I'm a engineer with people skills. I enjoy politics, English language, mathematics, and programming. In my free time, I build with LEGO bricks, I dance, and I break things (generally in order to fix them again).

comment Removable glue for LEGO models
Standard LEGO brick are probably not the right toy if you need to glue them. I would look at LEGO Duplo bricks, which are specifically designed for younger kids. Then you wouldn't have to glue them.

comment Can I pitch an idea to LEGO?
It looks like that was a special thing. An article on Gizmodo (lego.gizmodo.com/…) refers to Matt, the winner of this years "2014 Mini Model Build contest". I'm assuming that this may be a one-off (or at best annual) competition, not a venue to submit ideas.

comment Can I pitch an idea to LEGO?
I'm very familiar with the monthly mini builds, but I can't find any source that says they are designed by fans. Do you have a source for that?

comment What plastic do Quatro blocks use?
I don't have an exact answer for you, but if you are willing to perform a little destructive testing, you can probably get your answer. This page (boedeker.com/burntest.htm) explains how to determine a type of plastic based on burning/melting it.

comment What part can I use to get the connection
You are going to have to explain a little better than that. If all you are looking to do is connect two neighboring pieces, you can use something like bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=43857 or bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=32140
