Best in Show: Brickstuff

On the subject of building tools Lego's are obviously a fantastic choice for young kids. It hardly matters what you're building Lego can help you do it. That's why I was so delighted to find Brickstuff at the Chicago Toy Fair on the other side of the hall from us.

Brickstuff makes fantastic little light kits to illuminate your Lego creations. You can use different colored lights, wend them in and out of your designs they're really fun. You can program the lights to do different patterns. They're a perfect addition or stocking stuffer for child loves to build.

I met the couple making them the last 3 years at their booth, and the husband has a background in electronics. As a new inventor myself, it's great to meet others on their journey and I wish them much luck with this clever and timely innovation.
