Imagination Playground™ is a playspace concept that delivers unique, cooperative play opportunities that can be instantly activated anywhere, anytime.
It's a breakthrough playspace system created by architect David Rockwell for Imagination Playground LLC, and uses uniquely shaped foam blocks and loose parts to empower children to design their own course of play.
Each set contains a wide variety of parts: cubes, bricks, cogs, curves and cylinders. The loose parts have holes and shapes that fit together in ways that allow the continuation of a child's idea. A pair becomes a wall. A wall becomes a room. A room becomes a house. The pieces fit together to make immersive play last a long time. The Imagination Playground™ encourages creativity, communication, and collaboration in play.

Imagination Playground™ consists of three core elements that foster a dynamic, child-centered environment. Then, learn more about playing with Imagination Playground™.
Kids play most creatively in settings they can manipulate. Sand and water, for example, serve as raw materials for creativity and sensory exploration.
Imagination Playground™ provides a transformable environment that allows for many types of activities, empowering kids to influence the space around them.
A wide array of movable objects allows each play session to become a new experience.
With Imagination Playground™ Loose Parts, kids create their own narratives and games; build something and tear it down; or simply play to enjoy shapes and textures.
Play Associates provide an open setting where kids can direct their own play.
These trained adults allow play activity to evolve by maintaining a safe and secure environment, and by renewing and varying the supply of Loose Parts. Their job is to ensure a diverse, creative play space.
