Giftable for all. Moms, graduates, teachers. The Tegu Pocket Pouch Prism. School’s (almost) out! Celebrate with Tegu. The Pocket Pouches from Tegu are great gifts for all ages!

Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6-10, and tell the teacher in your child’s life how much you appreciate his or her hard work in the classroom this year. Do you remember the teacher who made math ‘click’ for you? Or physics? Or spelling? Teachers provide an amazing foundation and the building blocks for kids to grow.

Celebrate Mother’s Day, May 12, and tell your mom how much you love her. She holds your family together with that magnetic force called love.

Celebrate the graduate. From preschool to grad-school, graduation is more a beginning than an end. We want to say, keep learning, dreaming, creating and growing. We hope no matter how old you get, that you will always stay a kid at heart.

So give Tegu to celebrate and say thank you. Get a free Pocket Pouch Prism Nelson when you spend $30 on through May 6, 2013. Buy one for your mom and get one for your teacher. Or buy one for your favorite graduate and keep one for yourself!

Did you know Tegu Blocks make really fun desk toys? It’s true! The most beautifully designed paperweight in the office will attract more than just paperclips. These magnetic wooden toys will get creativity flowing and help you avoid any mental-blocks!

Your beautiful wooden Tegu Blocks will also look right at home on a coffee table, functioning as a conversation piece or fun game. In recent New York Times article “Building Blocks,” architect Michael Arad mentioned Tegu Blocks as blocks that “tend to be more aesthetically appealing, so the adults at home don’t mind if the blocks are left out for days on end.”

Best toy company of the year?! :) See our 2012 Annual Report

Maybe you have been with us since our very first magnetic wooden block set launched in 2009, or maybe you had never heard of Tegu before receiving a set for Christmas last year. However long it has been, we want to take a moment to say thank you! 2012 was a big year at Tegu, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

People are first drawn to Tegu for many different reasons. Our social mission in Honduras. Our desire to foster creativity and help equip your children through open-ended play. Our eco-friendly and sustainable practices. Our simply beautiful design. We are taking these things seriously, and having fun doing it!

Thank you for caring about these things too. Thank you for introducing Tegu Blocks into the lives of your family and friends. We look forward to many years together ahead! We love being a toy that children return to year after year and we love seeing the way our building system grows with a child as their imagination grows. We look forward to seeing their children play with Tegu. Yes, that’s right! We are confident in the heirloom quality of our product and we are creating a toy company designed to be around 100+ years from now!

Before we get ahead of ourselves, we want to celebrate 2012. Starting tomorrow we will be sharing fun facts from our 2012 annual report and hosting 24 hour promotions to let you know how much we appreciate you!
