Spark and Rocket's Dots building blocks make it to Scottish Edge final

The winner of Scottish Edge will be given the opportunity to pitch for up to £100,000 in grant and loan funding.

Dots, a new line of building blocks that teach kids how to create and learn music, has made it to the final three of this year's Scottish Edge competition.

From start-up firm Spark and Rocket, Dots is aimed at kids aged three to nine years old and are a line of music building blocks that allow children to 'explore, create and learn music'.

The winner of Scottish Edge will be given the opportunity to pitch for up to £100,000 in grant and loan funding.

'Twenty percent of all parents would purchase Dots at a target price of $100, creating 10 million potential customers in the US and in Europe,' read a statement from the Spark and Rocket team.

'Winning Scottish Edge will allow us to launch the product via Kickstarter in April 2017 and fulfill this massive demand. It will enable us to build the team, market the product, complete the design for manufacture and certify the product. We will empower children all over the world to play and learn music but we need your support to do so.'

Spark and Edge's Dots is up against ethical fashion brand NU BLVCK and defibrillator developer SpeyCardio in the Scottish Edge competition.

The public vote will close on November 23rd, 2016 and the winner will be announced on Friday, November 25th, 2016.
