It’s been far too long since I updated everyone on Tegu’s developments. Last year was mad scramble, and keeping up with orders and opening Tegu up to the retail store market was both exciting an exhilarating. In meeting the holiday 2010 rush, Tegu’s factory ballooned to 50+ workers and our little team here in the States was taxed to the hilt. And then there was New Year’s and the calendar started anew.
We’re psyched to say that Tegu blocks made their debut all over the world last year, and, as you can see below, they even hitch-hiked their way to South Africa last summer for the World Cup.
Today, it is April 2nd, 2011. With 5 trade shows (ATL Gift, CA Gift, NY Gift (winner, Best Toy), Nuremberg Toy, NY Toy) already notched in our belt for the year, our team in the States has necessarily grown, and we’re on the verge of taking real office space in Darien, CT. Yes, we’re sad to be leaving my modified sun porch in Rowayton, CT, but duty calls. Once we open the space, we’ll do a launch party of sorts and we’ll be sure to post here the details of that event. We’re incredibly grateful for the support of our fans, our friends, our family, and we’re totally stoked to be working on some new products for you and your children. We’d love to share more with you about them now, but we’ll keep that for another post.
Suffice it to say, the Blog is once again live (RSS it if you haven’t), and we’re delighted to use it for keeping all informed of our progress. Of course, please do visit us on Facebook and Twitter, where we offer specials and promos and announcements that you might not find on Tegu.com. See you soon!
