Michelle Obama, Let’s Move! and Imagination Playground partner to transform children’s lives.

In our neverending mission to transform children’s lives through play, Imagination Playground has been honored to receive the support from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Her Let’s Move! initiative has dedicated itself to solving the problem of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and have the ability to pursue their dreams.

how does this partnership come to life?

Let’s Move! and Michelle Obama have partnered with Imagination Playground and KaBOOM! to cut the ribbon of new, innovative Imagination Playground locations around the country; including donations of new playgrounds in Washington DC, Philadelphia, the Louisiana Children’s Museum in New Orleans, and the Woodlands Children Museum in Texas.

This allowed thousands of children and families to witness monumental impact of Imagination Playground on their neighborhoods, communities, schools, etc.


michelle obama and imagination playground share a common vision: transforming children’s minds, bodies and spirits through play.

Throughout the years, Michelle Obama famously made impassioned pleas for play, mentioning that: “We as a society need to redefine for our kids what play is. We as a society need to make physical activity a part of our kids’ daily lives again, and we need to do it in a way that is easy, affordable and fun — not just for kids but for parents“.

We could not agree more, and look forward to an exciting future to our privileged relationship with Let’s Move! and First Lady Michelle Obama. May hundreds of new playgrounds transform thousands of children’s minds, bodies, and spirits.
