Reach And Teach is so glad to have Tegu products in our shop. Watching a little child start to play with these the other day was amazing. He began building immediately but not just building... learning. Because each piece has a magnet and can only connect to other pieces in certain ways he began experimenting with all of the pieces, figuring out combinations that worked, and discovering how to create different shapes and patterns.
The ability to build beyond the traditional constraints of gravity is incredibly liberating; now you can build out, not just up! Also, working with the polarity of the magnets on the fly is a fun challenge; it generates more critical thinking and educational opportunities than you might expect, and critical thinking is good!
The 14-Piece Set is an introductory building set, perfect for getting to know and love the Tegu magnetic wooden blocks system.
And... Tegu products are made in Honduras in a community that the owners of the company fell in love with and decided to stay in. This is fair trade at its finest!
