The history of STAX

Light STAX has been around for a couple of years. Here you can read about the history of STAX.


In 2010 the bright idea for STAX is born. Early 2012 the first prototypes of  STAX JUNIOR (a DUPLO® size building block) were shown at the world’s biggest Toy Fair in Nürnberg.

In 2014 STAX Junior was released onto the European market.

STAX Junior won multiple awards

STAX Junior already received numerous awards that we are proud of. It’s been a New York Toy Fair favorite and it was nominated Best of Toy Fair. Last year the awards just kept coming in.

STAX Junior – Light up your play

STAX Junior lets you build with light. These DUPLO® size LED light bricks have been on the market since 2014 and are a great success in both Germany and the United States of America. In September 2016 STAX will introduce its latest development, the LEGO® size STAX.

How does STAX Junior work?

The STAX Junior are DUPLO® size LED STAX that come in 3 sizes (2×2, 2×3 and 2×4) and 8 different colors (red, blue, yellow, orange, green, pink, white and black). They light up when connected to the USB smart base, which gets its power from either batteries or a USB connection. The STAX easily light up when stacked together. One baseplate is strong enough to light up to more than hundred STAX.

The benefits of STAX Junior

STAX Junior can be used individually or together with DUPLO®. It’s a total new way of playing with toy bricks. The USB smart base has 4 different lighting functions, lights on, blinking, glowing, or automatic shut down after 15 minutes.

LIGHT STAX junior awards

STAX was succesfully funded on Kickstarter & Indiegogo!

In 2016 the new STAX system, which are compatible with LEGO®, were launched on Kickstarter. Thanks to our backers we raised over €40,000 on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo! Amazing!

As a special we made Lamp STAX in both black and white. These are great to light up your brick villages. Both have a transparent white and yellow 1×1 round plate to light them up.

It has been a great journey so far and there are great times ahead. We would also like to thank you for all the positive messages we have received so far!

The launch of our STAX webshop

In October 2016 we opened up our online store. Both STAX System and STAX Junior are available for purchase. The webshop also has all the parts, regular and transparent STAX bricks.

The bright future  of STAX

STAX is part of the STAX system family and will continue to surprise. The first born was a bigger version of STAX (JUNIOR). The future includes Sound STAX, Sensor STAX, Motor STAX and more. All of these will become available as fully compatible 2×4 and 4×4 stud bricks. We may also develop other STAX brick sizes. Let us know what kind of STAX you would like to see!
