WXERFM, The Point: Inventor Too Young To Attend Toy Fair

by Ben Olson

Greyson MacLean, 11, of Hartland, WI with the help of his family, invented BrickStix – removable stickers for Legos and other bricks toys.

The inventor of colorful, reusable static-cling decals for Lego-type bricks was too young to attend a toy show where his product was featured. Greyson MacLean, inventor of the reusable BrickStix decals, is 11-years-old, and Toy Fair 2011 in New York City required attendees to be 18 or over. Greyson’s decals are now in more than 50 stores in 20 states and his father said retailers in other countries have shown an interest in the decals since last month’s toy fair. The stickers let young builders customize their creations with signs, lettering and artwork; they are also removable and reusable. The family fulfills website orders from a curtained-off area in their basement. The stickers, which you can order at www.brickstix.com, come in three themes – metro, space and transport – and sell for $5.99 per set of 84 stickers.
