This is one example of why our newest creative hero is so inspiring. This boy knows who he is, where he is going, and knows how to learn, play, and grow with Brackitz!
Ray first encountered Brackitz in May when he received two sets for his birthday. By the time Ray became one of our Ambassadors, he has already been using Brackitz to play and learn about engineering.
His mom, Kristen, was so excited to hear about our Creative Hero Ambassador program and they jumped right in to making creation after creation. Ray has already built so many awesome things with Brackitz, we are excited to see what his future will bring.
Ray's father is in the Navy, so what does Ray build? A submarine dry dock!
