Blocks are always a great gift idea. They are classic and provide kids an opportunity for creative and imaginative play. Not to mention, they can easily be stored and put up for sanity sake. But, what about a block that takes it a step further? What about blocks that were magnetic and held together the form you put them in? We are talking about quite possibly the smartest blocks I have ever seen! These blocks exist and have a super cool name: tegu.
I have to tell you that these blocks have held a captive audience every single day for hours since we received them. The best part is that they have been great for both Graham (age 6 ) and Davis (age 3). These blocks are not only smart and versatile, but they have add-ons that make play even more fun. Add in magnetic wheels to create your very own vehicles. The boys enjoy making their own version of motorcycles and super trucks. If you need a more concrete vehicle tegu also sales wooden car sets to go with the blocks.
If you have preschool and elementary school aged children you will also appreciate the cube sets. They can use them for creative play, but you can also use them in practicing math skills. Many teachers still use the plastic cubes for counting and sorting. Purchase different colors to add to the learning fun!
These smart blocks have even taken care of the “mess” issue. The Wooden Toy Carrying Case makes it perfect for toting your tegu blocks to grandmas, the babysitter or on vacation. Davis has been toting them pretty much everywhere.
Starter sets begin at $25 and Larger Sets start at $60. I can tell you that every penny is well worth it with these quality blocks that go beyond the ordinary. What a perfect Christmas or birthday gift idea.
