"our app could definitely, effectively bridge the worlds of physical and digital play."
(PRWEB) March 27, 2015
Imagination Playground, LLC, http://www.imaginationplayground.com, creators of the breakthrough play space concept that encourages child-directed, unstructured free play, announced today their launch of their 3D Builder app on the iTunes App Store. Children can build, stack, and connect the blocks—just like they do in real life – offering children an amazing way to bridge the worlds of physical and digital play.
“Research indicates that parents and children that know about Imagination Playground and our physical play experience truly want to engage with our Big Blue Blocks. When we asked our customers and advisors about launching the app, we were told it would make our block play more readily available to children – and our app could definitely, effectively bridge the worlds of physical and digital play”, said Dave Krishock, President, Imagination Playground.
He went on to say, “As we developed and tested our 3D Builder app we noticed that the learning benefits of our block play were quite similar in the physical and digital play worlds – use of creativity, self-expression, communication, collaboration, problem solving, motor skill development – and more. We noticed children move fluidly from design and creation digitally on our app – to actual physical block construction when our Blocks are on hand.”
“The Imagination Playground 3D Builder app is free – available to all – and we encourage parents and classroom teachers to make it available for their children’s use. Demonstrating our app in home and classroom environments has proven a positive experience,” continued Krishock.
Tutorial videos are being developed to demonstrate how to stack, connect, and channel using the Imagination Playground 3D Builder app. The first in the series, Imagination Playground: How to Stack was available on Youtube earlier this week.
The Imagination Playground 3D Builder app was created by Lamplighter Technology, a New York City based tech development company. It is available for free download at itunes.apple.com/us/app/imagination-playground and available on iOS devices. For more information on the Imagination Playground 3D Builder app, visit
