Valeria Fernandez Cortina Thanks for your note! Imagination Playground Blocks are made of a cross-linked polyethylene foam manufactured in the United States. The closed-cell foam is soft, lightweight, waterproof, and biodegradable. It is resistant to sun, heat, mold, mildew, corrosion and microorganisms. The blocks can last for 10-15 years depending on the level of care and use.
Hi John Nash , I enjoyed reading your idea of bringing play and learning to young children! The organization that I work for, KaBOOM!, recently awarded grants to organizations across the country that are implementing projects that are focused on bringing play everywhere. Here is a link to the grant program and a toolkit you can use related to planning a play everywhere project: https://kaboom.org/playability/play_everywhere. KaBOOM! has also done several playground projects in the Raleigh Durham area and would love to connect with the work that you are doing.
Best of luck to you and your team. Feel free to e-mail me directly at dflanigan@kaboom if you would like to discuss your idea further and to talk more about our respective work.
