3 or 103, these 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 to not only create sustainably sourced toys but also address unemployment, education and the urgency for entrepreneurship in a faraway country they were in love with, Honduras. Named for the capitol, Tegucigalpa, commonly known as Tegus. In an effort to preserve rain forests, each tree used in Tegu products is selected by local cooperatives. And with every purchase, Tegu plants trees with partner Trees for the Future—and the total is half a million trees and counting.
Magnets are safely embedded in each block; blocks finished in a water-based lacquer that is non-toxic, non-lead and non-plastic. Whether it's the 22-block Endeavor Set or the 40-piece Explorer, consider packing them in the Travel Tote, constructed of durable, industrial wool felt. Much acclaimed, the blocks have been honored with Parents Magazine Choice Silver Honor, Dr. Toy “100-Best” and Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal. Talk about building a better world, one block at a time!
