ST AUGUSTINE, Fla., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bricks 4 Kidz® announces a new preferred vendor relationship with Brik, a startup known for its popular laptop covers and wall tiles that are compatible with LEGO® Bricks.
Because Bricks 4 Kidz uses LEGO® Bricks in its STEM-based after-school curricula, camps and workshops, Brik will bring a fun new dimension to the innovative projects students create, design and build in the various programs.
In addition, Bricks 4 Kidz is the first retail U.S. preferred vendor relationship for Brik. That means parents will be able to purchase Brik components directly from their favorite Bricks 4 Kidz franchise.
"Bricks 4 Kidz is always looking for new ideas and innovations to make STEM-based learning engaging and exciting for all children," said Bricks 4 Kidz Marketing Director, Robyn Ewing.
Blake Furlow, Chairman of the Board of Creative Learning Corporation (OTC: CLCN), the parent company of Bricks 4 Kidz, added "Bricks 4 Kidz is excited to develop new relationships that will create additional income streams for our franchisees."
Brik is far from finished with coming up with new products, and its innovative company culture will add to the enrichment for Bricks 4 Kidz programs. Recently, Brik introduced glow-in-the-dark bricks that can be shaped into cool, customized nightlights and laptop covers. The firm's devoted fan base has also used its 1x1 bricks to create pixel designs for the tiles and laptop covers; as a result, its website now has a gallery of 5,000 templates and counting.
"We think Bricks 4 Kidz is an amazing company, and we're very excited to see what this relationship brings," said Brett Miller, CEO and co-founder of Brik. Brik got its start in 2015 when its founders launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring its wildly popular LEGO® compatible laptop cases to the market. Since then, Brik has expanded its offerings to adhesive LEGO® compatible wall tiles, which allow kids to build on their walls. It was the grand prize–winning invention on Steve Harvey's TV show on ABC, "Funderdome."
Brik is on the cusp of launching yet another innovation called Brik Ball. It's a marble run that's compatible with LEGO® Bricks. When Brik Ball is ready to launch, it will definitely bring more possibilities for the fun hands-on learning that a Bricks 4 Kidz class is known for!
