There was a school I had seen in the news-not sure where it was-but they replaced the playground with a "play area" for kids to sit with tablets!Get this,they were worried the kids might get hurt from the play equipment!
If a kid fell off that, it was the short bus from there on out. Steel structure, slide with hills in it, about 15 feet high, and narrow...looked like fun. (falling apart now though, 50+yrs of neglect.)
You cant see it in this pic...wasn't able to fit it in, there was a carosel...if thats what you call it. Circular, wood planks to sit on, spins, fancy. There was also and equally high slide that was the kind where you do not sit on it, just two bars on which you place your legs and hands. Thought at the time the same thing, the good ol days, back when kids just knew how to take a fall. Nowadays its 4 foot slides and chopped up rubber floor landings.
