Children playing with big blue blocks of Imagination Playground

Imagination Playground

Imagination Playground blocks will return soon!

Young children LOVE the big blue blocks of Imagination Playground! 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. Because Imagination Playground is child-directed and open-ended, it encourages self-expression through joyful play.

Unlike toys and games, Imagination Playground blocks don’t dictate to children the way they’re meant to be played. There is no right or wrong way to play with them, which means even the youngest child can make their own open-ended fun!
