Just delightful!! Unfortunately they are now 'unsafe'. What did you have on your local playground that is now unsafe?

We had metal merry go rounds, but they didn't look like that. My dad would spin it SOOOOOOO fast, I'd hold on tight and let my legs fly!

Oh god, my mom had that on her playground as a kid. She tells us how incredibly fun they were and how half the fun was the danger. Haha. No, we didnt have that as kids, but we did have concrete ground, metal slides, those domes of bars to climb... Umm... Some other things I'm forgetting, I'm sure.

Our town park still has all of the unsafe stuff, lots of fun.

We didn't have that style we had this style which I nearly had my big toe cut off on and saw a girl break her neck on.

Everything is "unsafe" now. Eagle's Nest, Teeter Toter, Merry Go Round, swings are even to find around here at some places.
