New Imagination Playground website launched

KaBOOM! and Rockwell Group are proud to present the launch of the new Imagination Playground™ website!

About Imagination Playground™:

Imagination Playground™ is an innovative, breakthrough concept in play that will get your kids thinking and moving in a whole new way. Uniquely designed Imagination Playground™ Loose Parts (moveable objects, such as blue foam blocks in various shapes and sizes, crates, fabric and carts) are part of a changing array of elements that allow children to constantly reconfigure their environment and to design their own course of play.

As you may have seen, KaBOOM! and internationally-acclaimed design firm Rockwell Group have teamed up to conduct several pilots of this concept across the nation with fantastic results. At each site, there was no end to the creativity, collaboration and communication that occurred while kids played with this great new system!

Starting in February, the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City will have an exhibit that will unveil the creative process behind the concept, and provide a preview of Imagination Playground™’s first-ever destination playground opening just outside the doors of the museum this summer.
