Earth lego blocks

Fortunately, Earth Blocks give adult enthusiasts a more sophisticated way to get their stack-and-lock fix. Instead of the brash, kid-friendly colours of their Danish counterparts, Earth Blocks draw on more urbane hues—a palette of greens and browns, mottled, like a forest floor. Not surprisingly, the blocks are made from natural materials—scraps of cedar bark, coffee beans and green-tea leaves—that have been blended with polypropylene for rigidity. The green-tea blocks in particular (which will be available soon) give off a sweet, almost floral fragrance.

Earth Blocks are softer around the edges than the classic toy. As a result, they don’t snap together as tightly as LEGOs do, which makes them less than ideal for making lightsabers. But their uniform shape (the bricks come in just one size) lets them stack beautifully, and the colours blend harmoniously no matter what combination you put them in.

Plus, these toy blocks look more appropriate in a professional setting than miniature figurines with yellow heads. $30 for a box of 50 blocks

  1. An American patent. Rammed Fiber Reinforced Concrete.
    1935 R.C. BUYER US2,019,653A

    Very simular to you LEGO block, rammed earth block.

  2. PATENT 3,005,282. In the 1060’s. Two types of blocks. The usual hollow blocks with “female”
    connecting legs. The other block laid on the next course, has both sides having a “male” connecting
    legs.
    The building industry uses traditional construction, the same idea as the Chinese roofs curving to
    match the ancient hutches. No one is usually allowed to be the modern day genus such as Godtfred
    Kirk Christiansen, Oct. 24, 1961, invented Toy Building Brick. Filed July 28, 1958. FIG. 1.
