- Interlocking toy bricks may also have been invented by Arnold Levy or "Mr. Gilbert" for Minibrix, although these are likely inspired by the similar products above. Again, these are rubber bricks that are thought to possibly have inspired the plastic interlocking bricks.
- The plastic interlocking brick concept was invented by Hilary Fisher Page for the Bri-Plax brand-- later modified to KiddiCraft Self-Locking Bricks, which is what LEGO used to model its first Automatic Binding Bricks.
