What is Tegu? We at Hot Toy Guide wondered the same thing when we first discovered them a few weeks ago. The simplest way to describe Tegu is that they are well-design wooden construction pieces that attach magnetically to each other. The best thing is that the magnets are inside the wood, not exposed. This makes the pieces safer, more aesthetic, and longer lasting.
Other Advantages to buying Tegu
Although Tegu toys are clearly well designed, premium products (and which come with a higher price tag) they are made with social responsibility in mind. When you buy a Tegu product you are given the opportunity to direct a portion of the proceeds to two Tegu initiatives: reforestation and education for the impoverished. Tegu products are made in Honduras, from non-endangered wood. The company is dedicated to be a good corporate citizen. They are so transparent with their operations that they even invite people to visit the manufacturing site in Honduras.
The Tegu 42-piece tinted play set is a great starting point. It offers enough pieces to build some interesting objects, but not too much to break your bank.
This 8-Piece Tegu travel set has enough pieces for some casual playtime when you’re on the go, such as in a car or on a plane. The handy carrying case keeps everything together (and it looks great too).
Not all Tegu sets are free-form construction sets. The Tegu Skyhook is a mini-helicopter that enhances the play experience of the other Tegu construction sets. It’s a fun addition that kids will love.
