A NEW TWIST ON BRICK CONSTRUCTION: RUBIK’S BRIKS BY STRICTLY BRIKS®
Rubik’s Fans Encouraged to Build Their Creativity with Award-Winning Toymaker
3D Play, Pixels and Puzzles will have a new twist in 2018 as Strictly Briks® repurposes the Rubik’s Cube in their world of brick construction. The original Rubik’s Cube has been iconic since the 1980s but Strictly Briks will launch it’s “twist” on the iconic toy with RUBIK’S BRIKS.
The award-winning toymaker is branching out with a new concept beyond building towers (and toppling them down) to include 3D Modeling, colorful pixel images, and challenging Puzzles created in an entirely new way. Each category – 3D Play, Pixels and Puzzles – has multi-level challenges from Beginner to Advanced – just like the Cube itself. Now children ranging from preschool to middle school and beyond can enjoy building a finished product, and advanced puzzles will engage and challenge adults that grew up with the iconic Cube.
With the cube-shaped Rubik’s Briks which allow building in every direction, kids as young as 4-years-old will find new ways to be creative. Parents will appreciate how the 3D Play encourages kids to be creative, imaginative, and a bit adventurous in their construction.
Strictly Briks’ patent pending square Brik Tiles for Pixels and Puzzles, are available in 1x1, 2x2, and 3x3 sizes. They are are easy to remove for simple reuse and for exciting pixel play. They will also highlight the increasing difficulty, making it ideal for every age in the house!
Brian Semling, Founder and CEO of Strictly Briks, is excited about this new range, saying, “Imagine taking apart a Rubik’s Cube and using the colorful cubelets to build in the brick universe. That was our inspiration. We get kids, and kids at heart, to use their imagination to build creative objects in an entirely new way. We also created easy-to-remove new Tile Briks to encourage the design of cool pixel art. Plus these same Tile Briks, with Rubik’s 2x2 and 3x3 patterns, allow kids of all ages to solve challenging puzzles.”
Lori Heiss Tiplady, VP Toys & Publishing at The Smiley Company on behalf of brand owner Rubik’s Brand Limited, says, “A perfect brand extension for the world’s best-selling toy, Rubik’s Briks features an innovative new Cube-shaped design for the next generation of builders, and the full range of products will challenge youngsters’ creativity, engage their brains and inspire them to think outside the Cube!”
