Bloxes are building blocks made of interlocking pieces of corrugated cardboard, folded together. Their unique shape and structure make them exceptionally strong and lightweight — you could build yourself a platform to stand on, and then pick it up and move it wherever you need to.
What can you do with them?
Bloxes can connect with each other on all six sides, so you can use them to build walls, benches, tables, tunnels — whatever you can think of. And because the varied surface and complex internal structure helps dampen sound, they’re great for managing acoustics in offices, studios and other places.
How do I put one together!?
We’re working on a good video, but for now, you should be able to follow our assembly instructions; it includes a good photo comic to show you how we do it.
The bloxes story
How did you think of them?
Well, we didn’t. Jef Raskin did. The full story will soon be up on our stories blog.
How do you build with them?
To build a structure with bloxes, simply line up the pegs of two bloxes and push them together. Repeat as necessary. Plus, they’re multi-faceted, so you can build in any direction.
How big are they?
Bloxes measure 9½ inches square when assembled; a pack of 20 will create a 4-by-5 blox wall of approximately 36 inches by 45 inches. Sold in quantities of 20, the unassembled bloxes fit in a 15-inch square box for easy shipping.
How can I get them?
You can buy them from our store on Amazon.com. If you want to see more uses of Bloxes, check out the pics page. Want to talk to a human? Give [email protected] an email.
