When designing items to live in a Children’s Museum, a word that gets thrown around a lot is “robust”. The items we use in the Children’s Museum have to withstand more than 100,000 little fingers and hands each year!

A perfect example of a robust item at the museum is our Tumble Zone blocks. Made from the same material as bike helmets and bumpers, these blocks are made to last! The material is called EPP – Expanded Polypropylene. Designed and manufactured in Canada, these blocks can be bumped, dropped, stepped on and poked with little to no effect. The perfect block for a tall tower in this gallery!

Next time you’re in, see if you can find the sun, moon, cloud and planet blocks to include in your tower!

Watch today’s fun fact here.
