Jean-Jacques Rousseau once said “The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.” At Tegu, we firmly believe creativity can be a child’s best friend and want to thank educators everywhere for helping develop the creative minds of children, encouraging them to think outside the box and facilitating a “shift toward helping kids become their own content creators, not just content consumers.” Through novel and innovative methods, educators can successfully engage and motivate students on a daily basis–and that’s where Tegu can help.
As times change and teaching aids evolve, blocks still remain a classroom essential. This ‘back-to-basics’ approach to education thrives on blocks’ inherent simplicity and developmental appropriateness for students of all ages and abilities. During the Tegu design process, we observe students in their natural environments and create educational tools that encourage active, inquisitive, and resourceful minds at all grade levels, from kindergarten to graduate schools of visual arts and design. By safely embedding magnets in each piece, Tegu Blocks offer puzzle-like constructive possibilities that challenge students to develop complex, gravity-defying creations—improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills in the process. In fact, Frank Lloyd Wright credited wooden block play for sparking his interest in architecture. Under the guise of ‘fun,’ block play also encourages the development of mathematical and scientific reasoning through geometric exploration, spatial relations, magnetism, and beyond.
Through a series of ‘clicks and clacks,’ Tegu Blocks can be brilliantly simple tools for engaging your entire classroom—and contributing to a new generation of dreamers, doers, innovators, and visionaries. With them, students can articulate their visions and help make their stories into realities. With no instruction manual, Tegu Blocks refuse to impose limitations on a child’s brain, allowing castles—and creativity—to reach new heights. Multidisciplinary by nature, blocks prove highly effective in promoting executive functions and developing social skills from planning and executing a goal to crafting novel solutions to complex problems. Who knows? The next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates could be sitting in your classroom right now, waiting to unleash their creativity on the world.
