Like LEGO, you can use the Everblock to build objects by connecting a series of bricks. Unlike it, the Everblock is sized like slightly-smaller cedar blocks, making it possible to use them to build functional, real-world objects like furniture, walls, and whatever else you can imagine.
Similar to Meccano Home, it’s a set of supersized construction toys that you can connect like their kiddie-sized counterparts. It snaps on easily like LEGOs, too, allowing you to build something, break it down, and rebuild again as much as you’d like.
Unlike LEGOs, there are only four types of modules on Everblock. There’s 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 x 1.25 inches), all of which can be connected to each other to form blocky structures. All the three blocks are hollow with lugs on top, with the cap featuring a flat surface, so it can serve as the top layer for beds, tables, and chairs. Ribbings on the underside of each module allow them to connect with the lugs on the blocks, with added ribbing providing additional weight support.
Each of the blocks come with integrated holes, where you can insert supporting structures like rebars for better structural integrity, allowing you to better strengthen larger structures, like if you want to use it to build stairs to a treehouse or something. You can also use masonry techniques like staggering the blocks to create stronger builds.
The Everblock is available now, both in sets or individual modules. Prices start at $3.95.
