In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design speaks with Ryan Hamilton, head of product development at Plus-Plus A/S and head of operations at Plus-Plus USA, makers of open-ended construction toys loved by kids and grownups alike.

On the show, Albritton delves into Hamilton’s backstory from his early experiences at Dan Buckey & Associates to his time as a toy and game buyer at Barnes & Noble. Then the conversation delves into Plus-Plus and the challenges of creating the acclaimed Plus-Plus GO! collection, from which the Street Racing Super Set landed a coveted slot in the Toy Insider’s 15th Annual Holiday Gift Guide in the 5-7 category.
