Their "About Us" describes them like this -"At imaginechildhood.com we believe that children should experience the world through their own eyes, ears, fingers, and toes. That direct interaction with nature is the best way to learn about the world, and that open-ended imaginative play is the best way to learn about what it could be.
Part community forum, part storefront, imaginechildhood.com is a place where parents and kids can find their own definition of childhood. On our blog and in our store we offer stories, activities, and innovative products that encourage exploration, creativity, and open-ended unstructured play.So take a moment and imagine childhood… what do you see?"
