Imaginate Exhibition at Arizona Science Center

If you’re looking for some creative activities for your kiddos over the holidays, I highly recommend going to Arizona Science Center and checking out Imaginate. It will delight and spark their imagination!

Imaginate: Dream. Create. Build.
The exhibition is divided into five main themes, each representing a possible route along the pathway to innovation.

Dream Big

Innovation often occurs when a big dream or passion grips you and must be pursued.  Explore Paper Airplanes, Tumbling Dice and So You Think you Can Fly.

Expect the Unexpected 

Science is a process of questioning. Explore Ferrofluid Experiences, Interactive Projections and Materials Playground.

ASC_Imaginate_4

Collaborate or Compete 

Colleagues or competitors can spur us to achieve more than we could on our own. Explore Sound Panels, Telltale Heart and Making Faces

Try, Try and Try Again

Innovation is neither quick nor easy. In this series of experiences, patience and observation are key in investigating materials and their properties. Explore Gear Tree/Kinetic Sculptures, Create Something New and Stop-Motion Animation.

Look to the World

Whether we dwell in the frigid Arctic or the dense rain forest, we rely on innovative processes and the making of innovative products to survive in our various environments. Explore Innovation Around the World and Question of the Day.

Nordstrom, Here We Come!

We are so thrilled and proud to have Nordstrom as our very first national retailer. It has been a year in the making. I’m pretty sure my giddy enthusiasm scared the sweet, unsuspecting UPS man who showed up to pick up our shipment.

Box Play for Kids Now Found in Museums and UncommonGoods.com



When we started this Box Play for Kids journey, a dream of ours was to sell our eco-friendly stickers in art museums across the country. I am pinching myself as I type this, because Box Play for Kids can now be found at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum of California, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and the Phoenix Art Museum.  We are honored to be a part of the offerings of these prestigious institutions.


And look for us soon at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.



And more huge news? Visit our friends at Uncommon Goods and you can find two Box Play for Kids collections. Our Transportation Collection and the Music & Artist Collection. Uncommon Goods offers such unique and creative products. We’re long time fans and honored to be part of the family.
