If you are around my age *cough cough* or older, what do you remember about playgrounds growing up? I bet you remember metal slides that seared your legs upon impact, or merry go rounds (which I haven't seen at a park for ages), or the lack of climbing walls, tunnels, climbing mesh walls, rocking boats etc. Playgrounds have definitely evolved since I was a child! Here is a fun, brief history infographic Backyard Discovery has created about the evolution of playsets and swing sets. ;-)
* Disclosure: This post was written as part of the Backyard Discovery Ambassador campaign, which I am proud to be a part of! I was provided with a Backyard Discovery Playset and other tools from Backyard Discovery to help facilitate my reviews and posts during the campaign, but all posts and opinions in them are purely my own and my kiddo's.
