After my unexpected bed rest, the family and I took a little vacay to the most perfect place on Earth. (Even with Tropical Storm Lee crashing our party.) While there, I was introduced to Tegu Blocks.
A block set is no longer a block set. Eco-friendly, Honduran made, building blocks with magnets inside. They are offered in a variety of sets (8-52 blocks) and colors (Natural, Mahogany, Jungle or Tinted) and the packaging is cool.
While I love the overall mission and social responsibility of the company, I'm fascinated by the magnets inside! The Bug can build and build without the frustrating factor that regular blocks offer - they fall down with the slightest bump. Look at the amazing-ness...
I'm a little partial to "The Pocket Pouch" set: 8 blocks in 2 shapes (cubes and short planks) packaged in a cute felt bag. At $32, it's not super spendy and you can see if your child likes it. The sets are all interchangeable so it's a great way to test out the toy.
You can buy these online at Tegu or visit their Facebook page.
