I briefly mentioned Tegu blocks in my ABC Kids Expo 2010 Favorite Toys Roundup but I didn’t really convey to you how awesome they are and that every child (and most adults) should have a set of Tegu blocks in their toy collection. In a nutshell, these are beautiful wooden blocks with magnets inside, and the magic of the magnet is how it expands the building possibilities of the classic wooden block. Just take a look to get the idea:
Right now the blocks are available in two colors: natural (left) and mahogany (right), and in two package sizes: original (52 blocks) and the smaller discovery set (26 blocks).
They will soon offer a smaller sample package as well as colored blocks.
I highly recommend starting off with an original set right now. The natural color is $100 and the mahogany is $125. The natural discovery set is $55 and the mahogany discovery set is $70. You can order now with our amazon affiliate link. This is bound to be a favorite holiday gift as well as a toy that is treasured for a lifetime. I’ve added Tegu blocks to my list of great blocks sets on buymoderntoys, where you can find my other great toy suggestions.
