The Brain Flakes® brand mission is Engineers Start Here®. That means enabling the world's next generation of engineers through confidence building and spatial learning! Brain Flakes® is the stepping stone to enter the world of engineering!

Our founder discovered quarter sized interlocking plastic discs while in China in 2013. He thought they were really cool and they were popular in China, so he decided to introduce the product to the United States. The name "Brain Flakes" is a play on the words of the cereal brand Bran Flakes and how Brain Flakes® are for your brain!

The Brain Flakes® brand was first showcased in 2014 at New York Toy Fair. Despite not getting much attention at the fair, we decided to launch this awesome product online! We were right! People loved it! While we did not invent interlocking plastic discs (they were actually introduced in the 1950s), we patented an improvement in our discs to make them easier to click together (patent still pending at time of writing), of which we are very proud! The patent was a collaboration between the founder of Brain Flakes®, our injection molding engineer Dileep, and the genius inventor of the Rainbow Loom®, Choon!

Safety is a top priority for us! Brain Flakes® discs are made from premium and tested polyethylene (PE) plastic, they are durable and high quality. Our signature yellow cap jar is travel friendly and reusable- the jar is made from PET and and the cap is made from Polypropylene (PP). All of our products are child safe - BPA, lead, heavy metal, and phthalate FREE! We regularly test our products and they are compliant with ASTM US CPSIA safety regulations.
