Retro Playgrounds

Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard today when I saw this post over on the fabulous Modern Kiddo. I don’t even have kids but I read that blog because Alex and Dottie are so clever and hilarious – it always gives me a dash of happy. Those darn safety standards and insurance companies have made so many modern playgrounds SO BORING. For any of you old enough to remember the days when there was no such thing as a bike/ski/skateboarding helmet, reading their post will bring back fond (?) memories of burning your bum on a sun-drenched metal slide.
