My Playground Inspires Imaginative Play In Children
For Release Tuesday August 19, 2014
New Jersey – The creators of My Playground, realized that in the age of “all things digital” there is an increasing problem in the way in which Children are taught to play. With the majority of young children spending an average of 5-7 hours per day in front of a screen (video or TV), children are led through scenarios but not reaching into their own imaginations, creating stories and characters. Seeing the need in the marketplace, Miran Nudell and Tomer Eizenberg created My Playground – a portable, versatile game environment that encourages creative process, storytelling, improvisation and imagination!
Imaginative play is vital for cognitive development, spatial awareness, socialization and confidence. “It was important to us to create a versatile, affordable, portable and imaginative game for children to begin exploring their imaginations again, I am confident that My Playground is the perfect solution,” said co-creator Miran Nudell.
Each My Playground comes with; 6 Characters, 6 Character Cards - unique stories about each character, Custom Carrying Case and easily folds up with patent pending bi-directional hinges to fit on a bookcase or shelf – and expands to over 3ft of play environment.
After two years of development, My Playground has launched on Kickstarter, with rewards starting at $29, Miran says “we are excited about making this available to the public, the feedback and support has been fantastic.”
