Where is Rigamajig made?
Quality and local manufacturing is central to our products. The Rigamajig Basic Builder Kit and Simple Machines Add-on Kit have been fabricated using the highest grade Baltic Birch Plywood and finished by hand in Rhode Island. The rope is woven and the canvas buckets sewn in Rhode Island as well. Wingbolts and Hexnuts are made in New York State from 100% recycled nylon. The brackets are made in Pennsylvania.
What is the difference between Rigamajig and Rigamajig Jr?
Rigamajig is much larger, and has many more parts to share. It’s intended for 2-20 kids to play together in a supervised environment. Teachers across the US have been developing lesson plans that use Rigamajig to learn simple machines, mathematics, STEAM topics, and much much more. Best yet, the students design ways to use it in the classroom and all around the school.
See some examples HERE.
Rigamajig Jr. is great for 1-4 kids to play with. It requires less open space, and stores away in it’s own gym-bag sized duffle.
Where are the instructions?
Rigamajig has no right or wrong answers. The pieces are intuitive and fun to figure out. See PROJECT PLANS if you would like some inspiration to get you started.
