Tegu introduced the world’s first magnetic wooden construction system, and is now adding an exciting new dimension to its award-winning magnetic play experience. The Tegu Mobility line launches magnetic wooden wheels, enabling builders to take their Tegu creations to the streets. With Mobility, beautifully crafted wheels magically click onto any Tegu block creation, instantly transforming it into a mobile masterpiece. Fully compatible with the existing magnetic building system, these wheels deliver hours of fun as they mobilize any creation to delight builders young and old. With 10 classic Tegu blocks, a signature magnetic styling top, and 4 magnetic wooden wheels, Hatch is a member of the Compact Line of Tegu Mobility. Deconstruct Hatch and click the wheels on and off to create any number of mobile creations. Magnetic connections make racing and crashing as fun as building. Hatch integrates seamlessly with the existing line of Tegu blocks. The magnetic wooden blocks inspire open-ended play. With the intriguing combination of wood and magnets there are no limits to what can be created. Made with beautiful Honduran hardwoods and safe water-based finishes, these blocks have proven wildly addictive for kids (and kids at heart) and will encourage the simple joy of creating for generations. Tegu blocks exceed all safety requirements mandated by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA); all the magnets are safely embedded inside responsibly sourced hardwoods and all the coatings are water-based and non-toxic. As times have changed and toys have evolved, blocks have survived as a playroom mainstay due to their inherent simplicity and developmental appropriateness for a range of ages and abilities. Tegu has taken a good thing and made it great. By creating a building system rather than a kit of parts, the possibilities with Tegu blocks are limited only by the builder’s imagination.

 

In 2006, Tegu co-founder Chris Haughey returned from Honduras with a vision to create a for-profit business that would have a transforming effect on the lives of Hondurans. Six years later, not only has Tegu electrified the toy market with the introduction of its magnetic wooden blocks, but, in doing so, Chris and his brother Will have delivered on their commitment to make a lasting difference in Honduras and to its economy. From the fully independent toy factory that has been established just outside Tegucigalpa, to the partnership with a local school, they are in Honduras by choice, and they are there to stay. They pay employees a living wage and prioritize long-term career growth and development rather than simple task-based jobs. Tegu is bringing world-class employment standards to Central America. It’s not a handout—it’s a helping hand. When harvested responsibly, wood is the most sustainable material available. That’s why the company works with local Honduran cooperatives who individually hand pick each mature tree for use. These cooperatives are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and their process facilitates the forest’s natural regeneration cycle. Additionally, they have partnered with local communities to support reforestation, donating a portion of revenue to replanting efforts when Tegu blocks are sold. “Click-Clack.” It’s the iconic sound of two Tegu blocks coming together. Tegu has reinvented the wooden block in a way that brings new life to a favored classic. Let the magical combination of magnets and beautiful Honduran hardwoods push and pull imagination in ways never before possible. The magnetic wooden blocks inspire open-ended play at its best.
