Building blocks are a doorway to creativity and imagination. Playing with blocks not only keeps the little ones happy and engaged but helps to nurture their cognitive skills as well. What you see above is one such building block phenomenon called Tegu which unlike plastic is made of wood and magnets. Yes, you could build whatever you want with these amazing pieces just like the shown examples!
The wood for the Tegu blocks are derived from the sustainably maintained tropical forests of Honduras while the colors used are non-toxic and water based. You can’t see the magnets, right? Well those have been smartly concealed within the smooth edged wood pieces [and thus cannot be seen]. What more? The blocks come in a variety of shapes and thus widens the scope of creativity. Also the presence of magnets makes it a snap to construct or dislodge without hurting the tiny fingers.
The minds behind this adorable play set are of Chris Haughey and Will Haughey. They employ natives of Honduras for manufacturing this eco-friendly product. Thus in addition to bringing smiles to kids, Tegu also helps families in Honduras in providing a means of livelihood. If you are interested in lending a helping hand to communities of Honduras then you could order a set because for each set bought the program makes it possible either to send a child to school for a day or plant a tree in Honduras itself. You would be happy to know that “through a partnership with Trees For The Future Tegu has planted over 6,000 trees.”
