As a child, one of my most favorite building toys were Lincoln Logs. My brother and I would sit, build and play with them for hours. We would create some very elaborate houses and villages with all our Lincoln Logs. We had so much fun together just using our imaginations. Unfortunately our creations would eventually be destroyed, whether by soldiers taking over the fort, Transformers coming through town or just because the floor would shake. But these new magnetic Tegu blocks now these would be SUPER cool for any kid.
One of the oldest and most reliable toys that children have played with for centuries is the simple wooden block. It’s versatile, safe and most of all fun. While standard wooden blocks are still fun, there have been major innovations and advancements in technology to bring us to where we are now.
The Tegu blocks are an awesome modern twist on a classic toy. These blocks may look simple at first glance, but only when you start to play with them do you realize truly how awesome they are. Tegu blocks come with tiny magnets embedded in the blocks, which means that kids of any can create structures they only ever dreamed of. And with plenty of options, there’s a perfect Tegu set for any family!
What Moms are Saying About Tegu
Christina is a mommy of three who shares fun activities for kids on her YouTube channel, The Purple Alphabet. During her video review of the Tegu blocks, she says “It really encourages your child to think creatively… you’re gonna get a lot of use out of these over the years.”
“Bought these for my 6 year old grandson for Christmas and we now call his creations “the work of a City Planner. ” The different shapes and structures take on the look of city skylines with random items like trees, bridges, etc. Geometry was never so much fun.” -Deborah F.
“My first reaction was “these are pricey!” but they were highly recommended to me so I gave it a go. Now I can tell they will be loved for years. My 3 year old loves stacking them and clicking them together and apart. I even have fun playing with these and I’m an adult. They are high quality and the colors are great.” -Summer H.
The Social Impact
Not only are Tegu blocks fun, but they have a social impact. The business was founded in Honduras with the idea of helping out a country with an unemployment rate of above 30%. Local Hondurans are regularly hired and receive opportunities for growth and leadership within the company. If that weren’t enough, with every purchase of a Tegu product, the company plants more trees or funds a whole day of school for a child without access to education.
With a product this fun and a company that is so caring, it’s hard not to love Tegu, and the products listed here are only the beginning! Be sure to check out the full Tegu catalog to find out which one is right for you.
