Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) can get their brick-building fix in new dimensions, with EverBlock, a modular building system that resembles super-sized LEGO bricks.
The EverBlock System comprises four universal parts: a full-sized block (12”L x 6”W x 6”H), a half-sized block (6”L x 6”W x 6”H), a one-quarter sized block (3”L x 6”W x 6”H), and a finishing cap 12”L that allows builders to create flat-top surfaces. Depending on the size, each block varies in weight from 0.5lbs to 2.2lbs.
EverBlocks can be purchased in a wide palette of colors, including some matched to specific Pantone Matching System (PMS) values, as well as metallic gold and silver. The company also offers custom colors for consumers that need to match a specific shade or hue.
Like LEGO bricks, EverBlocks are constructed to be stacked in a variety of shapes, patterns, and sizes. Designs can be modified on the fly and taken apart and reassembled again without requiring tools, adhesives, or special equipment.
Larger design projects can take advantage of each block’s integrated cable channels, which can accommodate LED strips and power cables for lighting effects as well as re-bar and wooden dowels for stability.
The New York-based EverBlock Systems’ online store offers a wide range of options, from individual blocks to building kits. Prices start at $3.95 USD and up.
