Gear up for our newest addition to Pretend City – The Rigamajig!

We build better brains. That’s our mission. It’s at the core of every exhibit, educational program, and even in our dance parties.

We are continuously creating innovative ways to inspire the youngest generation of movers, shakers, and doers in the community.

We asked you to help bring the Rigamajig to Pretend City, and help you did! Now, are you ready to tinker and create?

What is a Rigamajig you ask? The Rigamajig is an interactive building kit with specialized wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, and bolts that are all interchangeable and connectable. Picture a large-scale Lego set with pulleys, strings, wheels and builder boards. The possibilities of creations are as endless as your imagination.

The Rigamajig aligns perfectly with Pretend City because it not only supports learning through play, but also enhances your child’s confidence and social skills. The set encourages children and grownups to play together and kids to make friends.

Watch this quick video by KaBOOM!, creator of the Rigamajig, to see what it’s all about!

“The Rigamajig is the exact type of activity that Pretend City is encouraging to address the vulnerabilities in social skills that have been identified in recent data relating to Kindergarten readiness (See data on Early Development Index),” said Sandra Bolton, Pretend City Children’s Museum’s Executive Director. “We are so grateful to our supporters of #GivingTuesday who made this exhibit possible for the Museum.”

We can’t wait to see what you create using the Rigamajig at Pretend City!
