The Mississippi Children’s Museum recently revealed its new Rigamajig play system – granted by Morgan Stanley and the national non-profit KaBOOM!.  

Participants in the Museum’s after school program were the first to try the innovative new play set. 

The Mississippi Children’s Museum  is dedicated to inspiring Mississippi’s children from all backgrounds to discover and achieve their potential. The museum’s exhibits, programs, and outreach opportunities provide engaging, explorative, hands-on educational activities for children of all ages.

An interactive set of wooden planks, wheels and pulleys, Rigamajig allows children to develop language, communication and problem solving skills that are key to cognitive development and STEM learning. Rigamajig also provides a unique, engaging play opportunity for kids when access to traditional outdoor playspaces is limited or unavailable.   

Unstructured, child-directed play has proven to help kids develop physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually, yet today’s kids have less time and fewer opportunities to play than any previous generation. 

The grant is part of Morgan Stanley’s ongoing efforts to help give kids a healthy start for lifelong achievement and its commitment to being a strong, reliable partner to its communities.
