LEGO lovers, DUPLO darlings, take note. Today Klyde Warren Park is unveiling a new type of playground equipment that will blow other toy blocks out of the water. Imagination Playground is made up of large, blue foam blocks, mats and tubes that young builders can stack and connect to form little cars, bridges, forts – whatever they can think to create.
The company that created the soft, lightweight and nontoxic blocks is based in New York City, where the first Imagination Playground Park opened in July 2010. Now the playground sets are popping up across the globe.
Klyde Warren Park is debuting its own Imagination Playground in a Cart during a public play session this morning from 10am–noon, and the equipment will be rolled out for open play each Tuesday from 9am–noon.
