NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/17 -- Pinblock, Inc., a building system which reinvents construction sets by making every block exactly the same shape, is set to appear on ABC Television's award winning hit show "Shark Tank" on January 13, 2017 at 9:00 PM PST/EST. Watch and find out what happens when CEO Vladislav Smolyanskyy, a 21-year-old from Ukraine and now living in Brooklyn, New York, will go head to head with the most famous entrepreneurs in the world.

Pinblock's CEO will be pitching the Sharks with his epic display of block toys and his knowledge about the toy industry. Pinblock is a building toy that was solely designed for creative building. Every Pinblock is exactly the same, letting kids spend more time building instead of looking for the right piece.

About Vladislav Smolyanskyy
Vladislav Smolyanskyy was born in Ukraine and grew up under the influence of his self-made entrepreneurial father. While still a child, Vladislav lost his father and the family spiraled into very dark and hard times. In 2006 he and his mother immigrated to Brooklyn, NY where Vlad finally had an opportunity to step into his father's shoes, establish himself as an entrepreneur and bring happiness back to his family.

Feeling alone in a new country Vlad discovered his passion for learning, especially everything related to business. That obsession came in handy when with his friend, at 19 years old; Vladislav quit his job and started his first company within one of the most competitive industries in the country.
