Small Idea Has Big Possibilities

Klein’s idea for reusable connecting plastic bottles came to him four years ago in a dream. His plastic bottles look like ordinary water bottles, but they have additional threads in the bottom so they can be screwed together like Tinkertoys. Add connectors, and the bottles can be built into anything from soccer goals to forts to letters of the alphabet.

“Essentially, for something that was trash, I’ve repurposed it into something that can continue to be used. It’s a very simple invention with a big vision.”

His patent for the bottles went through in 2010. Klein hopes his invention will keep plastic bottles out of landfills and also inspire creativity in children.

“Once you connect the bottles at an angle, creativity becomes unlimited.”
