Tegu is a wooden block construction system with a magic ingredient: magnets. This Honduras-based brand creates perfectly-sized blocks with magnets secured deeply inside them, the force and polarity of which allow for construction play above and beyond regular wooden blocks. Children can safely build up, down and out in a way that isn’t possible with traditional block construction. The qualities inherent in the materials give Tegu building projects a scope that is broader, more ambitious and defined by experimentation.
Tegu toys in the One Hundred Toys collection include sets of blocks in different colourways for open-ended construction, as well as baby and toddler-focussed stackers and sorters on wheels. There’s also handy travel-sized sets and pouches for taking your magnetic construction with you on your adventures. The future and stunt team lines feature whizzy vehicles and spacecraft to build and re-imagine in endless configurations.
Tegu is an ethical business based in central America, with all wood being locally and responsibly farmed. All Tegu blocks are designed to work together around a core module of 30mm - just the right size for small hands - so you can keep adding to your collection and nothing gets left behind. It’s this long-term, open-ended approach to play that makes us love Tegu.
