Winning Wednesdays: Each week I post new giveaways on Wednesdays – most end the following Tuesday. 

We are going to give away one Explorer 40 piece set of Tegu Magnetic Blocks, a $110 Value!!  These are AWESOME blocks!  Since they are magnetic they stick together as you build so you have less chance of them falling over!  My nephew, Charlie, age 2 played with these and they kept him memorized for 45 minutes before he stopped.  Then for about 2 hours he kept going back to them.  My experience with an active 2 year old is they don’t stay with an activity that long!  All the blocks have magnets in them and stick together at the ends!  This set comes in 4 color choices Natural, Nelson, Jungle and Tints!  My favorite are the colorful Nelson Blocks! Here’s a church we built!  Can you see how they are just standing up without proper support?  The roof just stays up!

Tegu is a toy company based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras started by Chris & Wil!  Honduras has an unemployment rate of 30%!  Tegu is helping Honduras by rejuvenating the country socially and environmentally. You can watch this short video to see how and why.  It’s amazing what good a few people can do when they work together! It’s really inspiring!

The magnets in Tegu blocks will also teach your children about magnetic properties – pushing and pulling on each other, sticking to some objects – but not others (we stuck ours to the fridge and ironing board legs), magnetic fields and more!  It will help them bring up questions such as “why don’t they stick to non metallic objects.”

Tegu blocks are great Christmas gifts! Tegu is giving Cuckoo Readers an exclusive deal if you order between November 14 – November 21st you can get 20% off if you use coupon code TeguCuckoo20 AND Shipping is FREE in the Continental U.S.! You can buy different size sets.  They sell a Pocket Set with a carrier that would be fun to have in the car on trips!

You can find some ideas on the Tegu Pinterest Board.  They have one called Hall of Fame that has some great ideas of what people have built with their blocks!

    I tell everyone about Tegu. Here are my top 10 reasons everyone needs Tegu! 1) The company supports the people in Tegucigalpa, Honduras (30% unemployment there) by paying the workers fair wages and giving them a trade. 2) The company gives $ to the schools there so every child can have an education (this is one of the poorest nations). 3) They use eco-friendly dyes. 4) They use sustainable wood. 5) They replant trees. 6) It promotes sharing. 6)It promotes creativity and let’s children use their imaginations. 7) Kids are learning about the use of magnets through play which is building critical thinking skills. 8.) They are also learning about fractions and scale. 9) Playing with these build eye-hand coordination and motor skills. 10) It promotes an interest in engineering and math. There are very few building blocks on the market targeted for girls and the ones that do exist are usually pink. These blocks use colors that make them non-gender specific.
