Move over tiny, tedious LEGO—the giant building blocks of your childhood dreams have finally arrived. Arnon Rosan founded EverBlock, a modular system of large-scale LEGO-like bricks with raised lugs that snap together into life-size furniture and structures. The huge blocks are used as both toys and tools, and can be easily stacked to make almost anything your imagination desires, from an adult fort to a modular indoor office space.
The EverBlock is available in 14 colors and four interlocking parts: the quarter-size (3”L x 6”W x 6”H), half-size (6”L x 6”W x 6”H); full-size (12”L x 6”W x 6”H); and the finishing cap block (12”L x 6”W x 1.1”H). The hollow blocks weigh between a half-pound to 2.2 pounds. Although the adult-sized blocks aren’t made from recycled plastic, they are made from polypropylene, which is a recyclable material. Just like LEGO, the modular system can be taken apart and re-assembled to build numerous objects, and are created with UV inhibitors to allow for outdoor use.
The full-size bricks are also sturdy enough to build bigger structures, however, Everblock recommends staggering the blocks for better stability. Each 12-inch EverBlock has two built-in cable channels to let you thread power cables, add LED strips, or install reinforcement rods for additional support. The modules are water and chemical-resistant.
While we love the concept of adult-sized LEGO bricks, the EverBlock modular building blocks are pricey, so don’t think they’ll be replacing your drywall. The smallest quarter-size block starts at $3.95 and the EverBlock combo sale pack with 26 mixed blocks goes for $155.90. EverBlock also offers rentals for those not quite ready to commit to a purchase. The website includes a virtual builder tool to help people decide on how many bricks they’ll need for a design as well as a how-to-build library with example designs.
