Tegu magnetic wooden blocks

The Tegu Story:

It all started with an innocent, curiosity-driven question: “Could we create a for-profit company based in Honduras that would foster a positive social impact through its business?”

Quite an unusual start for a toy company. The result is a set of products that combine sustainably-harvested hardwood and tiny powerful magnets to make building blocks that can defy gravity.

They've even invented magnetic wheels, so that you can create vehicles. I've no idea how well these roll, but it's a fun little gimmick.

Tegu blocks are fairly widely available, and the prices, though a little more expensive than comparable non-magnetic building blocks, do include a sizeable contribution to the Honduras communities.
