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
