The Simple Joys of Wooden Blocks

Clark boy visited his old grandpa for a couple of days several weeks ago.  Poppa likes to have something new for Clark each time he visits and last trip it was magnetic blocks.


Manufactured by TEGU in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and available on Amazon, each piece of fine wood, softly finished with rounded edges in pastel colors contains a magnet.

Each piece follows the rules of magnetism – certain sides will attract others or repel them.  One can build according to one’s imagination.

Look poppa!  They stick together all by themselves!!



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    That’s a great interactive toy, Frank. I used to build similar (non-magnetic) blocks for our grandson. But all he wanted to do was laugh when he knocked them over. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Frank, a by the by about cookies and marketing.
    Just after your video clip appeared by accident on my blog, I got an email from a company in China. They asked me to review a product for them. No prizes for guessing that it was a magnetic wooden block toy! Best wishes, Pete. 🙂
