H is a big Lego fan and has some fab models that he’s built, but we’ve never really found a good place to display them. At the moment they languish a bit on a shelf in a cupboard with doors (althought the doors are usually open). I was really intrigued by the idea of being able to hang up some of his models on the wall by using compatible tape. The Sticky Brick Tape is about as thick as a ‘plate’ rather than a ‘brick’ if that makes sense to you. The ‘blobs’ (I’m sure there there’s a better term, but I can’t think of one just now) are the same size as the real ones and they work together, but the tape is rubbery, so it can bend and even loop the loop if that is what you want it to do. You do need to be careful that you have a good connection before you let go of a prized model that has been some hours in the making.
You can stick it onto a range of surfaces, but a smooth, clean one would be best if you want it to stay up for a good length of time. The tape comes in 1 metre rolls, but if you want a longer piece than that, you can easily use 2 or more together and just line them up. You won’t be able to see the join unless you are up quite close. The tape comes in four colours: red, grey, blue and green. It certainly adds a new more vertical aspect to your model making.
If you’d like to win some tape of your own to display creations or as part of the interior design of a room, I have a competition for you. Enter via the Gleam widget here.
