These eye-catching, eco-friendly building blocks  by Tegu  may look like simple wooden stacking blocks that we all remember from childhood, but – despite appearances – these are not your mama’s blocks! Each Tegu block  has a powerful magnet inside, hidden seamlessly inside the painted wood, so that these ingeniously addictive blocks can be snapped together to build amazingly complex shapes that defy gravity. And if that wasn’t awesome enough, there is an added bonus: Tegu blocks  are made from sustainably harvested Honduran hardwoods and provide income to artisans in Honduras. Each time a Tegu  set is ordered, you have the option of sending a child to school for a day or planting a tree to help replenish Honduran forests that have been devastated clear-cutting.
