About the #13bitBuilder #TFNY "Create-a-Character" Contest

Our very first 13-bit Builder contest is live today! We need your help in decorating our Toy Fair New York 2016 Booth (#3255, February 13th-16th 2016) and want to feature YOUR character, created with Bloxels.

To enter you'll just need to create a character, submit it to the Bloxels Infinity Wall, and enter your information in the entry form at the bottom of this page. Our four winners will be mailed a t-shirt with their character printed on it and we'll also be featuring the winning characters on t-shirts that we'll be wearing in the booth during Toy Fair. One luck grand prize winner will also receive a framed print of their character!

This contest runs now through January 31st, so get building today and remember to submit your entry here!
