Timberdoodle's review
 
Tegu STEAM Forty-Two-Piece Set
Combine striking Honduran hardwoods with strong, invisible magnets and you have set the stage for hours of imaginative play. This Timberdoodle exclusive set includes our Tegu STEAM book with 36 models plus bonus models to build.

It's Also a Puzzle
Any wooden block has the potential to improve children's math, language, and creativity skills. But no other blocks can defy gravity like Tegu's. And because of polarity, trying to get two blocks to connect adds a curious puzzle feature to block building!

Safe for All Ages
Built to inspire whimsical play for generations, Tegu's natural colors, smooth finish, and very simple design make it stand out from all that is ubiquitous and short-lived. The Tegu STEAM contains forty-two blocks in eight shapes with multiple neodymium magnets safely embedded within the beautiful natural wood (see image for details), including four wheels to get those models moving.

What fun! November 10, 2015
Reviewer: Brandi  
I wish I had these when I was young. These are sturdy with strong magnets and beautiful colors. The puzzles (pictures of things to build) are cute, creative, and fun. My daughter greatly enjoys playing with these both for the challenge and when making her own creations.

Love It! September 15, 2015
Reviewer: Beth W.  
We love this set! The Tegu blocks are one of our favorite things to get out in the evening, after all the toys are put away for the day, and play for 15 minutes or so before time to get the kids ready for bed. My two-and-five-year old girls have the greatest time with these blocks, whether they are following the guide or building independently, and my engineer husband enjoys using them to create buildings that defy gravity! I have been looking at these blocks in stores for months, wanting them but wondering if they were worth the high price tag. Well, they are worth all that and more! We may eventually have to get a second set!

Family Favorite! September 26, 2014
Reviewer: Tracy  
We purchased the complete K curriculum package, and of all the items, the Tegu Excursion (or as my daughter calls them, "magneto blocks", lol) are by far our favorite item. My daughter has played with them daily since beginning school a month ago and has yet to tire of them. We considered purchasing another set so that she can expand her constructions, but they are a bit pricey (which is the only negative I see).

Love these! June 27, 2014
Reviewer: Danielle C.  
Love all the learning aspects of these vs normal building blocks. My kids (4&2) love building from the e-book. They play with them while I read out loud (and I've found they listen better!), they learn about magnets, the creativity with them is endless, and they are very well made. A unique spin on traditional building and well worth the investment!

LOVE THIS SET!!! May 7, 2014
Reviewer: Heather S.  
Both of my kids (5 & 3yrs) love playing with these blocks. It is always fun seeing their newest creations. They are so proud of their accomplishments when they have finished building a racecar or a train or a castle! I actually have to have them put the blocks away so they will eat lunch they love these blocks so much.
