Tegu Magnetic 24 Piece Wooden Block Set, Blossom
Our kids love these blocks and you can feel good about supporting this company. Super cool, high quality blocks that have magnets in them so kids can let their inner engineers run wild!
Tegu’s magnetic blocks are awesome, so I would recommend them even if they didn’t have a heart warming and inspiring origination story, use environmentally sustainable practices, and promote recycling and reuse of materials. The owners, two brothers, started their journey with the question, “Could we create a for-profit company based in Honduras that would foster a positive social impact through its business?” According to the CIA fact book, Honduras is the 170th poorest country in the world. The company uses environmentally sustainable practices to harvest the wood for their blocks and other toys, using local hardwood that is abundant in Honduran forests. Also, they will accept their used products, in fact they are pleading with customers (see the bottom of the FAQs) not to throw their blocks away. Tegu will pay the shipping so they can renew their blocks and reuse them rather than having them end up in a landfill. Finally, their product is thoughtfully designed and very high quality, a toy that is timeless and will entertain kids and nurture their imaginations for hours on end. A great product that you can feel good about buying this holiday season!

Details: Tegu blocks are built to foster curiosity. The mystery of magnets offers an experience that starts with Marvel and joy. The very first "click-clack" of two blocks coming together sparks an instant magical discovery. Simple magnets and blocks become so much more, and boundless play is off and running. Tegu has reinvented the wooden block in a way that brings new life to a favored classic. By safely embedding magnets into each piece, Tegu blocks become curiously attractive for both kids and kids at heart. Defy gravity and push your imagination in ways never before possible. No instruction manuals or electronics; just toys that demand imagination and inspire limitless creativity across all ages. Open-ended play is endangered, but we're bringing it back. Created with beautiful sustainably sourced hardwoods and safe water-based finishes, these blocks have proven wildly addictive for kids (and kids at heart) and will encourage the simple joy of creating for generations. This set includes 24 blocks in six shapes: 4 Medium columns, 4 short planks, 6 long planks, 4 Mega planks, 4 cubes and 2 Parallelograms.
