PLAY IS A PRECIOUS
NATURAL RESOURCE
WORTH SAVING.

For kids, play comes naturally.

But the times & places where
free play used to thrive are vanishing.

  • BUSY
    SCHEDULES
  • MORE
    SCREEN TIME
  • ORGANIZED
    ACTIVITIES
Compared to the 1970s, kids now spend 50% less time in unstructured outdoor activities.

Our busy lifestyles along with shrinking outdoor play spaces
threaten the habitat of free play. We’re working to change that.

UNSTRUCTURED PLAY
IS THE BEST KIND.

What’s so priceless
about unstructured play?

Fun is fuel. Kids at play don’t realize how much they’re accomplishing.
Unstructured play helps kids build these important developmental pillars.

  • PHYSICAL

    How fast can you run? How far can you jump? How high can you climb? Play is how you find out.

  • SOCIAL

    Collaboration. Sharing. Communication. Negotiation. During unstructured play, kids work on all the above.

  • SENSORY

    Look at that. Touch this. Listen to me. Play can exercise & develop sensory processes while kids have fun.

PLAY SHOULD BE ACCESSIBLE
TO PEOPLE OF ALL ABILITIES.

Play can break down barriers —
figuratively and literally.

Overcoming challenges & discovering new possibilites are some of the greatest
benefits of play. And everyone should be able to participate in that.

Here are some ways to make sure you can get everyone in on that action:

SAVING PLAY & SAVING THE PLANET
GO HAND-IN-HAND.

We believe that the world needs play, but play also needs a world.

That’s why we strive to be green. And not just corporate-buzzword green — we’re committed to sustainable manufacturing processes. Here’s what we’re doing to take care of the planet so kids can play on it for generations.

We recycle 95% of the waste we generate.

Plus virtually all our playgrounds & packaging are made with recycled, recyclable & biodegradable materials. Right down to the glue on our boxes.

We’re 99.9999% PVC-Free.

Thanks to Eco-Armor® our smart, durable alternative to PVC coatings.

We Track & Reduce Our Entire Carbon Footprint.

We track all greenhouse gases our company and our partners put into the environment. It’s the honest way to measure our impact & make a change.

We Source Locally

Over 70% of our manufacturing supplies come from vendors within150 miles of our facility. That means less fuel burned in transportation.

KIDS ARE THE REAL
PLAY EXPERTS.

So we involve them in the design process.

We call it “play testing.” Early in the process, we create prototypes of our designs and bring kids in to play on them. We watch, consult & listen. And then we revise our prototypes to make them better.

OUR PLAY ENGINEERS
ARE THE BEST IN THE BIZ.

Meet the people that make the magic happen.

They study child development and architectural design. But mostly they study how kids interact with our concepts & figure out how to make that interaction more fun.
