The Imagination Playground is a wonderful part of the Play and Learn children's program of the BrightStart Parenting Workshop. Last summer we experimented with bringing the playground to the Movies in the Park Community Events in Manchester and it was a great hit.
We plan to bring the playground to pre-schools, elementary schools, and public spaces such as parks and gyms... any place where parents can bring their young children to experience this breakthrough in creative play.
