While visiting a local museum last month, we had a chance to play with and build using Imagination Playground’s blocks. I think I was just as excited to see these – imaginative – blocks as my children were. They are so unique that they immediately caught our eye and lit our creativity. From vehicles to flowers, we had a fun time building together. In fact if we had the space, I’d love to add them to our educational toy collection. They are so great for the imagination. We’re often browsing Priceminister looking for inventive and interesting toys and gadgets like these that spark the imagination.
WHAT IS IMAGINATION PLAYGROUND: Imagination Playground is an innovative playground equipment system that transforms any space — schools, children’s museums, parks and recreation, daycare centers, camps, hospitals, churches — into a play space that encourages learning, social development, movement, and above all fun. Using Imagination Playground blocks, kids build a new world every day. They make objects like animals, rocket ships, and robots. They make imaginary places like houses, factories, and cities. They make new dramatic scenarios, settings, and games to play. Most important, they make the rules. Because Imagination Playground is child-directed and open-ended, it encourages self-expression through deep, joyful play.
We were very excited to find out that there is also a free 3D Builder App for Imagination Playground! We are able to create and build from our personal devices. Choosing from all of their standard block shapes, we’re given a blank slate to begin fitting the virtual blocks together to create something amazing!
I love that they put the consideration into this app to make it 3D. That is so very important with this style of block. In life, these blocks are bigger than life and together create amazing wonderlands and worlds for children. There are so many shapes and designs, that seeing the full spectrum of your blocks and your design is very important.
So, build that castle and then take an aerial view of your amazing creation!
