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.
