Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best blocks I've tried After testing a number of yoga blocks over the years, the Gaiam foam blocks are my favorite. They are firm enough not to bend or receive intents easily when pressure is applied but light enough to be easily packed or transported for travel. I like that the colors change often for variety, too! August 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Proper size. I like these blocks because they are the right thickness.  I had some other ones and could not balance properly on them because they were too thin which created a potential for injury.  These blocks more stable, the color is nice, and they seem like they could last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential piece for beginners So glad I purchased the block. It has assisted me with balancing in some of my poses. Very satisfied with this product. August 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent to picture and description; lightweight yet strong for a variety of yoga, stretch and relaxation exercise July 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed While I am not Gaiam's greatest customer, I do own a  light blue yoga block I purchased about eight years ago. It is a very sturdy Essentials Yoga Block and has lasted beyond my expectations. Having said that, I just received what I thought was the same block. It turns out all the specs are the same but Gaiam is not making them as sturdy.  Bummer :( I could have found this same quality locally, which is what I was trying to avoid.  July 18, 2015

Answer: 
The only reason their weights differ is the foam weighs less than the recycled materials. The advantage to using the recycled block is it's Eco friendly and made from recycled materials instead of brand new foam. Some people prefer heavier blocks because they feel like they are getting better support but they both support equally.

In the product description, it says that the 3 color options are: hay, purple, & raspberry. But on the actual order form, in the box for color selection, it reads: hay, purple, & robin's egg. Can I still purchase a set of 2 raspberry blocks?
