Tegu Revolutionizes the Wooden Car with Dart

I did not grow up with a lot of toys. My kids, on the other hand, are fortunate to be able to play not just with a variety of toys, but with incredibly innovative ones. By far, one of the favorite toys I’ve discovered is by Tegu. I love these wooden blocks – they’re magnetic.

We received the Dart by Tegu to review. I can not tell you how excited I was when I opened the package. I’ve been drooling over Tegu since I discovered them last year. What makes it so special? Well, it’s all in the built-in magnets. There are more than a handful of manufacturers of wooden blocks – from Etsy artisans to international brands. However, the Tegu blocks have magnets that allow them to stick to each other.

I initially put the pieces together to form the Dart. However, soon enough, Big B began to create his own masterpieces from the blocks. We took the Dart with us to a restaurant to keep him busy while we were waiting. He just could not keep his hands off these.

Favorite features

  • Made from eco-friendly and sustainable material – wood
  • Safe, non-toxic, water-based lacquers
  • Magnet built in to the blocks helps keep structures intact
  • Kid-powered; has no bells and whistles and needs no batteries
  • Blocks are durable

The price point for the Dart is $32. For a wooden vehicle of its size, it’s kind of expensive. For a set of blocks and wheels with unlimited possibility, it’s definitely a value. Since receiving this set for review, the kids have received a bigger set for Christmas from their godparents. Little B loves to play with these. He is fascinated with the clicking sound the blocks make when you put them together. As for Big B, his creativity continues to amaze me. I can not recommend this toy enough. Tegu blocks are a great gift for both boys and girls, of any age.
