EverBlock: Finally, Giant LEGO Bricks For Building Functional Objects

everblock-1

Early this year, we saw the classic Erector toy supersized for building functional full-sized furniture. And it was glorious. This time around, a company called EverBlock is doing the same using supersized LEGO-like bricks, allowing you to build usable furniture with the same ease you put together your favorite LEGO sets.

A modular furniture system, it lets you build, practically, any type of functional furniture and home fixtures without having to mess with hammers, drivers, and hardware fasteners. Like construction toys, each component interlocks, so you simply have to stack and connect the individual parts to make everything from tables to benches to bookshelves to standalone backyard cabins that can serve as your private man-cave.

The EverBlock uses just four types of modules: a full block (12 x 6 x 6 inches), a half block (6 x 6 x 6 inches), a quarter block (3 x 6 x 6 inches), and a finishing cap (12 x 6 inches). Lugs on top of each block and ribbing on the underside allow the modules to fasten securely, allowing you to build a wide selection of blocky shapes, with the finishing caps allowing you to top things off with a flat surface. All of the blocks are hollow, so a single one isn't likely to support very heavy weights, although they do come with internal cross-ribbing for added weight support, along with holes for adding support ribs like dowels and rebars. Plus, you can stagger the blocks to increase strength, similar to the way masons arrange cinder blocks to build strong walls. Basically, it's a properly-designed building material that just happens to use LEGO-style connectors to ease construction.  It's awesome.

Available now, EverBlock can be bought per module or as a set. Prices start at $3.95 for quarter blocks and finishing caps, $5.25 for half-blocks, and $7.25 for full blocks.

    This is so unique, check out the table! It looks very durable, and I’d definitely be interested in building my furniture out of these. They look more interesting and fashionable. Best of all, I can break them down and take them to-go as I please or as necessary. The pricing for these seem super practical too. What’s the weight capacity on them, though? Question: What are these made out of in terms of material? What’s to say or stop people from building houses or vacation homes out of these and occupying them? I don’t see why not, it’s environmentally friendly because it won’t require destroying as much nature, and you can take it to-go whenever you please! Really neat, and I appreciate how they offer respectable tools and pieces to support, secure, and ensure the safety and connectivity of each block or piece.

    The kids could still get a kick out of these even though grown ups are in the designer’s mind. Imagine the fort they could make! But seriously, I am always telling my kids to stop complaining about this and that – and I say “Why dont you go build a couch or something” well, here we go, they could do that with these.

    I’m thinking these would be fun to make if you had the money to spend on molding them into shape. I would love to have some of these, and I would make the seating comfortable, but not quite big enough to lay down on. I HATE WHEN PEOPLE SLEEP ON THE COUCH!!

    i love this! i can’t tell if i like this more than the paper machete technology products though. these look so much more large and sturdy though than other similar products. i love the colors and the picture where they used this as a table looks amazing, you can’t even tell that it’s made from these building blocks! super cool, and definitely would serve as a nice conversation piece in many instances

    What a fun way to customize your own furniture! I bet I could make a pretty fun cat toy with these things! These are also great for kids to build their own club house and be able to take down, reuse, and remake into several other items. I remember having them cheap cardboard ones in kindergarten. These are so much better!

    These are fantastic. I wonder what the neighbors would think if I built a giant transport ship in my back yard!

    haha lego they’d probably think you’re getting ready for a great-big storm! i’d love to use these to set up a treehouse/playhouse for my kids inside and or outside though, now that you mention it. it really seems like the skies the limit with this, really awesome! i remember as a kid i’d use cardboard boxes and tools to build club-houses, ‘stands’, and other things to play in and along with my friends and family with. a big imagination goes a very long way! pretty cool how their last product picture shows a simulator picture of what a house built out of it would look like. and why not!? how well would these handle up against natural-weathering though lol?

    imagine building an entire office space out of this–including the exterior haha! i really like the look, and it appears easy to assemble too. that’s good that they have added security features and locking mechanisms in them–it seems much more practical. plus, i get the sense that these are heavy enough to stay in place without becoming a hazard. the price seems OK, i guess it just all depends on what it is exactly that you’re trying to build ya know? i remember the Erectory toys being released, but these ones seem much more colorful and just overall more fun or appealing to look at! thats crazy that its already built out of legitimate building material–i guess i can see the price justified in this then if thats the case.
