Tegu - blocks building way more than imaginations
You know, you think a block is a block is a block. Then something like Tegu
comes around and suddenly those regular blocks your kids play with just seem you know...like regular blocks.
If you haven't heard of Tegu, they're the eco-friendly, Honduran-made building blocks
with magnets inside. Which means your kids can be creative as they want to be, unhindered by either boring gravity or 90-degree angles. The blonde hardwood cubes and planks themselves are simple and beautifully smooth and the appeal is remarkable - my three year-old is as captivated as a seven year-old friend.
They're not cheap -- prices are comparable to very good handmade wooden block sets -- but wow, they're amazing. And the cost hasn't stopped the demand; Tegu now is only just back after a 2,500 person waiting list for a set.
I'm also in love with Tegu's authentic commitment to social and ecological action. In fact, the whole company was set up as a way to help support the economy and people of Honduras. Every time you buy a set of blocks, you're asked specify whether you want to plant 12 trees with your purchase through an NGO, or fund a whole day of school for a child who would otherwise be working in a trash dump there.
Bless you Tegu. -LizEco-friendly building
