Tegu 42-piece Set in Sunset

Tegu

£99.00

This pack of magnetic wooden shapes by Tegu is so versatile. It brings 42 pieces in all kinds of shapes and wheels so lots of potential builds can be made from this pack. You can create huge constructions or cars or landcapes.

The powerful magnets within each wooden block encourage us to imagine all kinds of possibilities. The opposing forces of the magnets means you can build something that chases the other. 

This open-ended nature of play puts a great twist on the classic Montessori building block, as well as introducing children of all ages to the fascination behind science as they naturally ask questions about the magnets inside. Younger children can start by developing their fine motor skills, as they learn to stack side by side or create tall towers. The range of shapes within this set introduces younger children to basic shapes, and older children to more complicated shapes such as the parallelogram. An interest in engineering and architecture will automatically be investigated - although we will just calling it playing and building!

As well as feeding a child's natural curiosity, Tegu magnetic blocks also spark children's creativity and imagination as they incorporate other toys and models to create fantastic story-telling scenes, from homes to space stations to jungles, garages and more. 

A wonderful Montessori toy, great for home educators to help children discover and love maths, physics and fractions, problem-solving through play.

The tints set features bright shades of green, yellow, orange and pink, and is manufactured in the independent fair trade toy factory in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

ABOUT the BRAND

Sustainability, social change and a love of play are key to Tegu. From hand selecting every single tree with local Honduran cooperatives, where a single tree can create over 1200 sets of blocks, to planting up to 10 trees for each set sold. Tegu only purchases wood from FSC certified companies and uses a water-based lacquer incorporated with colour pigments, so the blocks are all non-toxic. The original Tegu block is 30mmx30mm – the perfect size for little hands, and this forms the basis for every single Tegu block made. Each magnet is specifically position within the block to aid play. Watch as your child discovers scale, fractions, fine motor skills, design and engineering, without even realising!
