From the website:



ZURU Mayka Toy Brick Tape allows bricks from LEGO, Mega Bloks, and Kreo to be built on any surface — even upside-down!

Mayka Toy Brick Tape is a flexible rubber strip with a reusable adhesive backing that can stick to any smooth surface.

On its non-sticky side it's covered in a 4-stud pattern that fits into the holes on the bottom of LEGO bricks.


Imagine being able to build around corners, on curved surfaces, or even onto the sides of that sailing ship you've just spent hours building.

You forgot to engineer a point of attachment for that sweet dinosaur-smashing cannon?

No problem: snip a length of LEGO tape with a pair of scissors, stick it on the hull, mount your cannon, and be on your way.


Walls, fridge doors, or even shoes offer limitless possibilities, transforming surfaces into a connected base for construction toy bricks and figures — the "LEGO of Things."

It's so simple you wonder why no one thought of it before (we’re looking at you, LEGO).

Starting life as Nimuno Loops on Indiegogo — and raising an astonishing £1.2million — before being licensed by ZURU, Mayka Toy Brick Tape is all set to be a colossal global hit.


Features and Details:

• Pink, Aqua, Lime, Purple, Red, Black, Grey, Sand, Green

• Non-toxic silicone

• 78-inch roll


$21 (LEGOs not included).
