Tegu Magnetic Blocks Review

In Kids, Toys by Esther Carlstone3 Comments

Savvy Sassy Sponsored Post Have you heard of Tegu blocks? I’m sure you’ve seen them at some point. I’m always picking them up and putting them down, so when I had the opportunity to try them out, I couldn’t resist. And my honest review? I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get these for my daughter. Not only are these magnetic wooden blocks aesthetically pleasing for design-minded parents (because that’s what’s really important, right?), they’re an ingenious toy that will keep your little one entertained for way longer than their usual plastic toys.Tegu Magnetic Blocks

The Pocket Pouch set we received consists of 4 cube blocks and 4 flatter, rectangle shapes. The possibilities for play are endless, and the fact that they’re magnetic? Genius. No more scrambling for lost or fallen pieces at the restaurant for parents or cries of frustration from kids. And even my two-year-old can attach them together with no problem. I was super impressed at how these seemingly simple blocks sparked the imagination of my toddler. One second it’s “Look Mommy, I made a giraffe” then the next “It’s a plane!” Heck, even I had fun making imaginary animals with them! They come packaged in an adorable felt case that makes transporting them even that much easier.


The origin of the company is an inspirational story in and of itself. Founded in 2010, Tegu is a for-profit business conceived by co-founder Chris Haughey after a visit to Honduras. Haughey felt strongly about starting a business that would change the lives of Hondurans by paying them a living wage and offering opportunities for long-term career growth, and thus Tegu was born. The name comes from the capital city of Honduras, Tegucigalpa, where all of the blocks are manufactured. How cool is that?! I always feel good knowing I’m supporting a product that’s contributing the greater good of the developing world at large, don’t you?

I really can’t recommend this product highly enough, and hope you get a chance to try them out too!
