Natural materials are making a foray into toys with the launch of a new building block called Earth Blocks, which can be snapped together to create different shapes and structures. They are very similar to Lego but provide an eco-friendly alternative, with softer edges and muted, natural colors.

LEGO-Like Earth Blocks Use Natural Materials In Toys

Developed by Japanese design studio Colors Tokyo, the blocks are made from a composite of the bark of the cedar tree, compressed dust from sawed-off cedar logs, coffee beans and green tea leaves. These natural materials are blended with polypropylene to maintain a rigid shape. Earth Blocks are currently available in just one shape and size, and you can get a pack of 50 from the Guggenheim museum for $30.
