Tegu: Wooden Blocks With A Social Purpose

I have always been a fan of Tegu Blocks. They are to me the wooden block, reinvented. Tegu has reinvented the wooden block in a way that brings new life to a favored classic. The magical combination of magnets and use of the beautiful Honduran hardwoods push and pull together in ways never before possible, letting your children use their imagination. A fav of mine, the pocket pouches which are perfect summertime toy,long car rides and plane trips to family vacation, keeping the kids entertained in a restaurant, and for those rainy days when the kids are stuck inside. Each pouch contains six magnetic blocks for tons of “click clack” fun. You can also rest easy knowing they are made from sustainable wood with non-toxic, water-based lacquers. All sets come in a cool looking, durable felt pouch with four color options, easy to throw into a purse or diaper bag!


Tegu is not only a toy company, they devote revenue back into the Honduran community where the blocks are made in Tegu’s independent toy factory. Tegu’s co-founder Chris Haughey had a vision to create a for-profit business that would have a transforming effect on the lives of Hondurans after a visit there in 2006. Four years later, not only has Tegu electrified the toy market with the introduction of its magnetic wooden blocks, but, in doing so, Chris and his brother Will have delivered on their commitment to make a lasting difference in Honduras and to its economy. Thank you Tegu for giving my kids hours of creative and fun playtime but for also being a “do good company”. I love buying products and knowing that the proceeds go to benefit others in need!
