BrickStix {Giveaway}

Legos and building blocks of any kind are a favorite of boys {and girls} everywhere. I remember my brothers building with them when they were younger and making large structures and intricate vehicles. All of them had one thing in common. They were plain- red, green, blue, and yellow.

That’s why I like BrickStix. They take plain bricks and turn them into whatever you want them to be. I got the chance to see how they worked when I was at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair and fell in love with these little things. They are stick on decals that are easily removable and much better than stickers because they can be used over and over again. They come in themed packs and are really affordable. {I think they would make a great stocking stuffer!}

You know what makes these BrickStix even cooler? This award winning idea came from a nine year old kid! Awesome product, Greyson!
