Rigamajig was developed in 2011 by Cas Holman for Friends of the High Line in collaboration with early learning educators, woodworkers, and children. It was launched in New York City’s High Line Park as the High Line Children’s Workyard Kit and reflects the park’s industrial history, simple, honest materiality, and the organization’s dedication to creating meaningful play opportunities for children and families.

Rigamajig Jr. is a wonderful collection of wooden planks, shapes, wheels, a pulley, ropes, nuts, and bolts.  Valued at $350 and coming with 160 pieces, it’s 1/2” thick Baltic Birch Planks range from 6” – 22” make it large enough to make things to play inside of, but small and light enough to play on a table top.  The quality is top notch and would stand up to even the roughest of builders/players.  It arrives in a nicely made, durable canvas bag that is perfect for storage and neat freaks like us.

We love the open ended opportunities of this product.  It allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.  These are all important components of healthy brain development.  It offered ample opportunities for our children and our preschool children to problem solve and collaborate.

    My almost 5 year old and my 2 year old would go crazy for this. The hours of imaginative play it would create would be amazing!
