Rigamajig is a large-scale construction kit that contains wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and ropes. Children and thier caretakers can embrace their imaginations as they build amazing things! With no right or wrong answers, the act of playing and building is the goal, not the finished product.
