Why is imagination important? The Imagination Machine encourages pretend play and taps into the creative genius of a child’s mind while demonstrating the importance of friends helping friends.

My five-year-old daughter loved it! She asked, “Can I lose my imagination?” I told her “No”, but if she did, we’d build an Imagination Machine to find it.
