We’ve talked about Tegu plenty of times, but since it’s my job to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest, today we’re talking about the launch of Tegu’s newest Explorer and Endeavor sets!
To celebrate the launch of these new sets, Tegu sent out some samples of the 40 piece Explorer Sets and 22 piece Endeavor Sets and challenged us to a Summer Building Contest. The winner will be selected at random and will receive a $300+ Tegu bundle to be used as a giveaway prize for their readers (which of course I hope will be you all!).
The Endeavor sets include some longer pieces than were part of the original Tegu sets and the Explorer set also has some of the new angled pieces. Both sets are available in all of Tegu’s color combinations. I was thrilled to get my hands on an Explorer Set and I had fun playing around with the new pieces with all of my boys– husband included! We had a lot of fun seeing how the creative possibilities differ from those of an original set (which we’ve had for a while now). During our first go, my husband and I morphed an airplane design into this cute little tugboat.
Finally, we put together this awesome doggie that took great advantage of the new extra long pieces and the angled blocks as well!
This is the one that I submitted as my building contest entry! You can see it and the other entries on Tegu’s blog. Voting in the Summer Building Contest starts right now and goes until July 3th. Voting for your favorite will also enter you to win and Explorer or Endeavor Set. If you want to vote for our doggie, leave a comment with BuyModernBaby on the contest page!
While you’re on the Tegu site, you can purchase any of their sets for 20% off with our special discount code… TEGUMODBABY. I still don’t have the Magnetic Wooden Wheels, so this would be a great time for me to get some of those as well.
Please excuse the photo quality above. I had to use my iPhone because our DSLR is in the shop after a calamity during our vacation earlier this month- eep!
Tegu provided the block sets for our participation in this contest.
