Product Description

“Click-Clack.” It’s the iconic sound of two Tegu Blocks coming together. 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 Honduran 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 8 blocks in two shapes: 4 Cubes and 4 Short Planks. It's the perfect set for 'thinkering' while on the move (in the car, airplane, traveling, etc.), and it also makes a great desk toy or executive gift for adults. This set is packaged in a beautifully designed pouch large and rigid enough to store the blocks for many years to come. Each set also includes The Tegu Story -- a card containing information about Tegu's social and environmental initiatives. There is something magical about watching a child's imagination unfold. The curiosity. The ingenuity. The creativity. Even more exciting is creating a product that unlocks a child's mind. We exist to create experiences that captivate children in safe, natural and innovative ways. At Tegu, this creativity also meets responsibility. Through socially responsible business practices and humanitarian efforts, we are dedicated to helping the Honduran community with reforestation, education and social outreach initiatives.

Nice while they lasted I guess...
by crí (2 out of 5 stars)

For the price, I would have expected it to last longer. They look stylish and come in a nice felt-like sleve but after a year the magnets started to burst out of the wooden pieces rendering them useless.

Broke in two
by Mamaw (1 out of 5 stars)

It broke after the baby threw it on the floor. It wasnt hit, knocked, or abused in any unconventional way. The baby only started pulling the pieces apart and when he tossed one on the floor it broke in two. I expect better quality with this pricetag.

Wonderful toy that grows with your kids
by Michael Velasquez (5 out of 5 stars)
March 21, 2017

I bought the 8 piece Tegu set on a whim for our oldest son when he was 1 and while they immediately interested him, they were also a little frustrating because he couldn't figure out that only certain sides will stick to each other since they are magnetic. By 2 he was much more adept at using them and integrated the blocks into all his other play (cars, blocks, trains, etc) so we bought bigger Tegu sets to add to his collection whenever they were on sale (these things are expensive). Now at 3 and a half years old, some of the stuff he builds with the blocks are downright impressive and you can tell how much they spark his imagination. We also have a 15 month old son now that fights over them. The Tegu blocks really grow with your kid and even my wife and I often find ourselves playing with them. I'd say these are the most used toys in our household.

Perfect for Restaurants, Travel
by Teacher Lady (5 out of 5 stars)
March 22, 2015

I was hesitant to buy these, since they seemed so pricey for such small toys. I finally bought it to help entertain my 2 year old in restaurants on vacation, and I'm so glad that I did. They are really fun little magnet toys, and they are the perfect size to travel with and to keep in a backpack or diaper bag. I did some research on the company, and the highish price is due to the fact that they actually pay a fair wage and do community building. That's the kind of company I don't mind supporting. This toy will be a big help on our upcoming plane flight. (It's also been an addictive game for the grown ups to fiddle with. We might need to buy another set.)

Very nice!
by KT (5 out of 5 stars)

Edited to add: My 3 year old was completely entertained during my 5 year old's soccer game. They both also just play with them randomly at home. I bought these because they were on sale and had great reviews. Both of my kids (ages 5 and 3) loved them immediately and we will be bringing on long trips or restaurants where they need to be entertained. They are a bit smaller than I expected (I know that I could have read the dimensions first) but my kids do love them. I wouldn't have bought them for full price, though. Also love that it comes with the pouch.

High Quality Magnetic Blocks
by Matt (5 out of 5 stars)
June 12, 2016

This set has exceeded my expectations. I wondered if 8 blocks would be enough to keep anyone entertained but these saves the day on a recent 17 hour car trip. Our 11 month old was fascinated with just two blocks for almost two hours. We put them away and got out the skinny blocks for another segment of the trip and he was entertained and not screaming for another 30 or so minutes.

Our other children also liked them. The 7 year old played with the set for an hour.

The blocks themselves are well constructed. They look and feel like solid wood blocks. If you look very closely, you can see a faint seam where the pieces are closed around a magnet. The magnets are strong enough to stick the blocks together and not fall apart but not so strong little hands can't intentionally release them.

The envelop in which to store the blocks is very well constructed and easy to use. The blocks slip in easily and stay inside the envelop inside the diaper bag.

The blocks themselves aren't what I anticipated but I like them. Because they are magnetized and magnets have poles, You can't build traditional block type structures with them but they are valuable for other forms of exploration and discovery. If you're looking for a building block, these are not for you. I like ECR4KIDS 64 block set for a really sturdy and high quality building block set.

If you're looking for a high impact diaper bag toy that does not make (much) noise, this is a great fit.

Good travel toy
by RD (5 out of 5 stars)
September 5, 2018

Kept my three yr old entertained in flight for 30-50 minutes. Will be saving this for future travels so that it stays special and the novelty doesn't fade. The kid makes different arrangements and imagines it to be different things like plane, train, rocket, cars etc. Just this one set was sufficient. I was afraid the pieces might not be enough, but they are. The packing is travel friendly.

Better than regular blocks for a plane
by T. Ortiz,Top Contributor: Baby (4 out of 5 stars)
June 26, 2017

We bought these for traveling on the plane since they're blocks but magnetic so I was expecting less problems. I will say that we didn't lose any blocks but that was mostly due to me scrambling every time our little guy knocked them down since they're so expensive. They do stick together but my son considered it a challenge he was willing to take on to try and make the blocks separate and fly apart. I think these might be better for a calmer child than mine. That said, if I just gave him a couple of the pieces he would calmly put them together to see what he could build and when you're on a 5 hour flight, even 30 minutes of distraction can be worth it.

I stinking love these. They entertain my kids for hours
by Morgan K (5 out of 5 stars)
October 5, 2016

I stinking love these. They entertain my kids for hours. I wish the larger sets weren't so expensive. Those will have to wait for Christmas. My kids find many variations of things to build with just 8 blocks. They use them on the fridge and dishwasher. We have had a great time finding other magnetic surfaces. This is a great timeless toy.

Totally worth the price.
by MommaBear (5 out of 5 stars)

Totally worth the price. I bought two sets for my twins for when we travel and a 52 piece set. They're perfect for little hands and it keeps them busy forever. They love them. Pictures are the two sets I bought. These are way better than other toys and can grow with them. Could even be used for homeschooling for math. Plan to buy more in the near future!
