      I really hope to be able to get commercial playground equipment

      sometime to have a fancy playground, but it's pretty tough finding it. I wish I would be socially accepted if I still played on bouncy houses. I miss being a kid.

      I really do wish that they had better commercial playground equipment at my kid's school. They still have the old style metal slides and monkey bars that my kids don't like to play on. I like the look of the equipment you've posted here especially the rock wall. What are they made out of, and do they get really hot during the summer months?

      Its been a while since I popped in here. Where would most city kids be without playgrounds and all this cool stuff.

      Great playground equipment. My little ones love the climbing fram we bought for them for Christmas 2011. We did buy a decent one with a high slide and main tower unit and invested in some Cushionfall from this Playground Flooring site.

      Wow, the good sturdy cedar playground sets are so expensive. Luckily, my dad can build one from scratch, but there are some good ones here for those people who have the money.

      Wonderful fun to be found here, kids love playground sets like these and they run to them like magnets. I had never seen the Helicopter Teeter Totter set before, may want that for myself!

      Playground equipment is really important as it can positively affect the children's innovative potential and well being. A protected, calm and imaginative playground will inspire satisfaction of the perform time even though a dull, very difficult open up area will bring boredom. The assortment of superb playground gear subsequently gains value in this regard. Gear sourced selectively and put in professionally will fulfill the purpose that it is intended for.

      I like the sets where the children get to climb and crawl and use their bodies!

    • TonyPayne profile image

      They have some great playground items these days, but I find a lot are geared to one age or another, and there are few playgrounds that have a large group of items that all join together. At several playgrounds in London that had a lot of things that were interconnected kids of all ages had great fun on them.

      Being bought up with see-saws the word teeter-totter still makes me cringe.

      So many slides these days give off static shocks as well or burn the kids on a hot day.

      How fun!! I want to play on the helicopter teeter totter -:) Haven't seen any playground equipment yet on Squidoo- looks like a great niche! What a fun job that would be to try this equipment out and then post them. Another idea might be playground equipment for schools, and raising money for new sets.
