Product Description

Rigamajig Simple Machines Kit includes: 57 parts total, including gears, leavers, belts, cranks, axels and a wheel-pulley to expand the Basic Builder Kit.

Designed by Cas Holman, Rigamajig is a building system of carefully shaped wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and rope designed for collaborative makers to follow their curiosity through play.

Engaging the inquisitive mind and creative spirit, Rigamajig empowers children to think three dimensionally. Children often say “this isn’t a toy, this is real!” as they build machines and structures larger than themselves.

Rigamajig inspires group STEM problem solving and play in three dimensions to explore mechanics, engineering and structure. (Age 3+)
