Remember the playground you visited as a kid? Remember all those beautiful designs that were made of metal? Ever notice that your kids are not playing on metal anymore? That they seem to be playing on rubber and plastic? Do you wonder why? Well, one reason is during the summer those metal playgrounds got really really REALLY hot. The main reason would be, yep, too many safety hazards. But super boo to the fact that you can no longer trick a friend to stick his tongue out to a pole. Childhood was so much more fun then, wasn’t it?
