EverBlock Systems

What you have here are super-sized Legos.


The website for EverBlock Systems features some vaguely corporate language: "Simplicity of design and construction is at the core of the company's view of the world, and we want to make it easy to tap into people's imagination and love for creating new objects."

How, you might ask? By enabling "companies and people everywhere to build large sized objects using a series of universal building blocks."

Look past the slick site design and techie buzzwords, and what you have are super-sized Legos.

The smallest blocks measure 3 inches by 6 inches and max out at 12 inches by 6 inches, and cost $3.95 and $7.25 per block, respectively. Bulk packages are available, including 18 full blocks for $125.10 or 26 mixed blocks for $155.90.

Special accessories are also available, including pieces to construct shelves and desks. Beyond that, if you can think it up, you can build it—just like you were a kid, but these blocks are a lot harder to lose (and step on) than the itty-bitty ones you played with as a kid.
