Bricks are clingy. Not only do they cling well to our feet when we step on them barefoot, but above all they cling to each other. That's why you can build high with them without everything collapsing. This is made possible by the knob, which sits on most bricks on top and can be stuck into the underside of almost all other bricks.
Advanced builders and more sophisticated sets of bricks use not only the classic stacking of bricks but another technique which is called "SNOT - stud not on top". If you have already built one of our Bluebrixx Specials, you have certainly got to know this construction technique.
There are a lot of special parts, which cause a change in direction of the knobs by 90°.
Without this technique, our realistic models would not be possible, whether it's the skyskrapers of Manhattan or a tank turret. SNOT is indispensable for modern brick sets like Bluebrixx.
