Unleash your child’s imagination and creativity with giant blue foam blocks to build..anything. Kids of all ages build with enormous cogs, wheels, spools and tubes to create complicated forts, whimsical castles and vehicles that roll. Imagination Playground stimulates kids’ creativity and inspires them to invent their own ways to play. Unstructured, child-directed play is a critical component of healthy social, emotional, and intellectual development. Unlike toys and games, Imagination Playground blocks don’t dictate to children the way they’re meant to be played.
