Jessica Loves: Tegu Blocks

jlovestegu1
Wooden toys have long been the choice of eco-conscious parents. But Tegu Blocks go a step (or five!) beyond the norm. First, the toys: These wooden blocks will push and pull your baby’s imagination. Beautifully crafted and intellectually stimulating for baby and kids, these blocks have a hidden magnet inside that seem to magically snap together. It’s hard to explain until you feel them, but it makes building so much more addictive and opens up a world of creative possibilities. Their entire business model is built around social responsibility and helping Honduras, where they’ve based their factories. Tegu does not use endangered wood, yet they have a “give-back” program to help with reforestation and sustainability. When you buy, you’re given the option to direct a portion of the proceeds to two initiatives:

1) Reforestation:

Tegu will plant 12 trees in Honduras. There’s even a counter on Tegu.com that shows how many trees customers have helped plant to date. or

2) Education for the impoverished

The company will fund one day of school for a child who would otherwise work on a trash dump near the city of Tegucigalpa. Yes, they’re more expensive than your average plastic toy (starter sets begin at $32). But these are toys you’ll pass from child to child that you can feel good about—not just your average throwaways that’ll get lost in the toy chest. Find out more and buy at Tegu.com.
