When I just started Hip little one I stumbled upon the very exciting Tegu range, at the time it was not available in Australia so I decided not to write about it (no point leaving you all disappointed is there?). Three years on Tegu is still one of the most fabulous toys I have come across and I am glad to say that it is now within our reach too, you can find this hip range at Australian online store Whimsy Child.
So what exactly is Tegu? Tegu is the name of a unique, creative, fun, educational and eco-friendly collection of magnetic wooden building blocks. The blocks come in a range of different sizes, shapes and colours, perfect for teaching children that there is no limit to their imagination. The Tegu concept was born during a visit to Tegucigalpa, Honduras (hence the name) and the blocks are made of sustainable Honduras hardwood.
The wooden blocks are timeless and durable and sure to provide hours of entertainment. You’ll be surprised at all the things you can create with just a few blocks! Keep one of these Tegu Pocket Pouches in your bag and your little one will never be bored again while waiting for doctor or dentist. In saying that, you’ll be hooked on Tegu in no time so you can always grow your Tegu collection with a bigger set like the colourful Endeavour Set (pictured above).
