Tripp Phillips is now 14 years old and just starting his high school career. At 9, he invented and help develop the world's first water releasable adhesive for Lego type building bricks. His school project turned into an International Invention Award through the Torrence Legacy Foundation. He received a patent at 10 making him one of the youngest patent holders in US history.
At 12 he achieved his lifelong dream of appearing on ABC's Shark Tank along with his sister Allee and his Dad Lee. Making a deal with Mr Wonderful himself was Tripp's ultimate goal and he made it come true. Tripp and Allee help to run the day to day operations of Le-glue along with their dad and mom.
Lee is a director of a large Textiles, Flooring and Materials Laboratory in Dalton GA. Tripp and Allee's mom Dana is a Graduation coach helping at risk teens meet their goal of receiving a Diploma. Dana uses Tripp's story very often to inspire those in High School.
"Lots of fun, very very fancy and expensive even though we didnt have to pay for anything."
Listen how Tripp and Lee made a last second change in their presentation while just about to walk into the studio.

Le-Glue is a family business that manufacturers its product right here in the USA. Le-Glue was invented to "Stop those Messy Break-ups" by helping to hold bricks together over 10 times stronger. The best part is that Le-Glue is water releasable so you just soak them in water and the glue releases, returning your bricks back to original condition. It was created for kids by a kid. It is safe non-toxic and easy to use.
