Revolutionizing Playtime

Innovative playgrounds lure children away from video games

Implications - Today’s parent demands that a playground stimulates all the senses and encourages mental and motor development while also encouraging children to engage in the physical activity they too often lack. Designers and architects are paving the way for a new breed of jungle-gyms that delivers more than a swing set and slide. In today’s digital world, only the most inventive playgrounds will pull kids away from their consoles and keyboards.
