David Dripps and Brett Miller of Menlo Park, California are the two entrepreneurs behind Brik Tile, a modern set of building blocks that allows kids to build walls. And yes, they’re removable and work with other building block brands including LEGO® and Mega Bloks. They’re pitching Brik Tile on Steve Harvey’s Funderdome against Hang-o-Matic, a picture-hanging tool.
Brik Tile is designed with a sticky adhesive backing so kids can easily mount their creations on a wall. A 300-piece kit with four 10×10 tiles sells for $40 on Amazon (see link above). Dripps and Miller have the advantage of being proven successful salesmen. They raised more than $181,000 on Kickstarter to get Brik Tile to where it is today. A 6-tile Brik Tile kit sells on their website for $60. And it’s not their first product. Steve Harvey’s Funderdome airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC, right after Celebrity Family Feud.
