Roundup: Tegu's Baltimore Block Party & Mobility Line at aMuse

Posted by aMuse Toys on December 20, 2011 0 Comments

 This past weekend at aMuse Toys was quite eventful. Not only did we have a great time racing and engineering some pretty cool wheeled creations, we got to hang with the amazing Tegu pit crew! Will Haughey and his team are some of the most passionate, energetic and just plain FUN people to be around.

Everyone at aMuse Toys had a blast.  We thank Tegu for the unique play experience they provided our customers and staff.

Tegu Mobility is truly ingenious.  Tegu had already taken the classic wooden block to a new level by adding magnets and now, with its mobility line, the possibilities for play are endless. The addition of wheels to the fascinating connectivity of Tegu blocks enhances play value for everyone --regardless of age.

We are thrilled to announce that the Tegu Mobility line is available in limited quantities at both aMuse Toys locations! We are the ONLY retailer in the country to offer the first run of these amazing new products. If you are not local, don't worry you can score Tegu Mobility online exclusively at tegu.com.

Don't forget to enter Tegu's HOW DO YOU ROLL? SWEEPSTAKES. One lucky winner will work directly with Tegu Designer, Nate Lau, to design Tegu’s next car, for more info click here.


Thanks to our friends at theWAIREHOUSE for documenting the fun on Sunday in Fells Point!
