Andrew Comfort

Nominee, Rising Star, 2013 - Q-BA-Maze 2.0


As a boy, Andrew Comfort loved playing with a wooden marble run his grandfather made. Years later, he became a lead designer with a prominent New York City architecture firm. Then one day, inspiration hit and Q-BA-MAZE emerged from the combination of marble run and modular design: just three kinds of inter-locking cubes form marble run sculptures of fish, flowers, buildings, robots, dinosaurs and much more! Now, in partnership with MindWare, Q-BA-MAZE is blossoming as an ever-expanding construction system. Currently, there are seven products in the line, including the multi-award winning Mega Stunt Set, with more on the way.
