FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
New Construction Toy Encourages Play-Based Learning, Cognitive Development
Trebl Brick System Sets Inspire Imaginations With Unique Round Geometric Shapes
Seattle, Wash. (December 3, 2021): Building on the principles of playful geometry, Trebl System LLC today shared more about the company’s flagship toy that’s perfect for holiday gift ideas: Trebl Building Brick Sets, a unique way to create. Trebl brick set toys have a distinctive design utilizing a round geometric standard, offering innovative ways to make dynamic structures while still allowing a full range of limitless creation.
“Building blocks haven’t just stood the test of time. They’re more popular than ever, but they’ve traditionally come in square and rectangle shapes with little development in design,” said inventor Matthys Van Leeuwen. “The round shape that makes up Trebl’s interlocking brick set leads to a toy that both literally makes those interacting think outside the box and also sparks possibilities beyond play.”
With building set options as varied as rocket ships, sculptures, vases, and countertop organizers, Trebl challenges users to not only come up with new things to build but also new ways to build them. Trebl is the perfect education tool for parents looking to build STEAM—science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics—skills in their children. Trebl teaches creativity by using geometry and math, and is ideal for kids aged seven and up. But Trebl isn’t just a kids’ plaything. It also makes a perfect desk toy or starting point for new trays and containers around the home.
Each set comes with everything users need to put together a chosen design, and buyers can choose among multiple options and price points. Plus, the bricks are fully compatible, letting builders combine sets or make freeform creations. Unlike other interlocking brick toy sets that specify designs for completion, the unique rounded geometric shapes allow both variety and versatility, allowing multiple objects to be made with the same bricks or a portion of the bricks. Additional options to buy individual block types round out the available offerings, but plans are in the works to develop more and more sets over time. Byers looking for gift inspiration will even be able to select from different categories for specific expressions. Trebl sets that spell out “I ♥ U,” “Mom” in hearts shaped from Trebl bricks, and more will be available.
The inspiration for Trebl toy construction sets came on a Christmas Day unlike any other for inventor Matthys Van Leeuwen. While walking his dog in the park, his beloved pet was attacked by two vicious pit bulls. Van Leeuwen jumped in to save his dog, and he was caught in the fray. Arriving paramedics rushed Van Leeuwen to the hospital, where he underwent surgery and spent time in the intensive care unit. During the course of his recovery, Van Leeuwen one day discovered another interlocking block set among the medical equipment. However, on attempting to put the set together, Van Leeuwen felt it offered little in the way of challenge, instead directing creators to put the set together in a specific way piece by piece to complete. Dissatisfied with the rigid, instructions-centered, manual-driven experience, Van Leeuwen’s idea for Trebl grew from the lack of satisfaction with current brick offerings. For Van Leeuwen —who knew he would potentially face a lengthy period of adjustment and post-traumatic stress—developing and experimenting with Trebl became a form of therapy, the outcome of which he is now proud to share with the world.
